    Afternoon chaps...so in new to the a4 scene all together.

    I still have my 8p2 silver 1.9TDi waiting on the buyer, but recently I put down a deposit my B8 2.0TDi 08plate ice silver, 34k on the clock. With hill hold assist, parking aid, Bluetooth, aux and SD input from Audi 10500! Which I thought was a bargain

    VCDS is something I want to do. Any recommendations?

    Can anyone tell me if the bulbs on the interior and license plates from an a3 8p2 are the same size as the b8. I've purchased all LED interior and license plate bulbs from t8ups for my 8p2 and want to use them in the a4....also I installed footwell a lights into the 8p, would that wiring loom be the same for the a4 retrofit? Cheers

    Nice list. Silver really does suit the b8 well, shows off all the little styiling points that get lost in the darker colours.
    Need some pictures of the whole car and the new tips :).
