    Auto wipers

    Good to hear you can turn the rain sensing wipers off on the A3, I've never had any that have actually worked properly. My GTI will flap away like a maniac at a couple of spits of rain, then leave the whole screen covered in it for ten minutes.

    Scumbags, and how to get used oil out of a coolant header tank.

    Hey, thanks for the tips, I was looking at turkey basters on eBay! Luckily a chap from Brighton who flips cars has bought it. So he can clean it up and polish a few quid into it.

    Scumbags, and how to get used oil out of a coolant header tank.

    Hey Chez, Thanks, I found a video on removing the header tank, which seems doable. So I'll try clamping off the coolant hoses, pulling the header tank and cleaning it out. If the craps gotten around the system already I'll end up paying to get it flushed and refilled anyway, but it's...

    Scumbags, and how to get used oil out of a coolant header tank.

    Hey, it's quite a well known scam that I should have cottoned on to sooner. One distracts you asking about the spare wheel, whilst his friend puts dirty oil in the coolant, then the other distracts you asking about the engine, whilst one squirts something up the exhaust. You go for a test drive...

    Scumbags, and how to get used oil out of a coolant header tank.

    Today a couple of guys viewing the B7 I'm selling, decided to put used oil in my header tank, and squirt some up the exhaust whilst I wasn't looking. Then try and convince me my car was broken and I should sell it to them cheaply. Good times. So, has anybody got any tips for getting a bunch of...

    Suggestion for audi a3

    Unless your annual mileage really justifies the diesel, I'd always get a petrol personally, especially these days.

    How many cigarettes do you smoke?

    Yup, I went from 15 to 18 stone. :D Slowly losing it though, low carb seems to be working.

    How many cigarettes do you smoke?

    Quit 10 years ago with the help of e-cigs and one of those inhalators. It was rough, but worth it. I'm a bit of a fat f$%k now, but I guess that's better than the potential consequences of smoking. :D

    1.8TFSI 180ps vs Facelift 2.0TFSI 190ps

    Hi Rory, suspension sounds promising thanks, I can't corner quickly due to my injuries, so won't be loading up the suspension too much. My driving style has to be 6/10ths round the corners, then nail it in a straight line. :) I got my figures from AMD and the one Superchips list for the A4 B9...

    Vibration under load at around 2,000rpm (2.0TFSI)

    Might be worth checking that your snub mount rubber is still there and in good nick, as it's an easy thing to rule out.

    1.8TFSI 180ps vs Facelift 2.0TFSI 190ps

    Thanks Matt, good to hear even on sports suspension they are quite compliant. The ones I've been looking at you could fit your head in the arch gap, so I'm fairly confident they are on the dynamic suspension. :) One good thing about the FL sports, is that dynamic suspension was standard fit...

    Installing K&N Air Filter

    Whether there are any gains to be had with an aftermarket intake is very application specific. If the stock intake is restrictive, there can be gains to be had at or near stock. If it'll flow well for a given power level, you probably don't need to change it until then. The stock B7 airbox...

    FBSW prices , bonkers or what.

    They do look really nice too.

    Facelift Install LED on 2014 A3

    VW are pretty generous with the options, whereas Audi like to appear competitive on price, by making everything a cost option. It's not as bad as it used to be though. The B6 was basic AF unless you got into the options list, my B7 is still pretty sparse.

    Installing K&N Air Filter

    The stock intake is more than enough for the RS4, pretty sure it'll flow just fine for my 4 pot.

    FBSW prices , bonkers or what.

    Definitely the RS tax in action. I couldn't give up the stereo controls, even for a fancier wheel.

    1.8TFSI 180ps vs Facelift 2.0TFSI 190ps

    I think I'm going for a FL for sure, they just seem the more sensible buy, given the price difference isn't that great. Would love an S-Line but they almost all have the 25mm lower suspension and 18's, so same problem as the GTI for me. They do look great though. Thanks I'll keep an eye out...

    1.8TFSI 180ps vs Facelift 2.0TFSI 190ps

    Thanks, If I could I'd keep the MK7 GTI I bought recently, but due to my previous injuries it's too hard a setup for me. So your 1.8tfsi sport set up sounds good! APR got 256hp and 300ft/lb with just a remap on the 1.8tfsi, so you're definitely right about it being pegged back, especially in...
