  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.

  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. A8 4.2 louder exhaust?

    We got an Audi A8 4.2 2003 and I would like to make the exhaust just a little louder without changing the rear muffler. I recall that i've read an article/thread somewhere about the Phaeton 4.2 having a slightly different exhaust than the A8 making the exhaust note just a little more noticable.. Does someone know some more about this? Thanks in advance.
  13. 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...
  14. 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?
  15. Audi A8 Bulb changing

  16. RS4 V8 brakes on A8...

    I got a set of RS4 V8 brakes from an earlier project on the shelf here,will these fit the 2003 A8 4.2 ? I mean 1:1?
  17. Audi A8 Bulb changing

    I did this: You'll need a bridge or jack stands to get the cars front up. After jacking the car up remove the front wheels and remove the inner wheel well ,after that you can see the back side of the headlights and simply remove the lights etc etc.... I've also tried to change the lights from the enginebay but that was horrible...
