1999 S4 Avant dark green 90k bought 2 years ago so don't know of any mods.

No photo as car is dirty all the time hacking between Nelson - Blenheim.

No mods that I know of but I'm very happy with it. Brilliant for what I need.

Wouldn't mind a little less understeer though, and the MTM chip sounds interesting.

Need new tyres this year. Lots of tight corners and icy bits.

Any thoughts on best choice welcomed

Cheers

if losing a wee bit of clearance isn't too much of an issue for you then a set of new springs and suspension coupled with a stronger sway bar could correct quite a bit of the understeer. an eibach spring and bilstein combo worked really well for my A4. coilovers would probably be overkill if you're just using it for cruising. i've recently just set my front wheels close to zero toe-in, haven't had the chance to push hard yet, but does seem a bit more responsive. feels like it's understeering less but could all be wishful thinking. :-\

not sure what your tuning options are down there in regards to chips or remapping. do you ever take the car north? revo is in mt maunganui, they can remap the chip in the car while you wait:

a few other folks seem to be singing the praises of www.chiptuning.co.nz but they're in auckland.

I have a 2001 1.8TQ Avant Le Mans. No mods but it is a great package as is. The photo below was taken a couple of days ago on Waikare Rd driving between Auckland and Tauranga.

Looks like a Regular A4 1.8t Quattro Avant to me? I thought Le Mans A4s came with Body Kit Chip Exhaust and BBS RC Wheels

Nope, no std BBS or body kit on lemans.

Lemans gets 1/2 Leather (option for full), 17", Quattro GmbH suspension, white dials, different steering, MTM stage 1, CD Stacker, Spoiler (sedan), S4 seats (prior to recaro), Alu dash trim, stainless trim on exhaust and a few others i cant remember.

The Lemans was and still is rated real well by all the Audi dealers. Its a sportier drive than the B6. In tight twisties, its got more natural balance than by B5 RS4, but obviously lacks the RS'4 extra HP.

Here is my Lemans (random shots), after then adding BBS and Body Kit, Miltek rear exhaust.

Did you think that Noels Le Mans was standard?

Yep it is an unmodified Le Mans (avant). That's how they came, probably a bit understated but that is partly why I liked it. A really well balanced car - great handling.

That Jacquard cloth seat material is superb stuff - had the same leather/jacquard combo on my 96 A4 - it is bullet proof.

If you are looking for a long term keeper a Le Mans would be a GREAT choice.

Looks identical to my brothers wagon in sydney (although his is called a "GT"). He's just slapped some A8 replica wheels on his.

The AU cars have the same wheels, but they dont get the rest of the lemans package.

Hi.
I'm a newby to the forum action, but i'll kick off with my details.
2001 nz new 1.8T Quattro.
Forge Divertor valve, K & N filter, cat back Neuspeed stainless exhaust sytem, (groovy) Neuspeed short shifter.
Bilstein sport shocks and Neuspeed sport springs. Lowered vehicle an additional 25mm from the factory sport suspension, but massive improvement in ride quality and stability. Also Neuspeed 21mm rear sway bar. Probably one of the best things you could do to eliminate the push some Audis get when driven hard. Like mine did.....
19 x 8.5 imported ssw alloys and Goodyear F1s.
I've been tinkering with my Audi for 2 years, and i bring all these sorts of bits in from the USA.
My next upgrade is installing my GT28rs turbo charger, front mount intercooler and Revo stage 3 software......can't wait.
 :D
