    Hi I'm new to the forum and in the New Years looking for a B8, have ummed and ahhed about an s4 or Rs4 but wide arches and V8 won me over, driven a few and love them.

    Just looking for advice on common faults on what to look for. Want to spend 25-30k..?

    I'm not far from MRC in Banbury so it will be going there for improvements, exhaust a must and whatever else I can afford.

    thanks in advance Rich

    Hi Rich, fantastic cars.

    The trick is to agree with yourself the spec you need and the spec you want and then be strict.

    A lot of people will say the dynamic pack is a must have. I also ignored all cars that didn't have the pano roof, advanced key, 3g+ nav, memory and black optics.

    Late 13 cars got an update that is desirable.

    At your money you will be looking at high milers (and i still think you'll struggle to go under 30). You need to check the box, diff, final drive servicing and I'd get the disc thickness checked too.

    Maybe an S4 will work out cheaper

    Nice S4s are in your budget. Ropey/high mile/low spec RS4's are just above your budget.

    Dynamic pack was the wheels, exhaust, suspension, b&o sound.

    That's exactly it. New one lands in march so they could go up or down depending on how that is received!
