Probably not relevant now but I owned this car for nearly 2yrs between 2015 and 2017.
I sold it for £15.2k with about 96k miles on it.
The interior colour grew on me, it was a deep 'merlot' rather than red, not seen that colour on any other Audi.
I de-coked the engine and got it stage1 tuned, replaced the leaking oil cooler, tinted the windows and changed the plate, thus the kzs.
It was running perfect when I sold it, no DRC issues at all.
I have full details of services, fixes, original plates and previous owners up to 2017.
This and an old 164 cloverleaf are the only cars I have ever regretted selling.

I ended up buying it , it's a nice car , very clean , needed.a.few.bits sorting inc the rear brakes , but it drives great and pulls very strong , I actually like the interior, bit different to everyone else's black , is there anything else you could tell me about it that I may not know about ( I have the folder for it , it's fairly comprehensive) cheers

Sorry, only just seen this, didn't get any notifications that anyone had replied. Not much else other than what I listed above.
It was underpowered when I bought it but immaculate so took a slight risk that I could de-coke and tune to get it back to where it should be.
PK Auto in Lincoln did the works, it was at 320bhp before they de-coked it and then they got it to 406bhp.
So that at the wheels, you could add a further 10-20% for a 4wd car to estimate the power at the crank...so that's why it pulls so well!
It also had a horrible Nokia charger I removed but could not fix the holes without them being noticeable so ended up replacing the entire centre console.
I put 4 new Michelin PS4's on it in at 93k miles - great tyres, has it still got them on?
And the oil cooler leak was a £1300 job done in March 2017 just before I sold it... in fact it was probably that outlay that triggered the worry about running costs and subsequent sale.
I think I got back to about the 3rd owner and 2011, not sure before then... I always felt that it was maybe a demo or showroom order as it so many options, not just the seats but who gets an RS4 and specifies rear blinds! Anyway, enjoy it and if you still have it in 20yrs time I'm sure you'll be quids in, that B7 is a classic in the making. thanks. kzs666@yahoo.co.uk

Hi, yes it still has the ps4's on it and they've still got life left , it's just rolled over 103k, it's still immaculate inside and out , it now has an android hu fitted , do you know anything about the exhaust work that was done to it , or if the manifold flaps were deleted when it had a carbon clean ?.cheers Mark

I never touched the exhaust as such, the sport button changed the sound of exhaust note and buffered up the seats. I read folk had plugged the vacuum system to keep the flaps open but I never did... wanted to keep it original in that regard and quite enjoyed the process of pressing the sport button and hear the engine note change. As far as I know, all the exhaust and manifold was factory when I had it, I doubt the fellow who bought it from me and who you bought it from did anything either. So if it was worked on at all, I reckon it would have been pre the person I bought from, so pre 2013. Which would be a little odd as all receipts were Audi main dealer... Thanks - kzs666@yahoo.co.uk
