    Hi Guys, I'm about to order an S4 and would like your opinions on the extras we've decided on. So far it looks like we'll go for the full Audi Driver Select pack (with the trick rear differential), Sat Nav with AMI, Phone prep. low (should be ok with my iPhone 3G?), S4 silk nappa sports seats with comfort pack (she and I have hugely different driving positions so the memory seats are a must), front and rear parking sensors (not saying who those are for ), hill-hold, B&O sound, cruise control and a few little bits and pieces like the tyre pressure monitors, storage pack etc. Do we need to specify that we might be carrying a roof rack? or will the car take bars as standard? In our mini, we needed to get roof rack mounts fitted before any bars would mount..... Now we just need to agree on colour, personally I wish I could replace the silly silver door mirrors with body-coloured ones but apparently not.... John PS I should say hi btw as this is my first post

    Hi John,
    Not sure if these are included in the S spec but for the SE I also added automatic folding wing mirrors, as the standard is still manual switching and is a real pain to remember.
    I also added the rear air bags but depends how often you have people in the back! The hill hold is a must and imo the cruise control is well worth the money as is the sat nav and AMI. Hope you also have the full light pack as excellent on dark nights, wish I had also gone for the comfort pack for the same reasons as you!!
    Sorry cant help with the roof bars but it does sound like you will get a lot of car for your money.
    Roger

    Are you getting the saloon or avant? It'll be easier to get bars for the avant, they'll just slide and lock onto the roof rails although I'm sure you can get a roof rack package for the saloon from Audi/Thule.

    As for the mirrors- you'll be able to change them if you don't like the silver ones, who said that you can't, the salesman? You will need to retrofit them with the body coloured ones which you can get from vagparts or even order from Audi Parts.

    Hi, it's the saloon andbyes it was the salesman who said I couldn't change the wing mirror covers. I might poke them again about it or just wait and see if I want to change them later on.

    Quite excited about it all as this will be a huge change from my mini cooper - and the S/RS Audis have always been a dream of mine.

    The wife said we could get one after watching ashes to ashes.

    Yes I know what you mean about the S4- my mate at work has a B7 S4- looks identical to mine apart from the wheels and the quad exhausts!

    The car is mental and sounds amazing- the B8 should be sweet too, with the lighter supercharged V6.

    Oh if you are deciding on colour- the sprint blue looks nice if they are still doing it in this colour.

    Well I think I've decided on spec, just can't agree with the wife about colour! (as usual). We'll probably go for Deep Sea Blue unless she likes the Sprint blue (or silver) As to spec, I've taken advantage of the fact I am paying in euros and added quite a few options (e.g. today the pound dropped so far I could add a couple of options and still get a cheaper price!)..... Full Drive Select (rear diff, steering and shocks) Black silk nappa sports seats B&O Sound system AMI Phone prep. low DVD Sat Nav. Comfort Pack Heated front seats Parking Plus TPM Storage Pack Hill Hold Cruise control High Beam assist Advanced key The downside is delivery will probably be in June John

    I asked the Mrs for Keeley Hawes after watching that........
    You have to get the Sprint Blue if they do it. We have a S5 and a S3 appear in the car park sometimes in that colour. Wow

    Do you know that the Audi in that program was actually the 1983 model? It was not available in Right hand drive in the UK in 1981 when the series was set....... this is the 83 model with different headlight amongst other things

    Audi Anorak Alert!

    Sprint Blue all the way- unique to the S/RS models unless you have a standard model and want to spend a lot of money on speccing your own colour.

    I didn't know that, although I am fairly certain the quattro in Ashes to Ashes is Left Hand Drive.
    I've the series on DVD, so I'll check
