Should be able to buy the pad sensor with wire and plug attached. Don't need new pads but take your wheel off and have a look first.

If its intermittent I'd say its the pad sensor, easy enough to get another. Could even be corroded contacts on the pad sensor wires.

By ‘new one’, so you mean new pad? Basically meaning I have to replace all 4 front pads again?

Hi all,

I'm selling a 2007 RS4 and have been astounded at how it has lost value. I'm currently staring down an offer for $24k which means I will have lost more than $4k a year for 3 years.

I'm not desparate to sell, and have been giving serious thought to putting the rego on hold and garaging it. I have real heartstrings attached to this car and it makes me angry on some intangible level that a car like this can be worth so little. Also, I have no confidence that it's not going to drop further.

Anyway, I'm not sure my rant helps the conversation at all (sorry!)... but I guess a) I'm selling one if you want a drive, and b) the market for these cars is less stable than I thought, at least.

I think I have seen it on trade me and did consider it but rs4's are not rated for towing according to the AA in NZ and therefore, no one produces tow bars for them.  This puts me off them and the S5 fits my requirements better.  I do like them though and shame it doesn't suit. I'm now tossing between s5 and ml63 but fuel consumption is better on s5 so will probably stick to that.

Changing back to a manual myself recently, the one thought in my mind as I drove it out of the showroom was, I must not stall this in front of these people watching my departure

after missing out on three yellow renaults, i finally got my hands on one.

2015 rs265 in liquid yellow
nz new, finance company repo, being sold through turners (big thanks to nik for the tip).
38,000km, recaros, 19in.

drove back last night through the huge storm - it had everything - wind, rain, lightning, thunder, hail, fog !
the car was a joy to drive despite being on a mix of original potenzas and no-name chinese tyres.

complete with all manuals etc. but with no record of ever being serviced !
booked in next week.

then will attend to a few cosmetic issues - dings, scuffs, scratches.

tinypic appears to have crapped out, no pix  :( 

alternative supplier to the rescue !

How come that in Europe manuals are still sold in large numbers?
Is it possibly a case of what is served up here..........take it or go without.
Another thought is texting and changing gear as well may be all too difficult
