Annnnnnd it’s mine.Deviating from all this truck talk, going to test drive this guy tomorrow
2010 S5, 4.2L V8, 6spd. Wife is not impressed.
Beautiful, congrats! Keep an eye on that carbon build-up on the intake manifold and you should be good to go. I've loved those cars since they came out....super nice!
Thanks. I have been reading up on that thoroughly. The dealer actually gave me the repair orders of the work done after they took it in. Recall for replacing the cats. Fixed the oil filter base leak, which requires removal of the intake manifold. They said the carbon buildup wasn’t an issue. But they did do the fuel system/intake treatment. So who knows. Drives like a dream, they let me look under it on the lift and nary a leak or spot of rust (was a Florida car for the majority of its ownership). Super excited.Beautiful, congrats!

Not sure why you have to remove the entire center console to swap out a shift boot ring in order to make different knobs work. It looks and feels much better though. OE Acura Type S knob. Because racecar.
Save the manuals! Great work guys! Awesome rides.
Supercharged != supercharger. Semantics are shitty. No different than a fake purse saying "Real Leather" on a tag attached to it.The V6 is supercharged and the I4 is turbo, right?
They should definitely stop using “T” on non-turbo engines.

You can have both. But most euros are using an electric super on their turbos to reduce the pressure build up time.
I think common usage should override technicality. If the engine uses a supercharger, electric or mechanical, to spool the turbo, I’ve always heard that referred to as twincharging.Historically, a turbocharger is just a specific type of supercharger.
That's gotta be a hoot! Doesn't the T in 3.0T stand for turbo though haha?
Tsupercharged ( silent T)........From what I can gather , Audi decided to keep the T for force induction engines regardless of the source (turbocharged or supercharged) also they are comfortable with the T moniker because the engine is a TFSI (Turbo fuel stratified injection) therefore technically not wrong but silly as far as I'm concerned. The Supercharged badge looks much better and corrects this.
