    I paid more than that (!) just over 2 years back although with 30k lower mileage.

    Got a link you wanna share?

    I would say that price sounds fair with that mileage. As for stuff to look out for, just the same as a normal a4 really.

    I'll sticky this, I'm conscious there's quite a lot of stickies in here at the moment, but I'll try and make an effort to tidy them up soon.

    bought a lot of bits for mine recently, just swapped out steering wheel for RS4 wheel.

    on the topic of cleaning the wheel before i never tried it, now it was off i thought i could try something....

    i recently used some carpet 'spray on cleaner' on some stained grey bmw carpet and i was amazed how well it worked. so after trying severel methods to clean the suade sections of the DTM wheel i thought i'd give the carpet cleaner a go with nothing to lose.

    unfortunately i didn't get any real before pics of the wheel....

    [​IMG]

    spurred on by this success i headed out to the car to tackle the handbrake handle

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    sprayed on the cleaner, let it settle for 10 seconds then wiped it off with a micro fibre cloth

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    very happy with the results, this is the cleaner - £6 delivered from ebay

    [​IMG]

    i'm going to buy some more and try it on a couple of bits on the passenger seat

    Thats a great result. I'm gonna have to get some of this. The way I cleaned my last time was with a suede brush and it took like an hour 😮

    Hi im sure this has been discussed before ? But ill ask away - I will be renewing my discs and pads at the end of the month (pay day) thinking of upgrading to the S4 Discs & Pads purely for the looks ie -bigger discs. do I require the S4 carriers ? Can I keep the DTM calipers ?

    Also getting alloys refurbished and resprayed - thinking of going for the Gun metal grey ?? Ive seen two colours the dark grey & lighter grey :thumbsup: what do you think ?

    Just had two rear tires fitted from kwik fit - Dunlop sportmax rt 235 40 18 = £266.90 alot bettergrip now, had some crappy ironman tyers glad there off just need to replace the fronts soon as possible look forward to reading any comments

    Regards

    have you been breaking into my head and stealing my ideas? :busted_cop: (only joking)
    i am doing that exact think you asked, (i speak English good me)

    at lease we are in 2 different countries so we can not be accused of copying each other. i was going to do the Black rotorform alloys but somebody else has already done that :whistle2:

    guys can you help me out with DTM alloys?
    what do your center caps look like? brought a set of alloys today and i've seen photos with silver outside the center caps and some without. here are the ones i have, they are genuine ones.

    This is the electronic activated diverter valve, this was the original. With a good few miles and a stage one these do pop/rip commonly. New version is a piston type, now drives soo much better, must have been leaking a little bit before the total failure. As you can see in the pic the orange seal split! just goes to show you can't always trust rubber! :sorry:

    You have to do this from underneath and it's 3 Allen key bolts, sounds easy but you need kid sized hands!

    Well seeing that i've commented on the thread it would be rude not to introduce myself :happy: Name Ashley, 22 from Cardiff, normally over on the 8P section. Had two 8P A3s. Unfortunately the A3 in my sig photo that i had for over 4 years and was my pride and joy got got written off, at the end of January by some one pulling out of a junction :(
    Lucky i started stripping the car of all the mods in October preparing to sell it in the new year. Did have my heart set on a B5 S4 but after months of searching and going to see so many dogs. I kind of gave up and decided to get a B7. Always had a soft spot for the B7s so started looking at s line special edition. But deep down i always wanted a DTM and knew i wouldn't of been happy with an s line special edition. Fast forward collected the DTM 2weeks ago and love it :wub: Will update with photos asap :happy:

    Also spotted another sprint blue dtm local to me on newport road in Cardiff. Sprint Blue on black BBS CK and RS4 grille. Lol you looked pretty shocked to see another dtm last week :laugh: Looks lovely :wub: Any one on here?

    Thanks Biddy :thumbsup:
