    At the moment just a health check and dyno run for piece of mind to make sure everything is running as intended and give it a clean bill of health.

    No faults found and is a very good strong one I am told -made 388ps (@ wheels) @247 km/h and 425Nm Torque ....cant grumble at those figures when you think of the 4wd losses before it gets to wheels

    Awesome car, dream car!

    One thing, it looks like the front bumper is resprayed or it has e new front bumper, because I thin I see a little color difference and the opening is bit to large looking to the hood. Maybe it is just the picture, but if I were you I would give it a check.

    RS4 it THE car. Enjoy the power and sound, and interior and everything :D

    Cheers, I just love driving it so much

    Eagle eyes... yes it had a new bumper, its going back to the dealers to have the adjustment made... .I am really Anal about stuff and seeing as got it used approved and paid through the nose for the privilege, I am being pedantic and getting my moneys worth and having them doing everything so its spot on...its had new discs and pads, new exhaust, new wipers before I was happy with it... still getting them to do a few bits.. as I said I will get my moneys worth and a perfect car out of it. I think some traders may think they can get out of prepping a car properly and maybe some can, but I expect it all done just so, and expect it on a car like this.

    Thats a sweet looking wagon! I hope you dont mind but a quick question for you, did you just ask for the brakes and exhaust to done or did Audis multi point check pick them up as needing to be changed? I am about do the same as you and pay through the nose for a sprint blue Avant (like a kid at Christmas I can tell you!) and I would love to have the brakes replaced before I pick it up just to avoid the hit in about a years time.

    Thanks. I think a lot is down to the individual dealers, their attention to detail, and how they interpret the letter of acceptance as within tolerance for used approved i.e. some will prepare the cars to min standard and if can tick the box without needing to do anything, and if they think they can get away with it they will... that is just my experience of many dealers... I had seen many prepared to apparent used approved standard for the check and they must have had a blind person check and tick the box as there is now way I would accept some of the things I saw at stealers, only for them to say that it passed the 100 point check and met min stds required so must be ok.

    i.e. I saw one that had the Spare Wheel as marked in situ and the condition checked as ok...were they blind or check a fictious wheel as the RS4 doesnt have a spare wheel, so why tick the box.. when they should have put N/A .. again they checked the box for tyre depths ok.. when i got out my tyre gauge they didnt meet tread depth...they ticked disc thickness oas ok... altrhough when asked them for a workshop report and get a vernier on them... funnily they said, we will get them replaced fior you.. so why was it checked and gone theough the workshop as ok... maybe I am too cynical and too anal about my expectations, but some of the time, it does seem like a paperwork exercise the 100 point check and have to wonder the integrity if the test, if they can check the box that says 'check spare wheel present and serviceable' when an RS4 doesnt have one....note this was not dealers i bought mine from (very happy with prep of mine, everything was done just so).. just experience from others.

    Then when you walk away, they then say they will get it done for you if a deal breaker... when its should have been done and prepared properly in the first place. I agree its fair if reflected in the price aor you can negotiate it into deal... I saw ione that needed new tyres and discs/pads/tax & MOT expiring and a service due in about 4k (wasnt approved used was at indy) but he was prepared to take take that into aaccount and negotiate something off the price... others can argue thats the price it is, if had all that work done then would be nearer 4k+ more on the forecourt... so i guess its all relative.

    My advice is negotiate hard, never take no for an answer, never, and be prepared to walk away and do it, dont just threaten. Plus always have a plan, if you dint have one, you get given one, go in on the offensive, print it out if you dint have gift of the gab / bit of a wheeler dealer...tell them exactly what you want and where you want to be and male them work for it... push it over on the table set out like a business plan, so this is what I want, and we can do a deal here and now.
    Bottom line is, insist they do it and how you want it, if they do xyz, tell them then you have a deal, always throw them the porcupine to play with.

    Its all about the close and that plan. You must have commitment....The smart way of setting commitment levels is to set TWO
    • The best possible commitment you could expect from that particular salesperson at that stage in the sales journey
    • The minimum you will accept from that salesperson
    So if you get a level of commitment from your salesperson anywhere between these two levels you can come out knowing you have had a successful meeting.

    ...do a google on Porcupine close, puppy dog close and other sales tactics. Makle sure you are in driving seat though, you work the porcupine close on them and you are laughing the car all the way home to your drive.

    Sorry bored you all now... LOL
