    Engine Management Light and Misfire - 2004 1.8T

    Alright chaps - been away for a while enjoying the Quattro when this morning I hit some niggles. Accelerating away from behind a turning car I noticed a light flash on the dash and some judder - at first I thought why the hell is the Traction Control kicking in, but when it did it again I...

    Wheel bolts - potentially stupid question!

    Morning lads, I'm not sure if this is a really dumb thing to ask, but I need to ask it anyway! I have 17's on my car at the mo (can be seen in seen in the link in my sig) and am hopefully going to pick up some 18" RS4 reps as replacement from ebay (ET35). But they have no bolts. Question is...

    "Tarting" about with the exterior....

    Whats everyones feelings on tarting about with the A4? Is it not the done thing on a "prestige" motor or is it all about personal taste and individuality. On my last 3 cars (Megane Sport, Cooper S, Panda 100HP), I've tried to make them all as individual as possible by some subtle styling...

    Aero wipers driving me mad!

    Guys, I had the wiper blades changed on my B6 1.8T as part of the MOT I had done before I bought it (Aero wipers). Ever since I have just not been able to get the passenger blade to give a clean wipe - drivers side is fine. I've tried all the adjustment I can think of at the arm, and the...

    Exhaust tips

    Guys, Have any of you just had your exhaust tips replaced rather than full systems or backboxes? I assume most people go for 100m diameter but just wondered what length of tip you had decided on with the quattro/S-Line rear Bumper? I dont want em poking too far! Cheers

    Price for Alloys

    Guys, I'm needing to sell the alloys that are coming on my Avant to fund purchase of new. They are 17"s from a 1.8T Quattro LE: Could do with a refurb as previous owner is (ahem) a careful lady. All the tyres are good though. Any ideas what I should be asking for these in the...

    Wheel opinions please?!

    Trying to decide on some wheels to go on the avant when I get it on Saturday. I've totally gone of RS4/6 new style reps as they just seem to be everywhere and I've had to just resign myself to the fact that I can't afford a quality BBS LM rep (all the ones in my range seem to be a graphite...
