    I'm back!

    Well after a year on the darkside (Audi TT), I've decided to return to the B5 fold.

    Bought myself a nice 99 PFL S4 yesterday with quite a few tasty additions.

    I'll post some pics up when I've had chance to give it a proper clean.

    The TT was a good car just not practical and with "pretend 4wd" (Haldex). I spent a fair few quid sorting her our and making her quicker but to get much more than 270bhp out of them is serious money. I also severely regretted selling my TQS. I see it every week and it used to gut me every time I did, so I bit the bullet and did what I should have done in the first place and got an S4.

    Already got a shopping list in mind of stuff I'll be doing, so watch this space!

    I did consider a tt, but I'm glad u went with a b5 tqs. Next step would be an s4 for me, but not sure that'll ever happen

    Can't wait to see pics of your s4, sounds ace!

    Reading the spec on the SRS thread it sounds like a bit of a beast

    I bought it last thursday, so not long!

    I'll post some pics up next week. I'm swapping over my wheels onto it atm, as the ones I bought it with are quite tatty.

    I'm also respraying the front grille as it's a bit stone chipped and removing all the S4 badging. Might even put a tdi badge on for a laugh!

    It's VERY different to the TT. What amazes me is the torque over the 1.8T. It has so much grunt low down. Makes it very easy to drive around.

    Don't you go making me want to sell my 1.8T!!! They're not even much less efficient on fuel I bet?

    I think I need to learn more about cars before I purchase an s4 though...they require mucho maintenance.

    Well on the way back from buying it, 200 mile motorway cruise at a very careful 60-65 I averaged 26mpg. Around town, previous owner reckons about 14-15. My 1.8T used to do 23 round town and mid 30s on a run, so it is quite a difference but then again it is double the power! I think I was put off by the mpg and maintenance initially, that's why I bought the 1.8T. But this time I thought, sod it, it's what I really wanted in the first place. I loved my 1.8TQS though. One of the few cars I regret selling.
