AUDI B7 RS4 AVANT 4.2 V8
Hello and welcome to the advert for my beautiful V8 Audi RS4 Avant.
I bought this car as I have a bucket list of relatively fast performance cars that I would like to own, all of which are from the late 80s to 2010. This Audi has been superb, I have used it on and off for 2 years and it has been a great addition to my collection, as the only estate car.
When I purchased it was a completely standard model, which had been maintained properly throughout its entire life, please see the service details below. The vehicle was owned by 2 different managers from IBM in Cambridge, who only took it to Audi for its servicing. When I purchased it, I had a mechanic from Hoffman’s of Henley go right over the car and tell me what needed to be replaced, so I could use it as my daily driver and not be concerned of break downs etc
The DRC was removed (leaking and beyond repair) and replaced with BC Coilovers, it was serviced and every single bush on the front end was replaced with Meyle HD. This work, although expensive, has transformed the handling of the car. The car was then given 8 new plugs, a map by Quantum Remaps, secondary DECAT (MOT friendly) and a performance panel filter. This freed up a fair amount of power and has made it drive really well, with a responsive throttle and clean pull to the redline. The gentleman I purchased the car from had the inlets fully cleaned out before he sold it (4k ago). He sent me pictures, which were staggering! All oils were changed, to include; gearbox, differentials, brake fluid, engine oil.
The car has been brilliant to own and it will definitely be missed. However, I have now started coming to the end of the bucket list and am moving into supercharged e92 territory.
ENGINE
This car is excellent. The engine is quiet, it doesn't burn or drop oil, it returns very good mpg on a run (30), yet it is hugely responsive when you want to get a shift on. The torque band is brilliant and it’ll pull hard in any gear. In my opinion it has not been abused at all and it show very little signs of wear or a hard life. The longest serving owner was a female driver, who used it to go back and forth to Paris from Cambridge.
TRANSMISSION
The gearbox is solid and tight, the gear change is smooth, but has the purposeful feel that is often felt with German engineering. The clutch is quite possibly the original, however the pedal is light and pulls from low down, it does not sit high either. There are no drones from the differentials, or the prop shafts and all of the bearings are good.
BRAKES
The pedal is firm, and it stops very quickly for a 1700kg car. Under heavy braking it pulls up straight and true, I have just put new pads on the front and the rears were done by Audi just before I got it. The discs are good and free from a huge lip or extensive wear.
SUSPENSION
The BC coilovers are fully adjustable. It is set up for fast road use making it comfortable, but able to cope on any fast A or B road. My commute to work is twisty B roads, and I do not believe that there are many estate cars that could keep pace with the Audi. The new bushes have made it incredibly responsive and direct – almost go-kart like. There are no knock, bumps or rattles at all. It is a quiet comfortable car.
TYRES AND WHEELS
All of the tyres are Continentals (a good sign of someone’s who spends the proper money). They all have 4mm with the exception of the rear O/S which has 6/7mm as I replaced it. All of the wheels were professionally refurbished by Planet Wheels at the beginning of the year and have only done 3-400miles since.
BODY/PAINTWORK /INTERIOR
Bodily the car is very good for its age. I had some work done at the local BMW dealership as I know the workshop manager. This included spraying the front and rear bumpers and the body kit that had been scuffed a bit over the years. The whole car was machine polished, so it has a really deep shine to it and looks really nice. It is free from dents, however there are two small ones on the boot lid that will come out with paint-less repair. The front seats are excellent, however there is a little wear in the rear seats where the previous owner put baby seats. It would repair easily enough, but it has never bothered me so I left it.
