    Headliner

    Really good to hear this, I got someone to trim mine in Alcantara a year ago and they made a right pigs ear of it (the alcantara is coming off, it’s creased in places and they also broke my windscreen!!! Got my money back at least..) so I’ve got to replace the headliner and the pillars in the...

    Headliner swap out!

    I think the idea is you use several pieces of strap ideally or clothesline if you’re careful, make a few wraps to very slightly bend it. I haven’t done it but I will do at some point so if you do it first I’d be interested to hear about it! I’ve spoken to 2 or 3 car interior folk who seemed...

    Headliner swap out!

    Sorry I didn't see the reply, you can get them out through the boot if you are careful, so I am informed.

    Help Please Replacing lower control arms - torquing after driving up on a ramp

    Oh I'm literally driving on to them in my garage. I presume there is no issue doing this but wanted to be sure :) I mean actual ramps as well, e.g. these:

    Help Please Replacing lower control arms - torquing after driving up on a ramp

    I'm more wondering if it's ok to drive the car up ramps without having the arms torqued at the time. I can't see why not, but then again I'm not a mechanic! I think I will only use ramps on the front.

    Help Please Replacing lower control arms - torquing after driving up on a ramp

    TL;DR - can I replace the control arms, tighten (but not torque) the bushings, reattached the wheels, drop the car, drive it on a set of ramps, then torque them up whilst on the ramp? Hey all, I've got to do some lower control arms. Admittedly this is on a Q5 but I'm posting here as I know...

    High beam assist retrofit

    Mine is on early and it’s as slow as anything. Other drivers will flash me before it reacts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    High beam assist retrofit

    This. It’s crap. I have it and I keep meaning to research how to disable it. It’s slow and useless. Every other assist on the car is awesome but high beam assist is terrible! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Service whatever-point checklist

    Don’t suppose anyone has a PDF of all the things Audi check as part of their however-many point checklist when doing a major service? I think they may check the same things during an MOT and oil change service too, I think they call it a health check. Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help Please Eibach Sportlines issue

    The OP is talking of an imbalance between near side and off side though, not front and rear, they should be level surely without any tinkering? Funnily enough I changed my front control arms and I have an imbalance of about the same length, not sure why. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Speed cameras - now noise cameras !

    Then they’d get fined in the same way though, whether it’s factory or not they’re still breaking the rules right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help Please Replace one or all control arms?

    Following up on this one (sorry I still need to do a write-up, 2 young kids and busy work are making this hard), I noticed a slight clunking recently in certain situations (seems to be when turning right on a roundabout but it’s a bit random). It’s not particularly alarming and I can’t see...
