Scott I am going to ask a dumb question but is your car a modded A4 or is it an S4
reason I ask is because I have never seen an S4 in gold. And I don't see the fog ligths in the bumper.

Can you say...GIAC: ECU & TIP chips

1. You may want to run a bottle of Auto-Rx cleaner through the engine as a sludge prevention measure.

2. Verify that the timing belt and tensioner has been changed!!!!! Our 98-99 1.8T’s have an under designed tensioner, which has led to premature catastrophic failures well before the recommended change interval.

You may already be aware of these issues due to your A4, but just in case…

Welcome to the CB5!

P.S. I do not mean to sound like I am crying wolf; just some hard learned advice.

Great idea about the Auto-RX, i actually need to do that to mine soon too.

Timing belt was done a couple thousand miles ago =)

And thanks
