    Hi all, Pretty sure I've got the dreaded cam chain rattle but having a slight disagreement with my local specialist. I've managed to record the sound a couple of times It does it mostly when the car has warmed up and on the Auto stop/start function. Not very often from cold. It's now doing...

    Brake set, purely for vanity

    Did I do bad?

    Hi all, A few months ago I purchased an A5 Sportback, 3.0 V6 with 7speed S-Tronic. The car was registered September 2012. It had 90k on it (high I know) but I thought I'd done my research right, it had new clutch and flywheel, gearbox oil done, servicing all done etc. Now I think I read there...
