So I’m planning on selling my 2011 S4 this upcoming November. I love it, but it’s got 94K, is due for new brakes soon, and I’m not planning on keeping it past 100K.
It’s always near my house. Despite faded paint, and being a discontinued model, it still has a laptop on the console, federal plates, and none of the Denver Police info is removed.
Winter set installed. Just found out I herniated my L4-L5 (and I’m in my f***ing 20's), and my ski season’s a bust, so no rack this year. Forgot how grippy Blizzaks are - makes it feel like it’s on rails.
I’ve owned 4 cars with manual transmissions, yet have avoided clutch replacements until now. I knew I needed to do it after a valet garage I park at for work refused to park it, due to how hard it was to shift. Of course, the one car I had to replace it on just so happened to be the most expensive to do so.
Sorry if I’m late to the game on this one...I saw the aftermath video before anything and thought it was possibly a riot.
I got a new job and I’ll be commuting a lot more. The S4 is great, but I’m worried about having a stick in traffic. I’m not ready to pull the trigger any time soon, but I came across this gem:
Had to get some transmission work done, and figured I’d get this done as well. Kinda pricy, but given how much time my hand is touching this thing, it was worth it.
Finally took the time to take a few pics of the new wheels/tires...last pic is what we’re coming from (my winter set).
- 19" Rotiform BLQ in machined silver
- Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 XL 245/35/19
- 10mm spacers on the front
- 17.5mm on the rear
and realized I need to lower it.
Not really in the market, but I love to see what new S4's hit eBay every now and then. My 2011 S4 is great, but I kinda want the updated 2013+ S4.
So I bought some Lamin-X gunsmoke (lightest) taillight tint this week...I’ve actually been pretty against this practice in the past - mostly because people with already dim taillights tend to make the one thing preventing them from being rear-ended harder to see.
I’ve seen this a decent amount now...
Since they’ve become pretty affordable, I wouldn’t mind getting a well kept, lower mileage Cayenne S.
So a few weeks back, my grandfather asked for my advice about a new car, and ended up leaving with a 2017 Hyundai Tucson.
A family relative just traded his XJ for one, and it just so happened to be a First Edition Model.
So my grandpa wants a new car...don’t ask me why - he is 84 years old, and drives about 15-20 miles per week.
I finally got my cursed S4 back from the body shop. All said and done, they could salvage the rear bumper, but repainted the quarter panel. In the end, I’m not too upset - this part of the car was previously repainted and my body shop did a better job.
