    Shell V Power vs Tesco Momentum 99

    During the pandemic I ended up using V-Power as it was closer to get to than Momentum. The car once again feels a bit more sluggish but with it being 5 years old now I thought some of the cleaning properties may be a good idea. Plan to go back to Momentum for the next tank. I have to add that I...

    Milltek Non-Resonated Cat-back exhaust for RS7

    Hello All, I've been away from the forum for a few years, but I'm back and ready to make some more noise! I'm looking into options to replace my stock sports exhaust on the RS7 (2016) and I seem to have settled on Milltek as a more affordable option which should deliver what I'm after which is...

    RS7 Stock Sports Exhaust for Sale

    I’m going down this route myself and am looking at Milltek. If you don’t mind, can I ask did you lose your pops/crackles? How much louder was the car afterwards? Does the Milltek work with the stock exhaust motors for control via drive select? (Mine have been unplugged open for years anyway)...

    Shell V Power vs Tesco Momentum 99

    Very glad to see that this thread continued in my absence! Also glad to see I’m not the only one still using Momentum 99! Never ever looked back!

    At Bose system - Where's the bass?

    It's worth noting that there is a massive price difference between the B&O you find in the TT/A5 and the A6/7/8. I know that the system in the A7 had more than 300 hours spent IN THE CAR tuning the system by B&O engineers. It's a high end system and I assume the stats are similar for the A6 and...

    Indeed it is. Almost as if economy was a secondary concern...

    Statler's A7 S-line

    Yeah the S5 is firmer and lower than the A5 - which is another reason I'm surprised to hear you feel the A7 is firmer! But perhaps it's the wider track as you say. I've not heard the RS7 wheels lose grip. It's grip levels are insane and so if I did hear that I think I would **** myself...

    Shell V Power vs Tesco Momentum 99

    Nice to see I'm not imagining it [emoji23] perhaps worth noting that my S5 wasn't remapped and so maybe that's why I couldn't tell much difference but also that my RS7 was remapped on V-Power yet still feels better on Momentum 99!

    Shell V Power vs Tesco Momentum 99

    Most of the time they do come from the same refinery, though Shell (and presumably a couple of others) doesn't. In previous cars I've had no problem using supermarket fuel if I had to - only with S5 I have noticed a difference. In that car I mostly used Esso's Super Unleaded (closest petrol...

    Statler's A7 S-line

    Firmer? That's not something I thought I would hear... When I test drove the A7 diesel it was so much more comfortable than the S5. The RS7 is almost as comfortable as the A7 and much better than the S5 in my opinion so quite surprising to hear you say that!

    Statler's A7 S-line

    That's pretty decent! The most I see is 30mpg on the motorway... Which actually isn't bad considering!

    Running different diameter front and rear wheels

    Hi guys, I'm considering going down the path of a staggered set up on my RS7. I have 21" stock wheels all around at the moment and I'm thinking of something like Niche Essen wheels, but running 21" front and 22" rear. I think it would compliment the profile of the car. Could anyone tell me any...

    Shell V Power vs Tesco Momentum 99

    I agree that 20bhp may be a bit optimistic, but it does drive noticeably different which I was surprised about. According to the remap guy, it's more noticeable in large displacement turbocharged performance cars. Have you tried both fuels? Do you think it could be due to the detergents in the...

    At Bose system - Where's the bass?

    I hated the Bose system for this very reason. Whatever they put in the A7 is rubbish compared to the other Bose systems in the Audi lineup. Hated it so much that I sprung for the B&O.

    Statler's A7 S-line

    @Statler Steve! Congratulations!!! It's such an amazing car isn't it. Hope you're enjoying it. Both of us have made the jump to the 7s from the 5s now. Wonder who's next...
