James Woj’s Silver B8 Audi S4 Avant – Previously S400 MSHHi all,
Firstly thanks for looking at my thread, my previous car was my first Audi – an A3 8P 3.2 DSG in lava grey and now I have bought a silver B8 Audi S4 Avant, the previous registration number was S400 MSH and I believe the car might have been on the forums from searching the internet for photos. The plate has been retained as I have my own private plate EP 400 but the plate is going to my friend who has a silver B5 S4 Avant.
The car has had I think most of the modifications MRC do for the B8 S4 along with some other modifications including:
•MRC stage 2 Hardware and Remap upgrade
•MRC S-Tronic Gearbox Remap
•MRC Radiator / Pump / Reservoir Charge Cooler Upgrade
•Supersprint Cat back exhaust system
•Bilstein B16 PSS10 Coilovers
•H & R front and rear anti roll bars
•RS5 front brake upgrade with 8 pot caliper and 365mm discs
I must say a massive thanks to MRC who I had numerous e-mails and phone calls with and gave me all the information I needed to know about the car and very honest opinions as I was a bit of a pain in the a**. When my friend went there to get his S4 B8 fitted with the Stage 2 Kit they gave him copies of all the receipts missing the contact details of the owner which was fantastic and I can't thank them enough.
The exterior and interior of the car was standard when I got it apart from a few factory options and I have so far completed the following:
•Sprayed rear valance gloss black but retained the chrome centre piece
•Sprayed fog lamp surrounds gloss black
•Sprayed chrome surround on front grill gloss black
•LED front fog lamp bulbs to match the running lights
•LED front indicator bulbs
•LED rear number plate bulbs
•MRC badge under the engine bay
Future plans (hopefully), I would like to get the car to what I can OEM+ as if Audi could have made the car this way out the factory:
•Set of 19” wheels, maybe S5 and good quality tyres
•Gloss black whole front grill with chrome Audi rings
•Get the rear valance and fog lamp surrounds sprayed professionally gloss black at some point
Will get the car to Totally VAG (Exeter) and ADI (Castle Combe) this year so looking forward to them and maybe meet some members.
Hope you like the car, happy to have any comments or suggestions, maybe even the previous owner will see this!
