Re: Panoramic Sunroof, rear section - is it meant to tilt up like the front?

I think the above post should say only the front section tilts, in fact i'd be confident the rear section is purely a fixed piece of glass as per most other cars.

Re: C8 RS6 - what do you think it will do to C7 prices?

As has been said above, the arrival of the C8 RS6 (although i doubt we'll see it this year given the S hasn't been announced yet) will see C7 values drop further as a good chunk of C7 RS6 drivers will want the C8 & with more C7's chopped in to satisfy the demand you'll see a market awash (retrospect...

Re: Is the C7 RS6 just too big?

Been driving my 2017 RS6 PE for 15 months now and 21k miles, mainly motorway, and love the style (Cete air module, spacers, black optics etc), its presence, the comfort when you just want to cruise home, the attention it receives... but I am starting to feel it's just too big to be a great fast roa...

Re: 98 in a 70

Does 'NW England' mean the Isle of Man.... :biggrin3: LOL, that made me chuckle :bigblink: Tend to have been very careful on the roads & o...

Re: 98 in a 70

As annoying as it is, i think i got caught on the M62 on Sunday 30th Sept. Stupid on my part as i saw the new cameras on the side of the gantry being a Smart Motorway & the gantry was set at 50mph, but the next one was set as 60mph & i usually set my ACC at 5mph above the gantry limit as this has al...

Re: Michelin Pilot Sport 4 vs 4S vs Cup 2 Shootout

Great spot & thanks for posting. Completed my first ever track day on Cup 2's yesterday (Donington) in the Golf R (all previous cars i'd tracked on MPSS) & the Cup 2's really are epic, however will require a little getting used to as the grip levels are so much higher than i expected so i'll need to...

Re: Recommendations for accomodation at Nurburgring

I've stayed here, it's where people say "you must" stay. http://www.am-tiergarten.de/en/sitemap yes, it's run by Sabine Schmidt's mum and is close to the ring. the rooms are fairly basic and there's not much action in evening. The steak is good though! I wonder if PhilT will ever allow the story of...

Re: C7 RS6's vs The Nurburgring

Cheers guys, I've been many times now in an E61 M5 and last year B8 RS4 so are aware of the basics on the track.. Cant wait.. Apologies, i thought your question was more generic rather than specific to the RS6. If you've hauled an M5 Touring round Nordschleife many times & a B8 RS4, then i doubt yo...

Re: C7 RS6's vs The Nurburgring

Afternoon all, I'm off to the ring in a few months and was wondering if anyone can share any experience on how well these cars handle the ring? I'm not after setting a lap record or anything, just appreciate any real world insight. You'll be fine in the RS6, if as you say you're not looking to set ...

Re: Gearbox went boom

Getting the feeling this will be a frustrating thread given the O/P's lack of response.

Shame really as it had all the makings of a Classic:)

Re: Which Michelin Pilots are you running?

PS4S is the replacement for the PSS. Is is meant to be better and it's cheaper too. This is defo the tyre I'd choose for the 20s. I think it's the other way round (thanks Michelin for making things even more confusing. Pretty sure the PS4's are a direct replacement for the PSS, but the PS4S replace...

Re: Litchfield remap.... stage 1... experience?knowledge?

Harrier You say car had been in and nothing flagged? It won’t unless you try and claim, or it may but service advisor won’t say anything until you try to claim believe me. Audi spend billions on development....I don’t believe for one minute that ANY tune can not be detected if they dig hard enough....
