So I'm considering selling my Mrc tuned s4 saloon running approx 480 bhp.
VERY HIGH SPEC
The active rear diff pinion bearing has failed (not definate as still on car and it sounds nasty... really nasty.
Im truly gutted the car has broke and I can't afford to get a new rear diff.
(tbh I couldnt afford the car when I bought it but I couldnt help myself.)
I bought the car from forum member about 5 months ago and I'm the 3rd owner.
So....
2010
59950miles
FASH all stamped up
Flappy paddle
Audi drive select with sports diff
Sports heated seats
Sat nav
Dab radio
Full parking assist on screen front and back
Mrc stage 2 package
Milltek cat back system ( I have milltek silencer delete pipe in shed but that's crazy loud)
Keyless entry
Bang and Olufson speakers
On board hard drive with sd card and I pod connection
Probably missed loads out....

Bodywork is immaculate
Wheels are immaculate
Interior is like it's never been sat in

I don't know what do do with the car but I payed 16k for it not long ago and think I want out. Maybe px for fully restored S4 b5.

We buy any car or car auction in Leeds are my last resorts as the problem won't be spotted unless driven and they probably won't. I should get somewhere between 11k and 12k if I take that option. I'm keeping my eye out on ebay for a rear diff but not holding my breath.
Also spoke to plenty of people at audi and they won't help as its 7 years old.
Picures will follow soon

WBAC it and get shot of it mate.  The more you post on forums, the more chance it will get spotted.  Put a stock exhaust on it and sell the Milltek.  Likewise, if it has 19s on, bolt on 18s and sell the bigger wheels

What a shame it looks a beautiful motor.

But I'd agree with the previous advice.

Try and cut your losses.

That looks the right unit to me - think it should have a code of 35/9 somewhere on the unit, and that would need to match the code on your diff to be sure.

Yea that's a part number match to my diff. I can check the code soon.
Has anyone dealt with that supplier before?

Use google translate - it works fairly well.

I managed to discuss and book the reconditioning of the cats on my S8 with a German company just using Google translate  

Shipping might be a challenge to arrange, but they ought to be able to arrange for fairly sensible rates - it's not exactly a huge item and German breakers are usually quite happy to ship to the UK

Fingers crossed the gear ratio code is matching. It states in   the advert that it's the same as 3.0tdI a4 so that broadens my seach if they do match.
Cheers.

Ok so they say the code is a match. 😀😀😀
I can't believe I didn't find this myself, thanks for the help.
I'm going to order the diff on Monday and then go from there.
I may still sell the car once fixed or px for a b5 s4 and cash my way. I will keep you all updated.
Fingers crossed this sorts my problem.
