Halreet? Thought I'd get up a thread for my S4 as I never put one up for the last S4!

Most of you will know the car, as it was built by Mikey-s, then owned and additions made by Scoobydood and Dest.

It's now in my hands and so far I love it! I've also made a few changes since ownership that I'll explain a little further on. Firstly though, I'd like to show you my previous cars.

Jabba'd PD130 Golf:





Stock FASH B5 S4 (Previously owned by S4RWF on here):











Stage 2 Hybrid TDI bora (240bhp/380lb.ft):







Then a few classics,

Previous '84 80 quattro (rare as hens teeth!):







And my current '85 Coupe Quattro:





The track toy:







And finally the S4;



I have no more pictures as yet but I will update the thread as soon as I get some more.

The current spec (to my knowledge) is;

B5 AGB block
RS4 heads
Low comp head gaskets
RS4 heads
OEM K04's
RS4 manifolds, intake mani, TB, pipework, airbox, MAF, Injectors
BMC panel filter
Walbro pump
Mocal oil cooler
710n's
CX FMIC
Decat full XS power system with flexi's
Podi boost gauge
B5 RS4 stoppers
RS4 clutch
Hotchkiss Rear ARB with MRC brackets
Eibach Pro street S coilovers
eBay SS
ESP DTS
RS4 grille and bumper modified to suit
Black ring badges
B6 S4 wheels

Since I bought the car, I'ce removed the LCR splitter and raised the ride height by approx 20mm. I've also given it a thorugh clean inside out ready for a go over with the DA when the weather warms up.

I have also replaced the temp sender (already done but swapped out anyway) and then found the stat to be defective. I've now carefully replaced the stat and the coolant for fresh G12 and I've no more warming issues.

Future plans are full service on next interval with belts, rollers, tensioners & WP. I also need to replace all the exhaust clamps with mikalor / stainless items as the existing ones have all rotten through (not uncommon with XS power systems I believe).

Sorry for the pic heavy post, hope you like them!

Hoyle.

Cheers for the comments. I'll grab some more pics over the weekend although I'm sure most of you know what it looks like!

that S4 is one of the best in the country, and had two very caring owners. hopefully going by your previous cars she has landed another caring owner that will keep her in the same condition. enjoy and and keep us up to date of any mods you do

Quick update:

Since I bought the S4 from Mart, I felt that the B5 RS4 brakes didn't do much to slow me down when used hard. Last week when braking at a residential junction, the pedal dropped away by 3/4" and was accompanied with a metallic "clunk".

I drove carefully home with a rotational scraping noise knowing that a pad had failed.

I stripped the brakes down the next day to discover pad failure. One pad had crumbled away like cheshire cheese and was all over the caliper carrier and driveway, and the other side fell off the backing plate upon removal.

Left in the picture is the backing plate and pad material, the right pad is the backing plate that was left after the pad had crumbled:



The discs also looked "well used" and had lips on bith edges, so I had to make a decision on what to do with them.





After measuring the thickness I knew that it would be close to the min thickness if I skimmed, but thought I'd go for that option before buying new discs as we all know they're stupidly expensive!

I dropped the discs off at the machine shop on Saturday morning and picked them up 3 hours later;



Just about got away with the thickness, so these discs are good for now.

I then cleaned them both up and blew in the centre hubs with a quick coat of high temp silver paint to freshen them up:



And then fitted them up to the car with some new Pagid OE pads (T1135) from carparts4less.co.uk and cost 34!!





Done!

I've done around 110 miles since fitting and they are bedding in nicely, no odd noises, no wheel wobble or uneven braking - straight and true with a nice bite.

I'm a bit disappointed that the pads failed, not with the previous owner or whoever fitted them, but moreso with the manufacturer. They were advertised as "EBC", who I've only ever heard poor reviews about. These pads seemed to be yellowstuff from what I could tell and even if a car has been hardly used, pads should not just fall apart.

Hoyle.

Interesting!
I put up a thread a while ago regarding RS4 brake performance, and it was decided the pads were possibly on their way out. Clearly more than originally thought!  
Obviously it was a job I had in mind had I not sold it.
Personally Ive never been a fan of EBC stuff after buying two cars in the past that both had their front discs, and they both warped.

Yeah, I always felt they weren't up to hard braking like brakes on my previous cars.

I put it down to brittle old EBC pads - I'd never touch them again! I was lucky they went when i was slowing from around 25mph and not motorway speeds!

The next step now is to replace the fluid with some RBF600 as the fuild is looking dark. RBF is excellent stuff and I've used it at the 'ring and UK trackdays and never experienced any fade!

I was never happy with those brakes - as Dest (and Doug) know, but my budget did not allow for B7's at that time.

That said - there are a few on this forum happy with B5 RS brakes - so fingers crossed it was just the pads all along!?

I think mikey-s put the EBCs on originally?
