    S4 Exhaust / manifold

    I have a new 3mm thick s4/rs4 manifolds.. Going to be tested but unlike the ebay ones these are properly thick and tubular more akin to the relentless v4 stature than the old v1/v2 which the current ebay ones resemble.

    Ko4 real or fake

    I would you suggest you find out if they build the turbos in house or buy them made up.. Its a big difference. From experience I wouldn't trust any turbo that was balanced and assembled in china. They do not go through the same quality controls. You buy a turbo from a company and you want to...

    Ko4 real or fake

    The majority of parts people fit to their engines are non genuine copied parts , so to think or say a turbo is any different it quite amusing.. Downpipes, intercoolers, valve springs, exhaust manifolds, pipework etc etc are all used and in majority of cases better than the originals. Just...

    loss of power 2.5 tdi quattro

    Almost guarentee vanes on the turbo have seized due to carbon build up. Common issue, had in on my current 2.5 quattro. Very easy to diagnose. Remove engine cover and the heat shield from the turbo. Get someone to start the car, while you watch the actuator rod, as the car starts you should...

    Why can't I sell my A4 Quattro??

    Yes cambelt was done at 80K so not really an issue. . New turbo, wheel bearings brakes all round so it's pretty square on the mechanics. Probably going to drop to 3k. Personally I think its a hell of a lot of motor for the money! But then I'm biased.

    Why can't I sell my A4 Quattro??

    The problem I found when trying to price it was that there wasn't that many around. The only others I found where 180,000miles + pretty average condition and still selling for about £1750. Then you look at the A4 2.5 Avants and they are all advertised for around the £4k mark, but then an engine...

    ABS Bleeding.

    Hi I've bleed a few cars using the ABS bleed function on VAGcom and can assure you it is as easy as it looks! Once you're into the right menu, it gives you instructions which you simply follow. It is best doing it with 2 people as one has to press the enter key on the laptop while the other...

    gearbox noise on 2.5Tdi V6 1999

    Are you sure it's the gearbox, the wheel bearing do go on these. Does it get quiter when you go round a corner? ie if you go round a right hand bend, the weight will come off the right side and the noise will soften, obviously vice versa on the left. If it does then it's the bearing.

    A4 2.5TDI Quattro Turbo removal

    How hard is it? More so the location and getting access to it and the bolts rather than actually undoing of everything.
