    Hi all, another **** newbie question here for all you devoted audi fans. I was planning to buy a few items off a guy on here but i suppose he gets alot of plums nocking at the door and before i could contact i was blocked
    :( . (oh well no harm done). Anyway im in need of a TIP and im not fussed about 2nd hand as im litteraly broke as gadaffis flip flop. And id rather pay 2nd hand money for a decent make than just go get a egay jobby. So if you or somone you know is selling one then let me know. Just so im un the know, what is the best make? I have a a3 1.8t AUM. Many thanks to all for your patients.

    I got lucky and got a brand new forge one on egay half price, if I hadn't I would have a bought a cheap ebay one though, from what I'm led to believe there is no extra benefit to having a nice shiny logo on a TIP......

    I got an autobahn one, functions well, but unless your getting the b5 tip i dont believe you will see a massive difference (i didnt notice any) so if your going for a standard size TIP i'm thinking the ebay ones are probably very similar to the forge ones so IMO i would go for whatever was the cheapest!
