    Going up a tyre profile size

    Thanks all. The 275 option is interesting. This is running Audi Rs4 20's - do Audi give any latitude re.width or should I just stick with what was on them when I got them and keep my wife away from the car ...

    Going up a tyre profile size

    Hi thanks for the quick reply. so does the move from 30 to 35 make a big difference to speedo - would that be faster or slower? I guess I'll stick with 30's. Thought the extra meat in the walls might help.

    Going up a tyre profile size

    Hi all, my wife managed to kerb my left side A5 Cab alloys today -last time she gets the car :( Now looking at repairs to two badly chewed wheels - but worse still, in the process she managed to tear into the rear tyre. I had intended to update the two fronts very soon but the backs were still...

    Ma mirror no dipper

    In for its service today at Audi, they said it couldnt be coded. Any one done a retrofit on this? I recall my BMW cab had this feature, very useful to keep the alloys tidy

    New tyres needed

    My Cab is nearing new black hoop time for the rears. I'm thinking of going for the Vredsteins and wondered what you all thought. Looking for that nirvana of decent grip, modest cost and long life, of course.

    Heated mirrors need coding?

    Cheers folks. Just for info the mirrors were £20 a side from ebay with combined postage I thought that was a good deal, they look identical to OE, i let you know how they perform.

    I'm getting a steady 45 mpg at 70mph with cruise on, more than pleased with that. 50 plus if i can stand to hold her at 50.

    Heated mirrors need coding?

    Hi all, decided to upgrade to heated mirrors. Prising the standard unheated ones off, I was relieved to find i have the two wires required. Plug in and put it all back together, but don't appear to be working when the rear window demister is switched on. They feel cold to the touch and i put...

    De badged!

    Re. the removal, its just a case of warming the badges gently with a hairdryer. As the metal letters warms up it allows you to gently prise them away. I used my nails and a credit card, no screwdrIvers!. Then some lighter fuel or similar to take away the residue. You can't tell they were there.

    Retrofit PDC too quiet

    Just had PDC retrofitted to my B7 cab. But you can hardly hear the bleeper, which is currently in the rear quarter somewhere. Its a genuine audi retrofit kit. Has anyone else experienced this, and where best to site the bleeper in the car?
