    Audi drive select essential?

    yes - I have H&R springs fitted to my S4 with ADS. It is the shocks themselves that are the difficulty if you want fully upgraded suspension.

    Would I be a fool to get a manual?

    The gearbox in my GTR is auto excellent - never gets in the way of a spirited drive as the paddles are super responsive. And then if I choose I can dawdle around and not think about it. I purposely bought a manual S4 “because I love a manual gearbox” and tbh really regret it!

    Have you ever driven a good auto - ie a proper dual clutch trans?

    Finally got round to fitting the coilpacks I bought ages ago, idle seems smoother and I am sure a little lower rpm as well, seems to pick up a bit quicker but that could well be placebo. Just need another track day now to see if the problem has gone away!

    Thinking about it I have a non facelift passenger side wing sat in my garage, if you are near Nottingham you are welcome to come and grab it for free

    RS4 B8 Launch

    In my GTR - not the same I know but I think most launch control is the same - foot hard on the brake, then foot to the floor on the gas. Let of the brake and hold on.

    Seems expensive to me, I think I paid £45 or so a side for facelift wings

    TBH when rebuilding my S4 I inadvertently bought a pattern part from a car that was being broken, fits just fine and you cannot tell it is different at all.

    Wings are pretty cheap, tbh I’d buy a decent set and get them painted

    Hibiscus Red TQS - New Car, New Project, cars been here before though.

    You can steam leather to shrink it, may be a bit safer than a heat gun - and helps to clean as well :)

    I got them from eBay, just make sure you get the right grade bolts and washer, 10.9 as a minimum iirc. I used autodoc for the discs, you need the a6 356mm ones.

    V-Power Ron reduction.

    I filled up the GTR yesterday - the pump was still showing 99 ron, wonder if it is just an isolated thing at that garage?

    I have read that the esso offering has less ethanol anyway so is better

    Failed remapping

    The primary change on a stage 1 map is the point at which the bypass valve opens, there is little at the low end that is different which is why I expect it looks "stock"
