    What did you & your B9 do today?

    '17 B9 S4 Avant, as below, but still have 255's as good tread left. The tyre dealer whom I use fits m-a-n-y Audi rims/tyres, advised no problems with 265's. Audi Aust confirmed A5's have slightly bigger wheel arches, so are fitted with 255's OEM. Know at least 2 AudiZine [US] members who fitted...

    What did you & your B9 do today?

    Just had annual wheel/tyre rotate/balance/alignment @ 45kms [3 1/2yrs]. PS4S tyres at approx. same distance as old P Zeros, but with still good tread, excellent grip & turn-in, without excessive wear in insides. Very happy with them & probably will replace with similar, albeit 265 x 19...

    New tyre time for the b9

    Had A Subie Liberty/Legacy turbo wagon & stayed with OEM Bridgestone RE050a's. More$$'s, but consensus of owners was definitely worth it, & was. Out here Falken is popular & a good tyre, but more with Asian vehicles. Still have PS4S's & love 'em. 265 x PS4S (9" rims) next. Heard of Yokohama...

    Chassis Differences between S4 & RS4?

    RS4/5's run 275 tyres, no doubt with appropriate spring rates etc. Very happy with our mods (suspect for far fewer $$s) and drive in individual with settings in dynamic, except suspension in comfort, to suit SWMBO. Trivia:- Had tyres swapped front to back etc. + alignment & tyres filled with...

    New MY2020 Facelift...

    His take-up date is April 1, believe it or not. ROFL!!!!!! "...Wolfsburg-based VW is on the lookout for clean-engine expertise as it struggles to overcome an emissions scandal that originated in Audi's engine development department..." So does one interpret that VW Group has yet to fully...

    Have you heard the S4/S5 rumour...

    Also agreed, but nothing really explains 'fake' exhaust. Take it that weight does not include the 48V & 12V batteries. The drawing, as does others, includes the Ad-Blue tank, but not the fuel tank. Curious as to why the exhaust on the S4, and presumably the S5, has real tips (which to me look...

    New MY2020 Facelift...

    Reminds me of some of the early design disasters by the Japanese - fugly!!! One would really have to hope the black edition does de-chrome all that extra cr@p. Probably cost more due to oodles more black paint. Absolutely no intention to buy one, but would nickname it "Boris" ;-) Trivia...
