    Can't wait - had an S3 and was on this forum a fair bit a few years back but since then went sensible for a while with Astra sri 150 diesel....whilst wife drives my old golf gti lowered, remapped ko3 :yum:

    Anyway - the b6 is good spec - full leather, rear park sensors, 18" rs4 and had sludge work carried out....got caught out with that years back in a passat wagon!

    Main point i noticed (barring finding out from previous owner if its had a cam belt) is replacing glove box lid - one arm holding is broken. Is there an easy fix - was thinking drilling with thin drill bit and using wire of is this a non starter?

    Are they available from scrap yard, anyone have a decent audi parts specialist i can email (don't seem many B6 black ones on E-bay and they seem to fetch more than I'd have expected).

    Remap wise - seem to go to around 220bhp but i guess it's the rise in torque thats key to driving experience - is it worth it from that point of view?

    R-Tech mapped my gold but thats quite full on (though may be the suspension that gives this feeeling...) - whats the best re-map for these (without opening lots of debate) - angel tuning any good?

    Any help much appreciated and looking forward to posting some pics at weekend (it's black so at 38 years old i'm hoping that spark for regular cleaning will come back....on top of all house hold jobs lols).

    It sounds like it's a very nice car indeed. I'm guessing the engine is the 1.8T from what you've said? It sounds like you know the main problems so you should be good there. Anything else...i'm a diesel man so won't have a clue haha!

    I'll let others recommend remapping etc. I had mine done by shark performance, but not sure how he is with petrols. Where are you based? Location will also make a difference for recommendations :)

    No heaters i'm afraid but decent spec with full quality audi leather (not that many avants seem to have leather), rear park sensors, orig rs4 18's....audi sub (non bose but sounds very good after vauxhal ****) and armrest and ali trim - but guess they are standard.

    i,ve got a very decent alpine retro head unit - 60w x 4 jobbie that tilts and used to be a regular unit for sound off cars but i understand wiring to change over is a complete hassle, not sure if it will look right either but no doubt something i'll explore in due course.

    Engine is the 1.8t 190 2004 - think they have the twin intercooler set-up like the s3 8l and whats 'known' as ko3s turbo (my aum golf has the ko3s and mapped to 200-210 brake with serious torque quoted around 225lb v- very quick car to be honest).

    I'm just down the road in Tonbridge, Kent if you want to try a Shark Performance remap.

    Site looks good, very professional. What torque is expected (just mentions 210bhp with nomention of torque output after map)?
