    AUDI S5 intermittent engine rattle

    Sorry I can't help, but it's definitely not a typical chain rattle, and if it was one of the chain guides you'd expect it all the time. Sounds almost like a stuck tappet. Is there a scenario it's most likely to appear? warm/cold?

    Advise on upper control arms

    What do you mean by the correct angle? My understanding was(is) the bolts should be torqued with the car on the ground, that's the correct angle.

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Looked at the B8 S5? Better looking car IMO and when I initially went looking for an S4 I was able to find S5s with more options and better condition for the same price.

    Import vat uk

    The whole thing, to anyone, literally anyone who could look beyond Farage's bell end and 'good ol' blighty will show them!' spirit, knew this was the case. It's considerably worse than having to pay more for some car parts, but this is what the UK general public voted for, and they've...

    To buy or not to buy?? Your advice please.

    I agree with the above. If you're not sure then there are plenty more cars in the sea, or something like that. The fault codes have the random pattern of a car that's maybe sat for a bit and the battery is not doing too good, really you'd want them cleared, run it for a while and see what comes...

    Fitting an Airtec Front Mount Intercooler?

    Is there a longer delay if you buy direct? Not a surprise if you buy a special order from a reseller.

    Fitting an Airtec Front Mount Intercooler?

    You bend the PAS cooler out the way with the airtec one, it's a bit crude. I bought (and probably still have somewhere) a later A6 PAS cooler which is both longer and mounts to the bottom of the airtec intercooler. A nicer solution than twisting the original.

    For Sale Genuine B8 S5 19" alloys - refurbished

    Recently professionally refurbished by Platinum Powdercoating Aberdeen in anthracite and never fitted since. Came off my s5 when I bought it and I was going to keep these as a winter set, but they're now nicer than the ones that I bought to replace them! Part number should be in the photos so...

    Wiper question

    If my wipers are on and I turn the car off, the wipers don't come back on until they're put back to off on the stalk and then turned on again, if that makes sense? Is this a fault or a feature, and if the latter, how do I change it so that they resume from where they were set?
