I actually have an original detachable towbar for RS2 in my garage somewhere. Bought RS4 now so might not need it. It is U shape and goes under bumper. No cutting.

Hi Pause1 post up info/spec on your RS4 in the A4-S4-RS4 section.

Need to find towbar first. It is in a box, in storage, in our garage somewhere. Might only find it when we move into new house in couple of months. If I get an chance I will go scratch. You will need to look under bumper to see if the audi crossbar/ reinforcing bar is under bumper. Quite deep in. Should have a roundish hole wher towbar clips into. Cheers.

Was driving along today when I realised slow b-stard in front towing the trailer was a RS2, and  after a triple take, confirmed it was Gunmetal Grey!!!. All external parts got the trainspotters tick. Have heard of this car before but was a bit scheptical as this is not a factory RS2 color. Can only speculate that this must be the one that was reshelled into a S2 body when trashed early on. Looked in good shape other that doing 60 in an 80 zone  >:(.

Will do. Did write it down but hiding in wifes car somewhere, so tomorrow. Funny enough considering a few previous posts in this thread, I think it was also "DYK" something... :P

It was me and it's very embarrasing!! Had collected the Car on Saturday and desperate to drive it so given it had a tow bar offered to pick up a sofa from waiku for the Mrs, sadly later found out that the Trailer didn't fit the tow bar properly hence driving like a snail, bloody dangerous!! never again. Anyway other than that enjoying the RS2. It's Black not Grey and Rego is DYK 597. Simon's old Car. Mystery solved!! Spending $7500 getting glass out lower half paint in the near future the it wil be A1.

Thinking of getting the hole with tow bar in the bumper covered over, has anyone ever done this and is it likely to cause paint to crack after re-paint? Thoughts? Or should I just leave as is?

Those k's aren't suprising at all  :D

I think handling could do with a upgrade by this time.  polyurethane bushes (although not particularly cheap) will tighten up all the control arms, etc and an upgraded rear anti-roll bar will neutralise some of the understeer that the quattros are all dogged with from the factory.

This might come as a shock - 211,989KM  :o

It was bought NZ new by my father, and it has been up and down the country quite a few times.

The last few S2s out of the factory went thru Audi's motorsport division, and luckily we got one. There are no other modifications as of yet - I would love to have RS2 front and rear bumpers on it, and then upgrade the brakes, and a new sport grill, and a number of other bank-emptying things. But right now, it's fairly standard. What cheap and beneficial upgrades are out there?

Here's another pic:

But right now, it's fairly standard. What cheap and beneficial upgrades are out there?

Here's another pic:

Genuine front and rear RS2 bumpers (if you could find any) would set you back around $5000 at least, by the time you landed them in NZ.  Then you need to find Porsche 993 lights to suit - there's another $1000.  There is a damaged front bumper on german ebay right now for 750 Euro.

You might like to look at the Rieger front (a very close copy of the RS2 in abs) - I am about to bring one in myself direct from Germany, and it is going to end up costing around $1500 landed, without GST, lights, headlamp washers or painting.  That was with a very favourable freight charge.

http://www.bodykitsuk.com/en/products/audi/80/styling/b4-r-rs-rieger-front-bumper,-abs.html



Any brake upgrades worth doing will be at least $2500 using used calipers, best sourced from the USA. The current preferred path is porsche 996 4-pot brembo calipers mounted on machined brackets from the Seat Ibiza with 323mm A8 discs, but that would not quite fit unless you either used smaller discs, or changed to 17" wheels.

RS2 "little red" calipers are no longer considered as a value-for money upgrade, and the 996 monoblocs are supposedly more reliable.

Details, here: http://www.slybadger.com/cars/s2/brakedetail.htm





What are the modifications that you believe have been made to give the horsepower figure that you are quoting?  I'm afraid your story about run-out models having been worked on in some way at the factory is not a story that I have ever heard before, and I have lurked in all the S2 forums for many years.

Nice car ! :)

S2 Coupe manufacture ceased towards the end of 1995 in line with chassis number WAUzzz8BzTA001775.

registered NZ 1996?  Probably a MY1996 car, but unlikely to have been built in calendar year 1996 (Model years run from july to june)

I'll have a look at the Rieger front, the price seems pretty good  :)

I will find out a bit more about the HP details - the above story is the one I have been told by my father who had the car imported. I *think* it has effectively been chipped.

I've begun hunting around S2 sites and have been impressed on the extensive amount of information and the quality of the forums. I think it would be good if somebody was to start a wiki though...

Rieger closeup, here:

http://www.s2forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29985&highlight=rieger

and here:

http://www.s2forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23388&highlight=rieger

The guys on that forum do not seem to realise that Rieger make a separate "carrier bar" that is needed to mount the lights and the bumper, so they have been messing about making their own brackets.

The Rieger factory has no agent in NZ, so they will sell direct to us, and that works out a whole lot cheaper than buying from UK or Australian agents

There's been quite a few fibreglass copies over the years - I've never seen one in the flesh, but apparently they look and fit like crap
