Well, I thought it's about time I introduced myself after trawling the website for quite a while. Coming from mainly BMW's (BMW E46 M3 & E39 M5), and looking for an affordable performance car I suddenly realized what a lot a car you get for your money with the S4. I started my search, fully aware of all the issues around the timing chain tensioners etc etc, but taking into account how much car you get for your money and the fact that I'm used to pulling engines (Mainly BMW's) I made the decision that even with the possible engine issues, this was still a great choice and at the end of the day I can pull the engine myself and get a specialist to do the timing tensioners, adjusters and if need be replace the chains. I found my new purchase advertised inevitably on ebay, autotrader & pistonheads, so obviously the guy really wanted to sell it.......LOL. I was surprised at the condition when I arrived, a gleaming Nogaro Blue, with perfect bodywork and a decent shine. Checking the service history revealed a full Audi service history from new until 2011, and one specialist from then onwards, religiously serviced annually with bill's totally nearly 9k from new ! ! ! ! Timing Chain Rattle - Non on cold start up. Little top end flutter on Warm start up, happens about once in every six warm starts which I believe could be the inlet manifold Flap, but I will investigate this very soon. So far I've replaced the two front tyres and brand matched them with the rears which were almost new. Given the bodywork a good wash, clay bar, polish & wax. It goes into the body shop next Tuesday for a front bumper respray, few stone chips with a slight scuff and a very slight bit of bubbling paint on the rear of the roof above the passenger door, just by the rain gutter (Probably called something different, but I'm sure you'll know what I mean), so the body shop want to do the whole roof to ensure it comes out perfect, they were not willing to paint and blend, which is fair enough although more expensive. Does anyone know how to remove that strip from the roof so I can make sure there is no corrosion hidden underneath ???????
