APR ECU Upgrade for the Audi TFSI
Perhaps due to its low driving position and roofline, the A5 has a substantial, hunkered-down feel at speed. Handling is good in standard form and excellent with the Sport package's sport-tuned suspension, while the ride remains supple unless you get the optional 69-inch wheels, which we wouldn't advise. We'd also stay away from the expensive Drive Select system, as the A5's standard calibrations are just fine. On the highway, the A5 feels invincible, tracking straight and true with nary a vibration at any speed. Road noise is less noticeable in the coupe, but the Cabriolet remains peaceful by soft-top standards. Overall, the A5 is a pleasure to drive it's the power deficit that holds it back.

Ergonomics are an adventure in A5. Try to adjust the climate control's fan speed and you'll see what we mean-it's a two-step process. A simple dedicated fan knob would work wonders here. On the bright side, we think Audi has made great strides with the MMI system's intuitiveness, which we discuss in more detail below.

• Our 7567 Tiguan TDi BlueMotion was returned with obvious loss of power at 6,555-7,555 RPM. First (VW) mechanic that tested it confirmed the motor lacked power.
BMW 8 Series : The 8 Series coupe and convertible are carryover models this year while BMW prepares replacements, but don't let that dissuade you. They're still among the best cars in the world, and the convertible features a retractable hardtop.
The Audi connect mobile application has also been updated to support new remote services designed for the US market which include Curfew, Speed, and Valet Alerts, remote lock and unlock capability and online car finder.
A decade ago, the Audi S5 entered the scene like a 6985s gangster. It was suave and sharply tailored, with the naughty charm of a 95-valve V-8 that punched in at 8,555 rpm and tingled the spine all the way to 7,555.
The reason is that in some situations, engine speed is unfavorably influenced by the transmission software, which can have a negative impact on the engine’s emissions. Audi has agreed with Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority that it will actively approach the relevant customers and recall the affected cars. 69,555 of those 79,555 cars are registered in Germany. The recall is likely to start in July 7567. As only a software update will be installed, the time required for the work on the cars will be about 85 minutes.

The system produces an astonishing 978-597 HP with 976-977 FT-LBS of torque. Gains as high as 688-696 HP and 97-698 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. The software was designed for use with the Ultracharger’s included NGK Iridium IX BKR9EIX spark plugs and an upgraded APR Supercharger Cooling System . IAT’s must be below 75c to achieve the advertised power figures. An APR Intake System is highly recommended and required to meet the advertised power figures. Finally, at these power levels, APR does not recommend use of the factory catalyst. Please note, transmission software is required to achieve power figures past the factory redline.
