    oh dear

    To each their own I guess, but for my money that is just wrong on a great many levels.

    Part Numbers

    Hi guys. I bought a copy of ETKA from eBay but have lost the serial number, so can't get it to run. Doh! Can anyone look up a number for me please? 078 103 604 H Its a sump pan that I bought for my A4 but got the wrong one. Doh again! I need to know which models/engines it does fit so I can...

    Brake Servo Issue?

    How did I know that you would be first to answer! :laugh: Thanks dude. You don't think the servo sounds iffy then?

    Rear brakes and wheel bearings.

    Looks like taper bearings so just a hammer and suitable drift to drive out the races. A suitably sized socket is needed to put the races back in.

    Brake Servo Issue?

    Hi all, once again I find myself needing to call on your collective wisdom. I've had a trawl about with the search function and got some tips, but still missing a few bits of info. I did a track day at Silverstone on Sunday, the first in the A4 (1998 2.4 V6 saloon) and I found after about 3 laps...

    petrol prices in the uk

    Think I may have found a new record high. How does £2.82 a litre grab you? Admittedly it was 102 octane and it was onsite at Silverstone racetrack today, but surely thats just taking the pizz. Regular 95 octane was a more reasonable £1.43 a litre.

    Stupid sump plug question

    I find its easier to get a good straight grip on it with a good old fashioned spanner. If its really, really stuck you could try warming the sump pan a little as a last resort with a heat gun/blowtorch. Don't go mad though. And on a parallel note, if you have changed your sump pan for a new...

    Save the Nurburgring

    I have 3 trips organised so far this year, anyone is welcome to tag along. Another interesting point is that Kai Richter & Jorg Lidner in an effort to claw a few quid back have banned Ron Symons and all his employees/cars from the North Loop (blanket ban on RSR) obviousley endangering Rons...

    Local Meet ups. Midlands

    I may be able to make this assuming I can stop my A4 leaking oil! :banghead: Weekend of 29/30 would be better for me, but lets see what is good for everyone else. :thumbsup: Don't know Tamworth too well I'm afraid, so can't suggest a venue.

    Audis back in the BTCC

    Makes me laugh that does. I know in the grand scheme of motorsport BTCC is quite low budget, especially at the side of F1 and the like, but it makes me giggle to think that my entire car cost me less than a set of tyres for a touring car! :laugh: Looking forward to the new season though...
