    A4 B7 Black Optics Pack

    Does anyone know if you can retrofit a black optics pack? I've seen many grill surrounds changed - but I wondered if its easy to change the window surrounds to the black optic parts as well? If so are there any garages offering it? Grateful for any advice!

    Glow Plug Light Flasjing and lots more problems

    Just thought I'd pass on the knowledge from my cars latest wobbler: My 3.0 TDI had a little fit whilst out on the road, power was limited, glow plug light started flashing. Went home parked up and looked on the net for advice. Found no specific answers, some people said its a symptom of the...

    2008 A6 3.0 Tdi Quattro Avant Lemans - road noise

    Hello again Tuddie, To be honest I have maintained between 42 and 44 at the front and between 38 and 40 at the back. Wear seems OK, I changed my rears 1 month ago, they weren't new when I got the car and they have done over 25,000 so I'm well pleased with that. I bought Falken FK452s again as I...

    Le Mans 18" Tyre Options

    Thats a good question... One thing to consider is that a new tyre has 8mm tread depth and you can use them until 1 mm is left, that's an overall difference of 14mm in diameter from a new to worn tyre..... enough to cover your worries about an 8mm difference?

    Poor MPG. Advice needed

    These 170bhp TDI engines used to give 50+ mpg before the DPF was fitted as standard, there is quite a lot of posts and history on these engines, the DPF factor and claimed/actual mpgs throughout Audi websites.

    Tyre pressures on 19's

    From personal experience, my 255/35/19s have to kept at the makers recommended pressures, 44/38, otherwise they will not wear correctly. You soon get used to the bone-jarring, wince-inducing, spine-smashing, noisy unforgiving ride.

    Refurbished my alloys and kerbed already... GRRRR!!!!!!!

    I had 40 profiles on my A4 2.0T that had an extended sidewall ridge that was supposed to protect alloys - they didnt. The forces of a car going against a kerb are just too great, the sidewalls are pushed away by the kerb, the best they can do is hopefully make a noise so that you can make...

    2008 A6 3.0 Tdi Quattro Avant Lemans - road noise

    Regarding 255/35/19 tyre pressures, there is quite a history of people thinking 44 at the front is too high, I was told to run them at 38 all round.... 10 months later, low tyre tread depth, time to change I could actually see that the outsides had worn faster than the insides - a clear...
