    Newbie getting a A4 Avant TDI

    Hi all,

    I should hopefully be getting a 2004 A4 Estate sport TDi 1.9 this week, my first german car! after having Skyline, supra, mx5 and 306 work horse (not all at the same time obviously!)- so this german stuff as all new to me actually tell a lie i had a mk2 golf gti for a run around for a couple of months while doing some work on the skyline - but other than fix some neglected bits on it i didnt get to do to much before selling it on for profit bonus!

    I have been trying to read up on here but the VAG speak and all the model codes, chassis codes, engine codes is hurting me head lol

    Iam hopnig you could answer a few questions for me as iam not sure iam getting right info from my own searches.

    Its a Cat write off that iam going to fix - while iam at it how hard is it to fit the S4 twin exhaust system and rear bumper?

    Remapp - who is the best to use in north west, expected output and cost of remapp.

    Are there and mods/fixes that people recommend

    Do the RS4 wheels fit straight on? (model pic below)

    Any other advice or info will be greatly welcomed, Thank you

    As far as i knowq, the RS4 wheels won't fit straight on, they're too wide. I believe you'd be needing some RS4 reps, which would be a much more 'normal' width yet look similar.

    As for the other stuff, I'm not sure so i'll let the guru's help you out there.

    Welcome to the forum

    If it's a 2004 Sport then the odds are it will look like this at the front:



    If so then the rear will probably be similar to this (accident damage aside!):



    So yes it would be simple to swap for an S4 rear (if you can find one at sensible money!) J7USS on here has done just that with his saloon. I'm assuming it's a FWD so you would need to get the right exhaust parts to have an exit on either side of the car like the 1.9TDi quattro's. Unless you especially want an S4 system any system off a quattro car or fwd 1.9T would do, and then you would just need a couple of exhaust brackets and the rear bumper with cutouts. To give you this:




    Sorry for all the pics, but they speak a thousand words! And credit where it's due.

    The RS4 style wheels will be fine as long as you buy the correct size replica's as original wheels have an offset designed for flared arches. 5 x 112 PCD with an offset of 35-45 depending on the look you want will do.

    As for a remap, the 130's will go to 170bhp quite simply, I'm the wrong end of the country to recommend anyone specific though, but I'm sure someone closer will be able to!

    There's lots of appropriate mods! Lets see the car first before we spend all your money

    EXcellent matey, thanks for all the info!!

    Yes mine is the same style as the ones pictured - the sport rear bumper is nice anyway but the picture of the twin pipe avant with the cut out bumper (s4 style) is superb - and thats what i want!

    Thanks for the info on the wheels rep's are cheaper aswell so bonus

    Iam going to wait till tomorrow to see if i secure the car before posting pictures - and 170bhp remap sounds very nice! that getting on for 300 ft/lb of torque too?

    Just been reading the retro mod madness thread too - cant wait to get stuck in

    HI, not to far away from me, in warrington myself (woolston)

    as for rear bumper removeal, its a bit of an arse tbh

    first of all, remove the mud flaps if fitted, then the torx screws in the wheel arch, some more screws under neath, thats the easy ones done

    now youll need to gain access to the bolts inside the car, to do this, remove the boot floor, remove the boot entry gaurd, 4 torx screws, remove the side panels, couple of screws, and to make it easier the rear seat catch.

    the plastic is held in with clips attahed to the back of the plastic panels, they are a pain to get out as there held in tight, prise the panel out with a trim tool, there is also a retaining clip on the plastic panel about mid way along, (inline with middle of window), once there out then on the drivers side, if fitted, remove the sub and amp, 4 bolts/nuts and unclip the wire, it will wiggle out, you now should see 6, maybe 5 nuts (10mm head)

    bumper should slide back

    bit clearer instructions: http://www.witter-towbars.co.uk/towb...px?vtid=203049 and click fitting instructions

    Yeah, the red 'I' TDI's are 130bhp. Although, someone could have just put a different engine cover on

    Does your v5 not say? I'm pretty sure mine does.

    Its writte off, so need to vic check it before i can have the V5. Also its had private plates on and they dont match up to the car now, so i know little about it - A gamble is always part of the fun! lol

    Didnt want to post pics up of it yet as it looks like crap - but iam now confused wheter its a sport or not?

    Easiest way to tell is the SE had a four spoke steering wheel, and the Sport a three spoke sports wheel.

    Sport is better than SE. Mine is an SE, so naturally I think SE is better, but then that's because i'm jealous!
