    Hi,

    Temp guage illumination, they are LED illuminated not conventional bulbs. Have a look at this thread and you will see the general idea - http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a4-a4-...53-dis-lcd-replacement-guide.html#post1225118 I sold my front facia to another member on here for a few quids, he may still have the temp guage as I think he wanted the fuel one, might be worth a message.

    Cambelt - on a V6 I paid £700 all in, but mine was a full cambelt, all the tensioners, pullys, waterpump and thermostat. DOnt go for the cheap cambelt offers as they dont do the tensioners/pullys. Waterpump is a must !

    I'm probably going to have to get my camblet changed soon - I'll let you know how much it costs.

    That's not a bad price - I got quoted £1100 from Audi and £600 from the (non-specialist) garage I got the car from.

    £1100 for a cambelt ??? Ouch, as above cambelt on a V6 Petro I paid £700 all in at a main dealer, but mine was a full cambelt, all the tensioners, pullys, waterpump and thermostat. DOnt go for the cheap cambelt offers as they dont do the tensioners/pullys. Waterpump is a must ! Never ever get a cambelt done without getting the pump changed unless its recent.

    At the service today, I got a quote of £620 for belt, pullies, tensioner(s), 'stat and water pump. It's about what I expected.

    It's still £100 more than Mrs Seeker's 2.4 petrol A6, though, which is due this year.:crying:
