Hey fella - long time no hear - how goes it Sir!? Hope all is well with you and yours? Thanks for comments about the new steed and yes 190bhp out of the crate is pretty nuts - however, mine has got the exhaust and power commander 5 and is fully set up on the dyno with a graph showing 198 bhp!!!! The power is unreal and pulls like a train in every gear - first time on it i pulled a wheelie going from 5th to 6th at around 160mph and struggled to push the nose down, my mate said i was as white as a sheet when i came back in!! Cant wait to get her on track and really let her go
Sadly, i wrote the RS4 Avant off and went straight out and bought a Range Rover Vogue SE and then we got used to the size, comforts and practicality and once i got bored with that i swapped it for the Disco - have to say it blows the RR out of the water and i even prefer its aesthetics all round - perfect truck for the family and a lovely car on a journey - but i wont deny i dont miss a bit of oomph and excitement but i guess the S1000RR should make up for that in bucket loads!! Again, nice to hear from you and stay well
