  1. Hi Guys I have some troubles getting my RNS-E to work properly in my RS4 B5, i was kinda hoping you could help me out here... I know this has been done a lot of times with some slight things that don't work 100% like the "clock issue" but my retrofit doesn't seem to work ok at all. I got the plug and play harness from ebay and bridged the can signals @ the TMC box under the dash,so far so good. Next thing i did was coding the RNS-E expecting it to work ok, but no luck. The RNS-E doesn't start up but I hear it trying to,now when i remove the plug which contains the can signals and I press the on-off swich it start up without asking for a code with a very faint sound from the front left speaker,after it has started up and I reconnect the can signal plug it seems to work ok. If i switch on the lights of the car , the lights of the RNS-E do not light up. Also the RNS-E doesnt react to the ignition on of off... Does anybody recognise these "symptoms" ? I would really like to get it to work properly. TIA for the input.

  4. What age range are A8/S8 drivers ? post up

    Got an S8 V10...age 38... My dad just bought an S8 V10 he's 64... :-)
  5. Very very dissapointing....the difference between the 4E model S and normal A8 was far more noticable...the FL S8 V10 is one of the best looking cars of the Audi range for me.
  6. S line fender A6 2005

  8. Audi S8/A8 D2 supercharger!!!!!

    Isnt 0.9 bar a bit steep for a standard engine? Or are you planning to lower the CR? FWIW my R32 is running 0.8 boost with a CR of 9:1.
  9. Why never to sell a Mk IV R32

    R32T here.....
  10. Audi S8/A8 D2 supercharger!!!!!

    WOW man....I'm not in any way connected to Motodyne.....
  11. Audi S8/A8 D2 supercharger!!!!!

    Maybe an SC for the A8 D3 4.2 is a better idea....or does it fit both engines?
  12. New TV Required

    I'm not a real tech guy but from what I understand this TV's got a PC onboard to recalculate the image from 16:9 to 21:9. Powerfull MOTHA this...
  13. New TV Required

    I'm currently looking into buying the 56inch Philips 21:9 Cinema LCD... Haven't really seen such a promising fact sheet from another LCD tV in this size. Any opinions about this one?
  14. Audi A8 Bulb changing

    I'm afraid so.......all in all when using a bridge it doesn't have to take too long...about a half an hour a side...
