    Front Lower Arm - ball joint size = 16mm or 20mm

    I've just acquired a 2002 A6 1.9 tdi sport which needs some work for an MOT. It needs both front lower arms replacing (the straight lower arms that the shocks attach to). I know from past experience that there are two different sizes of balljoints for these arms - can anyone confirm for me which...

    Brake options - 3.0 TDi Quattro

    I'm looking to replace the brake discs and pads all round on my 2006 A4 3.0 tdi quattro 233 (chipped to 294). Having priced up Brembo OE spec replacement parts, the whole lot comes to just shy of £300. Are there any other decent brands that are worth considering? Should I be looking to go for...

    Post pics of your B7 A4/S4!

    Thanks! Might just go for the spring kit, don't want it too low though as I use the car every day. The car is a manual, and is the tdv with the dpf and 233bhp output. Took me ages to find one with a decent spec. It has the full 2 tone heated leather, factory sunroof, 6 cd in-dash changer...

    Post pics of your B7 A4/S4!

    Have had this now for about 9 months and love it to bits! The power fom the 3.0 tdi is so addictive and it still returns about 44MPG's on my daily commute - its the best of both worlds. Just recently fitted the new wheels, they are 8.5J x 19" Zito 935 wheels, I took quite a while to decide what...

    Has anybody fitted B8 S-line 5 spokes to their B7?

    I am looking to change the wheels on my B7, partly because 2 of mine need a refurb and all 4 tyres need replacing, and noticed that a set of B8 S-line 5 spoke wheels can be had second hand with decent tyres for a good price. I am aware of the difference in centre bore size, but a set of spigot...

    Fitting 10mm Spacers to the rear of my B5

    The spacers were bought from ebay, but are high quality alloy spacers, £45 a pair! No idea of the manufacturer, but they are specific to Audi and VW fitment with the correct spigot for centring the wheel on the spacer when fitted. Right, did you have the chamfer on the actual spacers machined...

    Fitting 10mm Spacers to the rear of my B5

    I am having a few problems with fitting 10mm hub-centric spacers to the rerar of my A4. I bought a full set of spacers, and the fronts went on fine, but the rears don't want to go on. They are the correct PCD and the correct centre bore, but it seems that the spigot length on the rear hubs is...

    Help required - Coilovers

    Hi Siena, the image in my initial thread is of an actual A4 B5 kit as confirmed by the supplier. The individual shocks arrived in seperate boxes, and the 4 springs were just loose in the box. I am just wandering if there should be new strut tops supplied or not, and whether these springs will...

    Help required - Coilovers

    I have just taken delivery of a set of coilovers for my 1997 A4 1.9tdi. I expected them to be built-up complete units, but they have arrived in seperate boxes. I have never had coilovers before, so i am a little un-sure about how they actually fit to the car. The seller supplied the following...

    This thread made me laugh, good on you for catching the scrote who did this though, should have taken a photo of him tied up and posted it on-line, public humiliation lol, harder punishment for him to take than anything handed out by the courts. These scum need to learn one way or another to lay...

    There's a 51 plate B5 Avant up here local to me, they did make quite a lot of the B5 avants after introducing the B6 saloon. Never seen a B5 saloon younger than an X reg though.
