Well, since my old S4 decided to dump all of the power steering oil on the ground recently, my faithful INDI discovered that the high pressure pipe from the pump had split and to remove it he had to remove the front driver side shock absorber plus one headlight, so deeply was the pipe buried and hidden from view!!

I purchased a replacement pipe plus some other bits he suggested, plus 3 litres of special Audi steering oil so I hope that this weekend he MAY get round to putting the poor old girl back together.......fingers crossed!!

Finally got round to doing the airbox mod and while I was in the engine bay doing a little fettling gave the a/c pipes a little autosol treatment. View attachment 178077
I was gonna say that my engine looks like a local dump yard compared to that 😂
And that can be OCD manifesting itself so I'd suggest being careful or else you might find yourself ironing and folding the clothes neatly one day:D

I got some S5 breaks finally. Collecting them next weekend, From Leeds too so a good day's mission.
I want to paint them before I install, I have them RS6 black alloys on the way so I was thinking a dark blue? black and blue seem to work for me here's a nice side shot of her. Any opinions welcome gents.

Rear diffuser went on today. Fit is a bit off, right side sticks 1/2" further back than the left. Plus the 3 under body tabs for the screws that mount to the spare wheel well not lining up. I might see if my local bodyshop can work their magic.

Need some bigger tails, stock looks tiny

Getting really tempted by a splitter for the front but part of me thinks the car looks better without one.

I'm in the same mind set. I think I can live without one (and the potential speed bump scrapes)
