    Mk1 tt spluttering under load (1.8t 225bhp)

    Hi! got some issues with my girlfriends tt, it has a bad splutter under load/boost, at its worst in third gear about 3000rpm which at times makes the eml light flash. I've plugged in vcds and it just came up with random multiple misfire. It had new plugs about 5k ago. Wired thing is, it's...

    hi all, was just wondering if the milltek cat-back exhaust sounds any good on the 3.0 v6? as i think the standard system sounds a bit tinny, and fancy a bit of a deeper note! or does anyone know of any other exhausts that are any good? cheers! :)

    Oem Xenon lights dim!

    Hello! since I have had my a4 cab (not long) the Xenons have been poor brightness to say the least! ... Think it must be the bulbs that are old/worn? I've never seen a problem like this before though, in my experience the ballast failing causes igniting faults and flickering, and bulbs go...
