dunno about nitrogen, but i finally found someone in NZ that uses a wallnut shell blaster similar to what people talk about on the other US/EU audi forums - and all i can say is HOLY s**t it was way better

i guess its subject to who/how well the CC was done before


Details please?

Keen to get my B7 RS4 Carbon cleaned... Feeling a bit flat and it's been almost 3 years! Last time it made a real significant difference.

Giltraps just quoted me $2300!!! Fark off surely that's a rip? Who else is doing a good honest job of this in Auckland?

Walnut blasting contact? Did you get to see the finished result, was it clean?

Cheers Guys.

BM Workshop do Walnut Carbon Cleaning or try Syntech Surface Finishing, they should know who as they supply the Walnut media for blasting.

I'm giving the Carbon clean that Clint in Grey Lynn does a go. Had a good chat to him, and I thought at that price, its worth a go- if i'm not impressed or it makes very little difference in terms of performance i'll book it in to do it properly as i had budgeted for it in my maintenance this year. will report back.

I think it is - they are on Home St.  Really good guy, knows his RS4's and has one.  Not a massive change in mine but I think it needs the full scrape out.  By all accounts the nitrogen is a preventative measure.  Get them fully cleaned, only use 98, and a nitrogen blast once in a while and should remove for the need to do the full clean.  H gave me some additive which I am hoping has fixed my potential leaking injectors.  All round good rooster is Clint

Yes, just had it done today- Clint Barber and his brother Matt run the business. (Matt is actually an old regular customer of mine from Welly days, so we had a good old chat). Clint also explained the process, and it doesn't remove the oil sludge build up, he was pretty upfront about it. They now offer the full clean out service which i will do in about 5000kms (as i just did an oil change). They look after about 8 B7 RS4's and have done close to 30 carbon cleans on them. He himself is a huge fan of the car and has owned two.

At first drive, throttle response is MUCH better, revs out far easier at idle and power delivery and cold start is much smoother. I think as waxer mentioned this i s great preventative maintenance step, coupled with a good clean and changing oil regularly this will keep the car ticking along nicely. I can't wait for the run up to the mount this weekend!

Here are their updated details for anyone who is keen- Please mention VASK if and when you book in!

Hi all, I know this topic has probably been overdone but I'm looking for recommended places for a full carbon clean for my B7 RS4 in Auckland? A couple of quotes came back over $2K which seems pretty excessive. Thanks!

Hiya mate,

I'd recommend Brodie European (as many on this forum would I guess...). From memory it cost me around $1500 but they did a great job. Before and after photos show this.

Stay away from the intake spray-in solutions. Effing snake oil.

the rs4 is possibly the most prone to carbon build up,
We do this in wellington and are affiliated to matt and clint barber in akl  . see carbonclean.co.nz
best idea is to have the intake manifold removed and clean this following up with a 2 step process using a professional
strength motovac intake cleaner put in while engine is running followed by  a hydrogen treatment to clean the injector f. ace,combustion chamber,plugs
oxy sensor etc. quite often after 100,000km you get issues with the intake manifold swirl flaps (hinge wear).
there is a modification.
call on 027 7337270 for more information. thxs John

What sort of interval (time? km?) should be between carbon cleans?

Mine was done May 2017 by Matt and Clint according to the service records but they didnít indicate the KMs at the time.
