    A3 8V sportback OEM tow bar retrofit, control module required?

    Hi all, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, mainly because my 8V has been such a lovely reliable daily! Over the last couple of years I’ve only really changed wheels, done routine services, replaced the timing belt and water pump, and replaced the clutch and DMF. I put the DMF failure...

    A3 S-Line sportback build update - what next?

    Good evening all! It's been quite a while since I've been active on ASN, so I figured I'd post an update on my A3. I've had this one about 18 months now, I bought it to replace my lovely C6 A6 3.0TDi Quattro as it was costing me the earth to run! I swore I'd keep this one standard, but, well...

    2013 5d S-line auto lights/wipers DIY retrofit info, coding help needed.

    Hi All, I have a 2013 8V S-line, without auto lights and wipers. I had my windscreen replaced on my insurance the other day, while he was there I had a chat to the technician and asked if it was a different windscreen for cars with auto lights and wipers. He said no, as my car already has a...

    Budget brake upgrade: Q7 brakes and or ducting, anyone done it?

    Good morning all, I hope you've had a good weekend! Mine has been eventful! I have discovered just how limiting the 321mm single pot brakes are on the front of my 2005 3.0 TDi quattro. I managed to set fire to them after some 'spirited driving'. I'm not exaggerating when I say set fire to them...

    A6 3.0TDi BMK often won't start when hot. No fault codes, what to investigate?

    Good morning all, Over the last few months my 2005 A6 C6 3.0 TDi has developed a hot start issue. When it has been on a good run and is nice and warm, it will refuse to fire. It is now happening more than once a week! It will always crank perfectly, for exactly the same amount of time (about 3-4...

    3.0 TDI BMK new injectors fitted, running nicely but now smoking even worse on idle! Where to invest

    Afternoon all. I've just replaced all 6 injectors on my 3.0 TDI BMK with used low mileage later revision units (I had 059 130 277 S, which is the original revision, I have just fitted 059 130 277 AH, which seems to have no issues). I did this to cure the well known injector failure on this...

    3.0TDi build update, straight through exhaust with 3.0" downpipe and home made rear section. Video i

    Evening all, it's been a little while since I've posted on here, so I'll start with a few pics of how it's looking now. I don't have much left to do with the exterior, I'm happy with how it is looking now. I got the wheels (19x8.5, reps I believe) very cheap as they were in very poor...

    Snapped/sheared Glow plug 3.0TDi BMK engine

    Morning all. With all the cold weather recently, my A6 decided it was time to dust off the old glow plugs and give them a blast of current. Unfortunately one of them wasn't quite up to and and brought the light on. I scanned the codes and found cylinder five to be the issue. So I started poking...

    Build thread: Custom fitted 12" JL audio sub, with my own plans for C6

    Evening all. It's been a few months of owning my A6 3.0 TDI Quattro. Apart from a few minor things, it's been great! But now it's time to get modding ;) First on the list is audio; for the most part I've found the Bose pretty good to listen to, not quite up there with the Focal and JL Audio...

    Coding Multi-function steering wheel 2004 4F saloon Bose

    Hi all, I have a 2004 4F saloon with MMI high, DIS, Cruise control and tip-tronic. I wanted the buttons on a MFSW, so I went and bought a steering wheel identical to my old one but with buttons. My old one was 4f0 419 091 g skr, the new one is 4f0 419 091 j 1kt. I have fitted it, looks lovely...

    It's me again, servicing questions and is this noise my tensioner?

    Hello one and all. As I've had the car a few weeks now, I'm starting to look into one or two issues it might have. It's a 54 A6 3.0 TDi BMK. The most major of them is this noise, the video was shot just now, the car was cold. By the sounds of it, this could be the dreaded chain tensioner. In...

    How to: DIY repair of rear seat catch/lock on 4f saloon and possibly avant.

    Hi all, since I get so much out of you guys, I thought I'd give a little back. When I got the car, the passenger side rear seat catch wouldn't release, so the seat wouldn't fold! The lever would turn, but it was clear that it wasn't connected, as there was no Spring tension on it. If you are...

    Access for rear window tints on saloon?

    Hi all, I'm becoming a bit a regular here! Feel free to tell me to p**s off ;) I've bought myself a set of pre cut 25% window tints for my A6 saloon. I managed to do a very good job using pre cut tints on my A3, but as it was a hatch, access to the rear windscreen was much better! Has anyone...

    Are my old Parrot wiring looms going to be useful for a later install on my A6 4F (Bose)

    Good evening all, I have just finishing binning off the (useless) Parrot MKI9200 that came fitted to the car when I bought it in favour of the Dension Gateway 500s BT. I am now left with a collection of expensive looking aftermarket looms that went with the parrot. My question is: before I...

    Where to fit USB and aux in port for Dension Gateway 500s BT

    Hello all. I bought my car last week, it is a 54 plate 3.0 tdi quattro with mmi 2g. The very first mod on my list was some kind of multi media interface. I looked at doing an OEM AMI install, but parts seemed to be hard to get, and very pricy for what you get. I then looked at the VNS media...

    Hello C6 section, Here is my 3.0TDi Quattro and I have a new C6 newbie questions.

    Hello all, I'm no stranger to ASN or indeed Audi ownership. This was my 8P which I owned and loved for 2 years. Unfortunately She went pop in spectacular fashion (turbo oil seals, then seized) on Monday night. (side note, I'm now breaking her, message me for bits) http://imgur.com/u348y8D I...

    Mysterious battery drain - 1.4A with car locked!

    A few weeks ago I fitted heated seats, while I was doing this I had the car open all day, so drained the battery. I jumped the car and all was well. A few days later I came to it in the early morning for work and again it was dead, so I jumped it, and as soon as I got to work a bought a brand...

    Retrofitting heated seats WITHOUT a Kufatec Loom

    I have bought a rather nice set of half leather heated seats to replace replace the nasty cloth ones in my 3d 8P SE. I got them for the rather tasty price of £120 plus shipping! I have also got myself the relevant climate control unit with heated seats buttons. In case you have bumped into my...
