    Audi A4 Avant - Power Steering Fluid / Hydraulic Fluid Query

    I'm planning to get the leak investigated and addressed separately but wanted to ensure that the correct fluid is put in once flushed as I know PS fluid is not specified to be routinely changed in the manual. But cheers for the explanation.

    Audi A4 Avant - Power Steering Fluid / Hydraulic Fluid Query

    Thanks - but this is a synthetic formula. You're saying that's ok to put into the reservoir that states Mineral?

    Audi S3 Side Lights

    Hi, Could anyone tell me where I can get sidelights with a colour temperature of between 4700K and 5000K? The ones on ebay all seem to be 6000K to 6500K for the 501 T10's which are all a bit too blue for my liking. Would like some sidelights to match my xenons. Can anyone help? Cheers

    Matching sidelights to xenon headlights

    Thanks for that mate. Did you have to modify any resistors or are these error free bulbs i.e. did your car throw up any errors?

    Matching sidelights to xenon headlights

    Hi there, Could anyone send me a link to where I can buy canbus error free sidelights that colour temperature match the xenon headlights of an 8L S3? The ones I have have a tinge of blue and I'm not keen on them...would rather they match the stock xenons. Thanks!

    Cheers guys. How do they look when the lights are off? Do they stick out like a sore thumb within the headlamp?

    8L S3 Lighting Help Request

    Hi, Apart from the bolt that holds the front seatbelt rail to the frame of the car (at the bottom), can anyone else recommend a suitable earthing point near the rear of the car that is fairly accessible? I am looking to earth my active sub. Cheers in advance!

    My car - your thoughts on modifications?

    Have to say I agree...some of the replies on here as of late have been shocking. It's not difficult to be nice, but perhaps some people struggle with it more than others.

    S3 head gasket issues?

    I'm pretty sure you guys are correct in that there is probably nothing wrong. Took it to a garage this morning, checked the coolant and it was still at a decent level. Under the advice of the garage I topped it up to a level where I would visually see if it falls in a short space of time...

    Changed the oil around 6-8 weeks ago. I just checked the oil level and it is no longer in the "hashed" area of the dip stick. It's well below that (will be topping up shortly).

    S3 head gasket issues?

    So the mayo-type substance under the oil filler cap and white smoke might not indicate it's the HG?

    S3 head gasket issues?

    Well, I put the question mark there, but I'm pretty sure it is (unless I'm wrong?) - lots of white smoke out the exhaust upon startup and once warmed up (I initially thought it was because of the cold weather). Looked underneath the oil cap and there is a creamy substance under it. I'm...
