    Performance non oiled filter

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a non oiled performance filter. Been running a BMC filter for a while but the washing and jeopardy of reoiling is getting to me. Anyone found a non oiled solution or should I just bung back in an original audi job? Cheers Ben

    Lowering cars with matrix lights

    Hypothetical question that some of you might have experience of- if I lower the s4 using mss springs and adjust to give a lower ride height or slightly nose down stance - do the matrix led lights and camera that controls them need recalibrating or are the clever enough to sort themselves out ?

Now I’ve read a few things about corrosion on contacts and some more about degraded heating elements! I’d like to check those so does anyone have a how to or guide to b9 wing glass removal...

    B9 tuning options

    I’m going to get the s4 tuned in the near future and I’ve been looking for reliable tuning options, but I suppose I’ve always thought that APR might be the best option however I’m a little confused by their info - there seems to be the suggestion on their website that the basic stage 1 gains...

    Has anyone got a good close up pic of an s4 with the front bumper removed?

    In a continued quest to discover the problem with my A/C It’s been identified that the uv dye is emanating from the bottom right of the condenser. I haven’t had a chance to take off the bumper but I’d like to see what’s in the lower right corner of the condenser- the dye seems to come from...

    Has anyone replaced their own AC condenser?

    So having recently added UV dye to the system I can see that there is staining on the lower right of the AC condenser (as you look at the car) hoping it’s just a hose seal (as firebits suggested) but I fear it’s the condenser! Has anyone done a DIY replacement? Has anyone used a non Audi...

    Exhaust options S4

    So I’m after an exhaust for the S4 It’s not about power , just sound ! I’m not really convicted by the audio clips of S4 Milltek systems I’ve heard on you tube etc. Yeah I know that the most of the Audio clips don’t do an exhausts justice - they all sound a bit muted and understated to me. My...

    Water getting in !

    Okay - I’m foxed by this, I seem to have wet sound damping material in the back of an avant! It’s not in the boot itself but in the left hand side compartment where, rather worryingly, a pile of fuses and cables live ! My initial thought was that it’s come in through the baffle that’s in there...

    Wash windscreen only

    So, I’m confused, is there a way to only wash the windscreen and not have the headlight washers do their thing? Sometimes the headlight washers squirt and sometimes not - I’m not sure if it’s my pulling of the stalk that makes a difference or not - can someone shed some light on it! I should...

    B9 S4 avant Anti-roll bar

    So, does anyone have any recommendations for an uprated s4 avant anti roll bar ? See that 034motorsport does one which seems to be well regarded but it seems to suggest it was developed on a saloon s4 but suggests it fits the b9 allroad. Can saloon and avant ARBs be the same ???

    B9 s4 air con regas?

    strangely last week there was a slight hissing noise intermittently from behind the dash - it sort of sounded like aircon or seat bolster pneumatic pump.... it didn’t bother me! Anyway a week on and I decided to use turn the air con to cold ( it was sunny today in Cardiff) . I should say that...

    S4 uprated lowering springs

    so, despite my adaptive suspension, my S4 still feels too wallowy and soft ( perhaps it’s after coming from a very firm Bilstein equipped Subaru ). Anyway I’d like a little more firmness and am thinking about some lowering springs! I don't want to slam the car or anything, but I wouldn’t mind...

    Anyone put a light bar on their b9 yet ?

    Seriously considering adding a light bar to the S4 for a more illumination and because I quite like the utility sports wagon type look! So has anyone done anything yet - I’m unsure yet if it’ll be roof rack mounted, number plate mounted or stealth mounted behind the grill...

    Problem with the programmable steering wheel button

    So I’m sure I’ve seen this issue mentioned somewhere before but I’m not sure what the resolution was! So I have the star button set to select drive select modes in the S4. This button works intermittently! Yesterday I took the car into Audi to look at the problem but of course the button...
