    RNS-E and SDHC that work!

    I've used Transcend brand 32gb class 10 from Amazon uk, they work fine in two mk2 RNSEs I've tried them in, formatting them FAT32 in Windows 7 x64

    What to check when feeling vibration over 75mph?

    at 80,000 miles I would start by replacing both of the rubber doughnut couplers in the propshaft, they're a common cause of rumble/wobble. Also since you did this 75mph 'spinup' test without wheels - did you get the chance to check all four drive shafts for bends? a slight bend in any one can...

    Haldex Service

    NO NOT ADD ANYTHING TO THE OIL! sorry but that had to be said LOUD, the Haldex unit works by having predefined friction in the wet clutch pack, anything which modifies that friction could cause the unit to malfunction, use only the correct oil from VAG/TPS dealer. I recently changed all the oil...

    Andymac's stealth sub in a 3.2 Sportback?

    Col FYI My car was fitted with an Alpine CVA1003R in a two times single DIN facia adapter (with a pocket in one), it didn't look too awful closed but the screeen mostly covered the vents when open, wasn't touchscreen and you had to use a IR remote control to operate the satnav. The NVE077 nav...

    Andymac's stealth sub in a 3.2 Sportback?

    Cheers for the info Andy. I guess I'll have to measure up very carefully and see if I can figure out how to fit anything. I did manage to find space for the small Alpine PDX amp (and a satnav module) by making a little platform to bridge across the uneven metal battery box cover and support the...

    wheel offset and tyre sizes, need info please :)

    I really like the look of 19s but given the less than perfectly smooth roads we have all over Britain I think I've settled on getting the 18s, which should update the look of the car a bit, I might add a set of side skirts, chin spoiler, rear 'diffuser' panel and decent coat of autoglym to clean...

    wheel offset and tyre sizes, need info please :)

    Hi guys/girls I've been hanging around here looking the pics with RS6 style wheels, I'm thinking about getting some for my '55 SB but I'm a bit confused about wheel offset and tyre sizes, I know that Audi make an RS6 style alloy in 7.5 x 18 for the 2010 A3s and that will fit perfectly, err...
