    Is a dreaded plenum chamber blockage the cause of my problem?

    I've owned my B6 1.9tdi for almost a year now, faultless driving with no problems... until we returned from a 2700mile European holiday.

    Damping adjustable coilovers on an Avant

    Hi everyone! I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a (hopefully) easy questions I have... With coilovers I'm used to running them on cars like Golfs and Corrados, where the strut top is accessible within the car (rears) or under the bonnet (fronts). However from reading the B6 coilover...
