    Is B8 RS4 MPG as bad as I think

    Same as most people, I get 28.6 on a run to London, 51 mile of motorway on cruise at under 80. Returns around 270 to a tank on average, but if you do a lot of town driving it will drop to low 20's. My biggest advice is watch for carbon build up. My Mrs daily's our car so I have to keep an eye on...

    It was wheels and tyres which was good, so a full set! Perfect for winter I guess. Just a quick question, have you noticed the car changing down gears quite violently before? Happens in both comfort and individual (your settings). I can't remember if it used to do it, especially as it was so...

    Cheers mate, refurb coming were contracted by the centre, so in short, I have no contract with them, even though they damaged my car. Frankly, I held them liable since picking up the car but the centre states that the wheels were up to standard of a used approved vehicle.

    I'm scratching my head as well, bearing in mind a good friend spoke to the master technician who only works on RS cars, who confirmed everything was done. The only logical answer, is because they are so busy and so much had to be done to my car the advisers and the techs have not spoken at...

    Mate, cracking result, couldn't read the upside down invoice, but looks like a lot of work! Mine came out today after 10 1/2 weeks! Yes that long! In short I ended up having two (2) wheel alignments, O/S/F shock replaced as DRC pressure was 5, exhaust clamp, new MMI housing trim, new wiper...

    Just thought I would give an update for members that are interested. My RS4 is still with Audi! Just over two (2) weeks now and although it was meant to be detailed on Monday they decided to not tell me until last Saturday that it wasn't going to be ready! In short, most of the work DRC related...

    I agree mate, but the problem with the web it can always get fed back. At the moment, although there have been a number of issues in the 11 days I have actually had to the car for since late December, I've got to be mindful that the dealer understands I'm still within my 30 day exchange policy...

    As it stands, dealer is top notch, I have a very good relationship with them and needless to say they are aware of what happened with the S3 so know I won't stand around with my wallet open. It has gone off for approval from extended warranty and hopefully if accepted it will get replaced before...

    Mate, just heard that so far my front O/S shock needs replacing, they will know if more need doing once that has been repaired. According to them my DRC pressure was low which could result in further failures. They are going to check and report back.

    No pictures, in short I can get two fingers in the left front wheel arch comfortably and on the right its a bit of a squeeze. We reckon in the 6 days I have had the car back after the first visit its dropped around quarter of an inch. Although no exact measurements taken. They are going to run...

    Well, my time yet again with my RS4 is cut short as it returned to the dealer for a further time. Noticed a clunk from the front O/S over bumps and then noticed the car has dropped to the right, so didn't want to take a risk with DRC. Plus while its there they are going to fit 4 brand new alloys...

    Haha, its surprising how easy it was to bury it mate. I did take it out very briefly as it was a bit squeamish in the snow.

    Anyone have any idea if wheel refurbishments causes the alignment to become out of tolerance?

    Looks like I got lucky with my kerb incident. It was free of charge thankfully, although I hope it is when I pick the car up. It was to correct the steering wheel not being straight. Would the toe being out cause that? Also if the wheels have been refurbished again since the alignment, would...

    Lads, sorry question regarding 4 wheel alignment. My RS4 had it done while it was with Audi and I just got send the results. Can anyone who understands it shed any light on whether it was done right. It does show green and red boxes which I presume indicated good and bad. Before: Front Left =...
