The thing with this Audi is it has the "old school" look if you know what I mean.

Long time no post: end of year = 2010 budgets and target planning = not much time to have fun :-(

Always here to help anyone wanting to book their car in for a service and happy to oversee the booking to ensure great service levels.

Cheers

Darren, those are quite comforting words and I know you have helped resolve problems for people in the past.

Fantastic build quality, fantastically flexible engine, great steering, superb traction, awesome sound. You wont loose a lot of money even if you have it 2 yrs. The B5 RS4s low mileage good ones are still 20k and these things are 9 yrs old!!!!!

Only real problems on these are DRC (suspension) this has been recognised by AUDI who have extended the warranty on these items to 5 years so no real worry there, and in reality these things in good health with fresh oil dyno at 395bhp and not 414bhp. However if you feel the power is lacking (i dont and i came from a 525bhp M6) then a remap and zorst gets a good 430bhp.

My car is an 07 with 20k on the clock and its completely rattle free.

If i could change one thing about my car? id buy the estate version
No "Fank you and goodnight" with that?? j/k

The RS4 would be prohibitively expensive with regards to running costs for me, lovely car though and given the opportunity I wouldnt turn it down. Sadly situation dictates otherwise for the time being.

EDIT:

Having just seen those pictures though....droooooooooooool

Any of you guys based around the the east end of london, if so which dealers do you use?

Regarding the Battersea Stewards Road site, I take it that is a service only place (no sales etc)?

Cheers.
Yes mate the Battersea Stewarts road is service only...

I live in E11 and have only had one service for my car and that was at Sytner Chigwell and as mentioned earlier, I would strongly advise you dont go near them

Typical.

Decided to put some feelers out last night and none of the local dealers have anything on the books that fits the bill. Plenty of 25d and 30d about though. Seems the 35d owners are holding onto their motors!!
