    Is Google earth view going ?

    Out of pure coincidence, I came across a thread about Google Earth view on Audi's built before 2018 not being available after 2020. Anyone know if that is actually true or not ?

    No Bucket Method

    Interesting 2 videos I came across by accident. Makes logical sense to me and less flaffing about with buckets. Will obviously need one for wheels though. I have been using the multi mitt method for a while now, but just couldnt get enough soap down. This seems the solution to replace the...

    Car pro Essence. Anybody used it ?

    Hi folks, hope you are all keeping well ? Has anyone used the above ? If so what are your thoughts. I sort of wanted to use it because I didn't want to go crazy on my clear coat, but liked the fact that it has semi permanent fillers and finishes rally well. I wasn't planning on ceramic coating...

    White details Youtube channel. RS5 and R8 GT

    Not sure how many of you watch the White Details channel. I really like it and he is very down to earth and shows you everything that he does rather than show you some before and after footage. A good few things I have learnt from him. Anyway, this week he has an RS5 in a really nice dark blue...

    Ctek Charger and aux plug in boot

    Finally got my charger and thought that I could charge it using the cigarette adaptor in the boot socket. Turns out its only on when the ignition is on. Is that correct ? I was led to believe the boot one was permanently live and I could charge from it.

    Does a PFL always pop on start up

    I noticed this yesterday when I took the car out of the garage to clean it, it didn't make any pops on initial start up. Is that because of the warm weather ?

    New Sim card for PFL

    Apologies beforehand if this is a silly question but Im not that technically minded. At the moment I have a data Sim from 3 in the car which I top up when needed. Mainly for google maps. But this costs £10 for 1gb and only last 30 days. Anyway I just got a giffgaff Sim which is a lot cheaper and...

    Steamy headlights

    Anyone else get this? Mine has done it from new, normally when I wash it. But it did it the other day when driving in rain, when I stopped, parts of the headlights were steamed up.

    CTEK Charger fitment to PFL RS3

    Hi folks, anyone got a CTEK Charger connected ? Can I ask how you have fitted it ? Permanently so you just disconnect the plug but leave the other end permanently fitted ? Cigarette lighter socket in the boot ? Also would the MXS 5.0 Test and Charge be ok with the Start Stop Battery, or will I...
