    3.0tdi actuator issue

    How I stumbled across this I do not know, but suffice to say I am ordering two tomorrow. I have been driving my Touareg Altitude around for over six months with the light on and no difference in power or fuel consumption. Reason for this is that the stealer told me that it was £800.00 a side to...

    Swap my car and give £250.00 for r32 mk5 2008 reg ? Thoughts ?

    Not that fully loaded if it doesn't have sat nav!! Too expensive to run and tune. Stick with the oil burner and save some £ till you can buy an S3.

    Lowering 2.0 tfsi quattro s line

    I fitted Vogtland 50mm lowering springs to my S Line Sportback. It actually dropped it 30mm and it looks and drives a whole load better than before. Vogtland springs are made by Eibach in Germany and actually drop the car evenly. Bought from DPM on here for £175.00. Very impressed with them...

    S3 I might be buying tomorrow....thoughts....?

    Thats rubbish, giving it away at 21k. They probably have about 4k in that deal.they are obviously selling enough cars to hit their targets at present. Walk away, and any money you like they will ring you within 48hrs to see if you are still interested, tell them to stuff it and you are buying...

    DPF Re-Gen

    Guys, I feel your pain with all the DPF problems you are having. When I had an A4 cab the light came on for the dpf and all I did was to put a brick on the throttle at 2500rpm for 20 mins. Never had the light come on again. Now got an A3 PD170 as a second car and that has come one once in the...

    Blowing cold air on passenger

    If you have climate then you have a problem that I had last winter. The HVAC switch/sensor for passenger side has packed up. You need to run vcds and it will show you which switch/sensor is faulty. Mine cost me £107.00 from the stealers and took me about 2 hrs to fit. Lot less than the £700.00 I...
