    Break caliper?

    I got the same callipers as yours so it’s not aftermarket, there just everyday small brakes. More importantly what’s going on with the paint job.

    Control arm bushing creaking

    Mate, you’ve got to take pictures of the rubber in the bushings, not the control arm itself or the metal sleeve which the bushing is adhered to. Having said that it’s hard to tell if a bushing is perished or failed by studying a photograph if it only has a slight tear etc. Ofcourse if there...

    Leaking s tronic box

    £1500 seems a lot! I had a gearbox oil leak + gearbox errors (not shifting into P) - replaced the gearbox sump pan + new gasket + S tronic oil service. It costed me about £650. 2 years later there is misting on the gearbox oil pan again around the seal. I’ve been told it’s a slight misting...

    Ambient lighting fitted

    Looks great, and OEM/ authentic. The standard speakers are awful and certainly need an upgrade. Be sure to include the led strip on the speaker grill as well like the genuine B&O.

    EBC redstuff brakes & disks upgrade for my b9

    I see, the last time I bought pagids we’re on my A6, I’ve bought 2 full sets of pagid pads in 2015 and 2018. They worked perfectly no squeaks wobbles etc, albeit with brake dust. I was considering them for my A4, but went with the brembos as the reviews were good, I couldnt justify buying...

    EBC redstuff brakes & disks upgrade for my b9

    Deer collision

    A good chunk of that 4.2k would be the matrix lights no doubt. don’t worry yourself over it too much, animals will be animals. I once had a bird go splat on my windscreen on the m5 near Gloucester or so. Let’s just say I was keeping up with traffic … I had to pull over to wipe the remains...

    Winter wheels for B9 S Line?

    I think the s line or 190hp models come with bigger brakes. For those who have fitted 17inch wheels you should clarify if you have the newer style 4 pot brakes or the older ones

    Tyre sidewall damage – Replace?

    If it’s a new and expensive tyre look for a local place that does hot vulcanised tyre repair. It’ll cost about 10-20£ and will repair back to new.

    Misfire on New 35TDI?

    You sure it’s a misfire? Any engine codes? These cars are very advanced and can usually pick up a slight misfire. Maybe it’s just changing the EGR valve position.
