    Deserted streets, despite the situation parking is hard to find where I am. It would be a welcome change.

    Good news the car is going well. Huge contrast to the toils of Hercules with the RS4.

    Back on topic. Removing the crankshaft bolt has probably more online videos than most and some of the methods are frightening. Happy to say that the bolt was removed with very little difficulty so...

    Yes, the RS4 ground clearance is a fraction too little to get into the property. Both do the long haul well and the RS6 is very laid back for trips. Ticks all my boxes.

    Nah, only just got back from a 3000 km road trip. Can hardly expect to be spending Easter having a break. Part of it was going to be in quarantine anyway having brushed the greater Brisbane area on...

    B5 RS4 engine upgrade

    About 10 years ago a member on here had an engine failure in his RS4. He opted to import an engine from the UK instead of repairing his to get back on the road as quickly as possible. The complete...

    I'm saying that I bought my VCDS cable in 2014 and it was a 3 VIN limit (for adaptions, not scans and that is the critical point) It was also available in 10 VIN and unlimited VIN at extra cost. I...

    As said, you should be OK with this. When they were new there was a 3 VIN limit on the cable (but only if you made an adaption adjustment) otherwise you could just auto scan an unlimited number of...

    Get the right one and it's a magic ride. Totally different from the RS4 but equally captivating. In the middle of a 3,000 km trip and it's been a breeze. 18 years old and still got enough to scare...

    Two issues. Your first post "I'm hearing a low level but clear grinding noise"

    You say you still have a grinding noise. That is more or less a metal to metal contact so any comments about normal...

    Basically anything and everything that is needed to be said has already been said in previous posts. It looks like a metal to metal contact across the entire face of the pad. Is it every rotor or...

    I'd be worried if someone machined the rotors and re-installed the old pads. There are a very few occasions where you might chance that and none of them include where there was a problem with the...

    Back to basics. Does the grinding noise only appear when the brakes are applied? If so then it should be a pad / rotor issue. You say the rotors were machined for free but you never confirmed if new...

    G'day Pete, working through the alphabet again. Saw an RS2 went for 70,000 pounds earlier this week in uk, so no chance of me buying one of those. Now we need a new thread and some pictures!
