    What Would You Do?

    I think you'll be heading to Audi, or to a better specialist, then giving the first lot the invoice if you can prove incompetence. It probably won't run rough if cam timing advance or ****** is only one tooth out but it will have an impact on performance and economy. Get it checked elsewhere.

    B8 RS4 owner

    Sorry you've had such a bad time, and a dealer's customer skills will make or break the ownership every time. I love my RS, and while I compromised on some spec, I've never looked back buying an over-serviced one-owner model from Newcastle Audi (not local at all). Have thought the B9 S4 might...

    B8 Deano's B8 RS4

    Can't think of any other estate I'd rather own right now. It's far from perfect, but every journey is an event.

    19" alloys

    I've got a set of genuine Speedline ST5 complete with Goodyear Eagle F1s with 6mm of tread on them. Took them off my S4 (put the standard 18s back on when sold). No cracks, kerbing or signs of rash, but some of the laquer is starting to peel on a few spoke. Centre caps included. PM me for more...

    B8 Deano's B8 RS4

    I'm using mine as a daily driver, and it gets a few long runs, so 300 miles on a tankful is acceptable, and only slightly less than my S4 used to return. I've seen 28mpg when there's no need to rush, but 22 running about. It's so quick, you don't need to be heavy footed - completely different to...

    What next for my s4

    You'll get drone if you remove the resonators. Have pm'd you

    What next for my s4

    Yes Ian - it's a matter of eyeballing where to cut from offering up the rear boxes. The bcs pipes are swaged and slide over the std exhaust piping. Then a couple of exhaust clamps and paste - job done. At first, they sounded tinny, but as they sooted up a bit, the sound deepened and improved to...

    What next for my s4

    Had these on mine - brilliant. You keep the resonators, so there's no drone. Traded the car before xmas and went back to standard. Got them for sale if you're interested?

    S4 Avant owner soon to be RS4 Avant.....checking in

    Well, here's a little teaser of the new arrival - got it a week before Xmas, so still finding my way (to and from the fuel station....). Will put up a first impressions piece in the RS section, but suffice to say I'm really chuffed with it and I can't believe how different it is to the 'S' ;)...

    Hi Gooders, not sure if you can help but I've found your details through the forum - just picked up a B8 RS4 and I'm looking to get some coding sorted to get the footwell lights on when driving (not just when the doors open). Is this something you are able to do via VCDS? Thanks, Geoff (in Toon...

    OBD Port Security

    This all sounds good but by the time your piece is published, we could all be staring at empty driveways...... Perhaps you could PM me with the salient points, given the useful info you're currently sitting on?

    S4 Avant owner soon to be RS4 Avant.....checking in

    Thanks. Yes I did consider it, but tbh I've never owned a V8 so here we go...... Didn't fancy a C63 with rwd, and I've really, really bonded with the S4 so the RS is the 'sensible' progression. Gotta scratch that itch

    Collecting on the 17th, so just in time for Xmas. I must have been good this year... :yes:
