    S4 driving in France

    My lights were on Auto I very much doubt I’ll drive again for long in the dark over here during this trip so it shouldn’t be an issue, but it was a bit of a concern especially after I’d done my research and sworn blind we didn’t need headlamp deflectors!!

    S4 driving in France

    I’m currently in France with the family and the S4. Our long journey here ended up being in the dark and I read before I set off that with Matrix lights there is no need to fit headlight converters, but I was flashed a number of times by drivers on the opposite carriage way. I was loaded to the...

    S4 Rear Tablet Mount

    Thanks for your help. I've just bought a couple of these... TFY Car Headrest Mount Holder for all Kindle Fire You can wrap them both ways round a headrest so think they should work. Using them on the Supersport seat has it's flaws as the headrest isn't square plus the smooth surface on the...

    S4 Rear Tablet Mount

    Since switching to the S4 from the S3 I haven't managed to resolve my tablet mount issue for the kids in the rear. I used to use a Scosche head rest mount, but now I have one piece sports seats these can't be fitted. I tried using the Scosche dash mount fixing them to the back of the seat...

    S4 Avant Rear Valance

    Does anyone know how to remove the rear valance on an S4 B9 Avant? I'm a bit of a novice and I have been stumped by some mounting clips or bolt heads. My guess it that they can be prised off with a trim removal tool, but I would like this confirming by an expert before I do any damage! It...

    Carplay keeps disconnecting

    Had the same issue, but went after cable No.2 and has never given me a problem since. The first cable so a cheap one off ebay as I was trying to find something shorter than a standard Apple cable. Now I just use an Apple cable neatly coiled up.

    Tow Bar S4 Avant

    Thanks for the pics. I see what you mean about it being hidden. Any idea if Audi make a rear valance with the hole for the tow bar pre cut? The hole for your retro bar does look quite big.

    Tow Bar S4 Avant

    I'll look forward to seeing these. I'd be interested to see just how low you have to be to actually see the bumper cut when the bar is removed. Out of interest how much was yours fitted? I've been quoted £585 including 7 pin electrics (specific vehicle). I've shopped around quite a bit and...

    Tow Bar S4 Avant

    I know there are going to be few wide eyed people reading this thread, but I’m considering fitting a detachable tow bar to my S4 Avant to be used with a bike carrier. I’m wanting to know if anyone has done this as a retro fit and has photos? My biggest worry is what the rear valance will look...

    Thanks. I had lights in the doors on my S3 so just assumed the S4 would have them as well :huh:

    S4 Door Warning Lights

    This might be a basic question, but I have just noticed that the red warning lights in my door sills are not eliminating when the doors are opened. I think I have been too preoccupied by the 4 rings puddle lights to notice!! I am assuming these are lights and not just reflectors? I can't find...

    Dancing Matrix LEDs in fog

    I am still trying to get my head around the fact I can in theory drive with full beam on at all times! I used it on a trip down the A1 the other weekend an enjoyed watching the light patterns change, but I just kept thinking I was dazzling others?! Even without full beam on the lights seem...

    B9 S4 Advant Used Prices

    I had been watching the S4 Avant used market for most of this year and like you wanted the Pan Roof plus a few other toys, but the Pan Roof really hampered my search. I set myself a budget of around £35K, but nothing was coming up below £40K until the other week when I found one in Blue at...

    S3 to S4

    Have you considered the Black Styling pack? Its mad that you're getting all that car for £1 more a month, but that's PCPs for you. I was told that due to there being loads of S3s around now the PCP deals aren't as competitive. I wonder how the S4 will compare 2 years down the line? I told the...

    S3 to S4

    I felt the S4 felt was more of a grown ups car and at 44yrs I'm still fighting growing up!! I've got to ring the dealer today and say it's a "No for now", but I'm wondering how easily they'll take that. The fact of the matter is I just didn't love the car enough to push my finances and fall out...

    S3 to S4

    You sound like you are either in the trade yourself or know the trade very well. I seem to remember them quoting £3000 Audi discount + £3500 dealer so you are pretty much right with your figures. The car they are offering me is more than my spec, but I just want the above spec and a lower...

    S3 to S4

    May I ask where you are getting your figures from as they are better than what I was offered today? Ideally I wanted to put a deposit of £5000 and monthly figures of £450 max, but £7000 with £450 was best they could offer. I should state that this was on a ready available car worth £52,000.
