    Tyre sidewall damage – Replace?

    It's the rim protection. Unless you can see the cords it won't fail, may get an advisory. Per the rules: any ply or cord that can be seen without touching the tyre - fail if by folding back rubber or opening a cut with a blunt instrument, so as not to cause further damage, exposed ply or cord...

    A4/S4 memory seat function retrofit

    Would love to hear how you do with this. I considered the kufatec kit but that was closer to a grand, ended up getting a car with it spec'ed but not having to wait for it to come up on the used market would have been handy!

    B9 S4 - Car making a loud humming noise…

    That's just the standard "check engine" light, could be anything. Car you get hold of a code reader? Failing that any local garage will be able to pull the codes for you for a few quid, only takes 5 mins

    S5 Cavo wheels on A4/S4

    To finish off the thread here are the S5 alloys on the car... The fitment is perfect for me, about 8mm less offset fills the arches nicely with the 255 tyres. Maybe it's a placebo effect but the car feels like it rides better too!

    255/35 r19 tyres with spacers

    Here you go, fitted the new wheels today. These are ET32 vs ET40 stock with 255 wheels, no issues and look perfect to me. Nice bit of poke

    255/35 r19 tyres with spacers

    I haven't got around to swapping the wheels yet, have a big drive coming up this week and didn't want to risk it. Will stick them on in a week or so. Report and pics to follow

    S4 Tyre Wear

    Indeed, my experience is that an RWD car with a decent amount of poke wears the rears quicker. Given the S4 is 40/60 front/rear I guess the front just edges it out with the weight MD braking forces.

    S4 Tyre Wear

    What experience do people have with tyre wear on the S4? I have one with sport diff, do the front tyres wear faster than the rears or vice versa? I was led to believe the S4 is rear biased (poss maybe only with sport diff) so would assume rears wear quicker. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Mitch's S4

    How much did the part set you back? I know the rear arm rest cupholders are basically impossible!

    255/35 r19 tyres with spacers

    I'm swapping my wheels out for some S5 wheels this weekend with an 8mm less offset (ET32 vs ET40 stock for the S4) and 255s on a 19" 8.5J. should be a similar set up (2mm less) than stock plus 10mm spacer. I've read it works fine but if not I'll swap the tyres for 245s...

    S4 B9 Cold Start Rattle

    I can't make it out on the video but the 3.0 in the B9 is well known to have injectors that really tap/rattle at idle/low rpm when cold. Is it present when stationary?

    Well the next A4 is being ruined with electrification

    I'm not bothered at all - would love to own a competent EV estate, none on the market yet. Hoping the infrastructure is in the right place to support it in 3(ish) years time when i chop my current car.

    S5 Cavo wheels on A4/S4

    Thanks - I think the S5 wheels is what I'll end up going with. They do seem a little bit more available

    S5 Cavo wheels on A4/S4

    Thanks - I've seen those guys. All they have at the moment are sets on winters or 1 set on summers that are run flat for some reason! At the moment I'm worried about import duty given they're in Germany. They're already pricey before you start factoring that in...

    S5 Cavo wheels on A4/S4

    Will keep you in mind if I'm successful tracking down some replacements. I do like the standard s-line wheels but I've got my heart set on the 5 spokes

    S5 Cavo wheels on A4/S4

    I have the 5 V-spoke RS wheels on my S4 and I'm not the biggest fan: I've been looking to swap them for the for the other stock 5 spokes that are now fitted standard to the S4: I've been looking for a while and they're as rare as hens' teeth and am starting to think about other options. Has...

    Coding autobrake and DIS view

    You'll need an odb dongle and either the carista app or odbeleven. There would be a cost involved but it's not much. Can't say on the mono DIS but I could enable it in the MMI settings on my golf, I assume similar for the low-res guages
