    Performance panel filter

    I put a Pipercross panel into my 3.2 and it messed up my MAF. Cleaned the MAF, put back the paper one, and it's been fine since. I didn't notice any performance or sound difference anyway

    Audi badge on bonnet rather than grille. Thoughts?

    The red one looks horrendous. Yellow one not much better (but better if I had to pick one). Cut your losses and do it again properly.

    2004 A3 3.2 - which rear brakes do I have?

    You're absolutely right. With the help of a torch and a mirror I found there is VW AG TRW stamped on the caliper. Thanks very much

    2004 A3 3.2 - which rear brakes do I have?

    Thanks for the reply but I'm not sure you read the question. I'm only after brake pads, but I'm told that the part I need will depend on the type of caliper/rotor I have.

    2004 A3 3.2 - which rear brakes do I have?

    I am looking at some ceramic rear brake pads as I'm getting tired of cleaning my wheels all the time. Apparently the 3.2 could either have Lucas or TRW rear brakes and this will affect which pads I need. Is there any way to tell without removing the wheel?

    Thanks mate! Eibach kit is the 35mm kit but as the 3.2 is already a bit lower the drop was about 15-20mm. Wasn't sure I'd gone low enough at first but I am very happy with it now.

    The CT53-AU02 is for the Bose system. Using the fader is not the solution. You need this: The problem is common. I spent a lot of time and money and went through two other harnesses...

    Bilstein B12 suspension kit (TDi quattro) short review

    Good review. I had the same kit fitted a couple of weeks ago and I would agree with everything you've said. It's not super low but its a good trade off between low(er) and practical. Having said that when I see pics of cars with the Sportlines there is a part of me that wouldn't mind another 10mm

    Great write up mate. Thanks for all the info. Does look like a lot of work but I really like the outcome. When/if I decide to do it myself, I'll drop you a line to make sure I'm buying the right RS4 replica.
