    I can't believe the new Range Rover is bad, since it's basically a BMW X7. Sure, it's assembled by Ford/Land Rover but surely the can't screw that up, can they? For me the problem with the RR is it's size, depreciation and lack of agility otherwise it felt like a great car when I drove it.

    High Speed Buffing

    [ QUOTE ] However I have to say that to me it reads like you are trying to convince yourself (and maybe others) that the CSL will be everything you want it to be and you are prepared to accept what is I believe to be sub standard offering from BMW. [/ QUOTE ] Gareth, fair comment. I have...

    [ QUOTE ] They managed to find the cause of the noise, one of the technicians spotted that my offside rear wheel was loose and the nearside rear wouldn't do up to the correct torque. [/ QUOTE ] That's one thing I forgot to mention in the Track Day Editorial, I always check my wheel...

    In gear acceleration times

    Here are my times: Ok, Did some tests. These results are for a standard 1998 S reg Audi S4 saloon with 50k miles. All tests were perfomed on the flat, using Optimax (half tank) air-con on, engine warm, no passengers and a 100kg driver (not sure if that makes a difference or not) I did three...

    Logging turbo boost with VAG-COM

    RAM, tried this last night. Don't think you mean block 011, more like 115 I think. sadly the shareware version doesn't go this high

    Problems with alarm transmitter.

    Hi Dave, Funny what you say about stray radio signals. I have a similar set up to you, i.e audi alarm and a clifford. On a few occasions I thought the clifford wasn't working properly when I tried to arm/disarm it. It would seem that if (when I'm in a hurry) and I've got my hands full of...

    I'm in bristol, and I think ChrisT is too. Tauton or Exeter aren't too far away, so yes I'd be up for it. -Dan

    Coil Packs - has anyone got one!

    Hi Jo, Seriosuly, if they look at all like they can be dismantled, then by all means send me one. I won't be online much today, but if you need my address then Joshie has it. I can't promise anything, but I'll certainly have a look for you. .....I never could refuse a damsel in distress

    Gearbox Repaired!

    What sort of times were you getting then?? I'd imagine a standard S4 would do about 14s @ 100mph.

    Coil Packs - has anyone got one!

    I wonder if they can be repaired? Can't be too much in them, presume it's just a coil and perhaps an electronic switch? Does anyone know if they can be dismantled? If so, then I bet I could fix one. -Dan

    MAF Cleaning (used to be "Technical Forum")

    True, but the A3 i.8T doesn't have a MAF so you wouldn't have the oil and worries. I think the 1.8T engines have a pressure sensor, not air mass.

    Thank Audi for Quattro/ESP

    Chaps, We have a big car park at work, which when I came to work this morning was: a) empty b) covered in snow/ice I spent a while ploughing it up in my S' !! I've never really felt this phenomenon on the road (but have heard people speaking about it) but if the front cannot get traction you...

    MAF Cleaning (used to be "Technical Forum")

    Joshie, I don't think it would make too much difference on a standard car like mine. ....but then yours is far from standard!! I'd would have thought the standard audi airbox and filter combo were designed with 265bhp in mind, perhaps you could stratch this a bit, but 400hp's worth of air...

    What kind of company car do you get?

    I recently did that (claimed back the difference from the taxman) a cheque for £1000 !! Lovely-jubbly!

    What kind of company car do you get?

    I did just that Joshie. Took the money and ran!!!! I get £370 per month, which goes some way towards keeping my S4 on the road. The only appeal of the company car scheme for me was the saving I'd make on insurance (I'm 25) But when you look into it, you get taxed to high heaven for having a...

    Power Supply Unit - Sony VCR

    Tend to agree with Jon. Judging by the 400v cap it sounds like a switched mode psu, which usually have on board fuses, check these first. If anything looks burnt or charred then it probably needs replacing. Give the circuit board a quick wash down with the Isoprop alcohol you have left from the...
