    I have been searching ebay but can't seem to find either of these items.

    I am after the black screen wash/coolant caps to replace the random blue ones (have seen some before but cant think where) and ideally if they had a dipstick with black ring on top instead of the orange one that would be good too.

    Also wanna dewiper the rear but wan't the black glass plug instead of just a rubber bung but can't find these either.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If you have a search on here there's a few threads with the glass bung.

    Awesome GTI sell a black coolant cap, but not a screen wash one. I was thinking of painting mine.

    Good luck

    Come on N8 - I'm trying to understand ! Please tell me why someone would want a black coolant cap instead of a blue one and a black ring on top of the dipstick instead of orange !
    :wtf:

    Unless of course it's all to do with posing with the bonnet up ! :laugh:

    no need to be sorry. i'm not as sensitive as some other users on ASN and you're entitled to have a different opinion to me. each to their own and all that.

    Haha, I'm not going mad on the engine bay but I do like it to be kept clean and neat. The biggest thing that bugs me is the gap on the right hand side

    Got a MFSW sat next to me at the moment, Single Din stuff may be sorted this week, Dewiper the rear soon, plates, bit of tidying up and that's it for this year. Then springs, spacers, cruise control, finish the install and possibly wheel change next year :)


    Oh and may aswell ask, any ideas on what a S line steering wheel (minus the badge, need it for the mfsw) and double din setup (without the headunit) are worth roughly?

    Thanks

    MFSW - I bought one last night on ebay for £31 + a tenner postage.

    Another one went for £1.20 but postage on that was £45 !!

    So I suppose a standard one will be considerably less ?

    Just by searching ! This is the £1.20 one :-http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280575515003&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    And this is the one I bought :- AUDI A3,A4,A5,A6,Q5,Q7 S-LINE STEERING WHEEL (2007) on eBay (end time 24-Oct-10 21:08:54 BST)

    Just have to make sure that my airbag and connectors are suitable PLUS I know I need another steering ecu, the one with the suffix 'F'.

    Don't know anyone selling one do you ?

    Cheers

    8P0 953 549 F is the Audi one shown in EKTA

    1K0 953 549 AK or AJ - yes you are right those are the VW equivalents and would be ok.

    My current one is 1K0 953 549 AF which was ok for my cruise control upgrade but not for mfsw. I also think I have the highline DIS, at least it shows mpg etc. at the bottom; outside temp in the middle and radio station or phone at the top !

    Got info from :- Steering Wheel Control Module Versions - Ross-Tech Wiki

    Cheers

    Just thought I'd bring you up to speed. Got the wheel which was exactly as described but on close inspection it won't fit ! Well that's not strictly true because it will fit the steering column ok but there is a subtle difference between the A4 wheel airbag fitting and my existing A3 airbag fitting.

    Be aware that the only difference NOT apparent until you try to fit it is that the airbag screws on the A4 wheel go in at an angle whereas the A3 ones go in straight ! No way can it be made to fit.

    Moral of the story :- not all adverts stating " fits A3, A4, A5 etc. etc. are strictly correct down to the last detail - in my case the most important detail of fitting the bloody airbag !

    FOR SALE - A4 MFSW from 2007 model, part number - 8PO419091BLTNA :sadlike:
