    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    If I can work out how to post a video clip I’ll add one of mine. They don’t sound too bad for stock, a few pops and bangs. They do sound very quiet inside but that’s mainly due to the active noise cancellation. I’ve yet to try out the VCDS adaptions to turn it off. If I keep mine thinking of a...

    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    Yup it is a hard decision, Tbh it took a while to stop missing mine, but just starting up the S6 changes that now, it is a much more special motor. The one big change I wasn’t expecting was how smooth the V8 is, I thought the Bitdi was a smooth engine but the NVH is 10x better in the S6. Sent...

    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    The issues are rare but as said a half dent warranty will cover most things. Real world MPG, it will do 30 on a steady run down the motorway at 70-80 Shorter journeys will see 18. My rural drive back from work ~5miles is about 12 Mixed journeys around 22-25 Compared to my old Bitdi I was...

    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    The only “common” issues I found when researching mine were the s-Tronic failure and oil screens, I’ve still got 18months of extended warranty left so not too concerned. If I keep it beyond that I would do or get done the screens before a map, but that’s taking the very top of engine bits off to...

    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    I wouldn’t let the Slighly lower power of the s6 fool you, costs arn’t much different to the RS in reality , it just doesn’t attract the “RS” tax at dealers For me, fuel, tax and insurance would all be about the same, the advantage is it’s not an RS so doesn’t come with the same stigma and much...

    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    Possibly cost, the S6 is less torque so could get away with the (I think) in house s-Tronic vs buying in the ZF 8HP BOX Oh just for information, it’s a mis conception the RS has the same box as the Bitdi, yes they’re both ZF 8 HP boxes but ZF do 3 power levels of that box, the RS gets the...

    Possible S6 upgrade.......!!!!!

    Looks about right price wise, non black edition fetch less money and the high mileage. I was offered 31k trade in with mine on 28k miles. Just check the service schedule on it and probably should be time for it’s it’s second s-Tronic oil change too If you can afford you won’t regret Sent...

    Is it too late to change S-Tronic oil?

    I paid £225 for my GB oil change late last year (Audi fixed price charges)cheaper than the Indy’s and has the benefit of if the box goes boom I stand a better chance of a goodwill gesture out of warranty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bitdi to S6

    Agreed, And ambient temperature/fuel used/ how full the tank is/tyres/tyre pressures/how much **** in the boot. 0-100 is really willy waving for the pub and figures vary significantly unless you average 10-20 runs or so but then atmospherics change, heat soak etc have a big impact, especially on...

    Bitdi to S6

    Don’t forget that’s the older S6/S7 engine[emoji12] The later 450PS engine gives more (and almost 500 according to some with high octane) GPS boxed Mine at 3.8 to 62 with Tesco momentum, quite different to those figures Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
