    Switching from a S4 B9 petrol to a new S4 B9.5 diesel (or RSQ3 or A6) ...thoughts please

    So I have ordered a RSQ3, Vorsprung, Daytona. Daytona was the only grown up colour and lets me pretend that it is not a silly car. Delivery sometime in the future, who knows but probably May 2022. In the meantime I continue with the delightful S4.

    Rs3 8y or…?

    I am still running my B9 S4 (petrol) and loving it. I had to stay with Audi due to wanting to keep running the S4 and extending the lease. On order I have an RSQ3, just feels (to me) like more car than the non-Q. Will it drive as well, well no but I think it will make me smile.

    Switching from a S4 B9 petrol to a new S4 B9.5 diesel (or RSQ3 or A6) ...thoughts please

    The main reason I'd the significant price premium for the S5 over the S4, otherwise it would be high on my list. Why do they charge such a significant premium, at vorsprung level the kit is the same but the S5 is £4-6k more than the S5 advant. Sent from my SM-N986B using Tapatalk

    Switching from a S4 B9 petrol to a new S4 B9.5 diesel (or RSQ3 or A6) ...thoughts please

    Yup. The RSQ3 is right at the top of my budget and a RS4 tops that again so it is a no go. Also that is a Vorsprung spec RSQ3 against a low spec RS4.

    I hear you but with my millage it is a very, very expensive option. I would only want to run an RS4 with warranty so that means getting a new one, that means big money.

    72k miles in a S4 B9 and now about to order an S3 sedan

    Nice assumption but prices have gone up over 50% in 5 years. I think an RS is too hard-core and expensive for a high milage daily. Now looking at an S4 oiler. Sent from my SM-N986B using Tapatalk

    Switching from a S4 B9 petrol to a new S4 B9.5 diesel (or RSQ3 or A6) ...thoughts please

    Ok so I have never been so indecisive. I had settled on an S3 but have changed my mind. I do 15-17k per year, mainly motorway with a bit of London and weekly country roads to enjoy. The S4 has been brilliant over 4.5 years and 72k miles. I have to order another Audi as I have left this too late...

    72k and 4.5 years with my S4 B9, just about to order an S3

    Ok so have flipped again. I don't want a S3, just too small. Going to start a new thread.

    72k and 4.5 years with my S4 B9, just about to order an S3

    I hear you. I just think an RS is impossible for me to justify to do 15-20k miles per year. Also not sure how relaxing the RS3 is on the motorway? Saying all of that if I could have leased an RS4 at the prices 4 years ago I would be very tempted. Funnily enough I keep looking at the RSQ3, a...

    72k miles in a S4 B9 and now about to order an S3 sedan

    Haha. You are braver than me, I imagine the bills would be shocking for anything engine or drive-train related. No doubt I will miss this car and wish prices had not gone crazy and the S4 was still petrol. Still looking at build times I could have it another year yet

    72k miles in a S4 B9 and now about to order an S3 sedan

    After a great 4.5 years in my S4 (about 15k per year) it is time for a new car. Prices are so silly that my choices are limited and I need to stay with Audi to extend my current lease. After much deliberation I am going for an S3, Sedan. Mythos, Vorsprung, red calipers. I am really hoping all...

    72k and 4.5 years with my S4 B9, just about to order an S3

    I have loved this car and probably will get another 6 months before the new car is ready. I do about 15k per years and wanted a car that will be fun and luxurious. TBH I am gutted to see her go but I was not prepared to spend £25k on a 72k miles car (the settlement figure offered). The car...

    S4 paddles too small

    They look really nice (wheel needs to come off to fit though) but still think they should be a good bit bigger. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Replacement wiper blades

    Thanks. How do they wipe compared to the originals? Bosch were the oem supplier for my old BMW so I used them for years. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    10k miles in and want new wiper blades. Does anyone know what the originals are and if Bosch/Valeo are good options? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
