    S6 questions

    Hello again! I used to have a B8 S4 avant and moved on to my current car (Jaguar XFR) and now I am thinking of moving back into an estate potentially an S6 avant. I am just wondering how common the gearbox issues that the early S4’s suffered with are in the S6, I would like to tune the car to...

    My 2010 S4 avant

    No that wasn’t me, it’s one car I haven’t owned to be fair. Thanks for the comment though it really is a beast! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s just backboxes or probably axle back I would say on the XFR Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My 2010 S4 avant

    Just had the spires stage 2 exhaust fitted this afternoon, so far it’s terrible for fuel economy but quite excellent for my ears! I will have to give it a couple of hundred miles to bed in before seeing what it’s really like but it already sounds like it has unleashed the potential of the...

    My 2010 S4 avant

    So I have now ordered a spires stage 2 exhaust for the car so expect a video of that at somepoint next week! But if anyone is interested at all just give it a google and have a listen!

    My 2010 S4 avant

    Took the car out for its first proper run on some decent country 'A' roads and wow... I have never been in anything like it for pure overtaking ability, With the car in dynamic mode and the gearbox in sport or on the paddles the thing just fly's! The torque is the main thing it just surges and...

    My 2010 S4 avant

    I haven’t read much about issues with the facelift, they are electrically actuated and I believe there can be a fault with them but I seem to remember it didn’t look like it would cost the earth to fix... if you look hard enough every car has its issues but these from most of what I have read...

    My 2010 S4 avant

    It was by far the cheapest car in the garage that I bought it from as well, they had a lambo huracan performante in there and a 650S as well as a 911 GTS... so it was worth buying it to sit in a couple of them haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My 2010 S4 avant

    Yeah I know what you mean, this car would have been circa £75k I think when new as it is spec’d... it feels like a much more expensive car than the Audi did as well to be fair. I paid £26k for this one and that seems about the going amount, it has approx 25k miles and basically feels brand new...

    My 2010 S4 avant

    Yeah I took the plunge! So it’s rated at 510ps and 461lb.ft but from all I have read that’s a conservative number, it’s red leather inside with heated and cooled seats, has alcantara roof lining keyless everything, 8 speed ZF that I am very impressed with... I thought I might notice a slower...

    My 2010 S4 avant

    So I did end up selling the S4 and getting a V8... a 5.0 V8... a supercharged 5.0 V8... It did 31mpg on the way home and is fairly lively under acceleration! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oil

    I found that mine used a bit of oil on 5W30 when it was tuned so I went to 5W40 and it hasn't used a drop since the service a couple of thousand miles ago so it does seem a bit strange to have gone for 0W30.

    Help Please Drone Control

    I personally can't imagine the noise is that much different with AWE track and standard downpipes and Milltek non-resonated, I have had resonated and non resonated on my milltek and don't find the drone bad at all on the non-resonated and it sounds absolutely epic when you give it some, I think...
