    I’m toying with the idea of swapping my 2015 19” gloss black black edition plus alloys for the standard 19” black edition rotors if anyone is interested? I’d only be interested in swapping if there is someone out there with genuine rotors in good condition from a 2013 A5 or newer. I’ve...

    What have Audi done to the 3.0tdi exhaust!!!!

    Am I wrong or have Audi dropped the dual exhaust on the new Audi A5 3.0tdi? If this is right, why would they do this? The dual exhaust really makes the 3.0tdi look the part imo! They most be scraping the bottom of the barrel of the spare parts bin as they come to the end of production!

    Integrated Dashcam

    Does anyone know if there is a company out there that makes a good discrete integrated hd dashcam rather than a bulky camera stuck on the windscreen with wires trailing over the dash?

    Has anyone had a genuine Audi active sport exhaust fitted to their 2.0tdi?

    Hi, only about 6 weeks to wait until my new BE+ A5 Coupe 2.0tdi arrives, but already wondering if I've made a mistake scrimping and opting for the 2.0tdi rather than the 3.0tdi! But at £4k more and lower mpg I've tried to be a little sensible as I do quite a few miles! Although I really wish I...

    Audi S3 8L Alloy Brake Pedals

    I've seen a few MK1 S3's with what look like MK1 TT alloy clutch/brake/accelerator pedals fitted, which I think looks really smart. Does anyone know if this is a straight forward swap and how much the stealers might charge for such luxury items? Thanks
