    Duck or Grouse...

    £1500, that's crazy! Thanks, Geoff

    Duck or Grouse...

    No lights, nothing noticeable happened, just a flap thump noise and the missing cover when I got home. I haven't gone over it with a magnifying glass yet, in fact I haven't even got the few feathers cleaned off, but there looks to be a tiny little mark on the bumper, and a broken clip where the...

    Duck or Grouse...

    Stupid ****** bird standing in the middle of the road, just round a bend, in the dark and the rain. Headlights picked it out at the last moment (it wasn't wearing high vis and had no lights). I was doing 60 mph, and had no time to brake. When I got home I found the damage, went back to the...

    S4 buying questions

    Fair enough, I was just trying to be even handed, as it's not a clear cut question, and I was in two minds! :blush: It wasn't that I expected the LSD as standard, more that I thought the handling should be good enough without it, if they didn't fit it as standard. And actually, I'd have been...

    New Audi S4 - Am i missing anything?

    I think so, they will both connect but then in the Connection Manager you can choose which connected device (if any) to use for 1st phone, 2nd phone, media player, etc. If I remember, next time I'm in the car I'll take a pic of the screen. Geoff

    New Audi S4 - Am i missing anything?

    If you drive with two mobile phones in the car (you and a passenger) the Audi Phone Box can be useful, because it includes the advanced bluetooth, which allows two phones to be connected at the same time. This is why I got it. Geoff

    New Audi S4 - Am i missing anything?

    Parking Assistance Pack for the 360 degree cameras? Storage Pack, especially for the large extra compartment to the right of the steering wheel? Many people would say the Pano Roof? Cheers, Geoff

    S4 buying questions

    Regarding options, I really like the Carbon Inlays, Light and Vision Pack, Driver Assistance (for the ACC), the 360 degree cameras in the PAP/PAPA and also the Side Assist (blind spot warnings) in the PAPA. Oh, and the Storage Pack, mainly for the surprisingly large extra compartment to the...

    S4 buying questions

    Another question I asked myself, as surely with a proper auto box, hill hold is hardly as necessity? In the end, at only £75 (and your discount will reduce that further) I went for it. So far I've used it once or twice, but don't think I would have missed it. Geoff

    S4 buying questions

    This was pretty much my thinking, and why I didn't go for the Differential, as I'm not intending to track the car or drive near the limits on the road (getting too old for both). Having said that, my S4 Avant does tend to understeer (and lean) a little in the corners. I have no idea how much the...

    S4 buying questions

    The 360 degree cameras are part of the Parking Assistance Pack, not just the PAP Advanced, which is why they don't show separately on the Parking Assistance Park Advanced, as that just says includes Parking Assistance Pack! I have both, and the 360 cameras are fantastic. Since the PAP is only...

    Brasso's B9 S4 Avant Thread

    Not so steady run out yesterday, showing 15.9 mpg after about 20 miles... got caught in traffic and it improved to 18.9 mpg! :sign wow:

    Geoff's B9 S4 Avant Thread

    I know it's bad form replying to my own message, but I popped into the dealers yesterday, as the auto stop start still wasn't triggering, no matter what I did. Up to 1,125 miles now and don't think it has ever kicked in under any circumstances. Anyway, I parked outside, went in and booked it in...

    B9 A4/S4 - Little Surprises

    That's how mine looks, no option to disable auto lock on driving away!

    You would think so, but not that I can find on mine!

    B9 A4/S4 - Little Surprises

    Anyone know a way to stop the doors locking as you pull away? I can't find an option on the MMI, and I really don't like this. I was able to turn it off in every BMW, Porsche and Mercedes I've had. Perhaps I'll have to beg the dealers to do it?

    Not sure how to check voltage, it should be fine though, after such long journeys, and the car starts without problems!

    Geoff's B9 S4 Avant Thread

    In the end I also bought one of these from local Audi dealer. £81 after 10% discount. It's quite nice but doesn't protect the seat backs when folded flat do I guess I'll use a rug or something when I load my bike in the boot!
