    On the subject of the PCV mod, I wouldn't describe that as "simple", it looks like brain surgery to me lol. Hopefully my mate will have a clue what it means though.

    Why don't you pick up the phone? He doesn't bite, and if you are lucky Paul will answer.

    bottom of the page when sending a message are additional options, you can save a sent message and even see if its been read.
    Or as said above just ring.

    Should mention that Bill is on hols currently but should be picking stuff up in the evenings... he is usually easier to get hold of on his mobile but would suggest email in the first instance... all his contact details are in his forum in the sponsors section

    cripes that is pretty steep for an induction kit!

    Cheers, thinking of just getting badger or someone to do all the mods in the stickies in one fell swoop and be done with it.

    Oh, forgot to mention water leak into passenger footwell! Mate reckons it's water build up in bulkhead and funnily enough I found an old receipt amongst all the paperwork from yearrrrrrrs ago about the same problem! Well after Sunday night's downpour the first 5 mins driving the next day saw half a pint pour out from somewhere above into footwell. A common thing perhaps?

    Yeah...This isn't some BMC CDA ********.

    Pound for performance it is one of the best mods for an S3.

    Flows more air? lol

    Well my mate has had a nightmare doing the cambelt. His younger brother, both of them with a combined total of over 20yrs experience working in garages also has an S3, a BAM but has done very little to it yet. Since this job he has said he's taking his to Audi to do lol. That's must say a heck of a lot!

    And now my key fob won't work at all, do they have batteries? Thing is the spare won't work either. Just a battery problem? Can't slide the cover off for the life of me.

    So I've emailed badger5 numerous times in the past few weeks asking for quotes about stuff and am getting no replies so presumably they are just too busy. Can anyone recommend the next best place for Audi performance?

    Give him a call or drop him a PM through here....

    He is a very busy chap but well worth getting hold of.

    Bill works pretty much on his own most of the time... he has to tune cars, pack orders, take phone calls and all the other work that comes in through the door... I know he get a shed load of emails and the eBay store takes up a lot of those... its easy for your emails to have got lost tbh...

    Ring his mobile number between 9am and 6pm and you will get through to him...
