Congrats on the purchase! I've had a fair share of issues with my NZ NEW B8 S4 Avant when I first purchased it, so if you ever do run into some issues happy to lend an ear and advice as I probably have gone through it all
- Stronic gearbox
- Mechatronics unit
- Coolant leaking
- Door locks jamming

Good thing you have the silver circle warranty, far better than thew aftermarket ones as the maximum claim value is a larger sum

What issues with the doors?  I've had to replace 3 of mine so far...and looking like the drivers side starting to stick.

I have a 2007 A4 DTM (limited) ex Japan.
It has the usual DTM stuff plus K&N filter, coilover suspension, rides on 3 piece 20" rims current with nitto rubber.
It is silver grey with tints etc.

That pic is pre tints in the showroom, I've since had cambelt waterpump service done, transmission service and other bits and pieces to baseline the maintenance program. I'm thinking next mish will be a down pipe and tune. More focussed on reduction of exhaust gas temp to prolong the life of the turbo than gains in hp although apparently these can pump it up to around 260hp+

Think i saw you today driving around the bays? Your plate VRSPRG? or similar??

Hi Guys,

Just pick this up. 05 paddle shift.

Go into get this done on the 14th of Dec,


Stage 2 Tune (with the inclusion of de-cat pipes and cold air intake)

+40hp @ Peak
+60nm @ Peak

The addition of the cat delete pipes massively opens bottom end torque delivery and give the car a much better power curve across the range, better throttle control via a linear throttle spread and better off the line drive..


A full exhaust system from Milltek will consist of cat delete pipes and a cat back combined Depending on the level of sound your after wed recommend the non-center resonated cat back they sound by far the best the resonated center set up is a bit too quiet for most, especially if you really want to hear it bark when youre on the gas, conversely when just cruising about on light throttle the system is very compliant.       


We have used the EVOMS brand on S4s in the past and find they are a great fit, look good, add a nice front-end growl and importantly they hugely aid throttle response. 

Looking forward to the journey

Cheers Smiladon
