    Newbie With A Question On B8 RS4

    Well we can’t drive anywhere now & I doubt much will be selling. Take your time and do your research as you are doing. The B8 RS4 didn’t have the low mounted front fogs, so you will have to check the headlights with the newer DRLs. Panoramic sunroof is a nice option as well as privacy glass...

    Newbie With A Question On B8 RS4

    Hi Colin. The later console was introduced with a very minor facelift known as B8.5 from the start of 2012. I think they also integrated Bluetooth music streaming on the music interface. You can recognise the facelift on an A4 from the rectangular front fog lights instead of the round ones. Rear...

    B9 Update RS Cockpit to 2020 facelift version

    I agree it would be a nice upgrade if possible. You could ask Hazzydayz.com who do retrofitting of these TFT displays Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    B9 Update RS Cockpit to 2020 facelift version

    I saw the same question on another forum or thread and an expert(?) said NO it’s not possible, although I didn’t see a reason at the time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sports Exhaust

    Hi. When the engine is switched off your exhaust valves will be open. Therefore when you start the car, it starts with the open valves and as you have noticed they quickly close. The only way I know to control your valves without too much hassle is to fit an active exhaust valve controller...

    B9 Views on RS Sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC)

    Hi, my 2018 B9 has DRC & 20” wheels. I haven’t tried one without DRC or running on 19” wheels, but I am happy with the ride quality on comfort and auto settings. Dynamic is a little firm on UK **** road surfaces. I’m in Surrey and happy to do comparisons with someone who doesn’t have DRC who...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    Ok, very interesting, so your engine switches off while coasting? Mine goes to idle and no gear selection when coasting in certain conditions, it only switches off during stop start. These cars are becoming quite complex, I wonder how long the aux. battery will last and also the alternator...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    Unable to comment on the tool kit. You could ask Audi UK about the battery. The fact that it has one corner cut off, looks like it has been done to accept a wheel on top. I sent you the spare 19” wheel photo of bar code and an EBay link to the exact same wheel that I have. I’m getting the car...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    The silver battery housing cover is actually an auxiliary battery if you google the part number. I can’t find out what it powers, maybe electric convertible roof? My RS4 is loaded with electronics but I don’t have an aux. battery My tools are under a flap in front of the battery well on the RS4...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    Correct there is no service book anymore, the service history is available from an Audi dealer so long as they have done the service. You can ask for a service history certificate. There may also be a health check list and invoice from the previous owner? Any servicing carried out by other...

    I agree your battery is definitely wider than mine, is your car diesel? You might be lucky and the wheel fits around it? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    Job done I think? Good luck, I was quite surprised to find my RS4 had a space saver, but also very pleased it does. I used it on my previous car to get me home once, better than foam as my tyre blew a big hole that foam wasn’t going to patch. The alternative would have been AA and probably 5...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    You’re right, my sticker has the same space saver as yours. Only my main tyre/wheel size is different because it’s the RS4, so my theory of same circumference is right. I couldn’t wait until tomorrow as I would be thinking about this all night, so I’ve been into the garage and checked just now...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    Just watch this space tomorrow, I’ve never actually taken it out of the boot to even look at it, so it will be interesting and a chance to check the pressure too. I guess the battery and tool kit is down there somewhere too! I’ll get the tape measure out as well so we will have all the facts...

    AUDI A4 AVANT 2019 (B9) spare tyre question

    Hi Steve, My 2018 B9 RS4 has a factory fitted space saver spare in the boot, so it is possible. If you like, I’ll take some photos of the setup and try and get you some part numbers that’s printed on anything I find. I don’t think it matters what size wheels are on the car, the circumference...
