    I have been considering buying an RS4 for some time now and I am about to take the plunge. I have not fully decided whether to go for a standard spec car or an upgraded version. I have come across several versions of each, but the favourite is this:

    Sep 2000 Avus Silver RS4 (9,000 miles)
    Black Leather Interior
    Carbon Facia Trim
    Symphony Audio with Bose
    Centre Armrest

    Modifications:
    MTM Stage III Upgrade (458Bhp)
    Quattro GmbH Suspension Upgrade
    Movit 380 Front Brakes
    Quattro GmbH Rear Brake Upgrade
    18" Sportec Alloy Wheels (+ New Spare)
    UUC Short Shift Gear Change
    Forge Diverters
    Boost Gauge
    Alcantara Steering Wheel
    Sportec Side Grills
    Armourfend

    The current reg for this car is R55 BYE, I do not know the previous one yet. Does anybody (apart from Iain) know this car?

    If I am going to average about 20k miles per year, is it adviseable to go for an upgrade, or should I stick with a standard car, especially where extended Audi warranty is concerned?

    How well do you know the car, from postings on rs246.com, or from seeing the car?

    this is the spec of the car from the other forum,

    The spec

    Avus Silver RS4 2001 Y reg
    65k miles
    Clifford alarm with intellistart
    Folding electric wing mirrors, not available form Audi, linked to the intellistart
    RAC Tracker
    Bel 996 built in radar detector
    Multimedia install including Alpine flip out screen, DVD sat nav with TMC, 12 disc CD changer, Alpine DVD movie player, rear head rest screens, playstation 1, rear wireless headphones - cost over £7000 installed
    Movit rear brakes & Movit 6 pot front brakes 380mm discs - apparently only one with 6 pots in the UK, cost around £7000 installed
    Quattro GMBH suspension, recently had new struts 6k miles ago
    Tanoga short shift
    MTM Bi Motot 19" wheels with Yokohama AMG AVS tyres
    Full Milltek exhaust
    Recent AmD upgrade includes - less than 2k miles on the car
    -Turbo Dynamics hybrid turbos
    -AWE racing ceramic manifolds
    -Gas flowed cylinder heads
    -Tanoga lightened flywheel with uprated Sachs clutch (not paddle type)
    -New cam belt service inc plugs and all 6 coil packs

    All in all I have spent around £40k on upgrades

    Although slightly above average mileage most of it has been motorway driving. Been on the track 4 times but much had new brakes, suspension and engine overhaul done recently and hasnt been tracked as she now is.

    Sad to see her go as I believe it is the best all round car on the planet, you can take the family on holiday, go to the tip or go on the track and beat most other cars on the road

    Current output is 539.4bhp and 680Nm of torque

    Immaculate condition, waxed and polished using Meguiars care car products regularly

    Sad to see her go for £39,950

    I had a ride in that RS4 just after the owner got back from the turbo upgrade. He was still running it in but it was completely bonkers. I'd buy it if I had the money.

    Which car, because the one quoted by Carlosthejackal, is different from the car I am looking at, as in my original post.
