    How much would you pay?

    Thanks mate - when you say facelift? What's the difference? I thought it was the facelift model, it doesn't look like the 8L by any standards.

    How much would you pay?

    An update: Audi cheshire oaks offered me 5k and german autocare have offered me 5750. If they're happy to buy in at that price, they must know they can sell it on for a couple of extra grand which makes me think my 7-8k original selling price isn't that high.

    How much would you pay?

    I think they were replaced before I bought the vehicle. Will that make a big difference to the price?

    How much would you pay?

    Hey guys, Thinking about selling up and wanted to know what you guys think is reasonable for it - it'll probably be going on here + a few other websites but wanted to gauge the right price first. Note, this is NOT an advert! Here are the specs of the car: 2 owners from new (i'm the second...

    Weird Clutch or Flywheel Noise (Video)

    I think it's down the Clutch (or flywheel) casing. I had a similar sound when mine was changed, the problem is, there are two different versions of the clutch/flywheel and one is slightly thinner iirc. If you get the slightly fatter one, it fits fine but when it heats up, it expands a little bit...

    Warranty direct, yes or no?

    I've had around 3k worth of pay-outs from WD, so I can't complain!

    A4 2.0TSI - Acceleration lag on startup

    Interesting, I noticed this morning that when I went to accelerate out of a junction, it revved and then clunked before it went forward. I haven't tried going up a hill yet, but I will try. Sounds like it could be similar?

    wahoo what a result !!!

    Haha doesn't effect me either way because warranty company is paying out. But thanks for the clarification, maybe I should stop being an ungrateful ****** that thinks everyone's out to get me.

    wahoo what a result !!!

    So my car is in the garage getting a new turbo, and I was promised it would be done on Friday gone. Except I get a phone call saying, nope it hasn't been done because when they quoted they made a mistake, they quoted 4 hours, but because its a quattro its 8 hours, so it's going to take longer...

    b&o-upgrade-without-mmi-navigation-plus

    This may / may not help, but a relative has the B&O system in her A4 Avant, it sounds incredible. ****s all over the bose system that I have in my A3. It makes my stereo sound boomy and muddy (which it is). Now, regarding the surround sound, I can't imagine it would make much difference because...

    A4 2.0TSI - Acceleration lag on startup

    Hey guys, A family member has an A4 Avant and on startup when it's cold, if you try and accelerate when its stationary or moving slowly there is a massive lag before anything happens. It's hard to explain but it's definitely not the lag of a petrol engine without a turbo. I did try and search...

    Best place for brake pads?

    Use carparts4less, its the sister company of eurocarparts. Almost all the time it's cheaper than eurocarparts even with discounts. One of the unknown codes for carparts4less is "save75" which will take 7.5% off, which is good for big orders (as it's already really cheap). If it's around ~100...

    1.8 tfsi/2.0 tfsi/2.0 tdi?

    Well not 100% sure as I have nothing to compare it against, I'd say anything that could go wrong with the car, has gone wrong. Quick overview: Clutch, gearbox rebuild, Flywheel, turbo, propshaft. I've not had the car a year yet!

    1.8 tfsi/2.0 tfsi/2.0 tdi?

    I've got the A3 2.0TDI 170 Quattro sportback. It's cost me a ****** fortune in repairs! Good job I took out warrantydirect, they've softened the blow a little bit. Haha, yeah definitely try and keep it that way!

    1.8 tfsi/2.0 tfsi/2.0 tdi?

    Yeah the 1.8 sounds like it could be the best choice! If it helps, I've recently turned 21, the insurance for my car is 1.6k (had to do a LOT of grafting, average quote was 2-3k), just make sure you don't get points! I got points within a week of having my new motor (running a yellow/red) and...

    1.8 tfsi/2.0 tfsi/2.0 tdi?

    I was in the exact same shoes as you, this same time last year... I bought a A3 2.0TDI 170 and it's been remapped to around 200... Whilst I love the car, the quality cabin and drive, it just lacks "fizz". The power and torque comes in at around 1.8k but then disappears as quickly as it...

    Senior Advice Needed

    My car is same year/model and it's the 170 like yours. I got it remapped and dpf removed almost as soon as I bought it as I hated the "lag" the car had. I bought the car at around 68k, 11 months ago and it's now at 97k. So in a year it's basically done 30k which is quite a lot for the car and...
