  • My New B8 RS4!

    Hi all,

    The Saab has gone and I have been lucky enough to replace it with this wonderful Sepang Blue B8 RS4. (The dealer has taken the Saab in PX and loved it so much he is going to run it as his daily, which was a nice bit of Karma too!)

    It is something I have had my eye on for years and I am now finally able to afford to buy and run one.

    It has 3 previous owners, FASH and 35k miles on it.

    Headline Spec is as follows:

    Sports Plus DRC
    Bang and Olufsen
    19" Rotors
    Silver Nappa Leather

    It is in amazing condition and I am absolutely over the moon with it.

    P.S. The S2 is still here too...

    Any questions, let me know.

    Cheers

    Steve

    P.S. There are Geek points for anyone that spots a couple of subtle non OEM mods that were done by the previous owner...

              Yes! I loved the Saab for the journey I had been on upgrading and improving it, but this thing is on many levels above it. I have not driven anything new or Audi for a long time and was just not ready for how capable it is (and comfortable when in comfort mode) Amazing engineering!

                Very nice Steve! I love the B8 platform. Great size for a family car and practical too . I've thought about swapping my S4 for the RS4, but I just can't let mine go, especially after spending a fortune on getting the STronic fixed last year. Check the service record for the oil change on the mechatronics and get it done if it's not been done already. I hope you get more than the S4 returns on a run. I struggle to get more than 30mpg cruising, probably 12-15mpg around town. I can't see the subtle mods, spill the beans? LED footwell lights if they weren't standard. Perhaps a Milltek hiding under there? Rear diffuser changed??

                      No Miltek, it has the standard exhaust but with a pair of boxes removed to enhance the sound - which it does!

                      It has the aluminium styling pack, but the window surround and roofs rails have been wrapped gloss black (very well done actually)

                      Interior lighting pack too I think.

                        Thanks Steve, I have no idea on MPG yet, I have not finished a full tank yet. but suspect it will be 18 - 20mpg if I am lucky on general driving. It is not due gearbox fluids until 40k, but I am thinking of going over to see Doug at MRC soon for this to be done anyway along with another health check. It has already had a clean bill of health from Audi before I bought it.

                          Thanks, yes chufffed to bits, it is totally epic. Loud and hard in dynamic, soft and sublte in comfort. No Miltek, but a set of boxes removed...

                              Yes, love it. They're great cars. If the B8 is anything like the B7 you can look forward to 14-15 mpg if you're being silly or ~25 on a long trip
