I've always been afraid to do jobs like this myself. Not because I couldn't do it.... but more because I don't have the patience to make it perfect. Yours looks well done!

Your fine. I put one of my M54B30s through hell and it held up through it all. Had the car overheat at least 2 times. Oil pump nut came off and it had a supercharger. Ran just fine.

It's really hard to tell because there are a lot of things that can cause limp mode. The most common I see is the Idler control valve being stuck. It's very to remove and clean.

It's your level sensor that's sitting at the bottom of the oil pan. Mine went bad on my E46's and I never replaced them. I figured since I had an oil dip stick no need for a sensor or to waste money...

No problem at all!.

Realistically you can grab a instrument cluster from a junk yard if yours is truly broken. For extremely cheap and it'll work fine. Just the mileage reading will be off.

Try these steps in that thread and see if it works. It's usually just fuse related.

While this may be true. Regardless of knowing how to control your car or not. Traction control can still save you when unexpected things happen.

it could be anything. You could always buy a cheap OBD2 scanner on ebay and go scan the car yourself. If it's really just a misfire it's most likely spark plug/ignition coil related.

I know.. Honestly will see how much fun I have with the S4 for the next year or so. If I don't have enough fun I'll try and sell it again and get a ZHP or something. And turbo it.
