Hello everyone :)

I am taking delivery of my B6 S4 in the morning, and I'm filling my brain with as much Audiknowledge as possible.

I have a long history (circa 1997) with my toys and every so often I add a couple of cylinders.

Just a brief history (yes i talk a ton in person too)

'88 Accord - 35000 watt soundQ+ car
92 Accord - Later became the first ever H22A swap into a CB (with 5mt conversion)
'01 Civic Hybrid - don't ask...ok ok...monthly commute of over 4500 miles and a car allowance made it a free car
'07 Civic Hybrid - Fool me once...shame on...ah crap...
'05 Infiniti G35 Coupe 6MT (Black) - pic below
'03 Infiniti FX35 - wife basically took over on day 2 lol
'05 Infiniti G35x - pic below
'06 Infiniti G35 Coupe (Blue) - what can I say, I loved them - pic below
now:
'04 Audi S4 - pic below!

Thanks for humoring me on my first post :)

Thanks for the welcome, I was exploring manual transmission sedan options so my family could cruise with me again (the coupes were tough for that logistical ask) and a friend of mine had this car waiting. After a test drive I was on board and it checks a lot of good boxes (AWD, 6mt, sedan 300ish hp) for us. So here we are :)

I should say I've also spent 8 years in the Infiniti circles and needed a change ...i still tune them and moderate the forum but I love the challenge of learning a new platform.

So after a combined two day total of 4hours and 135 miles my power steering reservoir was dry (with expected whine for such a condition) dealer ordered up an own replacement hose and it should be sorted next week :) at no cost to me...good folks.

Previous owner had a "custom" 3" cat back exhaust put on, and for a pull into i25 from castle rock the sound was simply intoxicating :) starting to really like this car :)

^^Thank ya :)

she's been all buttoned up for two weeks now, even had a chance to head up my "relax route" Morrison to Evergreen :)

Did notice today the exhaust is a "complete" dual ....no cross over section, I may have to get a nice X-pipe to smooth the flow :D

Welcome! I've got a 05 G35x as the DD/GF car. They're great, I can see why you've owned a few of them.
