Since the A5 "suffered" from a facelift, tuners also moulded their tuning programs, after the restyling. 
That being said, A5 gets a new ABT treatment, with new front lip spoiler, revised sideskirts, ventilated fenders, new diffuser and a trunk lip spoiler.
Customers can order coilover suspension, 19-20" alloys, performance brakes and a sport exhaust.

As for what's under the hood, for the 2.0TFSi engine, the power output can be bended up to 270HP, that's around 60hp increase. In the economy class, the 3.0TDi engine, can be tuned up to 300HP, that's a 55hp increase.
