2009 A4 & A5 Fuel Door Release.

Nov 30

As of 2009 the Audi A4, A5 and S5 will have a new type of fuel filler cap opening system. Audi will continue to use the button style opening in the Q7, A6, A8 and TT so there will now be two ways to open your fuel door, depending on what Audi you have. The fuel door will continue to be on the passanger side to prevent the driver from stepping in oil at the service station when refueling thier vehicle. You will just have to remember a few new steps at the pumps:

First, you will have to remember the vehicle has to be unlocked in order to open the push style fuel door.

Third, after opening the fuel door, unclick the gas cap and place the filler lid in its designated port on the inside of fuel door.

Fourth and finally, when putting the fuel filler cap on with the new style, you will only be able to turn the fuel cap 1/4 turn clockwise untill it is secure in the closed position.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
