    Combe was sooo wet in the morning,then really hot in the afternoon,the weathers gone nuts,i thought that there was a lack of stands there,track action was good ,my mate mark from caerphilly was having a great laugh on track in his mk 2 golf making mincemeat of nearly everything.Disappointing A/S turnout only 4 cars and 1 turned up late afternoon ,forecast was really bad so i don't blame people.Not sure if i will still have A3 for next meet it may be sold by then,so maybe a a4 avant by then.Cheers Andy

    Bought the garnett red 06 a4 avant 2.0t quattro s-line se yesterday,drove it all the way back from peterbrough with no problems,went to the local supermarket later and it started misfiring ,engine check light came on,fecking coilpack gone.At least it didn't go on the way home ,phoned rac today and they came out ,changed it cost £30 ,back to audi tomorrow to see if they will change other packs foc.Very pleased with car ,excellent spec the only things missing are nav,sunroof and bose,the rest is there i think,it drives very well,lots of grunt from the 2.0 with a better more agressive engine note than a 1.8t,all the servicing is done,i fancy a rs4 rear arb ,some wheel spacers(i already have 1 spare pair),a remap probably revo,panel filter and maybe a uprated type dv ,if it needs it.Cheers Andy

    no need for panel filter mate, the stock items are more than capable even after a remap. not sure what DV you have but just stick on the DV from the TT im sure its the 106A at the end but dont quote me, i would go look for you on my S4 but i really cant be bothered lol.

    shame about the coil pack, atleast its only £30 huh. get some pics up
