    TV Wall Mount/bracket Recomendations?

    Hey guys, never noticed this section on here before! I got a 42" LG tv for christmas, and want to put it on the wall really. Have been looking around and the wall brackets all vary in design and price quite a bit. I'm guessing that the more I spend, then the better quality, but I want to avoid...

    Aftermarket (i.e re-usable) Pannel Filters.. 2.0 TDI

    Hi Guys, Done a lot of digging around on the net, and it seems that a K&N Pannel Filter would mess up my MAF dispite there being an article on the K&N website saying otherwise (obviously). Is it true that the oil they are sprayed with will kill my MAF? Any benefits over the stock ones? I read...

    Hey guys, My girlfriend is getting into kite surfing, and so I will need to fit a wakeboard to my car at some point in the coming months to go on a trip to the coast. I have been looking around and cannot get to grips with how a roof rack would fit to my car as there are no obvious fitting...

    Another 'coilovers fitted' thread.. Except it still looks pants! :)

    Soo, reason it still looks pants is because it is the first mod I have actually done on the car over standard. I just thought I would chuck some pics up anyway though, as it is a start at least :) Before: During.. lol After: Fronts are about halfway down, and...

    Top Mount Bearing's price?

    Hey all, Got my coilovers now, so will be going on in just over a week! Just wondering if anyone knows how much Audi charge for new top mount bearings? VW ones are around £9 each I think for a mk5 golf which is pretty much the same setup. Thanks! :)

    Aftermarket HID/Xenon - clarification please!

    Ok so I have been searching around, and it seems that what I have read about aftermaket HID kits do impact the wiper motor on A3's. But why? I really do not see how they are remotely linked together! I...

    Hi Guys, I have a 2004 A3 8P for reference. Basically what I am trying to do is rewire my rear speakers direct to the headunit rather than have them go through the standard amp (aftermarket headunit + rear amped speakers and sub = crackle at the moment) What is the best way of doing this? I...

    Hey guys, Just a quick question really, and not really to do with fitting coilovers, however... When looking at how I would go about fitting coilovers (dont a fair few sets of suspension on various cars and the A3 looks easier than some others) I couldn't see how to access the top of the...

    Guess the rubber bung name (help with flywheel hole cover thingy name!)

    Right so today I got my car serviced by a friends garage.. and he pointed out that underneath the airbox where the flywheel viewing hole is, there is a bung missing (which could potentially get a stone in and screw things up). If I walk into Audi and ask for 'the flywheel inspection hole...

    2.0 140 TDI Oil ?

    Hey all, I am getting my car serviced this week, and spoke to the guy who is doing it. He said that it is fine to use any brand oil as long as its the correct rating. The Castrol website says to use Castrol Edge 5W-30, which I am guessing is correct, but would another brand's fully synthetic...
