    Webuyanycar.... surprising price?!?

    Looking at swapping out my B9 S4 and after a couple of low ball PX offers, I thought I’d try WBAC to see how low these were to negotiate a bit harder. WBAC came in far higher than expected. Even amending the assumptions re MOT and a car park knock on a door (which took £98 off) it’s a great...

    Car value... seems severe? B9 S4

    Has anyone a view on how the value of the B9 S4 is holding? I’m 21 months into a 48 month PCP, below agreed mileage, 3.1% finance, and my settlement figure is approx £7k more than trade price [emoji44] Approaching the half way mark in a PCP I always expected to be in the negative, but that...

    Dog travel options?

    We have a Labrador and are looking into options for how best to have him in the cars. We’ve got a 2018 Q5 and a 2018 S4 Avant, but buying a dog guard and divider for both cars seems excessive (£400ish), so had through of a crate that we could swap over as required - finding one that fits both...

    New 19” alloys

    So... I had an S4 ordered with 19” V spoke alloys, then for reasons I won’t bring up now, I had to cancel the order and take another at an alternate dealer which comes with the standard ‘10 v spoke’ alloys. They just don’t do it for me and so I plan to change. I’ve seen a few non-S cars and S...

    Tyres on 19” rim

    Hi I was starting my clear out ahead of my S4 arriving and my BMW 5 series winter wheels were top of the list. The alloys obviously won’t fit, however I thought the tyres might? They are 255/40/19... bigger diameter than standard 245-35/19 which means the speedometer will show marginally...
