Singapore - On a quiet Saturday night, while everyone is deep asleep in their beds, a menacing Audi S5 B8 is prowling - for its next prey.

Meet Eric’s Audi S5 Sportback, an Audi with a V6 Supercharged engine. They are available with Audi’s quattro system. A sedan that offers luxury and comfort, it is quiet and rides comfortably. Yet, it can munch up many other performance cars on the streets. This is one of the many reasons Eric decided to choose this car after selling off his previous ride, a Volkswagen Golf GTI. It has also been one of his dream cars since young.

Having owned the car for slightly over a year now, Eric enjoys the car very much still. He has since changed to a set of Rays forged rims to enhance the look of the car. He has recently changed his filters as well as his exhaust to a Supersprint unit. Now we can hear that Supercharger whine we all love.

Having asked what are his future plans for the car or any other modifications he will be doing to the car, Eric replied, saying he is considering facelifting his current headlights and tailights to the ones from the B8.5 Audis.

The interior comes with an S5 steering wheel and Nappa leather sport seats. Leather finishings on the centre console and doors. Although the car is heavy, and might not win other performance cars on acceleration, but it is an autobahn blaster and can sustain high speed for long distances. Eric has also tuned up the engine to Stage 2.

Eric has been an Audi fan since young despite his father preferring BMWs. If he has an option to upgrade in the future, he would love an Audi RS5 or Audi R8 or maybe even a manual S4. But that's still in the distant future, he said. For now, he is satisfied with his current S5. It brings a smile on to his face when he starts the car after a tiring day at work. This is Eric’s Audi experience.
