    Hi all, (first post)

    I have just purchased my lovely new toy of a B5 S4 Avant (Pics to follow). Already I am over the moon with the car as it is fully loaded, heated seats the lot.

    Although I am now starting to think that i have made a stupid purchase.

    I love audis, before this I had a B7 2tdi and before that I have a 1.9tdi B5 so I am not new to the brand or the shape, although after doing alot of research I decided to take the plunge and fork out the S4. Now when I test drove the car it drove magnificent, perhaps it was adrenaline but i could not fault it. Now however I am starting to hear the turbo spool up a fair bit, and after a quick search on the internet I am convinced turbo lady has come and visited me.

    Can you guys take a look at the below and either tell me I am insane or I should start saving.

    This video was going up a slight incline starting in second gear.

    This was recorded on a private road.

    I had posted this on another US forum, but they don't seem to helpful, but I can see from reading a bit on here there are a fair from the UK. Any comments would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the quick reply Andy, when I test drove it seemed very tight and well looked after. I am looking forward to becoming an active member on the forum.

    Be worth getting a health check to ensure theres no boost leaks lurking.

    Boost leek eh. That's sound like something I could do myself, what do you suggest a set of new hoses? Any tips for a DIY boost leak checker?!
