    Remap tomorrow

    They don't take the ECU out at R Tech for AGU's, they just put a jumper cable on it. Nick at R tech told me most other places don't now how to do this so just take the the ECU out instead.

    You should have taken it to R Tech, they have worked out a way of remapping AGU's without having to remove ecu .

    Vortex exhaust?

    For my 1.8t A3 I got quoted £500 for a cat back vortex system with hidden tailpipe, it was £50 extra for an exhaust tip. This was at Torque Exhaust in Enfield. Three of my friends have the this exhaust on TT, GTI Golf and A31.8t and it sounds EVIL on all 3 of them especially once the cars been...

    The ride is good, definatley better than standard understeering setup, the front needs to be lowered by another 5-10mm and the back is already wound all the way down. I need to get 5mm spacers to push the back wheels out but overall im happy with it ........... wes

    Starting/idle problems

    No- after cleaning TB and putting it back together, turn the iginition on but dont start the car, you'll hear the throttle body realigning itself, leave it for five minutes and then start the car. It takes the ECU a couples miles of driving to sort itself out but you'll notice a big difference...

    Starting/idle problems

    Hi if I were you i'd check/change all four sparkplugs if this hasn't been done for a while and then take off and clean your throttle body with some carb cleaner, you'll be suprised at the amount of carbon and **** in there. When my revs were hunting up and down I cleaned the...

    Coilover fiting!

    The back is straight forward and will take less than than an hour , the front is more of a pain it would be a lot easier if you have the spreader tool though to get the old shock out . I would definately do the back of the car first and then you can spend the majority of your day on the...

    Found rust on your roof?

    Got my car back today from Chingford Audi after 3 weeks, they painted the roof, and blended into the rear quarters, they also polished out an annoying scuff mark on the side of the car. I really can't see the repair they did a really good job. Got my car booked into my bodyshop for next week...
