Ash - I need some parts if available:

3) I need the exhaust tunnel cut from the shell incorporating the gear linkageand handbrake
Let me know if you can help.
Hello all, I'm looking for technical information on the 8P Quattro system; specifically the gearbox and new 4-link rear suspension system.
Do any of you know much about it or perhaps have a useful link? Images also gratefully received.
4300k is closest colour temperature to natural light and offers the best performance. Anything above this is a sacrifice.
You can improve the standard units by fitting high power ballasts. A few companies in the states do this conversion.
My 52 plate was up for 12k, it's 54k with FASH and I didn't get a single call despite this being book price for the spec! It's got all the options and is a special order RS4 colour. I've now reduced it to 10995.
Bad time of year!
Hello Dave! I've got an S3 at the moment.

I never tried a non-S4 Quattro shaft in an S4 hub - they may fit.
I tried this years ago - from memory the splines are different on Quattro driveshafts, especially between S4/RS4 and lower models; meaning you can't fit the hubs. You may be able to swap to Quattro drive shafts if the CV cup bolt pattern is the same on your gearbox.
A few things:
1) Smoke on the overrun
2) Smoke when accelerating after the engine has been idling for some time
3) The Turbo will be more audible than normal, and will give more of a screeching noise
The above symptoms are for the turbo itself. Worn actuators usually give erratic boost, and...
