    Hi there I picked up my Ibis White B8 Avant 2.0 TDI 170 S Line Executive the other month it’s a nice upgrade from my previous Seat Exeo ST (Snidey A4 B7). The Exeo had the 140bhp engine so the A4 is a nice power increase but still economical enough. I’ve always being into German cars previously owned 3 Mini Cooper S’s (2 hatches, 1 Clubman) , a polo TDi briefly for a daily and the SEAT which was a rebadged A4 B7.

    It has lots of extras including full heated leather, B&O, Sat Nav, Black Pack, Electric Seats, Electric Tailgate, RS4 19’s, Mulimedia package, Park Plus, Technology pack, comfort pack, Adaptive Lights with High Beam Assist.

    The chap had owned the car from new and has only covered 55k so should do us for some time! So far Ive had the cambelt & waterpump changed along with a service at my local VAG specialist (VASSTECH) using all genuine parts. I’ve also fitted a Carbox boot liner which was a must for us as a pram spends the majority of the time in there. My dad had his Genuine cup holder ashtray left over from his A3 so I’ve pilfered it :)

    Future plans:
    • New discs & pads
    • Replace rear tyres
    • And just enjoy the car and get some miles covered!!

    Pics to follow once I’ve worked out how to use this resize app I’ve downloaded:)

    Nice car, suggestion, de-badge the rear, add black rings. This mod makes the back of the car look a lot nicer, especially when it's a Black Ed.

    Thanks, Ive been considering debadging tbe rear unsure on the black badges but could leave the ring badge on for now and possibly change at a later date. It’s not actually a black edition this car but has been specced like one with a few more toys. I originally wanted a black edition but couldn’t get my head around no mmi buttons around the centre console it looks naked with out :)

    Looks like a Black Ed. black gloss interior door inlays etc. only thing that seems to be missing is a Flat Bottom steering wheel.

    De-badged with Black rings looks really good, but it's your car mate, de-badged with silver rings looks good too.

    Yeah it’s an odd one it’s a S Line Excecutive Spec but the original owner specced the Black pack etc. I’ve got the original invoice which with all the extras was just short of 34k! Can the black badges be purchased or do the original ones require spraying?

    Seems like you got yourself a good one with plenty of options fitted. :thumbs up:

    You can get the black rings on ebay, just make sure you get the same size as original one, a lot are smaller. I got the one for an A8, I think.......

    Picked up some bargain brand new Genuine rubber mats F&R for £30 on eBay they were only 20 miles down the road as well!

    Also it’s taken me a couple of months to realise this, when cleaning today I came across the first aid kit behind the armrest. Was this a standard thing on the B8?

    Nice car you have there...Not sure if you would be interested, but I have the same make/model and got a company called Celtic tuning to re-map the 170bhp engine up to a healthy 230! with a similar rise in torque. Cost was £300. As this was there stage 1 re-map, it will work well with all standard components too!

    Thanks Geoff, that’s an impressive gain! I was imagining 200-210 max, I’m quite happy with the power for now but I will never rule out a remap

    Gave the Avant a well deserved clay, polish and seal today ready for the coming months. Gave the Carbon collective hybrid spray a go for the first time, application is a simple as spray on leave for 2 mins then jetwash off vigorously to activate. Supposedly should last 3 months so time will tell but it’s so easy to use as you cover the full car including windows and wheels.

    Also debadged the rear leaving the four rings and S Line badge. I know most leave only the four rings but I quite like the S Line badge.

    Fitted B8.5 stone guards today it’s certainly tidied it up nicely and added the protection for winter. I followed the advice online of removing the plastic tabs which the facelift model uses and fitted some extra strong double sided tape.

    MOT time tomorrow fingers crossed it keeps up its 100% record! After this due to a slight change in circumstances it will be going up for sale, the other half has started working closer to home so looking to switch to a petrol as our yearly mileage has significantly dropped. I would happily have a petrol B8 Avant but the TFSI engines just seem more hassle than what they are worth with the oil consumption issues and my budget will unfortunately not stretch to a S4.

    So if anybody is looking for a high spec low mileage Avant in fantastic condition drop me a message.

    Spec below:

    2010 Audi A4 S Line Executive 2.0 TDI 170bhp Manual.
    Previous Owners: 1
    Colour: Ibis White
    Mileage: 57500 (still in use so will rise slightly)
    MOT: March 2019

    Spec & Extras include:

    *Full Black Milano leather Heated Electric Memory Seats (rare)

    *19” 7 Arm RS4 alloys with Dunlop Sportmax tyres all round.

    *Technology Pack

    *Comfort Pack

    *Sat Nav

    *Audi MMI with Jukebox Hard Drive, SD slots & DVD player

    *Bluetooth telephone preparation with voice control.

    *Bang & Olufsen

    *DAB Radio

    *Park Plus (front & rear sensors)

    *Adaptive Lights

    *Black Styling Pack (grill, window trim, gloss black dash inserts, black headlining, roof bars, privacy glass)

    *Power Operated Tailgate (rare)

    *High Beam Assist

    *Plus the usual S Line extras including Climate control, Electric mirrors, Electric windows, cruise control, steering controls etc.

    The overall spec for when the car was purchased new was 34k! (With invoice to prove)

    Service History:
    19,076 miles Audi Grimsby
    27,380 Audi Grimsby
    30,833 Audi Doncaster
    51,254 Moorwell Servie Station
    55,092 Vasstech (Cambelt & Waterpump & Full Service)

    HPI Clear with report to prove.

    Shame you have to sell. you only just got it. surely it's more cost effective to keep the car than take the depreciation AND buy another car with another set of depreciation? or are you worried the diesel will get buggered with all the the short journeys?

    At the moment the cost of diesel and the MPG from short journeys is outweighing the benefits but having said that we usually cover some good mileage at the weekends. Luckily I feel I bought the car at the right price so hopefully shouldn’t loose much or any plus it being a well specced car will help. For now the plan is to try my luck selling and if nothings come of it I will happily keep it!
