    Cool Newbie S4 owner from Leeds

    Hi all, i'm Steve and i'm from Leeds,West Yorkshire,i've just joined the forum after buying my first Audi, a '99 S4 which i'm thoroughly enjoying getting to know. I've come from a Toyota background having owned MR2's for the last ten years ,a mk2 turbo and for the last three years a mk3 roadster into which i installed a Lotus Exige engine. I have always admired the S4 and when i was offered a great price for the roadster i decided to make the move. Looking forward to learning all about the car and getting to know you guys.
    Here are a few pictures of the new motor i took today.

    My first plan for the car apart from the service i've carried out is improving the brakes, so this Friday i will be collecting a pair of Audi Q7 6pot calipers i've bought and awaiting delivery of a pair of Merc ML55 front discs and Delphi pads, i can then start collecting the smaller items together like bolts and spacers for the calipers and custom brake hoses. I will post pics as and when i get the parts.

    Finally got time to do the brake upgrade i've been planning, thanks for the advice regarding irwins i got on here, removed the rounded bolts a treat. Anyway here are some pictures of the conversion.










    So far braking is vastly improved but i haven't used the brakes hard yet, instead i am allowing them to bed in for a few hundred miles first but i expect them to be fantastic.

    Thanks, they came from a Cayenne turbo S, there are two types, the 17z which are smaller and these which are the 18z ones. I originally was using Q7 calipers but the seller let me down, but Cayenne, Q7 and Toureg calipers are all the same.

    I understand, bit like me going to AITP last year with standard suspension :/ looked like a 4x4 next to all the other guys n gals motors lol (now have coilovers thankfully!)

    AITP is on the 11th of August this year and only £8 advanced ticket price, if your ready then it's a good day out and the ticket covers all the occupants in the car

    To be honest mate the car looks good for a meet

    Thanks, speaking of suspension i've noticed a slight knocking from the nsr corner, traced it to a bust FK coilover so i've been looking at the Bilstein b12 pro kit as a replacement.
