    Service time!

    My 1.8t 190 Quattro has hit 70,000 miles, so its due a service. I always send my cars to a local specialist garage I have loads of faith in during winter, as I am not crawling around in minus 15 in the snow! So apart from the obvious oil and filter change, I would like the sludge pick up pipe...

    Hot at one side... Cold at other

    Ok so get in my car today to head to another depot of ours. I keep thinking its hot in the car so turn it down. but it remains warm. Any way to cut a long story short, cold air is happily blowing from the drivers side, and will change temperature with the climate control. However hot air is...

    Should my 190 Quattro have enough power to spin all 4 wheels?

    In light of Nutkin's recent find with his 190bhp Quattro only running 154bhp it has led me to worry more about mine. Now I knew from day 1 it would never be the same as my chipped Golf GTi turbo with 190bhp due to weight and 4 wheel drive. I did a 0-60 in my A4 using my iphone trip thing to...
