    Headlight lens cover replacement

    There are a couple of video that show the plastic (glass?) cover being removed with the aid of heat gun, so will go down that route. @quattrogone the bird is brown bread, unfortunately. I'm fortunate it avoided any panels, the wind shield and yes the grille. Although the grille would have...

    Headlight lens cover replacement

    A bird decided to fly past me on the A1(M) at 70MPH and i've ended up with a smashed lens cover. Far from ideal but no panels were damaged and the windscreen is intact. It does mean that i need to find a replacement lens cover, but i can't seem to find an original on eBay or FB for my B8.5...

    Audi A5 Coupe Upgrades (2.0l 170BHP TDI, 2012)

    It's a bit old school and it might not be considered particularly elegant, but you could drill some holes in the existing airbox. Add to that a panel filter (as opposed to a full replacement air box/filter) and you will have more oxygen going into the engine...

    B8 Dash Speakers Upgraded

    Hi mate, I spotted this bit in your post. Have you confirmed that the rears are 16.5cm? If so, I might upgrade my fronts andnreplace the crappy factory with my current fronts, if so. Which Focals/Audisons are you going for? I imagine they're costing a couple of quid.

    B8 Dash Speakers Upgraded

    Unless your car has the very basic sound system from factory, I'd wager you have an amp. Check the left hand cubby hole in the boot. I'll take a pic of mine tomorrow. Adding an aftermarket amp will really maximise these speakers you're fitting, but you'll need to fit speaker line-in to the new...

    B8 Dash Speakers Upgraded

    So you've connected the new speakers to existing wiring...which I assume is connected to the factory amp? The difference must be night and day, the factory 'Audi Sound System' speakers are of poor quality, I have found. I ended up disconnecting the centre and RL tweets in favour of tweeters...

    B8 Avant door speaker upgrade (non-B&O)

    Here are a couple of images. I've taken a few more of similar angles if you want them. Looks as though the original plastic housing has been cut back and this wooden ring has been mounted on top. The wooden mount allows for the 16.5cm speaker to be fitted. Hope that helps.

    B8 Avant door speaker upgrade (non-B&O)

    From memory, i think the fitter may have mounted a wooden rim on the existing Audi speaker housing - give me a couple of hours and i'll upload somoe pics. What's the main issue you're facing - that you can't find 20cm speakers to replace like for like?

    B8 Avant door speaker upgrade (non-B&O)

    Originals appear to be 20cm. I had mine replaced with 16.5CM Hertz components an umber of years ago. It's was done by a shop so i don't know what adaptors where used, though i'll take a pic when i next have the door card off, if that's any use. Might even be today as I have to refit a bit...

    2007 S5 V8 seat removal

    Depends on the repair! But yes, 4 x torx spline bolts (M10, I think). Once you've unbolted, it will be easier to reach the blocks for power (red), movement, airbags... Don't forget to lower the seat to its lowest setting - this will reduce the overall size of it. Maybe move the seat to its...

    S5 or A5 quattro? Buying advice

    On the 2.0 TFSI engine, I don't have the oil consumption issue, which im over the moon with. I didn't know about this until after I bought the car, so fortunately there. Somehow my early 2012 engine (CDNC) has the modified piston rings(?). This shouldn't be an issue as long as you go for 2013...

    S5 or A5 quattro? Buying advice

    I have a 2012, B8.5, A4 2.0 TFSI, remapped and it's plenty fast. But it's no S4. If I knew then what I know now, I'd have gone for the S4 with the 3.0 V6 supercharged engine - the same as the S5 you're considering. They are meant to respond very well to remaps, from 333bhp to the 4XX BHP...
