    Haldex replacement

    Evening all, To cut a long story short my Haldex got ruined by a main dealer on a brake test dyno and is now u/s - they are accepting no responsibility for the damage. Audi have quoted the car as being a gen 2 Haldex (0AV) but the one I have found to replace it is a gen 4 (0BR), is it a...

    Removing a g65 pressure sensor?

    Lol Plenty of Experts! Definition of an Expert ex = has been, spurt= drip under pressure. Take it to a fully qualified engineer who is experienced in this field - don't attempt it yourself as there is more to the system dynamics than clearly you and these guys know! (sorry to be blunt) Do it...

    Air Con Query

    As a rule of thumb if the air coming out the vents is between 8-12c cooler than the cabin temp when it is on max (lo) and have the fans set to auto, there is no problem and the system is working efficiently. it is just overwhelmed by the heat loading inside the cabin. Don't waste the cash...

    SLK55AMG beating in the wet!

    Incorrect i am afraid Alex the fact that you would be (and he was!) going sideways means you are breaking the limits of adhesion on your driven tyres. Put bluntly great driver or not he had 400bhp pushing through 2contact patches equating to 200+Bhp per driven wheel. The S3 on the other hand...
