    Anyone gone from B8 S4 to B9 272 Diesel?

    Looking for opinions and comparisons please. Had a B8 S4 and in the market for an estate now. The B9 272 diesel looks attractive but others have said the steering and handling was vague and mushy. Thanks in advance.

    Audi A4 B8 1.8 TFSI Timing chain failure

    1.8 with a timing chain? I doubt it very much. Buy yourself a code reader for the obd port and see what that tells you. Far too early to be talking about scrapping it. That's crazy.

    Audi S4 Potential Purchase

    Don't let that put you off bud. I get that Friday Feeling every time i drive mine. A car of that nature has to be well looked after though. I'd be getting the AA or RAC premium Road check as well. Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk

    Audi S4 Potential Purchase

    I have read on here of there being issues with the post 2011 box but it was inferred not as many. I've also read of there being 2 revisions to the original S4 gearbox. Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk

    Audi Extended Warranty........should I buy?

    I don't know how many facelifted S4's had the gearbox fail but I've read on here it's not limited to the pre-facelift. Mine ('59) needed a full gearbox and boy am I glad I had the warranty. Around £10k to have it replaced. Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk

    Audi S4 Potential Purchase

    It's not just the mechatronics that can go (a few grand to replace), the whole thing can need replaced. Mine needed done and luckily I had an All Components Warranty as the previous owner bought it from Audi and the warranty was transferable. It's £7.5k just to buy the gearbox and closer to £10k...

    Does a remap leave a time/date stamp?

    Need to find if it is possible to trace a time/date stamp on a car that has been remapped. Bought a car which is not as it seems and a potential warranty claim could be a necessity. Dont want to give away too much just now but definitely in need of some help please
