  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Only concern is that the side window does not drop during cold weather which means the door doesn't shut properly after opening. When mentioned to the dealer I was told it was a design flaw that I had to live with. Hard to believe all A5 Cabriolets suffer with the same isse.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Totally impractical.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Parking sensors.
