    Sounds good. Why did you sell the old one?

    2005 Nogaro S4 4.2 Newbi Owner (England)

    Hi. The C63 is on my shortlist for when the wife can stand me getting a V8 again. How is it so far? Apart from the obvious, one of the main attractions is its apparent lack of issues.

    For Sale Audi S4 4.2 V8 Quattro 2004 (B6) manual in Goodwood Green

    Thanks. I did but I borrowed the cable from another member. I had the pre-cats gutted when the engine was out. It's so smooth and eager now (the tune gives it a 1:1 throttle) and the gutting makes it growl.

    Something worse I would imagine. It's not out of choice. You still have the M5?

    For Sale Audi S4 4.2 V8 Quattro 2004 (B6) manual in Goodwood Green

    £7995 140,000 miles I've owned this car for nearly 10 years, in which time I’ve spared no expense in maintaining and improving it to run approximately 400 BHP. It had done 97k mostly motorway miles when I bought it, so I’ve done less than 5k miles per year since then. It’s been looked after by...

    s4 caliper help

    Yeah, they're just black or dark grey. I think the clips were a genuine option but they look ****.

    RNS-E Mk. 2 and AMI

    I got it working with a standard SATA HDD so it's obviously something about the SSD. Anyway, my experiment has had poor results because both devices I've successfully connected still have gaps between tracks (gapless playback was the main reason for purchase). PetrolDave said he had gapless...

    RNS-E Mk. 2 and AMI

    Okay, I tried exFAT but that didn't work so I dug out my wife's old MP3 player and that did work. So what's wrong with the hardware I'm trying to use? It's a SATA solid state drive in a small caddy and I formatted the drive and put some music on there. Should that work or is it expecting some...

    RNS-E Mk. 2 and AMI

    I can't remember the format; whichever is the default when using Windows. I'll try another device. Should pretty much anything work or does it only like certain types of devices?

    RNS-E Mk. 2 and AMI

    I've got a 2010 RNS-E (mk. 2) and I've just bought the AMI module, a Kufatec harness and a mini-USB cable (part #4F0051510H). I've connected it to a caddy with an SSD. After connecting it all up, coding it with VCDS and rebooting, I see the AMI option in the Source menu but it says "not...

    B6 S4 - Buzzing/Resonance between 2-3k, with odd symptoms :-(

    That doesn't sound normal. Can you get it in a video?

    Hi. I bought some LED sidelights from you a while back but they've started erroring. I need some more for my 2004 S4 (B6) - they're BAX9S (H6W). Ross

    S4 cam chain replacement, is it inevitable or not and should I worry?

    As I said in that other post: Guide damage means the timing will eventually fail. Some owners have no rattle but most seem to have a little at least.

    S4 cam chain replacement, is it inevitable or not and should I worry?

    It is inevitable with a BBK engine but you should get symptoms beforehand. If you want to do the repair eventually it's probably worth tucking away funds for the event. See here for more: http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/possible-s4-purchase-questions-questions.365966/#post-3212960

    Possible S4 Purchase.... Questions Questions....

    The timing chain rattle won't tell you anything unless it's severe. If it's done 100k miles it WILL need a timing service ASAP if it hasn't already been done. This will set you back around £4000 (or half that if you do the work yourself). JHM in California see a lot of these engines and every...

    S4 Engine noise

    Oh, the ticking that gets slightly louder as the phone moves closer? That's normal. You don't wanna be paying anywhere near market values if the timing service hasn't been done though. I've never heard of it failing suddenly - most get camshaft-related codes, etc. first - but at that mileage...
