    Changing front brake pads

    TRW pads if you want OE spec. Normally cheap to buy as well. Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    Performance non oiled filter

    Like Gaz said use oe. The blades on my turbo turbine looked like they had been sandblasted 6 months after fitting a pipercross filter when I had my A5. Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    Pad/Disc replacing Front & Rear

    Done mine front and rear and if you've done them previously on a B8 or 8.5 you'll have no issues. You will however need some software for the electronic hand brake. I used Carista Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    B9 S4 aluminium interior trim scratches - replace or wrap?

    It can be removed. I took it out, wrapped then put it back. If I remember correctly it's plastic welded. I just dabbed some JB weld where the plastic welds were to keep it in place Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk

    Anyone gone from A4 272 to S4 or vice versa?

    I traded my 460hp B8 S4 in last year for a B9 A4 avant 272. The 272 is a great car and the torque really makes it feel fast, but trust me if you want something to give you the fizz so to speak never get a diesel. The fact that you only have about 3k revs to play with, anything else is pointless...

    Looking to upgrade to 3.0 diesel

    On the mpg front don't be too put off. I sold my 470hp S4 last year to get this diesel avant I have now, needed the space for kids. The mpg isn't massively different depending how you will drive it. If i went on a decent run in the S4 with the odd boot now and then it returned high 30s no...

    Looking to upgrade to 3.0 diesel

    I had a 240hp A5 3.0 tdi manual and I now have the 3.0 tdi 272 A4 b9. I would say the difference in performance is very noticeable, although I think the auto has a part to play in that as well. Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk

    Rear wiper clogg problems

    My old A5 clogged up when using aftermarket fluid, I couldn't believe it but it is a known problem. Only use the oe G052164M2 stuff now and no issues since with all my vag cars. Sent from my JSN-L21 using Tapatalk

    Remap options for A4 272 Quattro?

    Exactly [emoji23]. I had a front wheel drive one as a courtesy car and it just felt wrong, a bit like having sex with your socks on.. [emoji23] Sent from my JSN-L21 using Tapatalk

    Scratched aluminium interior trim - help!

    It can be wrapped quite easily which seems to be the best and cheapest option. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/b9-s4-aluminium-interior-trim-scratches-replace-or-wrap.405719/&share_tid=405719&share_fid=2376&share_type=t&link_source=app B9 S4...

    You sure your not running a sneaky hybrid turbo? ;) Plus all vags seem to make more power stock than quoted. My old b8 s4 made 358 bhp stock. Obviously readings vary on different RRs.

    I know you say you are disappointed with the dyno numbers but the car must have drove well with 500lbft of torque? Sent from my JSN-L21 using Tapatalk

    B9 S4 aluminium interior trim scratches - replace or wrap?

    I used 3m 1080 vinyl. Brushed titanium which is product code BR-230. They do a brushed aluminium as well which is code BR-120. I've attached the colour chart from 3m. I bought mine from ebay but I'm sure it's available elsewhere...
