    Picked up my A6 today to replace my Mk5 golf, it's been a good car but I don't think much to the golf's build quality.

    It's a 3.0TDi quattro S-line avant, with a decent spec, its been in the family for a good few years and been used & abused so needs a fair bit of work doing to it but got it at a very good price.

    lovely motor mate and looks like great spec.

    That's what I'm currently looking at as my next motor.
    That or a 5 series touring.

    Does the glass section in the boot open separately, like the BMWs?

    Whats the miles on that 184k?
    I can't make it out.

    It's well spec'ed out Xenons, Nav Bluetooth, LED rear light, Light & rain sensors, heated seats, full leather, cruise control, front & rear parking sensors. The glass is fixed, but I don't see the point in the split glass thing, you either open the glass bit of the boot or the boot, you still have to open something. It's not like the range rovers where the boot folds down so you can use it as a seat.

    It's on 184K, but I've already order all new front control arms, and shocks & springs. I'm also going to replace all the rear arms and axle guides, engine & gearbox mount and any other bushes that need replacing.

    I'm still going to keep my B5 and split the mileage between them.

    That's impressive spec mate.
    Weldone mate.

    I've used the split boot lid loads of times on my old BMW, Dad's Touareg and the X5.
    Its come in useful so many times.

    Have you got a link to what the Passat b5.5 arms look like, my wiper arms are jumping around once you are at around 75, so looking to replace the arms, as I think the springs have gone soft.

    uploadfromtaptalk1393711160488.jpg these are my ones been on two years now, they are pretty good, though there is a little area on the passanger side that doesn't get wiped, just about where the tax disc is so not really noticeable. Also don't turn them on with your bonnet up or you will take all the paint off the edge!

    when I done mine I gave my inlet manifold a clean out. the **** that I got out of it was unbelievable
     
  19. Yeah, I have been to Perth Audi, got the inlet manifold gaskits, I'm night off on Wednesday/Thursday, so you can guess what I'm doing lol
    What's the best thing to use to remove the crud?

    I used a mixture of gunk, petrol and left it sitting in diesel for a few hours.
    I also used a bottle brush on it which done the trick.

    wear old clothes that you wont mind binning afterwards as if you get the crud on any you'll never get them clean

    when do you want these wheels?

    Getting there, sideskirts and rear are a mixture of santorin and nogaro at the minute, when funds allow I'll get them painted up and fitted.

    On another note your manifold still hasn't gone, but I'm definitely off weds, so you will have it for das weekend!

    Cheap parts? :)


    I possibly drove Audrey for the last time.
    Since I'm cycling to work from tomorrow and for the 2 weekends I'm away and taking the Leon, so no need to drive the Audi.

    Bit of a late update but oh well.

    Saturday i fitted my new front right ABS sensor and it seems thats fixed my ABS problem which is nice. I was worried that it would be the wires in the module, but it appears not.

    I then went underneath and swapped out my stupid concrete spec gearbox mounts with new standard lemforder ones from a 2.5TDI.

    I hoped it would cure my gearbox whine, but no, it hasnt, however the car is now far more pleasant to drive with no horrible vibrations permeating thru the shell any more. I guess i'll keep an eye open for a sensibly priced replacement gearbox, and otherwise just ignore unless it breaks!
     
  39. Meyle HD kit ordered, can't wait to have knock-free front end, MOT 8th April, so I'll get it done nice and early

    I've only gone and washed the TQS!! First time in 6 months and only a quick once over but it's a start. I really want to get the car looking good again this year as it's currently looking a little sorry for itself :(
