    Please Need help with wiring new aftermarket headunit

    Depends which sound system is fitted to the car as standard. In my B7 the Rear speakers are controlled via the subwoofer unit located in the right hand side of the boot space. So the signals sent from an aftermarket head unit are interrupted and are much lower output - you can get around this...

    Coolant

    I’ve had no issues with loosing coolant on a BUL - have you had any work done to the coolant system, could’ve been an air pocket that has finally cleared in the heating matrix? Are you still getting good hot air out of the vents?

    1.9tdi engine won't start

    Sounds like the battery has given up the ghost. Starter motors requires a huge amount of current from the battery to start. A complete drain and regular over discharge cycles can damage a battery no matter of the age. If you’ve got a volt meter, put it across the terminals to see what voltage...

    Today, I rekindled my affection for the bus. Last year I bought a weekend French mistress as I’d been missing a bit of the thrill of a hot hatch. A 2008 Renaultsport Megane R26... which is a firecracker! And I love it. I’ve Been slowly doing bits to get her up to spec. After tucking her away...

    I replaced the snub nose mount for a poly bushed yellow powerflex... it made the ride much firmer, which for spirited driving is super, but everyday comfort is impacted. So I think I’ll be going OEM for the others.

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Yeah I assumed it would be a bit early Rob, the old one had the coating intact across the face which was a good sign - I changed it 2 years ago so had a reminder on my phone pop up... so for £45 it’s a job done for another 30k now. As the old girl is on 113k miles now I’m looking at keeping...

    I’ve heard about some cold start issues with a lumpy idle, I’m sure you could have it mapped out. Is there anything else you’ve heard of? I just think the flaps into the inlet are such a impedance for airflow at higher inlet flow, the turbulence created by these runner flaps must be a...

    It’s a kit I bought a long time ago https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/322699742225 But I just haven’t had the time to fit it, work has been mental the last 8 months... lockdown has sent people crazy. I must get round to doing the cam follower too, it’s coming up due for a change and that’s the...

    Nice, I have the kit to do that... but not the time to change it over. How much of a big job is it? Much difference in engine response?

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    I installed a powerflex poly snubnose, yellow one so a little more compliant. Took a little while to settle, at first ride was horrid.
