    Bez, a pretty awesome machine there mate, how much modification did you have to do to make the RS4 grill fit? I think I may wait until I, need a new cam-belt to get it fitted however, I am interested in doing this. Ill find the part number easy enough but how much was it?
    Also, has anyone had much to do either metal braided brake lines and high pressure fuel pumps?
    Thanks, Andy.

    HPFP are worth the money with that and a good map you will see 300hp easy
    only time iv changed the brake lines is when iv gone bigger brakes never had a problem with oem
    the bumper is a prety easy mod if you have a good bodywork man
    i could get yours done for around £200 painted

    Car is parked outside but my camera is at work, I will need to pop into work tomorrow so will take the pics and have them up.

    I spoke to one guy from parts before I went to bodyshop who said yea he can get it, spoke another guy a couple of days later who said they can't. was a bit stumped how Audi can't get Audi parts, kinda defies the point of them being there!

    One more question, how easily can the intercoolers get damaged? (Apologies if it is a silly question...) I will put up pic also but the wee bump caused slight damage to the intercooler behind one of the grills, I don't know if it is anything serious or purely cosmetic.. A few pics will be uploaded tomorrow evening!

    sorry, bit more than 5 mins :s
    It was dark when I got to work this evening, so apologies if the quality isnt the best but I improvised with what I had to hand...

    ImageShack Album - 15 images

    I THINK they have all been put into an album. if probs, please let me know.

    And to top it all off with the bumper damage, my glove box broke and wasnt opening, this happened 4 days after the bumper incident... Was replace 2 months ago by audi specialists, called them on Fri before xmas who said they not gonna be back til tomorrow, so had to do the oast 10 days with NO money cos my cards and wallet were in there! Fun fun fun... And Glasgow Audi said they not gonna touch it cos was replaced elsewhere!

    No worries, I have spoken to a couple of bodyshops who say they will happily try but will never guarantee the cracks wont show in the future.
    The glovebox; it feels like the spring component is broken and it isnt catching when you try opening it. I will have a look tomorrow at he glovebox after removing the side panel and keep you updated what I decide. Will ask the audi specialists when I get a new lid, they aint got a bodyshop but are pretty straight up about what is needed. Cheers for the advice!

    I paid £100 plus postage off EBay I'm sure you'll get them cheaper but I didn't want to wait around plus I wanted them new, they are a pain to fit but well worth it :) . I'm thinking of getting the armrest done.

    Hi all, I have a Sprint Blue DTM and am near Edinburgh. I bought it last year from Aberdeen Audi. I had a S-line special edition before and loved the DTM. Mods so far include, RNS-e, B8 Steering wheel with Controls, Bluetooth telephone, B5 front suspension Cups, RS4 Rear anti roll bar, Full milltek, Decat, and a MRC remap. The DTM was the perfect choice for me, S4 looks and great tuning potential but with reasonable commuting MPG and running costs. The next stage is a K04 which i think would just complete the package. Second hand these cars are a bargain. they go for about the same money as the s-line SE but in my opinion have lots more to offer.

    Im glad to be in the gang!

    That's nice... the colour DIS too, I'm considering that for mine.. Do you happen to remember the part number that has the correct 160mph clocks and 8k red line max?

    My DTM is in Aberdeen most of the time and is the same colour as spider74's, I actually saw that one for sale in Aberdeen Audi when mine was in for warranty work.
    It's standard apart from Eibach springs as I thought the front looked like it was on stilts. Also had Custom-Code Stage 1 remap and K&N panel filter so I'd think it runs about 250PS on V-Power. Not been dyno'd yet. Has multi-function steering wheel but no sat-nav.
    There are at least 2 other Sprint Blue DTM's up here somewhere, 1 recently changed hands privately. Also I've seen 2 black and 1 silver model.
    Needs a detail now having had some paintwork refurbishment, thanks Aberdeen Audi mech's for damaging the bonnet....!!!!! I do my best to keep it in good condition including the alcantara on gear knob and steering wheel.
    I'd like to know what the B5 front suspension cups are for?

    Also needing new rear brake pads so suggestions for performance but reduced dust would be welcome.

    Welcome Hedski! i reckon it might have been you who saved me a few £££ in Aberdeen audi then? The Salesman was in the middle of telling me how "rare" the DTM's were and especially in Sprint Blue when another one drove in! his chin hit the floor! :)

    I did the B5 cups on mine, it drops the front to match the back (same as it sounds you have achieved with the Eibach kit).

    Sat nav is an easy install if you need help with vag com i have a cable and am willing to help :)
