just got my [a4] right now!!! [:D] well drove it home and well i found that the car isnt really pulling that hard..its stock BTW...but i can hear a slight..very slight...can only hear if you really listen..turbo hum...and theres ticking....oh and is the throttle travel really short? and is the clutch engagement point really high like its just at the top? oh and the brakes arent really that grabby unlike my previous 1.8NA b5 A4...and there seems to be some worn bearing sound on the engine although i dont know where it is.... theres also some brake sqweak and some sqweaking on the front right suspension....oh yeah...there doesnt seem to have any bass on the sound it only got midrange and highs...what do you think are the problems??

sorry...im just kinda pumped up and damn right excited...i havent eaten 2 meals already cause im so juiced up...hahahaha...i cant even get my questions right!!! and im finding myself grinning too damn much right now where i cant even talk straight!!!ahahhahaa [:D] [:D] [:D] [:D] and no...im not high...and im not drunk...

congrats man. just check on the timing belt and tensioner. make sure that was replaced before. if it wasnt, get it replaced ASAP!!!

well i dont think it needs replacing...yet...cause its still under 34K KMs ahaha thats low mileage there....any suggestions to what to check out on the car other than letting the dealer do the checks?

i think you should replace. although it is under 34K it is still 8 yrs old, as such it is safer to replace it. I know of a guy who has 34K on and ended up with a broken cam belt. just my two cents.

Congrats on the purchase and great choice for "Hisbiscus Red," which is soo underrated.

04-03-2006, 04:28 AM
ok then ill just get the timing belt replaced...not worth the risk of ending up with pistons and valves bent... anyway.....

if hibiscus red is so underrated....wait till you see samba brown...theres only like 3 of that color here while so many hibiscus red....and you know what...1 of the 3 samba brown audis here in the philippines originally belongs to me...my cousin bought it from me hehehehe.....

what should i look out for...as the car isnt really pulling that hard...i mean...it doesnt even put my head to the headrest when i floor it in 1st while coasting........

cuz its stock....

and a 150hp

u can go many routs tough...u can do K04 and software which should give you what? like 240hp or so guys? with a FMI and full exaust. u can just chip the k03 for a little more power or you can go BT and go 300 plus

id rather keep the engine stock..but if dad agrees with a ko4 kit...then it goes in heh...i'd want a stiffer ride i guess and i think im gonna go with RS6 rims..would it fit? for suspension im thinkin H&R/Bilstein combo...is that any good? plus an exhaust and DV...

i got a question...whats the difference between DV and Bypass Valve? or are they the same, also whats an N75J? i searched already so no need to remind hehe..
