    Import vat uk

    The whole thing, to anyone, literally anyone who could look beyond Farage's bell end and 'good ol' blighty will show them!' spirit, knew this was the case. It's considerably worse than having to pay more for some car parts, but this is what the UK general public voted for, and they've...

    To buy or not to buy?? Your advice please.

    I agree with the above. If you're not sure then there are plenty more cars in the sea, or something like that. The fault codes have the random pattern of a car that's maybe sat for a bit and the battery is not doing too good, really you'd want them cleared, run it for a while and see what comes...

    Fitting an Airtec Front Mount Intercooler?

    Is there a longer delay if you buy direct? Not a surprise if you buy a special order from a reseller.

    Fitting an Airtec Front Mount Intercooler?

    You bend the PAS cooler out the way with the airtec one, it's a bit crude. I bought (and probably still have somewhere) a later A6 PAS cooler which is both longer and mounts to the bottom of the airtec intercooler. A nicer solution than twisting the original.

    For Sale Genuine B8 S5 19" alloys - refurbished

    Recently professionally refurbished by Platinum Powdercoating Aberdeen in anthracite and never fitted since. Came off my s5 when I bought it and I was going to keep these as a winter set, but they're now nicer than the ones that I bought to replace them! Part number should be in the photos so...

    Wiper question

    If my wipers are on and I turn the car off, the wipers don't come back on until they're put back to off on the stalk and then turned on again, if that makes sense? Is this a fault or a feature, and if the latter, how do I change it so that they resume from where they were set?

    Dash cam power from overhead panel?

    Super easy to piggyback off an ignition live fuse in the fusebox and run it up the A pillar.

    Idle Speed - TFSi. Can it be altered?

    Have you looked into PCV issues? Mine was a bit like that before I replaced the valve and after it was spot on at 800.

    Absolutely, but not when it comes to insurance settlements :( What's up next, Ricky?

    Soo this happened yesterday...

    Have you got or can you get a hire car through insurance? If it's through theirs then you should. I found that sped things up when my Mustang was written off and they spent weeks low-balling me before I requested a hire car. That said, you can't expect any more than top book price, that's one...

    Dream car giveaways.

    That's all it is, really. Sorry, I know you weren't having a dig but I just wanted to say there's a lot of overheads in what they do, especially if a car ends up needing work before it can be given away. I wish I'd thought of it or had the capital to do something similar before though. I've a...

    Dream car giveaways.

    Great bunch of lads :D I'm obviously quite fond of them but having watched almost every draw for a few months I've built up an appreciation that it's not quite as simple as flipping a car and pocketing 10 grand. Your 8-10k profit is based on: - Buying a car near WBAC prices when, of the cars...

    New owner of a very (very) high mileage 2006 Avant

    If it were me, I'd be measuring the lobe on the intake cam. It's the right age to have had a chocolate one fitted and if it's worn through the follower then I can't see how it's possible that it's not damaged.
