What bolt came with the kit? I had similar installed on my A4 and here are the bolts I used. The clearance was about 1.5mm between inside edge of the disc and nut. And that included the washers on the inside as well. Also, what discs are you using?
Go for AMG merc 345mm solid discs. Trust me you don't want to get Rs4 discs. Not only size is 365mm but the fact that the cost about the same as a second hand kidney doesn't help. 18z with 345mm on a b7 is close to overkill anyways. Providing you use good quality racing pads.
I had a similar problem kind of. After clean and remap, cel came on 1 day later. Scanned the car and it was B2S1 lambda sensor faulty. Kinda strange but maybe after the clean the car somehow baggers the sponsors?
I think this are the ones.
Basically they are surface mounted PLCC2 smd/led's. try and find best quality ones in the colour of you choice. Also get a few extras, this suckers are very very small and quite easy to **** up the connections so plenty of spares is a good thing ;)...
Have Ds2500 on my Rs4. Track the car twice a month. Wicked pads compared to OEM. Haven't tried Ds3000 yet so can not comment.
I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with 2500s. Granted they need a bit of heat in them before they start working properly but usually 2-3 moderate stops bring...
I my opinion, you hesitated. You should have merged in front of him as soon as you saw the cones. There were plenty of room to do so as you were already in front. Instead you stayed in that lane giving him a chance to catch up and get side by side. Chances are he didn't even see you merge. But...
Ha ha yeah it's always the case! When you want something it's never there when you don't, you have a flood of people offering it ha ha.
Yeah I run 5mm spacers to clear the calipers. All depends on the disc you have!
