Whoa! This thing is nice and decent mileage on it.
What is the current replacement value, probably around R750k?

Retail I believe is around R280k odd, trade around 240k. To replace, up until the new model launch which I'd say its a fair comparison with options comes to R820k. New model looking at R920k.

Really a lot of car for the money. Basically classic Audi ethos, fast, comfortable, safe(Quattro) I in a practical package, 4 doors and an enormous boot.

There are guys overseas who have travelled 200 000 miles or over 300 000km without many issues.

Most dealers seem to target sales for desperation, and offer obscenely low, to max profits. Can't blame them though since the classic model of used sales doesn't do well.

I love this car, it is why I replied earlier. Good luck with sale.
Also love it. Arguably looks better than the F/L, and embarrasses the RS5 in straight line power at Jhb altitude.

Did a little write up on it a while back, when I was looking at getting into automotive writing.

S5 Sportback used purchase

Revealed back in 2009 at the Frankfurt motorshow, the Audi S5 was a particularly interesting move from the German manufacturer. Audi had three body styles for the S5 namely the Cabrio, Coupe, and the four-door coupe, a concept many believe to have been popularised by the Mercedes CLS. The base of the vehicle is essentially the Audi S4, with a supercharged V6, a move that was initially criticized for being departure from tradition, however later lauded as its performance clearly punched above its weight, no pun intended, and was actually a return to Audi forced induction history albeit with a Supercharger. The vehicle was badged as a “V6T” from the factory with no real indication why they went for “T” rather than “S”.

The car is quick, as in very quick, both off the line, thanks to the Quattro AWD system, and again once on the go. Now, there is no running away from the fact that I am from Jhb, which as a car enthusiast means I am well aware that a naturally aspirated car (no turbo or supercharger), suffers from losses due to Jhb being at around 1650 meters above sea level. These losses are mitigated by systems that force more air into the engine , with a turbocharger this is accomplished by forcing a tiny wheel in the engine bay to spin due to exhaust gases, and a supercharger does the same thing but with a belt attached to the engine. This and thanks to the magic of Quattro means the car goes from 0-100 in Jhb at around 5.2 seconds, and achieves a quarter mile time of around 13.6 seconds. For some perspective on this IOL published its list of Quarter Mile Kings earlier in 2017, which had the following cars achieving the same time.

Aston Martin Vantage S Roadster 4.7 321kW/490Nm - 13.6
Audi S5 Sportback 3.0 supercharged 245kW/440Nm - 13.6
Audi TTRS 2.5 turbo 250kW/450Nm - 13.6
BMW 650i 4.4 turbo 300kW/600Nm - 13.6
BMW 1M ` 3.0 turbo 250kW/500Nm - 13.6
BMW M235i 3.0 turbo 240kW/450Nm - 13.6
Range Rover Sport SVR 5.0 supercharged 405kW/680Nm - 13.6

For the record, every vehicle below the S5 Sportback in the above list was actually 10ths of a second slower. Some noteworthy vehicles, which tested even slower, include the similar year models of the Audi RS5 and the BMW M3 M-DCT, and the Porsche Carrera S, and the BMW 435i, but the best would have to be the Aston Martine Rapide, as it costs multiples of the S5 Sportback, and is predominantly a similar concept.
The vehicle seems to have been designed around easy speed, doing very well do dial out the sensation of going that fast. Three words come to mind, quiet, refined and undeniably comfortable.

Enough about the performance though, we do not live on a racetrack. The vehicle draws on the excellent looks of the A5/S5 platform while at the same time being practical with its four doors and hatchback boot. A boot that in may cases proves to be more practical than a typical SUV/CUV, so practical in fact, I have managed to fit 6 dining room chairs, fully set up in the boot with the seats down at the same time. Features are good with a potent Bang & Olufsen Sound System, which provides supreme clarity, and bass levels that might have you searching for a Subwoofer in the boot, it is there too, however they have also cleverly hidden it in the dashboard, contributing to the sensation of it being larger than it actually is.

The car comes with Nappa leather which is soft, supple and hard wearing, but can also come with Alcantara inserts which is essentially an artificial suede which you don’t have to worry about getting wet or dirty, as it cleans fairly easily. The interior has many typically plastic inlays covered in carbon fibre both front and back, with dual zone climate control, and a sunroof. Naturally one of the most striking features of the car is the daytime running lights which have aged well over time.

V6T would require a topup of oil between services, but it is considered “normal”. The wife’s would take 500ml at around 10000km after a service. Never bothered to check if Audi actually filled it to max, but it never smoked. You could actually drive with the oil warning to the service interval time/kilometer methinks, but we never tried.

One of the best cars that ever graced the inside if my garage.
