    Have you replaced the thermostat? Mine was running at 70 degrees but with the new stat it's back to 90 degrees.

    No not done the stat but I guess I'll have to now. Any idea on price of one of these and how easy it is to fit?

    Ok cool, cheers mate.
    Just had a bash at replacing one of the number plate bulbs which turned into needing to drill out the screw which turned into the threaded part not coming out which turned into the long black light housing surround needing to be removed WHICH IT DOESNT! NIGHTMARE!

    Seeing as the big yellow thing has shown it's face and I'm off work, and the car has been recently polished, all I done today was I washed, chamois'd and AG SGP'd it! I also used tyre shine on my tyres and all black rubber/plastics! Not to forget glass cleaner!

    Tonight I will be fitting my two EGR blanks (think it's actually coded out of my map anyway!) and will attempt to remove the EGR and then refit it with a new seal as it is weeping a bit of oil. On my first attempt I found the three allen bolts a bit of a mare to reach and even budge but we will see this eve.

    Picked car up after having pro kit fitted.
    This week have managed to change number plate light surround, fix boot release wiring problem, change coolant sensor and stat, fit new brake lines all round and rear drop links - MOT next week!!
    Next job is applying this carbon effect wrap to interior and applying transfers to climate control unit, radio and other worn interior buttons.

    Happy days! Had a bit of work done on the old beauty today.

    Cambelt, tensioner, water pump, thermostat, aux belt, aux belt tensioner, a wee service and brake fluid change for good measure!

    Must say, the service at Stafford Audi is second to none, highly rate them after today. I'm a fussy bar-steward but they certainly did well to cater to my OCD so can't fault them at all. Probably called me a few names after I left though The bill was pretty reasonable too considering.... they came in much cheaper than the 4 other dealers that I called, hence why I was happy to make the 2 hour round-trip to drop the car off then another 2 to collect!.

    Mind you, makes it a bit easier when they give you a nice loaner:




    Hurts a bit when you have to hand it back though, LOL!
