    Today I ordered a new set of wheels for the Avant. I'm tired of trying to keep the old LM reps clean and tidy.
    I kerbed both passenger side wheels the other day and I've had to remove all the lacquer from the front wheel and try to polish it up but it's not worked to well.
    I'm sticking with the staggered fitment but I'm going with Momo Sentry wheels in mat black, 8.5x19 fronts and 9.5x19 rears. The rears look particularly good with a nice concave dish.

    Oh and finally got round to fitting my engine covers

    I think they are for an S4 hence a little bit of trimming for the top water hose to fit.
    Both covers from TPS were £16.60 each plus vat.

    Had the old girl Terracleaned this morning at Bowling Bank Garage in Wrexham. I can't begin to tell you the difference it has made. As soon as I started the car after it was noticeable smoother, quieter and as soon as I pulled off I could tell there was more oomph! I'll let you know how the fuel economy is after a few more miles but I suspect there will be an improvement. At £100 it is well worth it.
    The guys at Bowling Bank are top guys and ran through ever step of the process and explained how it works. If you are in the Wrexham area then I would whole heartedly recommend them (and the boss has a lovely RS4).

    Not me but the misses managed to dented the rear quarter. So my job is to see if i can fix it without costing the earth. Is there any way to get at the inside of the rear quarter, right behind the tail light.

    Any help would be great.

    Get it done, just watch the rubber seal when you put it back in, mine took 2 attempts unfortunalty as theseal had popped of very slightly, so as soon as it got warm enough it fired a small stream of bloody water out

    Removed the cracked elephant grey side skirt from O/S and refitted the freshly painted replacement, discovered that most of the retaining torx screws were rusted and the plastic grommets were past their best resulting in them spinning in the shell, new fittings ordered. Also bought some Seat Exeo front mudguards.

    New Sony speakers fitted, the wiring adapters supplied with the speaker adapters by Autoleads (SAK-1107) had the wrong plug connector on the end so i just cut off the plastic and used the male ends to push into the cars existing speaker plug.
    The sound quality is far better. The old original speakers look in good condition, no rips or tears so if anyone needs a set of OE replacement speakers then i have some.

    Deano - I am using the cheap and Chinese Xtrons direct fit unit for the A4, it has bluetooth, iPod connectivity, satnav and sd card slots and works ok for the money, it has a built in amplifiers 4 x 45w.
    [​IMG]

    I bought 2 of these packages off eBay
    AUDI A4 (00-08) - Front SONY Car Speakers + Speaker Adaptors - SAK-1107 | eBay

    Both front and rear doors use the same speakers and adapters.

    Today i ordered a complete S4 front brake set up off Adamss24. Going to clean up the callipers and give 'em a lick of paint and maybe fit some of those nice S4 anti-rattle clips. They should look amazing behind the 3SDM wheels.

    7325_x600.jpg

    Maybe i won't be buying these clips, they are £137 from the states :wtf:

    Thats what i said!

    $89.95 per clip and $51 for shipping! There is an Audi part number for them (8E0615269). So i'll see if TPS can supply them and see how much they want.

    If you go to a main dealer they are about £43 each I think (but can't remember if that inc or ex VAT), I managed to buy one on eBay for £20 but need a second one obviously......so will buy one when funds allow! I'll take a PIC of the OEM box mine came in so you have the correct part number.

    Also the same rattle clips were used on the newer S3 and a couple of other models so it'd be worth seeing if there is any massive difference in price and spraying/sticking S4 decals on if they are significantly cheaper!?
