    Welcome! You're right - we're a pretty friendly bunch on here! Bet you're not gonna get too much sleep tonight!! (not filled with envy in any way whatsoever!) I haven't got any personal experience of the S4 but having been in my brother-in-law's S3 (who has since changed to an A4 1.9 TDI) quite a few times i'm sure you'll be well satisfied with your new steed. Enjoy

    The S3's engine doesn't compare to the engineering of the 4.2 V8. You will be hooked on the sound.

    S4...mmmm one day I hope.
    Yeah the grunt is a lovely sound especially with a nice filter on it. A pipercross Foam filter would sound Great.
    All V6's sound great with a filter IMO.

    Even without, they sound right

    Only just got back from being out in it all day !

    Awesome, I'm loving it.

    Milltek was booked and paid for yesterday and will be going on Wed Cant wait.

    Pics will follow, but must go out tonight so will sort some tomorrow.

    I think I may enjoy this car immensely, just for the engine note alone !

    Thank you, I'm very pleased to be here

    I'm loving it, despite having a small problem with my air con evaporator pipe being blocked, thats not stopping my fun!

    The difference between my revo'd S3 and the S4 is fairly marked, I thought they would be similar, but I could have not been more wrong.
    The power delivery is so smooth, and the sound is awesome (Millteks are going on wed and I cant wait). It also needs less gear changing. Approach a roundabout in 3rd or 4th and the torque just keeps you trucking. No need to keep changing down to 2nd etc. I 'm still getting used to adapting my driving technique.
    Spec was reasonable, I always knew I'd struggle to find exactly what I wanted, but it does have Bose, Symphony 6 disc, full black leather, centre armrest, heated seats and the light pack.
    Its a sept 53 plate, 1 owner, 40k miles and all the books are complete, AVS servicing etc. (next one due in 14k miles or 540 odd days).

    The only one thing extra I would have liked is reversing sensors, but may get them fitted later.
    Next job is the RNSe with bluetooth when I get back from Rome at the end of the month.

    Very nice fella. Always nice in Black.
    Just been looking at a B7 saloon in Black with RS4 wheels. Lovely...

    Whay I like most about the torque (you mention fewer gear changes), is pulling strong from basically tick-over in 6th, and nailing it onto a motorway up to alot of mph. 25mph to alot in one gear !
