    Hi guys wondering if ftting an oil catch tank to my 2000 a4 b5 quattro would be a worth while upgrade or are they just something to spend some money on & make the engine bay look pretty ?
    Thanks.

    I was going to do it but then i cant be arsed draining the can of condensation every few weeks so im just going straight to vent to atmosphere. Cutting down the black metal pipe that works its way around the engine, sticking a hose on the end of that and routing the piping down to the passenger side bumper grille so it doesnt smell in the cabin, stick the hockey puck thing on the end and then the breather filter on that. Oh and obviously bung up the TIP where the puck used to push into it.

    Is there any difference between a 1.8T A4 and a 1.8T A3?
