    the repairs for my a4 since july keep coming lol

    2003 audi a4 2.5tdi v6 (fwd) 163bhp 85k on the clock


    2 drive shafts one needed one but decided best change both
    Timing beit It as we were advised
    Drivers side arms which the garage I use put the passenger side on the driverside was took to a different garage as we were starting to get problem from the garage to many time having to go back the next day
    A new alternator the belt jumped thats two alternator in my last to service from to cars 170 was going to be charged but ebay again half price delivery encluded
    Service which I like to do when i buy a carn
    Bonnet lever snapped
    Took the car for a mot wash got home the lacquer on the bonnet has patches coming so thats likely a bonnet respray same evening took the gf brother home the drivers window regulator broke lol

    Treated myself to a remap after the belt service was sorted got there car was to low to use there dyno(they use a dynopac) It saved me 70 pound completely transformed the motor but was told it was boosting late he told me it was a common fault so got it changed by usual garage they just took it out and hooked in the one and never set it so bye bye went the map no power in the car company that mapped the car tryed a few things there power now but not the full poeer from the map going to get the old one put back on as I was told it worked fine but they changed it because I asked them
    Think thats every thing lol

    So all in all out a fortune but just love the car so smooth to drive compared to my m ondeo tddi, we were in to minds weather to cut are loses because its one thing after another, just have to replace the brake discs and pads now with mintex ones RANT done

    Any one else suffered buying a motor it turning into a lemon lol
