    EGR Cooler pipe snapped

    I have a 2012 B8.5 (Facelift) Audi A5 Sportback S-Line. Last night the EGR pipe that's attached to the exhaust manifold snapped. From what I can see online the part number is 03L131521AH? is this pretty standard across all the Audi range because this is the only part number I can find? thank you...

    Advice please on replacement 2.0TDi engine

    A friend of mine has blown his engine in his 2008 A4, it's an auto cvt. I know there's lots of variant's of this engine so my question is which one is going to be a direct replacement? The current damaged engine is the BPW type but ideally he like to drop the 170 version in. Is this a straight...

    Lowering Spring advice

    Just an update. I went for H&R 35mm in the end. Absolutely perfect drop for my S-Line and it feels so much better. Thank you everyone for their advice on this. Looking at spacers now, what's everyone using? I was thinking 15mm all round?

    Lowering Spring advice

    This is totally confusing. People are saying there’s a 20mm drop standard but your saying 45-50mm springs will be to low?

    Lowering Spring advice

    Looking at a 45-50mm spring then and by the sounds of it H&R are the boys to go for. Thanks folks

    Lowering Spring advice

    I only want to go 20mm I think, don’t want it to look too ‘modded’. I’ve read a couple of people say the H&M were too stiff and went for Eibach pro?

    Lowering Spring advice

    I have a facelift A5 sportback and am wanting to lower it slightly as it currently sits quite high. It is an S Line so am I right in thinking it already has a 10mm drop? I’m think 30mm springs but what is everyone else using? Are H&R and Eibach the most popular?

    A5 Sportback 2.0 TDI Quattro poor fuel consumption

    Unsure if it’s had the recall. It had a seized front brake calliper and faulty alternator when I bought it and put the bad mpg down to that. However having those jobs sorted it’s still as bad. I think I’ll get it in for diagnosing and oil, fillers etc change and take it from there. Thanks for...

    A5 Sportback 2.0 TDI Quattro poor fuel consumption

    So I’ve just sold my 2009 A4 Avant 170 2.0 tdi which I owned for 5 years. It would return around 44mpg of mixed driving and 53mpg on a motorway run. I’ve replaced it with a 2012 Facelift A5 sportback, again the 2.0 tdi but this time the Quattro. Now I know the Quattro has more moving parts but I...

    Help Please Replaced Rear Door lock still won't open

    My B8 Avant is having an issue with the offside rear door lock. It won't open from the outside handle so have replaced the lock mechanism but still no joy. Could it just be the handle that is faulty?
