DON'T TAKE YOUR Q5 ON A SKIING HOLIDAY

General Discussion - myAUDIQ5 forum - www.myaudiq5.com
Snow chains cannot be fitted to the new Q5 with the wheels that are supplied (18"). Audi told me that if I need to use snow chains then I need to buy a new set of alloy wheels of a different size! (the track rod clearance is only 10mm)

I bought this Q5 thinking it was a truly versatile mountain worthy vehicle and capable of being driven to mountain locations safely in all conditions.

However, if you decide to take the car on a skiing trip to Scotland you will not be able to attach snow chains when the conditions dictate. The only option is to buy a new set of wheels, and unfortunately you cannot get steel wheels big enough so you will need to buy a new set of different sized alloys (& tyres) to overcome this problem. A very expensive solution.

It took a bewildering number of calls to Audi to tease out this information and is a disappointing result to what was a reassuring brand.
