    Get the mechatronics fluid and both filters changed well before their due date mate. I think it's 37K interval from memory. Audi only change one filter, but it's recommended to do both during the change. My box was faultless until it had it's second oil change at Audi and it started playing up within a few weeks after.

    If the MMI hasn't been updated with the latest maps you can get them from eBay for about £80 and they're genuine Audi SD cards. Also, if you don't already have VAG Com I would take a look at OBDeleven, great bit of kit for the price. Invaluable if you want to check codes, make any changes to the config of the car electrics or change the rear brake pads yourself. I wish I had the V8 soundtrack, but the supercharger on the V6 likes a bit of tuning

    Nice colour on your motor and the arches look lovely with it. The S4 looks weedy in comparison

          Awesome, congrats on that one mean ride.....and the colour is fantastic
          Nice platform - I'm enjoying my B8.5 S4 Avant - wish it had the V8 soundtrack and the hips of the RS4, but at my altitude N/A motor would struggle a bit.
          Enjoy!!!

            Yes, it is a dream come true. Only downside so far is 15mpg on local trips....

              Thanks, I also adore the muscular look of this generation RS4. Half my enjoyment will be washing and waxing it regularly....

                Thanks Steve, I have it booked in for ALL the drivetrain fluids and filters at MRC next month. I will check out ODBeleven too thanks, I quite fancy a little fiddle around inside. Yes, absolutely love the box arches....

                Cheers

                    That is really really nice Steve, can imagine you are over the moon! The Sepang is a great colour too and a v8 sound track. Going to be harder to decide which keys to pick up now
