Why did i think this was Blue?

Looks rather "stealthy" with the black wheels.

Yep it's the family car so used all the time.
It had a new engine fitted under warranty around 20 thousand miles ago which was a wee bonus.
I loved the Evo's for the initial oomph but when up to speed this thing will easily out perform them. It has had a stage two remap but other than the exhaust and badges it is standard for now ;)
I just changed the pads out for DS2500's and what a difference in braking, 8 pads for the front alone!

I traded the R32 in for an S4, there was a few issues with it so returned to the trader after a little less than 3 weeks, came home and bought the RS4. Sold the 205 as well so we were actually without a car for a fortnight for the first time ever!

Planning maybe a wee Civic type R for the other half to knock about in and still have hopes to have a Westfield or similar sometime soon, few jobs to do around the house and garden before that though

That's some carbon on the way, I have ordered a DTM style splitter and some centres for the wheels.
Not sure whether to change out the badges including the RS4 ones, I quite like the silver contrast but carbon would give it the full stealth mode, what do you reckon?

It's heading in to Audi today to get the fan control ECU changed, other than that everything is working as it should, can't wait to get back and put a few miles on it!

A wee update, when the car went in to Audi they found a faulty parking sensor, it needed a new switch for the windows and the fan control ECU as mentioned above.
Thankfully it was all covered by warranty as it came in at a little over £3100 for the work! I have a £250 excess and they gave us a courtesy car whilst it was in.
I have a 16" long plate for the front but it wouldn't look right with a gap either side so carbon one is getting made up with the correct size of recess.

Can't wait to get back for a blast out

Got the splitter and wheel centres fitted.
Cracking deal from Argon Creative, great quality stuff
A couple of pics, not sure how to resize them on the phone!

Got the new brakes fitted at the front of the Audi, all good and now run in, during the bedding in I noticed a knocking noise from the NSF, within 20 minutes the OSR was giving it a bit of a rattle.
Up on the ramps and the well known DRC issue has finally surfaced with a soaking wet shocker, new KW variant 3's are on route.
Has anyone blanked off their DRC pipe work and what was needed to do it when changing to coil overs, also a little bit lost with what settings to go for on the new suspension, the rebound and compression rates can be individually adjusted along with the ride height. Driven mainly on the roads in the Highlands if that helps

Do they have a "MAXIMUM ATTACK" setting to suit your style? :P

;) Kind of glad it went before Knockhill, how stiff should they be for the track?

As stiff as you dare get them in track, how easy are they to adjust once you get back home? A lot of cars are a bugger to adjust so people compromise and set up between road and track and just leave them.

The compression has to be adjusted from the top of both struts and you can't access either without removing them, the rebound you can access easily enough with the wheel off as can the height.
I took this pic before raising it around 20mm or so at the front, the back is pretty much Ok.

I had it out for a wee blast and the difference is superb, nowhere near as crashy, and a lot more predictible
