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,

Tuning

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..
 
 


Exhaust

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 we’d 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 you’re on the gas, conversely when just cruising about on light throttle the system is very compliant.       
.

           

Intake
We have used the EVOMS brand on S4’s 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

2000 B5 S4 Santorni Blue Sedan with black/aluminium interior.

Currently engine out and on a stand but previously stage 3 tuned on K24 Hybrids.

Aiming to max out the limits of the stock block while building up another engine in the background with 2.8/2.4 heads and a set of rods.
Have bought some DZX-274 Turbos from Turbo Concpets in the US. Basically mega RS6's with 49/68 compressor and 45mm 9 blade turbines. Apparently 6-700hp turbos but this motor wont see that.
Re-routing intake and charge piping and will look at dual side mount water to air coolers, I don't want to hack the car up for an FMIC but shoudl be able to get a heat exchanger in there without too much hassle.

That's it really. Hoping to get 500hp at the wheels but anywhere north of 400 will be fun enough :)

Hmmm just tried posting a pic and it said "The upload folder is full. Please try a smaller file and/or contact an administrator." Any admins around?

I didn't want to wait for 3-4 months to custom order the car so I took one that was in NZ without the sport diff. It still seems to go around corners pretty well though and has a ton of traction out of slow corners without much understeer. I'm haven't driven one with a sport diff so not sure how much difference it makes. I suspect not having a V8 in the front probably makes more difference than the sport diff...

Most of us host our photos on something like flickr and then just post the image reference in here. Also means you post full resolution photos.
