    Hey All -

    Making a new thread. Just picked up a new 2018 B9 Allroad in the same color combo as my 2013 B8.5. Moonlight on chestnut. Hoping to take it slow with this one and not mess with it too much for a while. But i'll post any changes I make, pics, and things I learn and experiment on this platform as I go. Just crossed a whopping 80 miles. Sold my 2013 K04 B8.5 Allroad with nearly 137,000 perfect miles on it (bought it new in late 2012), and hope to enjoy the same kind of bomb-proofness with this one too. I still have my 2000 B5 S4. Old Allroad thread and B5 thread links below:

    Ordered up some B9 S4 style aluminum mirror caps and some front plate delete filler caps. Link for the caps:

    https://www.europaparts.com/front-pl...oler-grey.html

    Car is currently being paint corrected since dealer wash bays are absolute aids and my clearcoat looks worse than my 20 yr old S4s. Should look nice when its properly done. Once I get 500-750 miles on it I'll drain the factory fill oil and swap in some Motul 8100xcess 5-40 like I ran the entire life of my last AR. Might do Liqui Moly Leichtlauf 5-40 though since FCP Euro sells it and they warranty replace motor oil for free whenever you want....literally the LL Bean of car parts.

    Thanks man. I almost got b9 S4 like you but it would have meant my B5 should go. Couldn’t throw in the towel on it just yet

    Although the B9 styling hasn't grown on me yet they are very nice to drive. Excited to see where this one goes!

    I know what's going to happen.
    1. dealer re-road force balances
    2. They provide me the print out and it shows they let like 20 lbs go as acceptable
    3. I push back and they try again
    4. Doesn't fix it
    5. Dealer finally caves and warranty replaces 4 of the garbage Conti Pro contact TX that come on the car, with 4 more
    6. Still shakes
    7. Service manager contacts AoA
    8. AoA says fuck off
    9. Dealer provides credit of value of contis and I order 4 Michelins
    10. Doesnt shake any more


    The factory installed Conti Pro Contact TX are dog shit. The P7 pirellis that came from the factory on my B8.5 AR were actually pretty nice... but in the end there is only one solution: Michelin all the things. All of them
