    Sucks man! I had my suspicions, then I noticed a new bit of bubbling today! What do you recon the costs are? New wing (I can see some rust on the inside) or just a respray?

    I don't think it's a poor manufacturing issue owing to the plastic inner wing having a smooth finish and the other three have a flocked finish. Probably had a minor shunt at some point!

    Ah well, it'll need seen to soon. Ill probably get the sills done at the same time, not that they are particularly in a bad condition or anything!

    Today I felt some strange left to right movement, heard a noise like a flat tyre and felt wobbling. Got home thinking argh please don't tell me I need a new tyre, around 3/4 tyres were much lower than they should be so all were pumped to a fairly high psi, took her out for a spin again and SO GLAD I took the second trip because wobbling was still there and now a squeaking along with the shake. Turns out the wheel nuts were coming loose :scared2: all tight now.

    2 replacement rear coil springs and bump stops fitted after discovering both of mine were snapped and bump stops had about 1" left. New undertray has arrived aswell as my twin exit rear bumper. Bonnet has gone walkies though,received a gearbox from seller instead so hopefully that can be sorted and it arrives undamaged but im now doubtful.

    Hopefully not, they've got longer locking bolts too so think it was just a case of rubbish bolts or a rubbish bloke putting them on (me haha).

    i had heard a few stories about people struggling to fit the rs4 mount so i come up with an idea boiled one kettle poured water into pan left mount in it for 5 min to gte it nice and soft added a bit lube (washing liquid) witch resulted in it going on so well u punched the lower block (ouch)

    so im happy with how it went on :)

    Filled up with diesel this morning along with third dose of Rhino. 45 mpg as opposed to 42 mpg on last fill up. Still pulling hard - love it! Been working in Leicester this week so giving it the beans on the M6 toll!

    Today I got some tyres fitted to my new summer alloys. Will ring my insurance company Monday to make sure they are happy and then fit them!

    They are A5 Speedline alloys 18" 8.5j ET29, with some Michelin Pilot Sport 225/40/18 92Y XL tyres on them. The haven't been refurbed as they are in pretty good nick and are OEM anthracite grey.

    Snap! Look nice in anthracite!
    You got the spigot rings?
     
  39. Changed the oil & filter, also changed the fuel filter on my 1.8t.

    Oil was in a state and so was the fuel filter. Doubting that the last oil change was done when it was stamped in the book!

    Yep, in fact I have 2 sets, had ordered one set and the guy I bought them off gave me a set too!

    Kris, I 'might' have used some of your info regarding the tyres and fitting etc, thanks. ;-) My Avant is a bit of a workhorse for diy (got a few projects on round the house and garden) so gets loaded up, kept the tread narrow to 225 to keep any scrubbing specifically at bay at the rear......

    The Michelin's have a hell of an alloy rim protector so both inner and outer are set well back.

    Think I need to start a project thread of my own......
