    Alarm keeps going off!

    Anyone ever had their alarm randomly go off? Whenever my cars locked it goes off within a couple of minutes, but the hazards don’t flash! Luckily it’s locked in a garage over night but I can’t use it to go anywhere I need to get out and leave it parked up!

    I’d forgotten how good B6’s are to drive

    Had my S4 in for MOT this morning and she passed with flying colours after a few years pretty much off the road. The tester said she’s like brand new mechanically underneath which is testament to the way I used to maintain it before I parked it up, as for the bodywork though....that’s a...

    034 x-brace review

    I’ve had the new RHD x-brace on for roughly a week. I’ve had it fitted after reading all the hype on the US forums for years and everybody saying it’s a must have modification. I was a bit sceptical as I’ve done absolutely everything else possible on the front end so wasn’t sure how much of a...

    Tyres losing pressure after re-furb

    I had some wheels refurbished a couple of weeks back, after picking them up they sat in my garage for a week before i came to put them on the car. When fitting them I realised 3 of the 4 had next to no pressure in them and 1 was in the low 20's. I thought maybe they hadn't pumped them up...
