    well, it'll be an absolute bargain...and more practical...than a Porsche Sport Turismo. But the real competitor is the Mercedes E63 wagon. It'll be interesting to see how the two compare pricewise.

    I've watched a couple videos reviewing it. It looks pretty impressive. God help us if they only sell it as a sedan, which would personally kill any interested for me.

    I've put it on my radar, but...

    seems silly but how are your spark plugs? I recently had a misfire (although not everywhere like yours) and new plugs completely solved it. I have no idea why - the old plugs didn't show any unusual...

    <sigh> wish I'd know that. no price difference between redstuff and yellowstuff; I was swayed by the promise of reduced brake dust!

    yep, and I finally realized you insert the plug into the clip sideways, then rotate it. not knowing that ended up taking me longer than the entire pad replacement.

    From what I understand, the...

    I sure am curious about pricing - the RS6 Avant is pushing $160,000 or thereabouts in European markets.

    back from the dead - I'm super keen on getting non-drilled rotors. I just don't get it, and I'm unconcerned with appearance. Most of all, I hate how the holes nearly instantly clog with dust...which...

    popping the retaining pins was a piece of cake. getting the outer pads, also easy - just a tap from under, and the pads come flying out the top. compressing the pistons - easy. Only thing you need to...

    well that video was extremely informative! And now I can clearly visualize what's wrong with my car, which vibrates in the left front only under acceleration. It's those triple disc thingies in the...

    Are they still $200 or thereabouts? My perception is that price generally isn't an indicator of quality. I've been stuck with a crap front left axle that was rebuilt and installed by the last...

    as much as I love my petrol cars, I'm not blind to the fact that these are the future. electric cars (and motorcycles - I've ridden the prototype Harley-Davidson Livewire) not only make all their...

    I've budgeted out my wheel upgrades over a couple of months; I'd eventually want 275s all round. But who knows, maybe 275 front/255 rear would really liven up the handling? I'll report back when I've...
  15. how about this idea...staggered wheels, but BACKWARDS?

    running wider tires in the rear than in the front is, on our cars, a recipe for exacerbating understeer. which, for an Audi, is like throwing gasoline on a fire. we drive what is really a 911, but...

    I had no idea until recently that European market RS6s had a TPMS system. The control unit and sensors are readily available - what else would be required? This is assuming one of the unused plugs on...

    I definitely want to do 275, probably not even push it to 285. But 295/30R19 is spot on exactly what a 255/40R18 is. Due to financial constraints foreseen in the 1st and 2nd quarter 2019 and expected...

    I suffered catastrophic wheel damage and needed to get replacements quick. I found a very cheap solution with OEM Audi wheels - A5 wheels. 18x8.5, ET29. That's 1mm difference in offset! They won't be...

    well crap, now I'm going to have to have a look at my driveshaft bearing!

    that's good to know. going in from the bottom with the caliper removed is how I have to change the pads on my Brembos on my bikes. There's a fair bit of fiddling but nothing difficult with the...
  21. WTB - one RS6 wheel (USDM 18x8.5 ET30)

    I ran over a bolt today that not only went through my new Pirelli tire, but also punched a hole in my wheel. fml.

    Anyways, need an OEM RS6 wheel - if any of y'all have one lying around. I don't...
  22. some brake questions - ceramic rotors? pad replacement?

    forgive my ignorance as I've just started doing my own work on my car (I've worked on my bikes myself for years). I'm about to do my brake pads and if I understand correctly, I just need to pop out...
  23. front swaybar nut, oil drain plug, oil filter...torque settings?

    so I did the oil on my car for the first time. being an idiot, I didn't do any research here before diving in, because, how hard can it be? I found I had to undo the front swaybar to get the filter...

    I'd do a trailer hitch if I could mount my motorcycle rack on it, but it requires a hitch rated for 7500lbs (total weight of hitch mounted rack and bike is a little over 500lbs, but as my bike is...
  25. Kumho PS91 - excellent yet total crap

    in short:

    - these tires really kept the front end planted and I swear up and down that they dramatically reduced understeer.
    - they lasted 8000 miles before I found I'd worn them down to the...
