My Noggy S4 saloon - Nemo

well, I didnt make a thread when I bought it and realised today I've had the car about a year after selling my S4 black saloon to a member on here I just was plain sad so picked up this noggy also from a member on here a few weeks later.

Its a y2k FL "W" reg. I'm the 3rd owner

I dont have any pictures right now:-(

Mods by previous owner:

Cream electric Recaro leather interior (RS4 style)
Bose sound system with 6 disc cd changer

MRC stage 1 remap
K&N air filter

KWV1 Coilover
H&R anti roll bars with MRC strengthening brackets
rear sub frame was replaced
034 density line front control arm complete kit
Complete rear bush replacement kit

Milltek dual cat back system (sounds awesome)
RS4 downpipes with gutted pre-cats

B7 RS4 front brakes
B6 S4 rear brakes

18 OZ Racing alloy wheels inc spare.
Goodyear F1 Assymetric2 tyres all round

Original RS4 brushed aluminium wing mirrors


Over the recent bank holiday I removed the bumpers and cleaned the hell out of everything that couldve/shouldve been bright noggy blue, pressure washed, clayed, waxed and polished. Engine bay tart-up, removed all little leaves and bits of twig that get into funky places.

Since I've owned it I've replaced:
Headlight bulbs (D2 iirc, 70 for two) old ones seemed dim and took a while to get to full brightness.
Sidelight bulbs (none were fitted when I got it)
Hooters (one was inoperational and sounded like a chipmunk)
One or two small bits of interior trim plastic to get it to 100% OEM (e.g. cover on ODB2 port, seatbelt holder clip - thanks to jimbo)
4 x Wheel centres (OZ racing)
Windscreen washer bottle+pump
Coolant bottle (thanks to noggymike for showing us all how ugly ours were, I got a complex and had to change to a new one)
Coolant cap
Coolant sensor on rear of engine block (G62 sensor)
Bonnet strut
Both boot struts
refurbished both keys into new housings (small minor thing that just makes a big difference)
New S4 logo noggy blue piping car mats
Front right ABS sensor and wiring loom
License plate LED's
Leather gear gaiter replaced

So, thats the full list for Nemo so far.

Still on the todo list:
Boost gauge fitting (got gauge and vent pod already)
rear window triangles need repainting

Problems:
Gearbox is a tiny bit notchy getting into 2nd when cold. Still contemplating whether this should be done now....or should be done when stg3 calls.
Suspension squeak (I believe this is the rear washer fitted wrong way round problem..will get to it when I get to it..)

I'll add some photos tomorrow.

Great  work so far ,  be good to see some pictures of your Noggy.
madmax2

its dirty-ish again though...winter is coming.


(previous owners picture)

for sale thread that got me interested enough to go view it

Also received a headlight washer pump today to fit over the festive period (preventative maintenance), as well as an oil filler cap (the revision with the pressure release part built into it, in case the breather ever blocks)

Next on the list would be new badges..and I'm torn between sourcing the original S4-type badge that this model has, or fitting the newer american style S 4 lettering badge (as on the newer model audi's). Also contemplating black audi rings front and rear, but confused about the different sizes. I should take a ruler and go check, that'll resolve that issue

I;ve also been sitting here over xmas break having a think...I'm starting a new job next year in central london so will have no daily need for a car at all. I think this one is going to Ben at TTU next year until it can spit fire.

They're starting to go up in price  now so a wise choice to keep it as a weekend  toy. Ko4s or rs6 turbos  ?
madmax2

I havent thought that far ahead yet.  Just monitoring forums and ebay and it does seem an awful lot of high power S4 conversions get broken/sold within a year of the conversion. So I do know I dont want to chase numbers..much rather have a happy drivable car. A friend of mine has a v8 Vantage Aston, and that feels fast as f*ck with 380hp. I'm not much slower except when I have to change gears:-) Quite frankly anything above 420hp and I'll call it a day, so tune for that with max torque.

My old car - really do miss it  

Really happy that you are looking after it and look forward to your updates  
Stigs dad

Ko4s  would be your best bet with a few other mods and a quality  low boost mapping you'd have around 420 to 430 bhp with total reliability.  That's what I'm  looking at for the end of next year.  Keep the updates coming with what you decide.
