    Anybody fancy my 18" Cades Berns? (Mesh design - similar to HRE/VMR)

    8Jx18" ET42 Only been on car for a couple of months. 3 wheels are mint, 1 has some minor kerbing due to a stupid underground carpark. They're fitted with 225/40/18 Michelins. 2 have got a fair bit of life left. 1 is pretty near the limit, 1 is worn out. £400 and they're yours. Form an orderly...

    Leather armrest

    I've got one kicking about... who wants it? It's got phone prep in it, but not a problem to ignore this. I never got round to fitting it to my car, and won't do now. It came from a 6 month old crash damaged S3, so looks as good as new.

    Rust on bottom of front doors :(

    Whilst my car was being treated to d2detail today, we noticed some rust on the bottom of the front doors. Is this a common problem on the A3, and has anybody else had this? The car has FASH, so I'll be taking it down to Northampton Audi on Friday for them to send a claim over to Audi UK under...

    Just had my car detailed today. Looks awesome! *** NEW PICS ATTACHED. WOOOOOO!!! ***

    My mate Matt recently set up his detailing company. Although a relatively new venture, he has 10 years experience as a sprayer in a bodyshop, so knows his way around a rotary polisher and how to make the best of paintwork. He's also built a number of show-winning cars, and has an attention to...

    Does anybody have any twin-grills knocking about?

    With all the people swapping the twin-grill to the facelift single grill, I'm guessing there must be a pile of early grills sitting under beds / in sheds / in garages / in gardens / waiting to be thrown away....

    New rims finally on (warning: rubbish photos)

    After buying these over 3 months ago and getting them painted up (thanks N8 for all your help), I've finally got them fitted! Nothing revolutionary, but the flat grey finish makes them look a bit different to the regular finish. You can't see in the pics, but the mirrors are painted to match...

    Shakey shakey

    Evenin' all. My car has is currently seriously shaking under acceleration. As soon as I ease off the throttle it goes away, but under acceleration it's barely driveable. I'm going to try to book it into the garage in the morning, but wondering if anybody has experienced something similar? I'd...

    Found out why my ESP light was staying on

    Because my MAF has failed. Now why didn't I think of that? :banghead:

    ESP light then Engine Management light

    I was driving home the other night, put my foot down on a clear stretch of road, and as the revs hit around 5,000, it stopped accelerating quite suddently and the ESP light came on. The next morning it was still on and after a few miles the engine management light came on to join it. Now both...

    New rims

    After selling my CH's, I needed some wheels to run around on until my new "Summer" wheels are ready. I went for 18" Cades Bern's. It's a new wheel, but really pleased with how it looks on these

    What are my rims worth?

    I've got a set of OE S-Line 5 spokes (RS6 stylee). They're all straight, but do have some minor scuffs and kerbing so could do with a refurb. Any idea what these should sell for? Cheers, Pete

    Spare mirror covers?

    Hi, does anybody have a spare pair of mirror covers gathering dust, getting in the way, waiting for somebody to come along and ask on the forum? If so, today's your lucky day, as THIS IS THAT VERY POST! Colour doesn't matter, and a few scuffs etc. will be ok. If you're able to hook me up, and...

    Got my car back :o)

    After having half the engine replaced, my car is back! If always felt a little hesitant pulling away in 1st, and is now incredibly responsive, almost feeling over sensitive! I never had any major issues with holding the engine at constant revs, but it always jumped slightly - it's now...
