    Hi guys, B5 S4 newbie in the making :)

    Hi Guys, just thought id say hi and also say that im in search of a S4 in the not to distant future. I currently have a 57 plate ibiza cupra 20vt running revo stage 2 and will be looking at getting a place with my partner soon and because the cupra costs so much its time to save some money and downgrade, but upgrade the car at the same time
    Have narrowed it down to the S4 because A, its bigger than the ibiza, is faster than the cupra and the main reason is the tax will be lower than ill be paying on the cupra
    So, thought id say hi and if anyone can advise me on any of the pro's and cons of owning the S4 then it would be greatly appreciated.
    Oh and also, i have noticed that there isnt that many of them around on auto trader, piston heads or on this forum..... is that due to the age of the cars?

    oh and also, i work for sachs so if any of you need any help with parts then please ask and ill try to help as i work in the warranty dept. dealing with and testing the warranty claims when they come in to us

    Regards
    Daniel

    Welcome to the site Dan, you will have to get some pics of the car up, sounds good...

    There are not many S4s up for sale as nobody wants to sell them if they have one, very nice undercover car in my honest opinion.

    Good luck with your search.

    it's all good! yep that was me

    software is always a good choice but there are a few things you need to look out for though
    MAF
    EGT probes
    Lambda probes
    cam cover seals.....that's all i can think of off the top of head

    are the turbos prone to letting go aswell?
    what sort of mileage are the major things good for? or when do they usually start to give up the ghost?
