    Dane's new RS4

    Hi chaps thought I'd introduce myself in the relevant section,

    I'm Dane Im a regular over in the 8L section, I used to have an s3 and after a few hybrid turbos failing I decided to sell up and get this bad boy



    However the previous owner decided that, after looking after the car really well, he'd give it to the £5 a wash people... And they ruined the paintwork, so I now have to get a heavy paint correction done

    So today we gave it a good clean and hand polish



    It came out pretty well, but it's still needs a lot of work.















    And the noise;



    Plus it's the quickest thing I've ever been in or driven, I haven't been brave enough to turn the ESP off yet... So unbelievably quick!

    It's 466 brake
    With 3 inch downpipes
    Milltek
    Uprated arbs
    Black optics from factory

    I haven't managed to clear the s3's space on the drive yet though

    Love the B5 RS4, saw one in a tesco's other day, still loved the look of it, its timeless imho, dolphin grey is the nicest, but tbh they all look nice.

    Nige is right, and when you go out in a 600bhp one, it certainly makes you want one!

    car looks really well. Let the modding begin lol

    Has it has any suspension work like arb's etc? Things like that transform the car no end.

    The b5 only came in a small number of colours such as, Avus silver, black, misano red, imola yellow, nogaro blue, and there are a few audi collection colours knocking about, dolphin is an s3 colour

    After meeting up with Prawny and his newly K04 hybrid a3 track car











    I decided the old girl needed a good clean!


    So after 5-6 Hours this is how she turned out


    How both of the exhaust tips looked before





    How they looked half way through





    And finally, you can actually see the Milltek signs now!





    The light wasnt to good as it was about to rain but as you can see its alot better.


























    And my favourite reflection shot





    Pretty happy with the outcome really, not bad for an 11 year old car

    Thanks dude!
    Yeah the pedals a bit soft but thats a master cylinder thing, trying to push all those extra pistons.

    they are very good though, a lot more confidence inspiring.

    Yeah all the b7 brakes fitted to the b5 have that same pedal feel, its not great but they do work when pushed.

    I changed my fluid to ate racing blue and it has helped it a little but its still soft, next stage is the new loba discs with a bigger master cylinder etc hopefully that will slow me down more, if not then on to cermaics!

    Ive got new Motul RBF 660 in it now which seems pretty good, the pads that came with it had loads of meat on so I didnt change them at this point but Ill change them to ferodo DS2500 in due time. That combo worked well on the s3.

    I'm ok with a bit of a softer bite for now as they're a big improvement once you've started braking.

    Going to try and do an airfield day soon to try them out properly.

    seriously? i'd never even dream about going round there on standard brakes lol mad man lol

    The b7's will allow you to push the car that bit more and see what it can really do!

    Yeah i didnt have a lot of pedal left even after 15 mins. lol I didnt really overtake anyone as a result.

    It accelerates and gains speed so quickly that the brakes are so important for fast driving, your doing above a tonne in no time.

    That doesnt surprise me, what does is they lasted 15 minutes lol

    I know what you mean, my car does 100-200kph in around 6 seconds and sails to 180+ without breaking sweat so it can be scary when the brakes are not up to the job, if im honest my b7's dont really deal with the power my car chucks at them but they will do for now.

    You going to ADI this year? I've been the past 2 years and its a great event, hopefully i will be brave enough to track mine lol thats if i've not blown it up before lol

    Yeah I saw you mention something about 625 bhp on SRS thats a whole different world to mine and I can imagine its the limit of the b7's. have you done anything like rods etc for that power level? I need to change my miltek dp's to 3 inch jobbies but thats as much power as I need... for now.

    Ill be at ADI for sure, its only down the road I have been for two years too in the s3 and last year in the RS4 Mr Jon Murgie got a good photo of mine on the ASN stand. Big old drive for you though.

    Kept standard rods due to costs involved, but the heads are large port 2.4's with standard rs4 valves, cams etc they were only changed due to haveing a small crack on each head or i'd not have bothered changing. Its a shame its got 625bhp as its been mapped really safe, its got everything to hit the 700 mark but the rods are the limiting factor so they are near the top of the to do list when the funds allow.

    Going for the 3" dp's is a worth while route to go down, they sound great and you should see 460bhp+ which is ideal and saves you going mad with the cheque book lol

    I've never bumped into you there, im sure if you go this year we will either see each other on track or notice the cars. Jon does take a decent picture but is really strict when it comes to reposting them lol Yeah it is a fair old drive but i enjoy the drive as much as the day, we have always bumped into some fast cars so we can have a play to pass the time lol i've not been beaten yet! lol

    So I sorted out my 'Essex boy' Rear lights today.


    The previous owner had tinted the rear lights, by hand, with a brush!!!


    When we started the lights looked like this:





    Passenger side





    Drivers side





    A close up of the brush strokes in the 'tint'





    These had been bugging my for sometime so after reading through some headlight refresh threads, we hit the lights with 1200 grit wet and dry then 2000 then different grades of wolfs polish on a DA, with these:





    We taped the passenger side and hit that first.








    Which finished up like this:








    And so to the other side





    The car was filthly so we gave it a quick clean


    SNOW FOAM!








    And the finished, clean, item











    And a quick comparison between old and new








    Im pretty chuffed with the results really look alot cleaner I think, much more me.

    Looks much better mate, a lot less 'My car is well Bad Mad innit' (as much as an Rs4 could be)

    And nice to see the trusty steed still sneaking in to the pictures..
