The driver's door on my 8L A3 has been reversed into by some **** who doesn't know how to park in a supermarket. Then, two weeks later, parked outside my house and I received a dinner plate sized impact on the rear bumper.
Looked around for a replacement door, and none to be found. In the...
OK, first off, I do speed, but only when conditions in my earlier post are met.
It is obviously not a fact of life, else everyone would be banned!! It's not a case of dealing with it, it's a case of behaving and when you misbehave taking the punishment like a man, not whinging because the...
Your statement has the possibility to the uninitiated and ignorant drivers on the roads (not that any here are) to make them think that "it's ok if I stray over the limit cos "I didn't mean to Officer!" "
No one does got out purely to do some good speeding, but the majority of the time one...
I told the guys to harden the f*%k up too, but they just said "they ain't gonna fit!" So we moved to the front, and needing to re-use the the spring seats couldn't get the damn nut off the top!
Why is it every time you do a new job, you can guarantee you need a tool that you don't have...
Afternoon all, just fitting my rear arb and the clamps to hold it to the rear beam aren't big enough!!

The law MUST be written for the lowest common denominator i.e. the Moris Minors still out on the road. If the limits were raised to factor in improved technology, the users of those older cars would automatically, without a...
Thanks for the reply!
3. don't have one of those. Will an offset ring spanner work?
5. It's the inner CV boot. I've got the spline bolts M6 all the way up to something like M18. Bolts are M12 IIRC. Do you have/could you link a picture of the tool?
Evening all! This will be quite a long post, so please bear with me. :)
In preparation for the weekend's spannering (CV boot, springs, shocks and ARBs), i'm looking in to a few things.
1. the standard rear shocks have caps on the top. Are these to be replaced? I'm imagining they are...
I've just got my A3 back from its annual service and have found that there are a few things broken with it that need sorting for the MOT. The offside rear spring is broken, the ARB bushes are worn and the nearside inner CV boot is split.
The MOT runs out on the 18th and I'm trying...
