    Adios B8, Hello B9...

    Well, after a fun 7 year ride with my B8 S4, I've moved on to a B9. I'm looking forward to having some fun with this one. No major plans other than removing the front plate, color matched side markers, adjustable lowering springs, and wheels for now.... It has pretty basic packages. Sport, Black Optics, and Leather.

    Congrats! Hopefully the new car doesn't feel too weak coming from that beastly B8.

    What else is there to do with a b9? Seems like S4's enthusiast pool dried up with this release.

    Eh, think it's still early days yet, you've barely been able to walk into a dealer and buy a B9 for a year. The B8 has been around for almost 7 years, and it took a while before the aftermarket was as prevalent as it is now.

    Even right meow, there's still a multitude of intakes, cat-backs, down-pipes, piggy backs, an intercooler, springs, and other suspension components available for the B9, and that's just the first year. George @ BMS has also already done some beta testing w/ the JB4 on a new hybrid turbo setup using the factory housing and an E85 blend and it looks like it will be enough to support that setup; that's easily good for ~450HP with the rest of those bits. Think there's still plenty to be excited about for the platform for its first year, whether or not the ECU is ever cracked.

    Nice car jran, classic color combo, still wish I was able to get BO.

    How has the transition from the b8 been so far? Have you gotten used to the lagginess?

    How do you like the B9 compared to the B8? Had a B8.5 before my current SQ5 and I'm hoping to switch to a B9.5 S4 when available.

    Sounds similar to the path that I'll be taking my S4 down as well.

    First mod was the plate delete, and I'm having ceramic compound brake pads (Power Stop Z16) installed next week as the brake dust is killing me after one week of ownership...
