Congrats!!

Right hand drive too!

Do you live in North America? If so, I would love to know how difficult it was to import this. I think I would like an Avant next time around!

No this one made a journey down under. A rare S4 Avant for Sydney's roads.

Damn...that is gorgeous in Sepang! Wish we could order the Avants in the U.S. More pics please when you have a chance.

Absolutely stunning and I am totally jealous. If they had Avant's available here that's pretty much exactly what I would have ordered. Love the color and love the wheels, really really beautiful. Congrats!

Very nice, are those Hartmann reps? Sorry, I stand corrected, I assume they are OEM by the year of the car. Saw "Ti look" in your sig.

They are just the stock rims. And, ironically, when driving home from dealer's on Thursday night after receiving delivery (all of about 5 miles), on goes the tyre pressure warning. Lo and behold, a 6mm hex head screw is lodged right in the middle of the tread pattern of the Conti on front left. Off to get the hole plugged today before I can take a reasonable length spin. I was not expecting a service moment within 15 minutes of picking up the car.

I have read the enthusiastic reports of so many new S4 recipients on this forum over the last 6 months or so with great anticipation. I am now sharing that great "kid in a candy shop" feeling as I explore the setup and how this thing gets its show on the road.

How long does the smile last????
