    Bought this about a month ago from Huddersfield. Was a bit rough being a cat D but had a great spec and low miles so took a chance on it.

    Been pretty busy with it since I got it but most of the issues are now sorted so happy to enjoy it for a bit now.

    Late 06
    68k miles
    MOT/TAX into next year
    RNS-E full satnav with IPOD connector (basic one that dummies a changer)
    Full black heated leather
    RS4 alloys with potenzas on

    Waiting for the ferry back to N.Ireland!


    Got my roofbars and cycle carrier fitted (I use these a LOT and they are super handy!)


    interior pic:


    bumper off for paint. few too many stonechips!


    Had to fit the ABS pump repair kit due to the G201 error. Pretty straightforward and got it done on the driveway in a couple of hours.

    (not my car but you get the idea)

    some new front discs to replace the ebc grooved/drilled ones that came on the car. nowt wrong with them but prefer the look of these.


    painted the front calipers red. rears to follow at some point


    discs fitted:


    one horn was missing and one didnt work so universal horn and some crimp connectors later:


    new wheels fitted. A8 Quattro wheels (8Jx18 ET48). Took a risk on these to have something different but OEM looking. Really pleased with them.



    Still got lots to do but will get there :)

    Not a fan of the wheels, each to their own, I like red calipers, I just done mine a nice boring gloss black, but suit my car better..... Should stick your rs4 wheels back on imo, they wheels take something away from the look of your car.. even get the rs4 wheels refurbed in another colour would be an option....

    Brake discs look great, might invest in these myself when that time comes.... enjoy your car
