    Changing up

    I am seriously considering changing from my S3 to a fairly new RS4 are there any significant running costs to take into account account. Build quality aside, why an RS4 and not a M3. Your advise is very welcome and appreciated.

    Am I going nuts?

    Help me please! About two weeks ago I came home from playing badmington, locked the car as usual. The next morning went to the car and the drivers window was fully open.

    Revo DAB Adaptor

    Anyone got one of these or knows someone that has. I want DAB in the car, but I do not want to replace the original unit as I think it looks good in the car. You can plug this unit into the existing stereo and you can receive DAB broadcasts. Here's the link:

    Found this item on Ebay. It is a spray you apply to your number plates, it is supposed to refect the light back at a camera and your registration cannot be read. Has anyone had experience of this? Does it...

    What next?

    Been putting in some overtime and have some spare cash. I call it spare cause if the wife knew what I intend spending it on that's what she would go. I was wondering what is the next performance upgrade for the car. Already have a re-map and 18" rims, so I'm looking for the most gain for the...

    Samco Hoses

    I am thinking about changing all my standard hoses over to Samco hoses, anyone got them fitted. If so what is the difference, I'm not convinced that they will make that much difference, but if you think they do I will fit them. Any opinions will be appreciated.

My drive drops from the road down to the house and the car was parked nose down. When I went to use it in the morning there was a pool of water in the passenger footwell. I...

Tried to get the car looked at by the local Audi specialist, but he could not arrange a courtesy car. The problem turned into a mis-fire last...
