I was in the market for an S4 but everytime i went to look at one i found myself lusting over the RS's.

I can't wait to find out all of the ins and outs. I think i got good spec:

Sports package with steering, exhaust and suspension

Black styling

Memory seats and mirrors

Panoramic roof

High audi connect

Anyone Hertforshire or essex based?

The boys had a rolling road day on Saturday. Shame you missed that

Bummer, cant wait to get involved. I used to run an owners club years ago and have missed it through years of boring diesel ownership

That's easy enough. I'll probably stick a catch can on it early doors to stop the worst of it.

Gorgeous example

What finance deal did you get if you dont mind me asking? Im looking to upgrade from my S4 but Audi APR is very very steep for used RS4s.

Enjoy!

Hi.

Woah. You must have had a pretty big deposit then? Even so, 7% is superb for a used model. What was mileage, list price and deposits if you don't mind me asking?

Cheers

Just saw this and recognise the Audi dealer.

I'm from Colchester but work at Land Rover in Stortford.

I'll keep an eye out for you although probably never going to be on the roads at the same time as you.

p.s. I'm in the boring diesel ownership for the time being.... :S

Looks great @DeanoC , almost identical spec to mine!!! Mines black with piano black inlays apart from that its identical. The only thing I haven't got is the ACC which I see you haven't either. Mines now on 35000 miles in 21 months and i've done all of them and still I love the car.

I would, I wish I had. I had a demo vehicle from VW a couple of weeks ago with ACC and its a stunning addition for those who use CC all the time like I do. It really works well on long journeys.

I am starting a new business venture whereby I am buying two new vehicles and ACC has become a must have as we'll be doing a lot of miles. My B9 RS4 will definitely have it also when I swap out the B8.5.

Yea i can imagine it's cool if you use CC. I never do.

I'm a purist and bought this car precisely because it's a drivers car without comprise to emissions or fuel efficiency or low down torque etc. For me a load of aids detract from the experience. I see the logic of having them so you can choose to use them but i never would.

Loads of aids distract? You bought the wrong spec then, you are short of feel with the dynamic steering which cannot be turned off only adjusted, it takes a little getting used to. I do 18k+ a year in mine, I want all the aids which I can turn off when I dont want them.

Also, compared to my C63 and M3 the B8.5 RS4 is sorely lacking in torque, it has to be wound up to get the best out of it. Don't get me wrong, I love it as an all year round car. Compared to my B7 RS4 its not as driver focused either.

I am hoping the torque will return in the B9 RS4, if not it'll be an RS6 next or back to the C63 or what ever its called then.

Stunning RS4 @GeoffDunk

35000 miles in 21 months must be expensive!

"Detract" as in i like to be in total control. I hear you though. This is my first performance car so i only have diesel company cars to compare against.
