    I would say 10-15mm all round would be fine just remember longer bolts and locking bolts needed

    Think I'd go for bolt on hub cencentric spacers, had them before on my mk4 and think they're the safest type.

    Can they be done in 10-15 mm normally see them in over 20 mm due to the amount of material needed to hold the wheel bolt

    Mtec in Tamworth mate. I bought two sets, fitted perfectly. Mine are 20mm spacers and they came with longer bolts.

    It looks a bit better but i think the stickers are a fraction too small so dont reach the edges.

    Failed to retrofit DIS as my TX8 driver was too short to reach the screws in the steering column cover Why couldn't Audi just use normal screws like everyone else?
    What's more annoying is that I had been down to my Bora that I'm breaking to remove the washer level sensor and wiring to do a proper job rather than just ground out pin1, only to be foiled by two tiny screws

    I put some in my A6, granted the buttons aren't as worn as those but they look fine. The only annoyance is they're a gloss black rather than a rubber finish (which wears off anyway..) As long as you don't do odd buttons they look like they're meant to be like it.

    This is the only picture I have.

    Lol no they're stuck on well. It's worth taking the climate unit out, spirit wipe etc to make sure they fit spot on. I think several people on here have used them to good effect. They're a very cost effective alternative to a new unit, finding a good one of those (in double din) in good condition isn't easy.

    It's times like this when I think biting your nails has an advantage mine have hardly worn at all during my ownership.

    It makes me sad how much previous owners abuse their cars though.

    Had a very productive hour before it got dark (and freezing cold!) and did the following: -

    - Re-attached a small tear in the fabric around the passenger door where I managed to catch it with the corner of a new oven I bought before Xmas (knew I should've bought an Avant!)
    - Using some repair washers I bought from B&Q in the week I re-attached a section of the exhaust heat shield that had come loose next to the passenger side exhaust pipe
    - Glued my drivers side door mirror housing that was recently cracked by some tart in a supermarket car park. Solid as a rock now yet still completely useable
    - Fixed the dodgy connection on the headlamp switch on the dash to make the thing light up properly

    - replaced and fixed the number plate bulb and housing on the Missus' A4 Cabriolet

    Had all the suspension control arms, track rod ends/ bushes front and back replaced, Apex 40mm lowered springs fitted, feels like a new car, can't believe how sharp the handling is compared to the SE setup.

    Did you replace the shocks as well? How much did that set you back if you don't mind me asking? This is next on my list!
