Thanks for that
Looking at the price of that you have made my mind up to forget it!
The cost will just push the price up way too much for what I am after paying!
to cover around 1500 miles a year its not really worth it
My brother has a A4 avant with the above engine fitted
it has around 130k on the clock and he has offered me it fairly cheap!
I have read bits about oil pump failures and did warn him before he bought it but he went ahead anyway
I know you can buy parts to replace the oil pump and balance...
I got a text off my mate today telling me his car is struggling to get over 70! he says it drives fine otherwise just when it gets to 70 it struggles to pull!
My initial thought is the turbo
He is away at the min so not had chance to drive it or plug in VCDS to check things out...
when I took one on a test drive I took it on a runway ;) and had it up to 90 and it was quieter than my A4 so yours could be due to tyres I didnt notice any more noise from the rear whilst driving
Is anyone interested in a set of HID's out of my A4 I have a set of...

as above its surface rust and sun/shadow
rust can be a sign of both cheap and expensive discs!!
expensive ones have a very high amount of iron content which helps braking but they rust really quick

the only way to check it is to jack it up and give it a good wobble to see if it has play! or go to a MOT test station and get them to check it on the ramp
you can get the bearings for about £35 - £90
if you are going to fit it yourself then give me a shout I have some top tips for ya seen...
is this all stationary? or whilst driving?
if stationary then it will go down a little while you sap some of the heat from the coolant whilst driving it should remain steady ish or drop a little then come back up
£250 for VCDS

yes the ebay jobby is very limited but will do the torsion value and some code reading
I may even have one you can have for postage I will need to check
