    New alloys help

    One more point, getting 21" tyres matching is a nightmare so be careful when going down the 21" route.

    New alloys help

    Harv, Sorry to say but your are wrong on this subject, if you request a quote from Audi & then look at the Rep price, on some designs, you could end up paying literally the same price for one 1 wheel from OEM compared to a rep set!

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    Hi Jack, I went down the route of just a Stage 1 & gear box re-map from DMS Automotive, the car now gives me 460bhp & 600Nm torque, more than plenty!! LOL And for piece of mind, you get 3 year warranty & they will come to you not matter where you are if there are any issues of if you need the...

    S4 Avant (pre-facelift) buying advice please

    I have the 2018 S4, Black Edition with the Pan-roof & the Matrix, no problems at all (fingers crossed). Only had the matrix in use when in a non-lit area and they are amazing but generally live in the City so not much requirement. The pan-roof for me is a must, love the light in the cabin and...

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    Kondax, LOL!!! I did have the same feeling...2K for a piggy back??? But i suppose you are just paying for the name! I am concerned regarding the warranty, don't want to give Audi any reason to point the finger at me if anything goes wrong!!! So probably wait until March next year and you never...

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    WOW!!! Dippy you are a legend, thanks mate that is really helpful & yes i have also looked at APR and that, tbh was what a lot of friends were saying but its just the warranty thing!! I may wait until next March and go with JB4, ABT quoted £2K which i don't mind paying but as long as it gives me...

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    Kondax, i just want a bit more HP and not mess about with anything else, do you think the JB4 will be sufficient for what i am looking to do? Also, is it easy to install?

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    Sorry but kick me if i am being thick as i am new to the "tuning" arena but are you saying that the JB4Race Chip is a better option than the ABT tune?

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    Thank you for the reply BUT apparently (and i have done my research) the ABT Tune does not affect your warranty as it is a separate module...quote from ABT: We offer ABT 'AEC' (ABT Engine Controller) this is an additional engine control module, which works in conjunction with the original...

    S4 B9 Stage 1

    Hi All, Looking to tune to stage 1 on my S4 B9, is it only ABT that do a tune that will not affect your warranty or does anyone know of an alternative company? Cheers

    Upcoming Recall. A4 2.0TFSI 190ps

    Oh man!! Hopefully this is not applicable to the S4, mine is going in for a inspection on Monday so will ask the question then with Audi. Done 19000 on my Hankook on my B9 S4, plenty of tread still left BUT it all depends on how you drive and you did mention the word "harsh" earlier!! LOL

    Service Due - Or Is It?

    My inspection light came up first and then when i called Audi, they advised me because of the low mileage i do, to book it in when the Oil change was due so both done at the same time, i have found that it does depend on whom you speak to. My car only turned 2 years old March 1st and the...

    Audi Ensurance - brilliant free service

    By the way it only covers you for 3 years & then you have to register again. The only way you can register is via the website but not working at the time of me posting this thread.

    Audi Ensurance - brilliant free service

    Can someone confirm Audi Ensurance will still provide a free courtesy car even if you haven't got one included with your regular insurance policy? ( I haven't) Cheers It does say "at their discretion" "Additionally, if you were not at fault and there is a traceable third party motor insurer...

    Offset !

    ET45 is not too high as ET49-51 is what is "recommended" by OEM and again ET35 is not a wrong offset but the wheel must be a 8J. It is all down to preference and what sort of look you are after. I am in the wheel game Peto so i do with a lot of enquiries of this nature, some people don't mind...
