    Brake Conversion?

    Piece of pie to do. Get yourself a set of discs from the 3.0 B6 A4. Pop them on and the TT carriers and drop your existing caliper in with a pad of your choice.

    1998 S4 wing mirror plastic replacement

    I seem to recall there being 2 screws on the underside of the mirror. After doing mine I recommend taken them off the car and leave them soaking in penetrating oil over night as mine were ******** to undo. Once the screws are out the cap just wiggles free. Don't remember if I removed the glass...

    1.8 TQS project now driving

    To be honest the standard item is pretty robust. Mine saw me sail past 180,000 miles and it was the flywheel that failed rather than the clutch. I got the car on about 80,000 and chipped it straight away to 190bhp. It ran like this until about 160,000 miles where I then gave it an extra 50bhp...

    A4 b5 avant 1.8t project

    Don't need loads of thread just enough for the pinch to secure the ball joints. Don't forget to copper grease the bolt as they love to sieze up nice and solid

    A4 b5 avant 1.8t project

    They do come up. Have found the B5 group on Facebook really good. Managed to get carbon trim clips and gear surround from there

    A4 b5 1.8t gearbox mount

    We just bought a new standard one then filled it with Silkaflex. Seems to work well with the 034 Street density engine mounts

    A4 b5 avant 1.8t project

    You need prefacelift side mounts and crash rams. iirc you need a washer or 2 to get it to sit right. So I'm told. I converted mine to face-lift front and will now be going backwards to get my S4 bumper on

    A4 b5 avant roof bars removal

    My old 1.6 avant didn't have them and it looked a bit naff to be honest. I wanted to retrofit them but sold the car and got my saloon after the need for an estate went. Would post a pic but Photobucket have broken the Internet

    To anyone who's fitted 1 piece OEM Valeos to their pre-facelift B5

    From what I can see it is simply a case of extending the wires from the old to new position. The plug and wiring appears identical for the switch between pre and post face lift cars
