I painted my crashbar with a brush. Used Matt black makes it disappear nicely
As per Fingermouse
Think it was matt black hammerite and applied a couple of coats
Had first attempt on fitting today but couldn't figure out how to remove front camera from OEM grill
It’s screwed in?? Think there are 3 screws on the back
How good are Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs for Audi? I'm thinking to lower the ride about 30 mm
I have a set of these for sale if you are interested. Brand new still in box.
Why are you selling them??
Spring will be different depending on engine size, quattro & model year etc.
Its obvious I am asking for my vehicle i.e. 2012 A6 3.0 Quattro
Won them in a competition.
Dunlop SP Sport Maxx - For sale
Car just crossed 60k miles. Need service done soon. What should I look at while servicing other than changing all filters along with oil?

Fitted the grill today
And I forgot to attach front camera and parking sensors connection
New wheels ordered today
The b8 rs4 ones
Got phone call today. Wheels are ready. Collectoin/fitting tomorrow
What pressures shall I run in 20's??
The info I gathered shows 41 front / 39 rear is ideal for A6.
New shoes are ON

The settings below with a manual picture against them are for softer/comfortable ride
Worst pic EVER lol
i thought my pressures picture was quite artistic!
Haha i meant @Devilz
I knew it @Rhyso
Full picture will be posted once car is cleaned.
Few pics after cleaning her today....
Calipers painting is next. I'm thinking to go with ceramic colour. Any other suggestions?
Interim service done at 62k.
Technician advised Coolant is very discoloured and contaminated. Need full system flush. Price quoted is £167. Is this reasonable or I'm better off to get it done somewhere else.
Also air bag light is on and vagcom shows it's passenger seat belt tensioner. I had wiring check and all seems ok. Audi wants £490 for part only (tech said it's complete seat belt needs replacing as ignitor doesn't come seperate) plus labour.
Last but not least there was alot of oil underneath but engine oil levels are fine. Audi advise to clean the underneath for £60 and drive for 100 miles and get it checked again.

Mate of mine had this done on his BiTDI whe they were investing his oil / EGR cooler
From what I recall about what he told me It is a 3 stage product and involves driving inbetween each stage to help circulate the cleaning agents
If its discoloured though then you may have a problem with the EGR cooler my mate had his replaced by Audi. Luckily for him his after market warranty picked up the £900 bill.....
Can’t help about the seatbelt
Yeah I had the same with mine but it doesn’t use a drop of oil. Mine goes in for a service on Monday so I’ll see what gets reported. Not using Audi mind!
Looks like £167 is fair price than
What exactly did they do as part of the interim service? Mine is a similar age and mileage as yours. The oil was changed in Nov 2016.
Thanks in advance
Take the EGR cooler off and by pass the coolant lines
For some reason, car phone book is showing duplicate contacts. How can this be sorted? Some contacts are like 3 or 4 times
For last three tanks I'm using shell v power and fuel consumption has dropped massively. My driving style hasn't changed and I got around 260 miles out of each tank whereas before use to get 350
This might be down to the cold weather (I can always see the drop on my 3.0)...
On the other hand I usually go 1 full tank of Nitro+ then one of the regular diesel from Esso. Never noticed anything different.
