    Removing badges

    @88rsr good shout Matey. Think I'll just order some new badges up and paint them prior to fitting, or removing the old ones. Cheers for that Pal!

    Removing badges

    I suppose you could use a steamer to heat the adhesive too. I'm thinking of taking mine off to have them painted Nardo Grey and reapplied to my black A6 Avant. Any thoughts on this? Or any advice regarding paint or perhaps other methods of colouring the badges? Cheers folks! Quick afterthought...

    Just bought a 2012 A3 1.6TDi Sport Sportback for the family. Very happy with it.

    A6 Avant C7 Bi T Tyres

    What price on Dunlop Sportmaxx RT's? They're very good. Grip great, very quiet and last a fair amount of time too. I've had them on my last 3 cars without fail.

    Tyre advice please

    Hi All, I have a 2010 A6 3.0 TDi Le Mans Quattro running the standard alloys which come with 255/35/R19 tyres. I sent my Wife to replace the 2 front tyres whilst I was away with work and she was sold some 235/35/R19's for the front. Now the car makes a rumbling noise under acceleration. I am a...

    Performance tweak., 2.7 le mans

    Hi Lee, Once you have ascertained that the car is solid, I would thoroughly reccommend a good remap. That 6cylinder engine is ripe for a lovely smooth upgrade and the extra power and smoothness really helps turn the car from a very big and heavy car, into something which feels much lighter and...

    Air Con Noise

    Hi, It sounds like the motors, of which there are many in the cars interior climate control system, are just continually redirecting the airflow around the cabin. It is perfectly normal to hear some clicking, but if you think it's excessive, contact somebody with a similar car of similar age...

    Servicing??

    To be honest, I disagree with the above. The long life servicing plan sounds ideal for you. You're not exactly stressing the engine sitting on a motorway, so the 18k you do is easy on the car. The modern, fully synthetic oils that Audi use are more than capable of doing this mileage without...

    c6 rs6 grill fit my c6 allroad?

    RoyC, that new grill looks fantastic. I had been thinking of doing a swap myself too when I have a few pounds to spare. Can I be cheeky and enquire where you got the grill from, and how much it set you back please?

    I'd say you should be ok at 150k to be fair. The important bit is the main dealer history. Just have the timing chain checked for tension and noise. I'm Sure the price asked is reflective of the mileage, and part of the reason you want that particular vehicle, so bash on, and enjoy I say!

    Fact is, the 3.0Tdi 240bhp is more frugal as a manual car (which mine is) than an older engine 2.7Tdi 190bhp. The government figures are shocking! The remap on yours must be amazing to give those figures. If so, I'd like mine done too! Thanks for not lowering the tone again with profanity this...

    New to Audi and looking at an A6 3.0 TDi

    I said you were lying, because you were. Perhaps you didn't mean to, and you believe the DIS to be accurate, but everybody would buy one if this were true! If you do return 50+mpg on average, you must be getting about 1,000 miles to a tank of diesel! A stretch to believe I assure you! As far as...

    New to Audi and looking at an A6 3.0 TDi

    Sorry, but that is utter bull! The 2.7TDI officially only does about 44mpg extra urban and my later 3.0TDI will at best return about 49MPG if I drive like Miss Daisy is in the back! I would always recommend the 3.0TDI, and the earlier 233bhp model will be comfortable at a remap upto about...
