    Air suspension, issues, problems, experience?

    Hi guys. After driving A3 8P for 11 years I'm planning on buying A6 C7. Now, I've found a good model, 3.0tdi 272cv dsg, but with air suspension. I'm wondering what are the general experiences with air suspensions? 1. Maintenance vs regular suspension? Do I need to expect a lot of expensive...

    Turbo whine, rebuild and whine again

    My 1.9tdi with around ~122k km (75k miles) developed a turbo whine. First it started on downspool, when revving it in idle and releasing the pedal, then on ~1600->1000 rpm you could hear a whine. After that it started becoming worse and worse. I took the car for the turbo rebuild, and...

    Turbo whistle reving down to idle, 1.9tdi

    I have visited two mechanics and both said it's the turbo :( But the whistle is only the beginning and that I shouldn't worry, to drive it as I used to so far and if it gets worse then repair or replace turbo...

    Disk pads replacement and spungy, weak break pedal?

    Fluid was probably ~20k miles old. I don't know what they did when they replaced them and what procedure they used, it is an official dealer so I guess they use the correct procedure :( I will test it tomorrow, maybe even record it and share it here. I've searched online for the symptoms and...

    Disk pads replacement and spungy, weak break pedal?

    Hi guys I've taken my Audi to the stealers and they've replaced my disk pads (both fronts and rears).

    1.9tdi oil temperatures?

    Hi guys, I've changed my thermostat recently (old one was opening on low temperatures) and did an oil change + belts change. Now, my temperature gauge is dead set on 90C once the engine has warmed up and everything seems kinda fine. But, one thing I did notice is, if I check the oil...

    Part number needed from ETKA? :-/

    I want to see if the trye pressures are same for different types of engines - for example I'm running 1.9tdi. I guess if it's smaller engine like 1.6 tyre pressure in front will be lower, so if you could post photos of your sticker on S-line or S3 models I would appreciate it....
