    Pad/Disc replacing Front & Rear

    Had my local tyre shop do a full Brembo replacements for my fronts for £230. Rears would be a bit less. Took them just over an hour. Why do it yourself?

    Rust Forming Already???

    A4's don't seem to be that fragile. Mine is still absolutely fine after nearly 5 1/2 years as it was a really early, Nov 2015 car. All I'm doing is the regular services and replacing what wears out; last week front discs and pads. 61 500 miles and going strong.

    Rust Forming Already???

    Either looks as if something has been applied to the paint in that area or, more likely it is the result of a not very good repair and respray.

    Tyre Wear and Warranty Work!

    Try the next pressure down, 35/32. This is the 'comfort' pressure which is perfectly acceptable as well

    Brake Wear Indicator

    The rears on my 2015 B9 have wear indicators and they did work although the system doesn't say whether it is F or R that needs replacing!

    Brake Wear Indicator

    Think my rears were just over 3mm when the warnings kicked in intermittently. This was about 42 000 miles.

    URGENT HELP PLEASE

    Ride height is independent of wheel size. My 'Ultra' sits on the standard 17" wheels and rarely scrapes anything.

    URGENT HELP PLEASE

    Doesn't look anything major and the under engine tray is intact so all good. A4B9 Ultra's do run low, I think they sit at least 25mm lower than a standard 'sporty' setup to aid with aerodynamics.

    URGENT HELP PLEASE

    Probably hit and then pulled down the undertray. A fairly common B9 trait; unseen deep puddles in the dark are a prime way of dislodging this.

    A4 B9 2.0TDi reliability and common issues

    2016 B9 What engine

    If you are doing much less than 16 000 - 18 000 it isn't worth it. I'm fairly marginal at 16 000, mostly on fast A roads. Less than that and stuck in slow traffic would not be good for the engine or the DPF
