    New 2000 A4 (b5) owner, happy but a few niggles!

    Hey!

    Well, i think I've bought a little gem really! A 2000 plate A4 1.8, ideal for what I need really. Except the colour... Which can't be helped. Lol.

    Few pics first:

    I'm impressed with the build quality, and that it still feels so solid. Everything works.

    I've got 3 problems I need help with though. Oh, it was just MOT'd with few advisories but nothing major really.

    1 - orange solid ABS light keeps coming on at 70+ then clearing as I drive slower. Brakes feel ok, but Im sensing some kinda wobble from the front left, maybe wheel bearing or ball joint?

    2 - I'm hearing a tinny rattle, mostly again from the left hand side? Exhaust shield? Does it going over bumps but strangely enough also when braking?!

    3 - I need my iPhone hooking up. It's got a concert 1 (tape player), will this work:

    Thanks for all help in advance, really hoping I can get these few things sorted so I can really enjoy it.
