    Remote key flashing

    Hi all, 2014 A7, which I believe is the same key as the A6. The remote key still works but the little light flashes red a couple of times after activation. Does this mean it's lost coding or battery is low? I haven't changed or attempted to change the battery. Thanks

    A4 B7 2.0 TFSi - DV Noise

    Hi all, Since I bought my car, I noticed what I assume to be a noisy diverter valve. Assumed it was split, so changed to a rev D. Power jumped hugely, but the noise is still apparent. The noise in question is a fast ticking / whirring noise when revs are dropping. It happens when driving...

    S3 Mirrors Stolen - Birmingham

    Went to get my hair cut earlier, my barbers son has a new S3. His mirrors were stolen two nights ago on the drive, cables cut etc. Bad news, just thought I'd give a heads up for anybody in the area with silver mirrors. They are highly likely to get taken from what I have heard.

    Calipers Painted - that's all

    Hi all, Painted my calipers today, £10 mod and I'm quite pleased with myself. Not the most interesting, but thought I would share. Brake discs are rusted as the wife is away and I'm using her company 3-series, free fuel and that so I'd be daft not to.

    Changing Wiper Blades

    Just a little rant really, that's the most difficult wiper blade swap I have ever done!!!! Replaced with genuine Audi wipers, the old ones had fused themselves onto the ends of the arms. Half hour, all done now but highly frustrating.

    Lamin-X Headlight Protection Film

    Hi all, Tried the fly-eyes kit today, and although easy to install, it looked pretty rubbish - kinda like the old Vauxhall Nova "tights over the lights" trick. So I have decided to go down the Lamin-X subtle tint film route instead. Just measured and costed it up for my car and it comes out...
