    That's Plan B. Just I rarely get Plan A resolved as it is. Every RS car has it's quirks and two can fill your day. I do get to have a virtual holiday tracking parts around the US or across the world....

    I always have a laptop in the boot and the VCDS cable. Elsawin, the parts manual and VCDS along with the cable at least give you a fighting chance when there isn't an Audi or VW dealer within...

    Nice to see the progress. One question I hesitate to ask, but as you haven't mentioned it, what is the airbag status? You may have noticed the many posts about the Takata airbag situation and the...

    This is an enthusiasts Forum, not a factory workshop portal, so my "perhaps" comment is very much in line with what enthusiasts use. Most of the Indie guys that I know in the trade use VCDS, it is...

    I haven't used Odis so I'm in the dark on that. VCDS is said to be an industry standard so while there are certainly others with similar performance, I'd be surprised if there were any that were...

    VCDS is Ross-Tech. Good piece of kit. Personally I wouldn't call it expensive. R&D plus the upkeep of the website, manual and the fault code suggestions isn't cheap on it's own and invaluable for...

    Driver safety is a pretty long bow in itself, noting that you can register and drive a car that predates the air bag ADR without an issue in NSW. Non compliance with the ADR is the obvious trigger...

    Obviously AUDI are trying everything to get the cars off the road permanently. Yes, it is just a sale, but I do wonder at the approach. Luckily my A4 isn't one of those with the dodgy airbag but even...

    As far as I know, NO! A few custom wheels can be provided with the RS specific ET and by definition they are not replicas. The standard wheel came initially in "soft" and was replaced by "Hard" and...

    Welcome, I think the old adage that you're here for a good time, not a long time is appropriate in the circumstances. If you like the car and you're not fixated on any depreciation and loss, just do...

    What do you mean by "new", wheels that haven't been mentioned previously when looking for RS4 replacements or new RS4 wheels? The factory offset is +20 and that is the bit that makes the RS4 wheels...

    Come on Jesse, cough up with what is "suitable". You must have had the screws on your contacts list to have the holy grail appear before the next tram.

    Spot on. Water used to damp down is also an issue, or rather the humidity is. Get that wrong and the paint will bloom. As I said previously, nothing is impossible but only you can decide if the level...

    Dust. It'll be in the fabric, on the floor covering etc. You might filter the air but to get a similar result to a paint booth you'd need something like a carcoon which is very expensive for that...

    Big news, but I feel sure that whatever model RS6 you do get, you'll find it great for a cross country trip. Wife and I did the Canberra / Perth return last year in the RS4 and for two, that was the...

    Also, like us all, the 50% that didn't get their choice over the line are tarred with the same brush. A fine line indeed.

    My understanding is it is a replacement. The bag and the accelerant are "lifed" so they must be replaced.

    I haven't personally met anyone who has had the airbag service done. For most cars the service would more than equal the value of the car, especially if you have 6-8 airbags fitted. It is a...

    RS4, RS6 & A4. None need to have the battery registered digitally. Agree that if so, the OEM battery is a safe choice.
