Owner Review

2013 Audi A5 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

- shares

I bought this 2013 Audi 2.0 TFSI A5 Coupe at the beginning of September 2019 and could not be happier. I am only 20 years old so this is only my second car, my first being a 2011 Holden Commodore Wagon. I have grown up in family that has had many different cars that we take pride in; my father owns a 1967 Pontiac Firebird, a 2017 HSV R8 LSA and my mother owns a Lexus RC 350 Racing Coupe. So naturally, wanting to own a nice car passed onto me.

I bought this car for $22,500 off the first owner with 100,000km on the clock. It is in immaculate condition and doesn't have a scratch.

I have made a few changes to this car in the short time I have owned it. I have given it a little bit more power with an APR Stage 1 tune, black rims, flat bottom steering wheel, RS 5 style grille, paddle shift extenders and many more little things.

I love this car. It handles like a dream through corners and now that it has been tuned, it can really get up and going quickly.

I love the way it looks, the way it feels and everything in between. I had never contemplated owning an Audi as my family has never really owned a European car, but then someone at my work suggested taking one for a test. After only 10 minutes I knew had my answer.

Mine also has the optional panoramic glass roof that tilts up, and I love this feature and love opening it up on a nice Summer's day. My main dislike about the car is the space in the back seats. But I knew when I bought it that it may be a problem so I can't complain too much. I am 20 and single, so owning a small coupe isn't really too much of an issue for me. I am going to try and enjoy it before it becomes impractical.

This car has been very reliable for me, and I am yet to have an issue with it. I had it serviced recently for a very reasonable $315 when everyone was telling me before I bought it that it would be around $600.

One thing I do not like about these cars is how everything is optional, as I am used to growing up with Holdens and other cars where most things are standard. It's just small things like reversing camera and other little things.

These cars are very expensive when they are brand new off the showroom floor and I couldn't see myself buying one for $90,000 down the track. I certainly do think that when they are second hand that they are very good and well worth it.

I hope to be able to have an RS5 or something of that nature in the future!
