Audi_B8_A5_Avant_Garde_M510_20x95_HR_Springs_AWE_Tuning_Exhaust_-1 Today we fitted this B8 Audi S5 cabrio with quite a few performance upgrades. While the B8 Audi S5 is no slouch to begin with, the OEM B8 S5 exhaust is a touch… quiet. Mod Expert Alan (x8006) brought in this S5 to be fitted with an AWE Exhaust, H&R Springs and Avant Garde wheels.

H/T to Mod Expert Alan for making the recommendations to get this car to come out the way it did.
