    Issues selling my S4

    But then immediately someone else said they were looking for an S4 before any options, so there are plenty of different types of buyers out there!

    Issues selling my S4

    I'm selling mine soon and I'm worried, there seems to be a lot hanging around at the moment. Also, as of last night there are ****** 5 red ones on Autotrader and mine's red. I've NEVER seen a red B8 S4 and now there's 5 for sale! I read an article a few months ago on autoexpress and it said...

    Thanks for your thoughts guys. New gearbox is in and is running fine. I asked what the process was for the faulty box and was told that it was a manufacturing fault and they don't open the box and investigate on site. I asked to be told what the problem was when they find out. To be honest...

    Should I be paranoid of an 'S-Tronic' Gearbox ??

    ^^ What he said, I knew about that change but forgot to mention it the other day!

    I see where you're coming from rum4mo, but where will it get me? They can't get it delivered/fitted any quicker so I'm not sure what any complaining would achieve. Though I am planning to have a discussion with the service manager when I collect it regarding the time I have lost in terms of...

    @Lavis89 - From what I hear 2-1 in the DL501 box was never perfect. This malarkey hasn't put me off S-Tronic to be honest, it's such a good box. @AudiLeon - Yeah, I'm quite philosophical about it all. At the end of the day, they paid fore most of my replacement and now it's gone again, it's...

    Yeah, quite. Gearbox number 3 going in on Wednesday! It made a whistling noise at 50mph, so took it back and they took the oils out - one of them had metal shards in it, so it's being replaced!

    Should I be paranoid of an 'S-Tronic' Gearbox ??

    You don't have to necessarily panic about it. When you see a car you like, go to Audi and ask them to pull up the service and warranty history of the car - it will show you any work the car has had done. If that all looks okay, take the service info and contact each dealer who has done a...

    ADS - Enabled today. But no Efficiency mode

    I think that is only present on facelift (2012+) cars, could be wrong though.

    S4 front wheel arch paint problem

    I didn't really look at them before they were fitted, but the body shop that fitted it for me said they had to modify it a little to fit, I think it was because there weren't some holes in my wheel arch lines for some clips to pop into so they cut them off..

    S4 front wheel arch paint problem

    Hi James - The part numbers are 8K0 853 823 and 8K0 853 824, the product description is "Stoneguard.". Just go and look at a B8.5 (facelift around 2012) in the showroom and you will see a little plastic thing on the back of the arch behind the front wheels.

    S4 Avant weight

    My car has a high spec early B8 Avant S-Tronic and it says 1924kg on the V5 (****** hell!) Still gets the advertised 0-60 though (checked through VCDS a few months ago).

    I can confirm that it does I deed still rev to the red line, 7k. I checked several times, it was great! As for the 8K5... It's ringing bells that the 5 isn't Avant, but saloon. And 9 is Avant. I suppose it could just be a number, but The Group are very meticulous with thru part numbers, so it...

    @razza1 Thanks, and thanks so much for all your help whilst I was having all my trouble! @Dippy I'm not sure what you're asking... Do you mean, "Does it change up at red line or before?" I'm curious as to why a gearbox would be specific to an Avant? Seems weird. Also, EU4/5/6 emissions...
