    Van wrote me off :(

    So much for that survey that reared its head on TV the other week saying statistically white van drivers were unfairly maligned by other road users! Just glad your alright, shame about the car though.

    Can Audi Delete Revo Maps when it goes in for a service?

    They may re-write parameters of the cars ECU programming. We recently had a revision to the code for power steering parameters on the S5, but there are a raft of parameters that can be changed if Audi find issues. On your car they won't be doing software updates as it's been superseded, but...

    Can Audi Delete Revo Maps when it goes in for a service?

    They can only overwrite the remap if they do a software update. If they just clear down codes/errors you should be fine.

    V power losses?

    2007 United Kingdom petrol contamination - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Silicone contamination in unleaded. There are also rumours that the the increase percentage of ethanol going into new fuels (was around 5%, but could make it up to 15% of total volume in the future) might mean cleaner...

    V power losses?

    Petrol RON rating can degrade over time if the fuel is sat for extended periods after manufacture. As Tesco's tend to sell shed loads more fuel than Shell as they are cheaper, the turnover of fuel will be more regular and it will be fresher (and likely to yield a better RON rating). Given all...

    Pleasedits been found, hope they haven't abused it to badly. I bet the scrotes involved wont even get a stiff talking to, the justice system is a limp wristed corporate *******ised joke.

    Audi S3 needed for filming/Fifth Gear TV show (UK)

    When he was driving it and I caught a glimpse of the intercooler and filter I started to think.... 'Does he really understand EXACTLY what he's driving!'. Probably not the fairest reflection of a stock S3, more an indication of the potential it has in the hands of the right people.

    Most comfy coilovers

    Whilst coilovers are a way of achieveng a high level of adjustability in respect of ride height / ride characteristics, speak to many potential buyers about the likes of corner-weighting or optimum set up characteristics and their expressions usually go blank. For cars that go to shows that...

    best clutch stage 2 ??

    I'd look at SPEC (not sure which model) or Sachs Racing Clutch. If you want more OEM feel put it with a DMF, not a SMF.

    Bye bye Bumble. :-(

    Sorry to hear it Welly; shame when a car disappears off up the drive unless it's caused you untold pain and money! So which Audi is coming next? Surely not an 8P?! :p

    Grinding/Scratchy Brakes (with video)

    Interesting one, immediate thought was dirt/grit between pad face & brake disc, but given calipers been changed its unlikely. There is nothing caught between the heat shield and the disc is there? Take it sound always comes from same wheel. Suppose disc could be warped but you would think...

    In your forum section it says you're Revo dealers Mike; I take it not anymore....

    The Ring

    In his defence (not that he needs it), if you moderate or own a forum you see so much sh1t day to day that you become very direct about it. Dreamer, fantasists, tyre kickers, billy big b0ll0cks etc., so the tendency is in time to become incredibly candid. I think he's become a victim of that...

    The Ring

    m0rk's a top bloke, been out mountain biking with him recently as we live near each other. He's a very direct guy, but then I've always respected him for it as I don't know enough people/friends who'd have the balls to tell me if I was being a **** where appropriate. He's no nonsense and I...

    The Ring

    We had steak on the stone at Pistenklaus with Ian and Mark (Head of Seatcupra.net) the day before he did it. Mark & I went off to Porsche Museum at Stuttgart the following day, and the first photo in my post was one of the last ever photos taken of the car in good condition before the incident...

    Ouch! First time I'd see that. Our mate ended up a bit worse off damage wise, no vid, but photos: BEFORE AFTER

    The Ring

    When we were there in 2010 our mate crashed into a barrier (granted it was a big crash - a roll) and investigation teams and barrier repair teams were sent out. It cost him thousands in fees before he'd even set out to repair his car, so on your sighting laps PLEASE do be careful and as Prawn...
