    Default 2010 vs 2013 RS5

    What differences do the 2010 models have from the the 2013 models ?

    Also can a 2013 model flat bottom steering wheel be fitted to a 2010 model ?

    There is a long list of differences between the MY13 (Product Improvement) and the MY10 RS5.

    Major differences were:

    * Updated headlights/bumper/grille
    * Updated tail lights
    * Flat bottomed steering wheel
    * Updated nav/infotainment (MMI 3G+)
    * Updated climate control
    * A number of other switch gear changes inc Audi Drive Select button

    There is a number of other things but the above is the major items.

    In relation to the second question, yes, the updated flat bottomed steering wheel can be retrofit to the 2010 car.

    I heard that the 2013 had a bit more power?

    So there’s no engine or dsg difference

    That is incorrect.

    As for engine and gearbox differences, there is likely some revised components/parts used in the later cars but I’m not aware of any major changes.

    One item you’d forgot also are the clover style rotors, but were the callipers upgraded as well?

    There is lots of little minor differences, including the style of brake disks.

    My understanding is that the calipers are the same front and rear.
