    lol, doesn't sound too good when you say it like that.

    anyway, i'm pretty sure it'll be the xenons (with the correct uk beam ;)) i'm running with the us lens. ;)

    cheers guys,

    back will come down a bit more once i source new adjusters (or could just remove them altogether to gain an extra inch ;) ) wheels will then get spaced a little.

    Rear wiper annoys me James! Why don't they remember the home position? Will be de wipered when I fit my us boot lid.

    Looking for some 19" wheels so might sell the fat 5s or might keep them

    They should remember there home position there should be a live that returns them back maybe the copper contacts in the motor need cleaning, is the wiper slow you may have a water leak in the motor for what it takes i would take a look incase there is a problem you dont want it to get worse.

    cheers for the comments guys,

    Just been out to fit the new xenons, removed the original lights, went and got the news out the garage... And they don't fit!

    Off a bloody cab, bought them as s4 saloon ones!

    Anyone with a a4cab want some good as new xenons?

    That's looking well sweet,

    Any parts you remove and no longer need, PM me as I'm doing up my quattro avant, bought it cheap but it's a bit tatty at the mo....

    Also what coilover kit did you go for and how much was it?

    Simon - Car drives perfect, same if not better than the standard sport suspension, really impressed with the coilovers. I'm thinking of getting the driveway done so that would help however this isn't the first car to be beached down the bottom of the drive.

    jbcalvin - Thanks, I'll probably just keep anything I replace so i can put back to standard if need be.

    Coilovers are FK, can't remember the model name off the top of my head, height and damper adjustable though, managed to pick them up off ebay from someone that lives only 20miles from me ;)

    Na I've still got the Bora (E3 APC) and my mk2 gl, but fancied an audi for a while. Seen a nice S3 but this 190 s-line avant has really taken my eye.
