    2) coolany or oil? why do you want to flush. what milegae you on, you can open up a can of worms flushing older cars as you flush big chunks of crud off the walls and the have to stop somewhere, water pump, oil pump, oil cooler.....think DVT.
    As far as how easy it is, open appropriate cap, pour in flush, run engine, dump (responsibly!) refill.
    try persil on your coolant system for a good clean (not joking)

    3)four rings spares, VAG spares, choose a decent brand and shop around
    4) there is a custom mat company that was advertised in PVW or Audi driver or one of those mags, not silly prices either

    5)have a look on www.autotrader.co.uk

    Having a city and guilds in motor vehicle repair, even though it was attained over 10 years ago, I would never put washing machine detergent in an engine.

    For a start it foams up and different chemicals have differing creep properties, so if you put in an alien fluid that has an advanced creep property then it may seep into somewhere it shouldn't be, like an oil gallery.
    And how do you think persil will react to coolant when you add it? I wouldn't like to guess.

    Try using a product designed for the purpose intended...[​IMG]

    Try that
