Very happy RS4 Owner

Post by Thanharossi » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:25 am

:bigwave: hi everyone. Owning a B7 RS4 has been a long time goal of mine since first seeing the review on top gear. And i am so proud that this weekend i bought one. Absolutely amazing car. It has that sticky clutch issue where heavy acceleration causes it to not come all the way up. I have been reading and it seems to be clutch related. But the last clutch was replaced 5 years ago and that didnt fix the issue the last owner said. I will have to do my own research but other then that the car is lovely. Wanted to say hi and so glad to be a RS owner

Welcome mate. Rule 1 :thumb:

Speak to Robnic on here and he’ll sort you out with the uprated clutch hose and dependant on where you in the country, he could do the work as runs a well established garage.

Also just made the jump after wanting one for 10+ years but only being 16 at the time of offering. Unfortunately mine (88k) and a hard life has the same issue you described for 50 miles on the drive home followed by total failure. Have been following another clutch thread on here sourcing parts and has been great for controlling costs on the rebuild.
