    The quality and quantity of the work can vary depending on who you choose too. There aren't that many mechanics that have broad support and reputation from the Audi community so if you find one of...

    Not that it is relevant at the moment but there are a couple of RS4 in Canberra (some think it is a suburb of Sydney) and it may well come to pass that some sort of meet / drive would be in order...

    Recent B5 A4 quattro owners

    This is a quaestion specifically for those new owners of a B5 quattro. I've had mine 21 years now and am well removed from the current market situation. What I'm looking at is the price range people...

    I'm not into auctions but my friend is and during this last 18 months they have soared. The good stuff gets put up with amazing reserves. Whereas a private buyer somehow seems to feel obliged to...

    My RS6 has a lot in common with the B7 RS4, so my experiences are:

    Under $3000 for a new seat base is good value in my books, I'd take it if the rest of the car is as good as you say. Damn lucky...

    Maybe I'm missing it in looking, but where are you? A recommendation for the other side of the country won't help you much. Just a personal view but for one seat I'd be inclinded to try Audi. I don't...

    Absolutely, you might improve your chances by including the non RS sources of that base engine. I've never looked at this specific swap so my comments are generic. If you obtained a full B7 RS engine...

    Not to confuse the issue, there is the V8 with the timing belt (RS6 and early V8) and the V8 with the timing chain (B7 RS4 and allroad etc). I have seen something on video about the timing chain but...

    You would be in line for a lottery ticket to find a recently repaired motor that is now up for sale. Happens I guess but a super long call. As for a motor replacement, it would need to be compatible...

    18 months in and I can say that the RS6 has been a dream to own. Before putting it in the road I spent a few months sorting out the suspension and finding and fixing all the little things that had...

    No offence meant but this is a whitegood question. No different to a fridge or washer. So, a 10 year old base vehicle (by that not collectable or any other special value) and it has some normal wear...

    Different brands, sometimes different outcomes. I replaced my front diff mount with a poly bush and the only change was noise. The gearbox shift system has it's own issues. I have a Tanoga short...

    Good. Plenty to learn along the way as like them all, Audi does some things differently. Way back I had a 4wd laser (more accurately the japanese familia in a laser body) which was way under rated.
