    Held my breath returning to Heathrow's Meet & Greet and taking a lonngggg time looking around the car. Fortunately, there wasn't a mark on it and I had nice refined and quiet 1 1/2 hour drive home, despite the M25. Compared to the Camero convertible I'd driven 2,000 miles in over the previous 11 days, the A4 was built on another planet!

    Yesterday I took delivery of my long awaited S4, and spent the day familiarising myself with the controls and driving it as much as possible. It was a fun day!

    I really couldn't be happier with it so far, the noise is quite addictive.

    Hi. If you don't mind me asking....how much does that kind of service cost?
    It's on my to do list....my bonnet and boot are covered in awful swirls and holograms! Would they be able to fix this kind of thing?
    Thanks

    You should be proud, as that is an amazing deep colour, particularly under the lights.

    Fitted the ECS Carbon fog overlays to match the ECS front lip and OEM carbon mirror covers.

    Fog overlays give a bit more of an aggressive look as they protrude more from the grill....very happy

    Looks great. Does give the front 'attitude'. The carbon fibre goes nicely with the Daytona Grey.
    Have considered the c/f lip, may be later. Their full lower spoiler is too low though.

    I’m just trying to keep it subtle, the lower spoiler a bit too much for me and yes would worry about catching it on kerbs etc!

    I assume you have a loom. Grey and brown free ends and green and yellow with connectors?

    Assuming the loom has the same connections as mine you need to connect the following:

    Parking Brake connector:
    - Solder Grey to the cable in Pin 5
    - Solder Brown to the cable in Pin 6

    There are two 73 pin connectors in the passenger footwell - just above the fuses. 73A is nearest the rear - 73B nearest to the front.

    - Connect the Green to Pin 31 of 73B
    - Connect the Yellow to Pin 17 of 73A

    I also had to adapt the connector to the HHA button because it was for a LHD car button but it was fairly straight forward with a scalpel.

    Dropped off my car for its two year service, air con service and the rattle from the rear parcel shelf looked into.
    Didn't really notice not having the tuning box as the TCU tune has made so much of a difference to the way in which the car performs. I would say just having that is good value.

    They have given me a black Q2 1.4tfsi manual to run about in. It is a cheeky car but really notice the lack of extra's my A4 has. So quaint to have to unlock the car by pressing a button on the fob and actually use a key to start the car. Seems very old fashioned these days.
    Still the engine is good enough to keep up with the cut and thrust of urban traffic. Refined although I would say slightly noiser than the one I had in my A3 saloon. Certainly the car as a whole is noticably noiser with tyre roar and slap and plenty of wind rustle around the door mirrors as well, but acceptable though. The mpg on my car going over was around 42mpg and the Q2 was 42-45mpg, so not alot of difference really.

    Well a rattle free drive back from Audi, before I celebrate on a job well done I will check on the tyre pressures first, because the car feels a little softer. Of course this could down to having been driving around in a Q2 all day with the A4 suspension being more refined.

    Whilst it was in they performed a software update to the windscreen mounted camera, however what this has done they did not know but I guess they've been requested to do so by Audi.
    The TSB is numbered 90k9 if anyone is interested but I guess it hasn't put my TCU tune back to default?
    I guess I could just apply it again to be sure..,

    Dropped the car off at Audi Huddersfield to (hopefully) sort an annoying rattle/squeak from the passenger door. The tech thought he knew what it was. So they've got it until a week on Wednesday whilst we soak up some Fuerteventura sun. Well impressed with the professional response & service. Recommended.
