    B6 Avant rear washer problem

    This must be a problem as the same thing has happened to my motor, just kept going all the time. I got one from scrappies with the later part number off an 04 plate car and it has the same issue, even though it works properly Seems to be a problem with the seal between the two plastic seals...

    ESP Light on solid /Glow Plug light flashing??

    Just rang Audi they say even if the switch is Knackered I have to bring it in to service, for them to check it is fitted properly. Well I cant see any other way of fitting it, it clicks in place simple as that and it is a nice healthy click. Bad thing is they will say it is fitted wrong whatever...

    RS4 22mm Rear Anti Roll Bar Fitted!!

    I would just like to bring this thread up again. I just done mine and I found the the brackets (stock) are too small for the bigger bushs and can lead you in danger of threading your bolts. I ordered the proper RS4 mounts for the RARB and they are a much better fit and make the job so much...

    A4 Avant TDI 130 tyre choices

    So whats OEM spec then. The tyres my car has are not OEM so cant use them as a guide. 2002 1.9tdi 130 Avant EDIT Just checked kwik fit and they fit H rated tyres to my car, so V is better than that, so should be fine.

    A4 Avant TDI 130 tyre choices

    I currently have P6000s that are now due for a change, to be fair they have been good to me, grip fine and wear well. What are other owners using and why. Also my current tyres a W speed rated, isnt this abit overkill and can I get V rated instead. Thanks for any replies.

    Help needed boot related

    My dash display is showing my boot is open, but it is firmly shut. Can someone point me in the right direction, can fix it myself easy enough if I know where to look or what to change.

    ...closer to the Big Turbo Upgrade...

    Its a good looking car, deserves 350 bhp, pretty sure you could get it done cheaper than that or is that engine work aswell.
