    Timing belt kit

    Hi people. Looking for some advice please. I'm finally getting round to organising a garage to replace my timing belt and water pump on my 1997 3.7 Sport, at least i thought i was but according to my garage even Audi dont stock a replacement kit. Is there anywhere i can get the right parts nowadays?

    Headlight bulb upgrade

    My D2 has rubbish headlights and I was wondering if anybody knew of an upgrade? Currently my dipped, main beam and fogs are surprisingly poor. Alternative bulb advice would be appreciated as I don't want to go through the xenon upgrade. Thanks

    Cabin/Pollen filter
