First-Gen Audi A5 Coupe Gets Some Add-Ons, New Rims By JMS Fahrzeugteile

Production of the first generation Audi A5 ended in 2016, after nine years, but this hasn’t stopped JMS Fahrzeugteile from launching several aftermarket components for it.

The German tuner’s front spoiler lip, which apart from the Coupe also suits the Convertible and Sportback, is a €259 (equal to $307) option, whereas the side skirts and rear diffuser cost €269 and €259 ($319 / $307) respectively and can be fitted to the two-door models only, regardless if they have the S-Line pack or not.

Filling the wheel arches are the 10.5×20-inch Barracuda Karizzma light alloys, with a Y-spoke pattern and a dark finish, which are shod in 275/25 tires. Even with the new wheels installed, there was room to drop the body by around 40 mm (1.6 in), with the H&R and JMS springs, in combination with the stock shock absorbers.

The 3.2-liter V6, which was used in the A5 Coupe between 2007 and 2011 and in the Cabriolet and Sportback from 2009 to 2011, rests under the hood of this example, and is in stock form. As a result, it still produces 265 PS (261 HP / 195 kW) at 6,500 rpm and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque from 3,000 to 5,000 rpm.

Nonetheless, the tuner has enhanced the soundtrack of the six-cylinder engine by installing an Eisenmann silencer which, according to JMS Fahrzeugteile, provides a muffled sound and has a performance optimizing effect.
