    Hi, i've recently seen lots of knowdledgable people on this forum kind enough to start threads explaining step by step with pictures of how they installed their recent upgrades. I find these very useful, but as they are threads in normal sections they tend to get forgotton or pushed too far back that a search is required to find them. Therefore a Howto/guide section within each model section would be useful to put these sort of threads in and also helpful to new users not needing to start a new thread to find answers.

    Any member who believes a thread should be made into a sticky let a moderator know,the forum is all about helping the members and letting useful threads die is not in our interests.
    Thanks Ron

    I've done it in the B6 section into a sticky titled "DIY Guides and FAQ" - yet it still seems that the majority of people post a thread before searching......

    I don't have the knowledge of specific model problems to do it in all the forums though.

    Hi Voorhees and quattrojames, thanks for your replies. I've just had a look at the B6 section and quattrojames that is awesome. One simple reference point to look for guides/links to guides. i think something similar should be made for all sections especially the 8P section.lol :p

    There are mods with far more A/S3 knowledge than me, but if you get stuck, PM me all the links that you feel should be in there and I will do it.

    I was just about to post on this!

    I think you could create a stickied how to folder with sub categories within each model section...

    I personally would be more than willing to write some how to's showing how to replace brake disks/pads and do a service etc

    As I said below, if you write the threads and send me the links I will put them in a thread and sticky it in the relevant model section.
