    I have these all round on the girlfriends A4 Sline. Not driven at great length, but so far - they have impressed me.

    Engine Mount Locations - 2.0TDi Quattro

    Where can I download it from? :uhm: Im in the trade, but 'not on floor' so to speak - so getting meaningful stuff like that is hassle at times. Its a 2.0 TDi 140 Quattro. Im hoping the knock/virbration is a dodgy mount, and with the A3's reputation of poor mounts it is a likely cause.

    Engine Mount Locations - 2.0TDi Quattro

    All, The girlfriends car has developed a slight vibration under certain loads, and as the DMF has been ruled out as the cause I want to check the condition of the engine and gearbox mounts as I am led to believe these are a weak point on the 8P? Can anyone provide an exploded diagram or...

    Facelifted A3 - Handbrake Failure

    Do you have a front centre armrest?? Its an obstruction 10% of the time, and this can restrict the 'pull' on the handbrake, thus not properly applying it.

    Bilberry Wheel cleaner

    Im yet to try Bilberry, although I am using Espuma Revolution and it has fantastic results. Highly recommended, and the dilution ration is 1:8 iirc

    Delivery Day Dilemma

    The plate will account for circa 1.5% - 3% at resale. Not masses of money, but money nonetheless. If it were me? I would be waiting and having it registered September 1st. Remember, the plate dates the car. It maybe as new as the one with an 09 plate, but wearing a 58 detracts somewhat. Wait.

    Heavy Vibration at 2.2 Thousand Revs

    After some more digging around and speaking with some industry people, I am starting to think my judder is down to the dual mass flywheel failing. Diagnosis isnt confirmed as yet, although symptons all point to a common fault. I work in the fleet industry, and have exposure to 100's of...

    Heavy Vibration at 2.2 Thousand Revs

    But my car is standard and the symptons are the same for me??! Which means your theory is flawed.

    Heavy Vibration at 2.2 Thousand Revs

    Mine does it ever so slightly at the same revs. 2006 A3 2.0 TDi Quattro...& standard. Seems like you can accelerate through the vibration. Im thinking an engine mount tbh, but not had a real chance to poke about as yet.

    Got a new Golf Mk6, disappointing..

    harsh assesment imo. The mk6 Golf is evolutionary (as always) but its still come a long way in terms of refinement, build quality and materials imo. Funny thing is, the mk6 appears to be commanding a premium (used values) over the A3 and 1 series - madness.

    I hate my boss

    One of the directors here has recently taken delivery of his new A5 2.0 TDi 170ps Manual S-Line. Black on black, 20" RS4 Style wheels, MMI + most of the options. Very nice car, but rides like a bitch on the wheels.

    Which A5?

    Nice purchase, although I would have chosen the auto box over a manual, especially with the 3.0 TDi engine. Not only for driving pleasure (imo), but for resale too. I have had a 3.0 TDi SE and it is without doubt one of the best cars I have driven in a long time. A colleague has a new 2.0 TDi...

    S-Line 2 Piece 18" Wheels

    Just done that this lunchtime. It appears that the air is escaping from various places; - where the dish meets the centre piece - From the bolt holes I have been onto Audi customer services who are looking into the issue and checking to see if it is a wear and tear item, or if it is covered...

    S-Line 2 Piece 18" Wheels

    Will do. The only beauty of this whole episode (price aside) is that if the rim is cracked, you dont have to replace the whole wheel. Joy.:faint:
