Well i bought a 2011 Q5 2.0 for my wife and and absolutely loves the car. I wanted to add a little more power without braking the bank. Is there a good tune that doesnt cost so much?. Only mod i will do to the car is just a tune and nothing else. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure of a good tune but I see those turbos go out quite often... the waste gate develops play and you start to loose boost then causing a CEL. Not sure if I'd want to puch the turbo much more than it is designed unless your Mech savy. Good luck. My wife loves her Q5 too!

I went ahead and dropped it off at Audi back on the 9th of this month for oil consuming test. After 260 miles light came back on for low oil drive to dealer and sitting there since yesterday. Waiting on what there gonna tell me. I got 77k miles and itís a 2011.
