    Audi A6 media interface

    There's a thought, is there much upgrade work required to fit the reversing camera? Seen this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Beat-CAM-AU1-Audi-A6-04-Colour-Rear-View-Reversing-Camera-Number-Plate-Light-/171231720037?hash=item27de34b265:g:QVsAAOxyVLNS6shi &...

    Dashboard warning symbols

    I just bought a 2.7 tdi Le Mans and car was driving smooth all the way back from Liverpool to Glasgow. Stopped at Gretna services, loaded up with some diesel and back on the road. Got about 15 miles in that storm and the engine management light appeared. Got her home and pushed the check...

    Audi A6 media interface

    Took your advice, got a model with MMI high, was a bit gutted that once phone was connected it didn't allow media streaming but have been pricing up tune2air for the glove box input. Can you give advice on upgrading for DAB and freeview TV?

    Audi A6 media interface

    So the interface pics I uploaded, the one with the (name, tel, car & setup) buttons missing will likely be the MMI basic and therefore not have the Bluetooth connectivity? TV option would be ideal, seen that you can get the headrests upgraded to have screens for the kids! On that note for the...

    Plasti Dip Chrome - Why Did They Give Us Chrome In The First Place!

    Not the chrome, read up plenty in that and it seems to be near impossible without causing damage and a headache! Lol. It's the black plastic triangle in the corner, want to get it off to properly wrap it with carbon fiber instead of cutting to the edges n hoping it dosent peel off

    Plasti Dip Chrome - Why Did They Give Us Chrome In The First Place!

    Tried to take off the plastic corner pieces as faded a bit and was going to wrap them carbon fiber aswell but took off plastic interior piece to see about fitting at back but I can't see anything to suggest I can remove it, please someone tell me I ain't going to have to remove door cards to get...

    Plasti Dip Chrome - Why Did They Give Us Chrome In The First Place!

    Trial an error i think, ive done the drivers side with tape and removed the plasti dip. Going to re-do the corner piece though, messed the corner up and its coming away a bit. Carbon fiber is looking mint though especially cause the whole panel comes off i was able to get wrap right in behind it...

    Plasti Dip Chrome - Why Did They Give Us Chrome In The First Place!

    Yeah I seen that aswell, it's tempting me cause you then get to decide if you want Matt black or if carbon print could look the part? Seen a guy who done trim Matt black then carbon print on plastic pillar and corner piece, look subtle n very smart! I'll get some pics taken tomorrow morning...
