    A bit low on the ground at the moment guys, where have all the projects gone.

    I've spent plenty of money just recently Rob as your aware, in the form of new front suspension, rear springs and the new clutch a DMF. Usual case with this car unfortunately and thats other projects taking priority then i end up falling out of love with it. However, all seems to be good at...

    New clutch will not engage when engine is running

    Seems strange only did the clutch on my 2.0tfsi a couple of weekends ago and had no grief at all. Everything is definitely as it should be?

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Well i fitted the new clutch and Dual mass flywheel this morning took around 5/6hrs all in and pretty easy to do especially on a ramp. Started with mixed emotions tho, dropped the box out and removed the old clutch to fin it was in very good condition, very little wear on the disc and no signs...

    I just replaced with sachs ones bud, springs breaking is common on B7s especially Avants

    Xenon headlights blowing bulbs

    I don't disagree Tim, love the xenons, the output and the aesthetics, they make the car look years newer

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    A week and a boot full of kit over the weekend later and the rear springs seem to have settled in now to there pre replacement days and im quite happy with the ride height again. Another new issue to solve though now in the form of towbar wiring. I've been informed that the brake lights on the...

    Lots of guys selling their B7's.

    I love mine, but at the minute its breaking faster than i can maintain it. Just as i seem to be getting on top of the work, more goes wrong and its not like its a neglected car either, it always gets the best whenever anywork is carried out. Maybe its just a phase who know knows, maybe once...

    Xenon headlights blowing bulbs

    Maybe its just one of those things Ricky. I sawpped out the drl which was easy enough, and the o/s indicator bulb has had a standard amver bulb put in and tbf it doesn't look that obvious unless you look for it. I thought fitting the o/s one was a faf having to drop the arch liner, but the n/s...

    Fitted a pair of new rear springs today and a new steering rack boot. Also gave the rear discs and backing plates a quick tart up too whilst i was there. Be glad when the new springs settle in, its like I've fitted a lift kit lol

    Xenon headlights blowing bulbs

    Also if it makes any difference, when the drl bulb is out, the DIS describes it as "main beam"?

    Xenon headlights blowing bulbs

    Tbh im not sure, the only wires to connect were the two that open the shutters for main beam (pin 21 and 22, 32pin connector). Again not sure about the CE, but definitely coded for bi xenon with drl. As i said they work fine and as they should. The indicator bulbs i used were those chrome...

    Xenon headlights blowing bulbs

    I used the adapters and made sure i got the decent Kufatec ones then made the 2 connections into the CEM. The lights work as they should and work with the autolights and CH/LH lights too as per factory but seem to blow blubs way more often than my old headlights do

    Xenon headlights blowing bulbs

    Since retrofitting the oem bi xenons I've had no end of bulbs blow. First a DRL, then more recently an indicator bulb ( thought maybe it was the cheaper chrome finish ones at fault?) And now another DRL, all in the same headlight too. Never had this issue with the old halogen units and im just...
