    Hi guys,

    I am heading up to huntingdon audi on saturday to test drive my dream car, shame its 2 hours away!!

    I am getting quotes of 1k for insurance which is not bad for a 24 year old so i might as well see if i can get one on the driveway.

    After selling up my Astra Vxr i bought my first audi, an A4 Avant quattro 190 1.8T and it has been brilliant just a tad sluggish for me so i am hoping the Rs4 will satisfy my need for power.

    I have decided on the B7 as it will be used for my business as well as pleasure.

    Going to be checking the buying guides for tips and was wondering if anyone had any advice for me on what to look out for, bargaining points e.t.c?

    Here's a linky to the car Dealer Vehicle Enquiry - Audi Audi RS4 4.2 quattro Avant

    Any help greatly appreciated :)

    Buckets were on my list of wants along with fbsw but you cant have it all and its an Rs4 screw the shape of the steering wheel or shape of seats :)

    It has everything else I want so might as well give it a test drive at least!

    Nice! good to know i could always change later on.

    Do like the sound of heated seats though, tps, sat nav, parking sensors e.t.c

    Do you know if super sport suspension is an extra? i know you can select a £1k+ suspension on the new rs4 so wondering if its the same with the b7's or just standard?

    What was the situation with the RS4 steering wheels? MY friend had an RS4 and his steering wheel was like this 28368_10150197116155532_753203_n.jpg

    Sorry for the bad quality, that is how phone cameras were back then!

    The flat-bottom wheel (like in your pic above) isn't multi function. It has 4 buttons; 1 for Sport mode and 3 for navigating the DIS menus. The other option was a the multi-funtion wheel which wasn't flat-bottomed, but had the radio controls etc.

    All I'd say is go and see about a carbon clean, it pays for itself!
