    My Audi Life....

    Well ive been told to get a project thread on the go so spose i will. Some of you will recognise the car from here already so ill start from today...

    Used it for a few days now, i do 100 miles a day and the dirt was apparant:














    Got the plates off and found the old screws were stuck in, so when my personal plate goes on ill drill them out:









    Got my valeter to crack on:







    Wheels came up lovely (which ill be putting in the classifieds as i want some OE VAG wheels of some sort):













    Found a few blemishes. Firstly scouring pad action (look in the house roof reflection):








    Door:








    Rear quarter:








    Rear Bumper:









    All Washed:











    And then i went round an polished it:















    So plans are this.....
    Because my private plate only has 5 letters, its short as seen here on my Vectra that im selling:








    And as someone has fixed the front plate on my audis bumper at the edges the screw holes will be seen. So as i have a spare bumper in the garage im going to get the plate recess shortened on the bumper thats on the car using bits from the spare bumper.
    I also want the boot recess shortened also.
    First off i want the wheels gone in exchange for some OE VAG ones, but not made up my mind which. Ill have to see what i get offered.
    I know some will hate it but i want to fit a dump valve, which i have in stock, just need a fitting kit.
    Ill be ordering a full Milltek too, finding a KO4 turbo, having it remapped, and uprating the brakes with something beefy, and not standard.
    Suspension wise im hoping on a full eibach kit as opposed to coilovers due to the milage i travel, but as i may buy a small works van this could change

    So thats it for now, ill update as and when. Thanks for reading!

    Nice looker, always was, and if you look after her, no reason for her not to stay like it either.

    I had the same problem with the shorter plate, i decieded on the cheapskate option of a GB style one with the digits centered.lol

    Nice machine... saw this when it was up for sale.

    I'll be interested in seeing your front bumper when it's done as I could do with this mod when I get my plate on mine!

    Do you have a 'full-on' side shot of your car please so it shows the lines of the lower front splitter? I have one to fit on mine, but unsure where to place it as it's a bit curvy under there!

    Cheers,

    yer, its just a little more involved as you need to physically connect the actuator etc to the throttle valve, but it is possible.

    As i say, ours is fitted. I got the ECU, pump, stalk and actuator from A8Parts (the A8 components are the same as the A4 ones) for about 90quid, and spent a further 30ish on the correct brackets to hold the actuator to the engine and the pump under the ABS modulator. Made the loom up myself using the wiring diagrams from the A8 and A4. It just doesnt work. I've got a fault finding guide which shows my wirings all spot on. The stalk works, the ECU has power and the pump makes the correct noises. The only thing i havent confirmed is the speed signal is getting to the ECU correctly.

    I need to get the voltmeter onto the pump when moving and see whats happening, but my thaughts are either the ECU is faulty, or the speed signal is wrong.

    they fit under the standard 16's

    You need TT carriers, B6 312mm disks and use the stadnard calipers and pads.

    Nice car you got yourself there.

    Was never a fan of the wheels but I remember they were cheap enough for a new set of bbs.

    Nice car there, Drizz.

    Just in case you want OEM wheels, I'll do a trade with a set of Avus wheels with tyres.

    7,5" x 16" with very legal 225/50x16.

    Currently on my Avant S4.

    Cheers Siena but if they were an inch bigger id be interested...
    Ill be advertising the rims without the tyres tomorrow as i can use the Tyres on the new Radius wheels.
    I just dont think these BBS suit the car. Lovely wheels, colour and finish wise, but just dont look right. Who knows if the R6s will look right but hey ho.....
    Byzan, what do you mean splitter type DV?

    Yes mate ! The VAG system has a long standing problem working correctly with too much air not being recirculaed using a Diverter Valve, or a splitter type one on low atomospheric setting

    Well mines a DV26. Not very loud but ive put that down to the very good insulation in the A4 compared to the old Vauxhalls im used to turbo'ing. But it still runs the same?

    The C/Z20LET suffers the same issues really, as they also use a MAF for the main fuel metering.

    The MAF fuels for air thats no longer in the system, as the DV is dumping metered air. This means you get a short period of overfuelling after the dump due to the system fuelling for the dumped air as well as the new air, and this can cause flatspots and other odd issues with the way the car runs in general. Its basically introducing a massive leak into your intake system.

    I think the A4 is espeically susceptible as it has no MAP or boost sensor, it ONLY uses the MAF for fuelling, unlike the LET's

    So if it has no MAP/Boost sensors surely adjusting the preload on the actuator will allow more boost without the car really knowing about it? Or am i talking twaddle?
