Thats abit of a change from an A1 to Rs4 ! :0
The Rs4 is a beatiful car.
Look out for bad wear on the bolster on the Bucket seats.

DRC = Dynamic Ride Control

The shock absorbers are cross connected with fluid via a valve block. It allowes the suspension to be soft(er) when in a straight line for a better ride but stiffen up for better handling.

No probs.

Take your time and find a good one, there's some really dodgy well over-priced ones out there as well as some almost mint ones at sensible money.

Had mine from new in July 2006 and absolutely love it still.

Budget on 20mpg in normal mixed use (less if urban commuting) and anything up to 26 on long motorway runs.

You're not trying hard enough :eyebrows:

I'm averaging between 14-16mpg, but most of my driving is around town.

In the winter of 2008 I managed 12mpg on my (then) urban commute - but that was exceptionally cold and I was averaging 8mph in the start-stop traffic queues :thumbsup:
