    Wing Mirror Replacement Connectors

    Hi. 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...

    Revs locking

    Hi, 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. Any ideas...

    Crunch from 2nd to 3rd gear

    Hi, 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...

    Am I better with Hammerite paint or VHT? I take it I am better with tin rather than spray.

    Recommend First Mods

    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...

    Stage 1 Remapping

    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? I've heard horror stories of clutches breaking down rapid and turbo's sometimes going altogether. Is this...

    Paintwork Touch Up

    Hi, 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. I...

    Diamond Cut Rotors Powder Coating
