    hello!

    my name andy and ive just bought a black a4 avant s-line 2.0 tdi tdv 149bhp on an 06 plate! beutifull looking moter as all audis are and very well equiped with its bose sound system etc

    have got one or two issues with it! its done 131k and it has full audi history, the life long sevice, its had the book stampped by audi but no sign of any work done! i'e cambelt chainged? surly at that mileage its had to have been done? also i found the clutch had a well used feel, not slipping but as if it could be on the way out? like as if there is no biting point?
    does anyone have any idea how much a clutch would cost in one of these?
    also wen i first started it up, it had like a curry smell like as if the heater matrix has gone, but the smell went when i test drove it, and there are no leaks in the foot wells? but it may not be an issue as i kept the blowers on hot for a while and there didnt seem to be a bad smell. after and wife couldnt smell anything! air con works perfectly!

    very nice

    yeah thats the 2.0 turbo 220bhp s-line specal edition? it came with the two tone leather, there are little things such as the s-line badge on the steering wheel and s-line on the crome door steps?

    there are a few blemisers i want to get sorted, alloys are slightly kerbbed so going to get um refurbed and theres a scratch and a hand full of stone chips on the front bumper and bonnet so im going to get it respray. got a private plate to put on W20 AMR (amr mine and my daughters intials), also it needs all round discs and pads so may as well upgrade them. MTEC black edition discs and mintex green stuff pads, thats all im going to do! i did toy on the idea on a re-map to 190bhp but i think im going over board now dont really want to go too far! the car looks and drives good as it is!

    oh it bloody annoys me m8 wen i polish it! black its a beutitiful colour but its the worse colour to look after! gets dirty within a minute on going out and shows evey little tiny mark, yeah thowing pepper on it would be a good term to use, my bonnet looks like orion's belt! but when i was looking for a car my wife specifically stated ''i want an audi'' good choice yes i want an audi too ''and i want it black'' knowing full well im the one who has to wash it! and being as i like sex, i said yeah:shrug:
