    2011 B8 S4 here with 113k miles, went stage 2+ at 55k miles and I'm still on original clutch gripping strong. I have only had to replace the thermostat. Other than that she pulls just as hard and she did the day I got her from the first owner. I've got an exhaust rattle and a coolant leak that are getting fixed soon other than that she's my babe. Look forward to driving her everyday.

    2010 B8 about to roll into 123k miles. No major issues just a tstat around 104k.

    Wow, 104k on original tstat. That's a record I think. I've personally never heard of longer.

    Sorry that's a bit misleading what I should have said was that recently only thing replaced was a tstat. The original owner had the mech unit and tstat replaced at some point earlier as well. I bought it with about 100k on it.

    Highest miles for B8.5 owners?

    2013 6MT, at 59k miles (mostly highway), bought the car with about 10k miles. Stock tune. No major issues, just have make sure the clutch it fully pressed to the floor when starting. I'm hoping to keep the car until the CPO warranty is up. I'll probably reach 100k miles before Oct. 2018 though.

    The engines in both of my S4s (current B8.5 and prior B8, which I owned from 20k-55k miles) have been relatively problem free. I mainly switched to a B8.5 6MT to get away from potential mechatronic issues. I wonder if I would have ever encountered any if I were to keep it...

    This is great news.

    I am buying out my lease this Friday.

    2013 B8.5 w/ 36k as of now. Good to know that she'll be good to go for as long as I want to keep her!

    I agree with this. I'm also over 30k, below 35k, but I will probably sell it at 60k, and buy something cheap, with high revving engine, and a great manual transmission.

    Could we have this thread updated? It'd be good to do like an annual mileage update here.

    I'm not there yet, but 2013 S4 with 57k miles. No issues.

    25K on mine, 14' dsg sports diff, I just bought it a month ago, as far as I can tell rom service records nothing worth mentioning. I had to get the wiring harness for the back up camera replaced which was covered under warranty. Will update accordingly.

    hi guys, for those of you with high miles on a B8.5, are there any foreseeable issues? For example I see the thermostat issue plaguing all B8s, but is it the same for the B8.5 and should I plan on it failing on my B8.5 as well? Any other ones? I see back-up cam also having issues, but that doesn't seem like an expensive fix.

    Wife had only had hers a few weeks. 84k on a B8.5 (looks like the highest mileage B8.5 in the thread). We were only comfortable buying this car because:
    #1 - The price was right for a Prestige with the options she required (color, sport diff, full leather, DSG, etc.). She had more budgeted than what she spent, so a little maintenance isn't a big deal.

    #2 - The car had a pile of service records. Took me a couple hours to sort them, put them in a book and decipher into Excel so I had a quick/easy look at what has been done. The car was well cared for and in better condition than lesser mileage B8.5's we looked at.

    Only issue so far has been an adaptive headlight bulb burned out. $25 later for "upgraded" halogen bulbs plus $199 for a Vag-Com to clear the code.

    13 B8.5, 62K. Had following problems:

    1. Alternator failure (fixed in new car warranty)
    2. Sunroof rattle (fixed in new car warranty)
    3. B&O speaker blown (fixed in new car warranty)
    4. Engine rattle on cold start TSB (fixed in new car warranty)

    All above issues happened within the new car warranty (before 48K miles actually), the car has been problem free under CPO warranty (runs out this year of Nov).
    Good thing is the car seems very reliable, bad thing is looks like my CPO money are all wasted :)
    Planning to keep it until about 100K, was looking for a new one, but can't find any other car that better suits my need. I have XC90 to use on long trip at weekends, S5 is mostly for daily commute

    I've considered:

    1. W205 C63s (being in Seattle, this car might be slower than my S5 in most of the time due to lack of traction, and it's dangerous in rain)
    2. M3/4, same
    3. B9 S4/5 (Don't like the front end)

    Waiting and seeing what markets has to offer in next several years.

    There isn't that loud and abrasive chain rattle that I've heard on other people's cars on a cold start. I suspect the previous owner might have addressed that. I can only hope.

    60,100 miles on mine. Only done the following:

    1. Replaced bad injector at around 13,000 miles
    2. Replaced stuck thermostat
    3. Replaced water pump as a precautionary measure while they had it apart for the thermostat

    Other than that, 5,000 mile oil changes and that Audi recommended services, all DIY. It has easily been the most reliable car I've owned.

    Just bought my 2013 S4 a month ago with 96,000 on the OD. Iím now at 99,406. Just did the full maintenance service, all fluids flushed, oil changed, carbon removal and had it inspected. All is good so far. Took her on a trip from Northern AZ to Sacramento CA and back. She runs great. No leaks and plenty of power. So fun to drive in dynamic. Going to do the thermostat and water pump as preventative maintenance in February 2019.

    2014 6mt w/65k miles that I've owned since late 2014/10k miles. Slave cylinder failed at 4 1/2 years ~55k miles and leaked hydraulic fluid onto the clutch disc. Slave, clutch disc, and pressure plate all replaced under CPO warranty as a result :-)

    Thinking about going EPL stage 2 w/crank pulley only after CPO warranty is up.

    I'm around 90k on my 2013 but I did have a mechatronic issue around 80k but it was fixed with just a repair kit..cheap and easy fix. Might get test pipes here soon though when I go dp.
