    Off eBay. The bloke who sold them put they were in very worn condition, just cleaned them up and they look good. The only thing is the drivers seat is from a b7 s4 I think and the passenger's seat is from a b6 s4 but you couldn't tell by glancing tho

    Just fitted my DIS stalk and turned it on with VCDS Lite (Registered version)

    waiting for repair wire to arrive to sort washer warning :)

    30 minutes from start to finish
    Well chuffed as I expected the VCDS Lite would not work after reading Retrofit threads.

    Hi Matty

    VCDS Lite registered worked for the DIS but may not work for other bits.
    I have re-coded my ABS before in the 8L when I fitted the 312 discs and that worked too.

    I think lite gets stuck when you go near any of the Immo stuff and security which I don't need.

    Thanks for that anyway. Prices are extortionate. Audi want £53 each! and even at trade price from TPS they are £44 each.

    After seeing greeny's posts of his great looking car I gave mine a wash. It's now blue not the brown colour it's been for the last two months! Only down side is now I can see how bad my wheels are:sorry:

    you don't 'need' a repair wire, i done mine by sticking a stripped wire (stripped a good half inch) into pin 1 then grounding it on the earth point behind the clocks. :)
