Looking good there. I really like Daytona. Yes the rs4 20 inch Ines are really something with the slight concave they have over ours that's the reason I chose them plus I wasn't sure if the more expensive 19s reminded me of skoda vrs wheels?

Haha Don't tell the others that! They look better on the S5 I think. You going to miss the RS3?

I'm already missing it I didn't really want to trade it in at all. But fairs fair wife wants the car we spend the cash on to be the family one that actually gets used and the rs3 was just too small with the two young kids. Once the s4 arrives I will sell out Passat and prob pick up a cheap fiat 500 for dumping at shops and the like

So, this is what compromise feels like eh? Courtesy car. Dropped the S4 off at 0830 only to be told at 1640, your car will not be ready today, it's going through a software update. This, probably isn't going to work and a new control unit will have to be ordered. Yayyyyy. I suspected as much. How long y'all reckon that will take?

Guys. Go have some fun!

It's live. What a looker this thing is. But, no alcantara option in U.K.?!

£95k!!! Audi...you've gone too far haha. Even my conservative 'must have' spec was £80k! But...the performance is incredible. Reminds me of McLaren. Just superb but...no soul? We'll see. The real proof in the pudding is on actual road tests. M3 killer that's for sure.

The crazy green colour is nice. But thought there'd be more. Early days.

Enjoy!! I think you can spec it to £100,000K

Meh...im saving myself for the RS4!

Won't be much better mate. Price wise. £61k I think. Sports diff and VC standard. Carbon pack is £5k! And you still then need to pay £1k for carbon wing mirrors.

It's all about smiles per mile for me. And that 2.9 turbo doesn't do it. Lost a lot of character. Still. Unbelievable machine

Ha ha I won't be buying one either way, although I very nearly did instead of my B8.5 S4
Finance contribution at the time was £6k, and wasn't much more on the monthly cost.
But I bottled it.
Those carbon dressup kits are silly money, and the carbon roof, very nice, but how much!?

£3,250! I mean, it's awesome that they're thinking of these things. Like the M3/4 etc. It does really help with weight and handling. I think it's a return to their hay day in a sense. Even Autocar won't be able to slag the RS4/5 haha But I dunno...just seems like bells and whistles to hide a weak sounding power plant.

You shouldn't have bottled it! I say that because I did too! But I've learned my lesson haha.

Nearly £94,000.00 ? Thats madness !!

Another prospective B8.5 RS4 owner who bottled it & went for a B8.5 S4 instead
Still have my regrets over that one :(

I don't care what anyone says, I think the move from a normally aspirated V8's to twin turbo V6's is a backward t step on both the new B9 RS4 & the new M3/M4's
& yes I know its down to Eu emissions regs
Wonder if they will reverse the decision when we leave the Eu ? ;) :D

Haha. We're wimps arnt we?! I'm going right that wrong though in next year or so. 4.2 heaven!

Imagine...a twin turbo V8 spec just for the UK?! We can dream. It's same with Ferrari and Aston Martin though. They're all going forced induction and it's just pathetic. They sound ridiculous. The new Lusso (V8) sounds like a flipping Focus ST! From inside. McLaren are boring. I do t care what people say haha.

Not much these days, IT support job prospects within schools is going downhill rapidly. Just been told my hours are going to face a 50% cut in one so it is hardly worth getting out of bed for these days. I might struggle just to keep my present car :-(
If I was able to dream then a TT RS roadster lights my touch paper...

If my sums are correct, and most often they fail me, that would mean a usage of around 63 litres. 445 / 32 = 13.9 gallons. 13.9 gallons = 63 litres.
Please be gentle with me...

I'll stop you right there Math...is not my forte Ummmm, it's a 58 litre tank. Smaller than the B8. I done a 58 mile journey just there and now the range reads at 405 miles. In all honesty, it's only because I'm using more of the motorway this past couple of weeks. But still, damn good compromise. Power and not so bad range.

Oh, and exhaust is much louder outside btw guys Since the the tweak.

Thats what I was trying to say, physically it would be impossible to get 63 litres from a 58 litre tank...

So, what does 'theoretical range to empty' mean? How do they derive this? Don't suppose anybody knows what it is for the S4? In all fairness, I've gotten 420 miles from a full tank. Anyway, it's not a priority but it's interesting.

You disappoint me, if you get any more than 58 miles from 58 litres, then you're driving miss daisy!!

I was waiting for this. I drive hard often. Trust me. There's a 50 spot on the A1 at the moment. And I drive chilled on way to work. That's long term memory anyway from when my new MMI unit was installed two weeks ago or so. It was at 28mpg long term before that.

It is probably a equation reached by calculating the amount of fuel remaining to the driving conditions, not necessarily the mpg displayed. Or maybe it is far too clever than us mere humans...
