Default Which A5 should i buy 2008-2010

Hey all newbie to the forum and also newbie to AUDI..
I am letting go the Bimmer and moving on.. After trying to convince myself to go for a 335i Coupe i dont know something about that car was not comfortable.

So.. fast forward i
have to decide between the 2.0t or 3.2 S line (The v8 would be nice but yeah that's another story and $$$)
The 2.0t Felt a little gutless to be honest..

so any suggestion or things to look out for?

Does the 2.0 have room to upgrade and that etcc more then the 3.2?

Cheers !

The 4 banger actually has a bit more torque.

as far as room for improvement there are a couple easy mods that will wake it up.

ECU reprogram is quick and cheap and really helps out. I did that and it really woke it up. they say it adds around 60-80HP depending on the tune.

also the 4 pot gets better fuel mileage

also in 2010 they got the LED tail lights

hope this helps!

I got 2.0T, gutless? hardly.
So responsive,... just a light press on the gas and it goes.
If I'm the first at the traffic lights, when it turns green, I'm way out of the intersection while everyone else is still back there,
and my transmission is set to D, not the S mode!!!
no, 2.0T is nothing but gutless
