    Knocking/grinding/popping from front end

    Hi guys, just wanted your opinion before I approach a garage. I recently had a reconditioned steering rack fitted and a new subframe engine mount (the two discs that slot into the subframe) fitted to my car. Prior to this, car handled bends and roundabouts really well even when pushing it with...

I'm currently contemplating getting some uprated...

    Steering rack - opinions needed

    Right bit of a long one, but please persevere! So my car has had a yellow steering light (faulty torque sensor) ever since I had some new dampers, struts and CV boots fitted. I think the garage doing the work, did something to disturb the rack/torque sensor and since then it's been showing a...

    Opinions please - New EGR or EGR Delete pipe?

    Hi guys, I have a 2005 A3 with the BKD engine. My EGR still works (got no error light), however the EGR appears to be leaking oil from the vacuum side of the EGR assembly and oil is coating the areas behind the EGR/on the engine block and inlet manifold. This looks to me as a possible hole in...

    Axle stand question

    Hi guys, one of the securing pins on my axle stand have gone missing after I let a mate borrow them. It would be a shame to chuck away a good set of stands. What else can I use in place of it? I have two spare subframe bolts from my A3. Will this be ok? It fits in the stand also. However the...

    Red Gunge, what is it? - Pics attached

    Hi all, checked the coolant level in my car recently and it was on minimum. The last time I topped it up was roughly about 6 months (or more) ago. Therefore it just appears to be a very slow drop in coolant. I use the car every single day too. Car has a B revision head, had a new thermostat...

    Dr. Strange

    I watched this the other day. I have to say it started well, but it really did seem to drag on around the midway point and the ending scenes with the "villain" are great if you are a kid who is into comics, which I'm not lol Not one I would watch again personally. A Lamborghini Huracan did make...

    Alignment and Tyre Wear

    Hi all, just wanted some ideas as to what you might think might be causing the tyre wear on my car. I had the alignment done a year or two ago and at the time, the technician said (after he had performed the alignment) that no matter how much he tried, he couldn't adjust the camber on the...

    What do you guys think of these?

    So been working on these for a while. They were time consuming to sand and paint. Then I had to modify them to sit how I wanted to which was to have them flush with the openings. The colour won't appeal to all, but I like it :) Let me know what you guys think! Ignore the valve caps, they are...
