    All tqs's are basically small engined s4's, so black headlining, Ali trim, strut brace etc all standard

    If your thinking about brake upgrades, maybe now is the time, as depending on the setup you choose you may need different rear lines?

    If your gunna upgrade the rears and leave the fronts as 312's then get S4 facelift vented rears as the TQS brake hoses are the same as the S4 iirc

    Plus if you ever decide to go bigger upfront you then have the S4 rear calipers to do the 300mm upgrade !!

    What's a price estimate for the s4 facelift brakes? I might take the chance to upgrade them rather than just doing the brake lines. We shall see.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Cheers for the info bradderz. The rear subframe is looking a little worse for wear also. The mot tester suggested I wire brush it all and protect it. Waxoyl? What do people use for stuff like this? Or should I get a new/refurb subframe? I'm sure at this age the bushes will be worse for wear.

    Its upto you how you do it either way it has to come off ....

    1. Buy a used frame, clean it up then spray it or get it powdercoated, then fit new bushes and find time to fit it !!

    2. Remove frame then as above clean, paint, new bushes and fit !!

    Just before winter i just cleaned it best i could on the car and used some underseal but may look at doing it properly in the summer when the drive is abit warmer to ly down on if im not in the trade that is otherwise il do it at work on a ramp and stand as im looking at doing the rear bushes pretty soon thinking of poly bushing

    Mine is desperate for it too, I gave it a coat of waxoil aerosol when i had the car, I will probably do this again as soon as car is mobile. Hopefully stop it where it is. No one ever looks under the car, so wouldn't know how scabby it looked,LOL

    Been looking at braided hoses for when i upgrade the brake lines. Was thinking of this kit; HEL AUD-6-215

    Most sites state that it's avant and don't explicitly state whether the avant and saloon brake lines are the same. Are they?

    Also, anybody used brakes4u, they are a lot cheaper than most other places! (I've emailed them to ask the same fitment question, but I don't always trust online sellers)

    Cheers

    Avant and saloon are the same iirc

    When i ordered my goodridge hoses and ate blue off ebay i gave them these measurements

    Front: ~330mm with 2x Female ends
    Rear-Subframe to Wishbone: ~190mm with 2x Female ends
    Rear-Wishbone to Caliper: ~255mm with 1x Male and 1x Female ends

    Think there M10x1 thread iirc

    Cheers mate, very helpful!

    How much were your hoses? From brakes4u I can get the HEL ones for about 85ish, for all 6, which I didn't think was too bad.

    Ah nice. First time i've done brakes, so might be interesting. I'll be ordering the lines in a bit. Think I might put super blue in too, i've seen it mentioned a few times now...so must be good.

    Thanks again.

    I'm confused now...

    I enquired about the braided hoses but got no reply, so went about buying the ones I thought were correct. Sods law, about an hour after I ordered a set somebody got back in touch and said that since I don't have an avant, I need one of two other choices.

    It depends on whether my chassis code is pre 8D-V-168-350 of from 8D-V-168-351.

    Looking at my chassis code (vin) in my service manual it's wauzzz8DzXA3....

    Does that mean I'm post 8D-V-168-351? I hate chassis numbers, and I'm on my phone too so using them decoders is a pain in the arse too.

    Any advice?

    I think all tqs are from 8d-x-200-001 as that was the facelift change over, not sure what the "v" is about ?

    Interesting! With my lack of knowledge I think i'm gonna keep them as is this time! I don't want to factor more possible failures into this little bit of maintenance! :D

    Cheers mate. I'll give them a ring tomorrow. I'm still not sure what is different between a saloon and avant though...if anything?!?!
