    S4 driving in France

    Look at the photo I posted above: doesn't look very flat, does it?

    S4 driving in France

    Doesn't make sense for Audi to say they don't need adjusting in that case, does it? Surely they need deflectors for use in dipped mode when driving on the right?

    S4 driving in France

    I know how they work, thanks. And it's left hand drive, not right (we are in the UK). As you are obviously some sort of automotive lighting expert, perhaps you could enlighten (pun intended) us on how the beam pattern I showed on the photo (which was with the lights dipped, not in matrix mode)...

    S4 driving in France

    I had the same issue (see here). No excessive load (just a couple of bags in the boot and only 2 people on board). Parking facing a wall with the lights on revealed they definitely still had a left bias in France, with the left side of the beam noticeably higher than the right: Had quite a long...

    Audi Pre Sense fault

    Pre-sense basic only tightens the seatbelts, closes windows and turns on the hazard lights - it doesn't brake. Pre-sense city should have braked for him if he was going under 85km/h, but the list of situations in which it might not work in the manual is pretty long so it's entirely possible that...

    New MY2020 Facelift...

    It's not on the main Audi UK site, but you can use the dealer car configurator to configure / price the UK 2020 A4/S4 if you want: has been on there for 2-3 weeks now I think.

    Decisions, decisions...

    Not a facelift: it’ll be one of the 250 pre-configured “sport edition” cars Audi released for the UK market a few weeks ago. They have some additional options as standard (black pack, sport exhaust, pano roof, 5-arm milled alloys IIRC) but you can’t add any other options, pick colour etc.: you...

    Post Pics Of Your A4/S4 B9 In Here

    Did you just manage to get an order in before the cutoff on the petrol S4 or was that an approved used?

    Decisions, decisions...

    Kind of in the same boat: PCP is up (very) soon on my 2016 A4, was all set to get a facelift S4 but then it went diesel and is only a bit quicker 0-60 than my current 272 diesel so I don't think justifies the money to upgrade to it (plus you can't actually order one yet and I quite fancy trying...

    Have you heard the S4/S5 rumour...

    This all just makes the S4 decision more baffling. Lord knows what they were thinking, be interesting to hear the real reasons if they ever do come out.

    Do we have an Audi parts discount

    Ok, so that’s ridiculous on two counts: £350 for a key, you have got to be kidding, plus the S4 one’s not replaceable? Forgotten how to make them, have they? :shrug: Lordy, hope you and any passengers were ok. What happened?

    Post Pics Of Your A4/S4 B9 In Here

    With the factory-fit privacy glass you don't notice much of a difference in light transmission when you're looking from the inside out: with aftermarket tints, does it look as dark from the inside as it does from the outside?

    New MY2020 Facelift...

    Have to say that when I saw the photos I thought "this looks ****". However, I watched the Autogefuhl video and in the video the exterior looks much better. Will reserve full judgement until I see one in the metal. Mixed feelings about the touchscreen: I too worry about the lack of tactile...

    Have you heard the S4/S5 rumour...

    That was my reading (admittedly with my pretty poor German) of the Audi.de site as well - you can still buy S4s there but only ones that are dealer stock.

    Not got rid of the RS4 have you? :astonished:

    Have you heard the S4/S5 rumour...

    I think they've lost their collective minds, for two reasons: (a) S models are meant to be for enthusiasts, who I can't imagine are going to be very happy with a TDI (b) 5.1s 0-60 for the S6 Avant (and therefore probably another 1/4s faster for the S4 if they go down the same route)? My v6 272...

    New A4 272 tdi owner

    Have to say mine doesn't seem particularly rough at idle: I've never noticed any vibration while stationary (at least not any more than in any other car I've had). Hard to say via a forum if yours is normal or not though, ours could be exactly the same and I could just not be noticing something...

    Have you heard the S4/S5 rumour...

    Yeah, fair point. will need to start thinking about what to do pretty soon though as with then long lead times for orders at the moment I reckon I'll need to order in March/early April to get the new one through for when my current one needs to go back. Having said that they'd more then likely...

    Have you heard the S4/S5 rumour...

    Well, if this is true include me in the "disappointed" group: was thinking S4 to replace my 272 diesel when the PCP is up later this year - have been waiting patiently for the facelift details to emerge. No idea what I'll do now: hand back the current car and look at approved used S4, or look at...
