    IronX & Tardis or Carpro 'Trix'

    Been a while since I've posted anything on here but as the summer is approaching it's almost time for a good 12 hour detail of my A4. So if you haven't already guessed from the title, should I stick with what I've always used (Tardis for the tar and IronX for the iron particles) or is carpro...

    costco dash cam?? any good?

    Sorry if this product has already been reviewed on here but could someone tell me what they think of this camera. As far as I can see the picture quality seems pretty good but just wondering if you can charge it up and then put it in the windscreen as I'd rather not have wires hanging out all...

    Rear view mirror 'dimming'

    Is it me or does anyone else's rear view mirror 'dimming/anti dazzle' do absolutely nothing at all? Had the car nearly a year and have never had this 'function' on a car before. I have tried quite a few times at night when someone with bright headlights is behind me to turn the button on the...

    werkstat or carpro quartz?

    Hi, Since I started my car cleaning obsession (fuelled by the detailing section of ASN!) I have always used blackfire products as a 'LSP' 'Blackfire All finish paint Protection' topped with 'Blackfire midnight sun paste wax'. This has always given me great results but I fancy a change, I've...

    1st gear judder

    I know this seems to be a common problem as it was the same with my old b7 and I've seen many threads relating to the infamous judder when pulling away in first gear, in some cases 2nd too! On my b7 it would only start happening after sitting in traffic for a while using the clutch a lot. I was...

    Lack of glovebox light!?

    I've had my b8 now for about 3 weeks and am loving it, I'm still like a kid with a new toy! I mentioned in a different post that I was shocked that there was no light in the glove box, so the other day whilst buying a few bits from Audi I asked how much a light for the glovebox would be,after...

    Guess the product.....

    I'm sure those of you who have used it are FULLY AWARE but yesterday I used this product for the first time and must say the smell of it has to be the most rancid, putrid, disgusting, horrendous, vile, rotten, stomach churning, pungent, nasty smell I have EVER smelt in all my born days! Also...

    steering off centre!?

    I picked up my new b8 last monday and must say I'm over the moon! However, yesterday I noticed the steering wheel ever so slightly off centre, towards the left. If I hold the steering wheel straight it will steer towards the left. It's not a major problem but it's not supposed to be like that so...

    Consistency of products/storage

    For some reason the consistency of my SRP is not how it should be, when applied to the pad it's not the creamy smooth consistency that it should be, it's all watered down (like the way oil would be when mixed with water) I give it a good shake but it stays the same. This has now become the same...

    Temperature gauge

    Ever since I've had my cambelt and water pump done (bout three months ago) the temperature gauge takes a lot longer to reach half way (90) and if for instance I'm sitting in traffic it will drop to below the quarter mark, and much quicker if I have the blower on. I used to warm the car up about...
