B8 S4 - new member, not such a new owner


Registered User
I've owned my B8 S4 for just over a year now and having done a lot of modding, thought it would be a good idea to finally join a forum. Hopefully I can learn a few things but also help anyone else along the way.

So... my car

2009 B8 S4 3.0 V6 saloon in red
7 speed S-Tronic DSG
Tech Pack
Comfort Pack
Side Assist
Reversing Camera
Adaptive Cruise Control
Bang & Olufsen Sound System
Sports Diff
Supersports black and silver leather seats (memory)
19" 7-arm double Alloys (which I've now swapped to 19" peelers)




Front Big Brake Kit - 4 pot Brembo calipers from the A7 repainted in brembo red with decals. This is a direct fit for the B8 S4 and can utilise the standard disc
Centric Posi-Quiet Ceramic pads imported from the US (low dust)
Tarox 345mm F2000 Front Brake Discs
Goodridge Braided Hoses Front and Rear
ATE Typ200 Brake Fluid
MTech slotted rear discs / EBC Redstuff Pads
H&R Anti-Roll Bars
H&R OE Sport Springs (subtle drop)
Ultra Racing Mid Lower Chassis Brace
Forge Silicon Intake Pipe
Pipercross Air Filter
Full LED replacement - everything has been upgraded and I mean everything. Even the indicator bulbs and reverse light which both look superb btw
RS5 pedals

Stage 1 Remapped to 420 bhp / 389 ft. lbs by Rick @ Unicorn Motor Developments
DSG Remap - launch control / derestricted / rev limit increased

I have a JHM overdrive pulley and belt ready to take the car to Stage 2. Just need to find time to get it done and remapped. Should see a nice shift in torque and a little more power afterwards

Thanks Sandra.

I'm pretty happy with the car now so nothing major planned other than stage 2. I'd love to update the mmi to a newer version but there aren't many options for less than £1500!
