    That depends on the wheel. Our factory wheels use a 14x1.5x27mm ball seat bolt. But many aftermarket wheels use conical bolts. It depends on the wheel. And if you are using spacers you'll need longer bolts to compensate.

    I've had like two instances where the clutch seems to slip at high revs (5,000+). I can't seem to replicate it. Is this an early sign that the clutch is starting to wear out? Or something else. Just bought the car CPO from an Audi dealership - less than 1,000 miles on it since I've bought it.

    That year, and how many miles on the car?

    Most likely it's just the clutch delay valve. You can eliminate it with a stainless clutch line.

    2015 Audi S4. 30,0XX miles. Thanks for the quick response - I'll do some research on the clutch delay valve, but if you want to explain it that'd be helpful too

    It's unlikely to be the clutch at that mileage.

    The clutch delay valve (CDV) is a valve that purposely causes slip. It's there to help make the car "feel more luxurious." Translation: it's for people that don't know how to properly drive a 6MT.

    https://www.uspmotorsports.com/Audi-...and-A5-S5.html

    Not an expensive part at all. It's actually harder to remove the factory line than it is to install the aftermarket one. There's a DIY on the forum is you want to tackle the install yourself.

    Again - thanks for the helpful information. In my bit of research, it sounds like replacing the factory line could void the warranty (if the dealers catch it). Is that your impression as well? I'm hesitant to make any modifications that will void my CPO at this point.

    It would void the part of the warranty that covers the transmission. But that's only if they decide to manually void the warranty. You could find a mod friendly dealer for warranty work.
    But you're asking the wrong person. I tuned my car 24 hours after buying it brand new.

    is there a way to disable the RPM assist when you're stopped with clutch in and put the car in first gear ? hopefully through vagcom mods, or even better with carista.
    It brings the RPM's too high and I hate it, I look like I don't know how to drive standard when it does it. Plus it doesn't do it all the time, there are certain sequences of taking off that cancel it but haven't figured it out.

    edit: 2013 S4 if that makes a difference

    If the clutch is all the way to the floor it shouldn't do anything. It kicks in when you get close to the engagement point.
    And I've not seen any info about disabling it.

    yeah when it's pressed all the way in it doesn't do it. Sometimes though even when releasing the clutch it doesn't do it, and other times it does. I can play with the clutch at a stop light and all of a sudden it disables.
    But I'd like to disable it for good.

    I don't think it can be disabled. It's part of the rev-matching feature.

    doing my first oil change on the s4, going to use Liqui Moly, but which one do you guys prefer. I wanted to use their new molygen one, but it wont ship til nov 6.


    i was going to get the Synthoil one since that was their full synthetic, but wondering about the 'Leichtlauf' hightech oil since thats what ecs uses in their oil service kit.

    Also posted this in the VCDS thread, but I felt stupid for asking, so:

    Yesterday I was hooked into the car via VCDS to try to do the throttle valve adaptation which failed for some reason. I then did a possibly stupid thing and turned the engine on while VCDS was still hooked up. I don't know if this is actually bad, I've just never done it before. As soon as the car started, the idle was fluctuating, the engine/exhaust was sputtering, and the dashboard lit up with all the errors - TPMS, stability control, Sport Differential Fault, etc. I turned the car off, then turned it back to the On position without starting the engine. I ran the autoscan and it returned a bunch of fault codes. I was able to clear most of them, but there is one for the ABS system that keeps coming back. Whenever I go into the ABS control module in VCDS, the stability control system error alarm comes up on the dashboard. I have not noticed any driveability issues.

    After clearing all the codes I started the car up and took it for a drive, and all seemed normal (except for the laggy throttle response which was the reason for attempting to do the throttle valve adaptation in the first place). So I should say, everything felt the same as it did before I starting messing with anything. And after my test drive, I went back into VCDS and tried the throttle valve adaptation again and that time it appeared to complete successfully....didn't make a lick of difference in driving feel, but the software indicated that it completed.

    So my question - is it normal for all of those fault codes to occur when turning the engine on with VCDS already plugged in and running at that time?

    This is annoying, I agree. It jerks sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't. It is convenient when reversing though... don't need to give it gas unless it is a steep incline.

    When it starts snowing...is having an RS4 Grille a bad idea? I think the honeycomb design will allow snow/slush to get thru.

    Not sure what you're asking... The rs4 grille is more flimsy than the OE one but the snow shouldn't hurt it.

    It's German and wonderfully - snow in the engine bay makes no difference how it gets in there. But hey not yet - it's 80 degrees today 🏁🤔

    It should be fine. Only thing I'd maybe be slightly worried about is salt/chemicals on the road.

    As per everything else just wash that shit off.

    How trustworthy is the MMI oil level? The car was just serviced 2500 miles ago and according to the on-board system, it is a little less than half of the oil left. No evidence of leaks. I'm new to Audi so this is new to me.

    I wouldn't trust it. I'd get a dipstick and check it yourself.

    I am about 0.25 qts low and my MMI still shows full

    That display is equivalent to a liter fwiw.

    If it is halfway down you are low 0.5 ltrs.

    In theory.

    Has anyone put exhaust cutouts on they AWE touring before the rear mufflers to essentially have a track exhaust on demand?
    If so, I'd love to see your setup and if you have sound clips (should sound like the track version)?

    I currently have AWE Touring exhaust on DSG car and I like it a lot, but sometimes drone is killing me. I've seen that people said with resonated DPs it helps reduce drone or does it just becomes quiet?
    Do I need to have a tune with DPs?

    I know what you mean with the drone, I have the same issue. But it only concerns me when there are other people in the car trying to have a conversation. There are people that say there is no drone, but they must be tone deaf or something. You do not need a tune for the DPs.
