Was fitting a new wing mirror glass and I noticed the heater element connectors dont fit in tight. Was just wondering.
1. Is it ok to crimp the clips down to try to make it tighter? Can only assume this is due to an OEM part.
2. Does it matter which way the connectors go on and if so is...
If I accelerate hard from 1st into 2nd gear sometimes its as if my car hasn't gone into gear properly. If I push the accelerator down the revs go up but the car does not move forward (pull). Its as if it is stuck in this for about 5secs or so before it actually pulls normally.
Noticed an issue with my car were if I accelerate hard (high revs) and try going into 3rd gear it crunches. If I drive low revs I don't get this issue.
I was told it could probably be my synchro forks which will cost me between £1000-1500 to fix (and possible a new clutch).
I searched the...
Yeah its the same with me, I just forget and like to take the photo straight after lol, forget all about the golden discs! :P

Note to self, don't use AG Wheel Protector on dark coloured alloys as stated:
Washed it off though :) It could even have been a bit of drip from the Tyre Dressing as my car sits up on a kerb..
Either way I will just be buying some PoorBoys Wheel Sealant for them :)

I was looking to remove the grey front lip on my a4 2.0 tdi quattro black edition so I could paint it black to match other parts of the car.
Does anyone have a guide on how I can remove it and if its an easy job to do.
Looking to invest into some mods for my A4 B8 2.0TDI Quattro Black Edition.
Was looking into getting a stage 1 remap but was recommended if I was going to be upgrading other stuff like intakes/exhausts etc it would be cheaper going straight to stage 2.
What kind of mods should I be looking at...
I was looking into getting my A4 Stage 1 remapped. I can get it done for about £400 and I will go from 170BHP to about 200-205BHP.
Is there a noticeable difference from a stage 1 remap?

Picked car up today:
Really happy with it prefer the black wheel over gunmetal. Only niggle I have if any is I wish they done the silver trim the same as the caliper. The trim is the colour of the diamond cut edge but the caliper is a very bright silver, who knows it may die down a bit as...
I have a few stone chips around my car with also a rather large (5mm) flake off of the front bumper. I also have a scratch along the backside of the car about 20-30mm in length.
I bought a kit from Halfords but the colour doesn't match at all, even though it was the right colour code.
Gave my old grey centre caps a sand, primer and satin black coat.. turned out really nice actually :)
Think I prefer them over the gloss caps but will compare tomorrow once I get the car back. I didn't want to fit the old rusty chrome rings and symbol and left the clean new ones in the car...
