    Genuine Audi heavy duty or semi rigid boot liner pics?

    Ive got the heavy duty O.E. one ( came with the car ) . It is a robust heavy duty moulded ABS or Polyprop. piece of kit, deep sides, great for transporting rubble to the tip or slabs from the local builders merchant etc. Will certainly keep split leaking bags of garden rubbish under control ...

    Quattro on a two wheel brake tester ??

    The MOT station I use won't / wouldn't test either my previous B7 Quattro , my current B8 Quattro, nor my Charade Detomaso (FWD only ) but has limited slip diff on front axle. They use the decelerometer on road. I guess all guidance regarding use of roller type brake testers is open to...

    OEM brake upgrade from 2.0 TFSI quatrro, S Line saloon, B8.5

    I would have gone with Pagid or O.E. discs ( see what TPS could offer ! ) and Redstuff pads had I just remained with original 320 mm dia. set up. The only extra is the carriers @ £75 - £80 a side. The only sensible way to do this is swap all 3 components ( disc, pad & carrier ) in one go. You...

    OEM brake upgrade from 2.0 TFSI quatrro, S Line saloon, B8.5

    Yup, the carrier/bracket is different, I've listed, what I believe to be correct, the Audi and TRW part number for the carrier in my original thread. (3.0 Tdi Avant front brake ‘mild’ upgrade time ) Picked up Pagid discs from EuroCarParts with their 50% off discount code, will wait for a good...

    OEM brake upgrade from 2.0 TFSI quatrro, S Line saloon, B8.5

    In my case, i need to replace pads and disc anyway, only the caliper brackets are the extra cost to move to S4 345mm dia disc. I would probably have gone the route of new stock 320 mm discs and EBC Redstuff pads if, to upgrade, something like a caliper change was required. That’s my rationale...

    OEM brake upgrade from 2.0 TFSI quatrro, S Line saloon, B8.5

    I'm currently going down a similar route, think your Tfsi has same size front brake set up as my 3.o Tdi Quattro , would be worth checking if they are as this might be a way forward : 3.0 Tdi Avant front brake ‘mild’ upgrade time

    3.0 Tdi Avant front brake ‘mild’ upgrade time

    Cheers @Ginge247 for the feedback. Good to hear it’s a worthwhile upgrade. @tech838 ......to the best of my knowledge and understanding, yes - as long as you have a car running the TRW 320 mm dia. brakes up front. ( 3.0 tdi Quattro and I think 2.0 Tfsi Quattro, but check first !! Believe...

    3.0 Tdi Avant front brake ‘mild’ upgrade time

    Good morning...... Time to do the front brakes as discs quite lipped and pads around 70% worn. Was looking to carry out a mild upgrade at the same time along the line of going from the factory 320 mm dia. disc to 345 mm dia. S4 disc with Red Stuff pads ( doing a fluid change at the same time )...

    Red footwell LEDs

    I too, went with red footwell LEDs with the interior lamp set from @t8ups - colour match is perfect match with the dash and switchgear illumination. Also have the ambient interior lighting enabled, set at about 30% , nice and subtle, looks very o.e.

    Avant Towbar Electrics Kits

    Thanks Karl, interesting comparison between the Tiguan and Mazda CX-5, does the B 8 have the T-esp from factory in its stability program and thus just requires the correct coding to activate do you know ? And thanks again Matt, going to phone Ryder and PF Jones today and get further info.
