    rear brakes upgrade

    As i remember it: B5 variant S4 brakes won't fit a B5 A4 or A4 quattro as the hubs have differing caliper mounts on them. I have been told that the B6 S4 and A4's have the same mount points! this is not gospel though. You would also need the S4's calipers and caliper carriers, so if they are...

    Pads and discs??

    Discs: as you will already have the larger standard sized discs (288mm) you wont get that much extra benefit from buying replacement standard discs or drilled or grooved discs. Pads: on the other hand can make a significant difference depending on the make and specification. it is all...

    rear brakes upgrade

    If you were to upgrade the rear brakes you would most certainly make the car unstable under braking as the brakes would remove the front brake bias. you'd have to upgrade the fronts as well to overcome this, besides it's the front brakes that do most of the work anyway you'd be better off...

    powerflex advice. a final definitive answer anyone?

    ????????? they need pressing in to the suspension arms but if you're getting knocks chances are it's the balljoints on the end of the arms, they cant be replaced, just the full arm with the bushes and joints fitted. it's apparently a straight forward job for a garage with all the toys...

    Fuel prices

    I dont think any of the above would work as it's all been tried before anyhow! what if the nearest fuel station is a BP?ESSO and its a further 20 or 30 miles out of your way to get SHELL fuel? and your fuel is nearly out! are you seriously saying you'd make that trek of maybe 50 miles or so to...
