    Evening all just picked up a sexy nogaro Blue s4 and from coming from a b7 2.0tdi it's amazing few questions I have though just been on a first night drive and the headlights/ xenon seem to be abit high is there any chance of adjusting these also has any one fitted auto headlights.
    With the glove box hinge do you have to replace the whole glove box or can you just replace the hinge any got a part number.here's the beauty

    Ash, check out the faqs section, there may be a guide in there and quattrojames has posted a comprehensive part number list and lots of useful links. :) x

    Nice S4 :icon_thumright:

    Auto headlights requires a new windscreen with the light sensor fitted I think, I'm sure it's been done but it's a biggie.

    You can repair the hinge, I've written a guide in the DIY Guide's sticky, or you can replace the glovebox. The lid isn't available on it's own unfortunately.

    Think you need to upgrade the half grille to a full size one... Then wet sand it, and it'll look the nuts

    xenons can be adjusted by height in two differnat ways
    easiest is via vcds settings
    there are sensors on the front and back of the vehicle which align the headlights to the correct height
    when switched on the headlight cycle through maximum height , minimum height and then correct level
    if you switch them on with the car facing a wall you will see the height change

    you can manually adjust under bonnet , but unless its correct with sensors it may throw an error and put the warning light on
    the auto on these headlight simply means they turn off after a specific time , not that they come on and off with light sensor

    mine has auto but does not have a light sensor in screen

    It's an Electric Vacuum Pump for the brake servo. Only fitted to models with Tiptronic Transmission I think.

    Plasti dip is a spray paint that can peel of if you don't like it basically but strong enough to stay on
