    I picked up my '98 a4 1.8T last night and stumbled accross the forum today. Just wanted to say hi really. It's silver with a little under 81k on the clocks, in stunning condition inside & out very pleased with the purchase :happy:

    No real plans to mod the car other than de-badging the grille, lower it a smidge, fit window tints & some nice wheels.

    I'm pretty sure the thermostat's knackered as the car runs too cold, is it worth changing the temp sender as well or just wait & see if a new thermostat sorts it (if worth changing at the same time is 423440010 the correct bosch part number?) I was planning on ordering the bits off euro car parts...

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Change the CTS first as its the easy/cheaper part. If it does not sort-it then fresh antifreeze and new thermostat is the way to go.
