    I'm having a bad month with the car :(

    Lower arms needed changing.

    First when changing the rear discs, I had a seized knackered caliper. Swapped it over to find that the discs i'd ordered were wrong.
    New discs ordered. Fitted along with new hand brake cables.

    Bleeding the brakes today, noticed on the front hoses they're knackered. So need new hoses.

    Also found that the arb had stripped out the threads in the end and lost the bolt.

    Electric window cable snapped this morning.

    What a fun month.

    On a good note, serviced fine and replaced my bleed off hoses.

    oh and my airbag light has come on.
    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    I know how you feel, I had a similar expirience a few years ago with my Ibiza Cupra;

    Started off by taking two days off to refurbish my front brembo callipers and do a few other little jobs, upon removing the calipers the brass brake line end sheared off inside the calliper - both sides did this!

    I ended up having to purchase 1 new calliper, on-top of all of this I had issue after issue - the shocks started leaking due to being jacked up, the car ended up being off the road for a month and I spent just under £1k on parts/tools!
