    What have you done to your A4 b6 today?

    Brake tidy up, fitted powdercoated guards, polished star bolts and anti rattle clips whilst off the car. Also gave all the painted surfaces a couple of coats of turtle wax

    Lovely as always Dan. What site are you using to host your pics mate, as the loss of photobucket has killed my project thread. You at AITP10?

    Problems tracking after track rod fitted

    You can't track the car on the drive-way in the air J_sharples, The toe is always going to change as the suspension leg moves up and down due to the distance between the steering rack and where the track rod meets the leg increasing/decreasing. Before you get new suspension, try letting the...

    Front subframe alignment tool tip

    QC, really interested in this, steering has never really quite felt right since I had the sump off. What do you mean though, by factory wheel brace? Any pics of tool or alignment holes. Seems strange that they'd slot the bolt holes and then use a tool.

    1.8t Cabrio K04 turbo upgrade (not the usual rubbish ones)

    Been running the turbo on stock tune and injectors for quite a while now. Albeit with the BEX secondary intercooler, enlarged silicone TIP, panel filter and 2.0T coil packs. I believe this is very much a plug and play turbo however (obviously) for maximum gains I'd say you're looking at the...

    1.8T 190 Misfire... What coils to upgrade to?

    I got the R8 coils and instantly felt a smoother curve through the higher rev range but to be fair the coils I removed were ancient. If you go for the R8/2.0TFSI coil upgrade you need the adapter plates as they're a bit longer (hence the claimed extra punch) and the plates helps locate them...

    New wheels help please! Le Mans 19"

    10mm all round will be fine. I was just giving you the spacing that would fill the arches evenly. I'm not sure you can get 10mm spacers for our cars actually as I seem to recall trying once, they don't make the hub-centric ones as there wouldn't be enough material left for any strength due to...

    New wheels help please! Le Mans 19"

    You want 235 tyres all round, 5mm spacers front and 10mm rear for normal fitment A more aggressive fitment would be 15mm spacers front and 25 rear

    CV joint replacement advice and other recommendations?

    Careful where you go for your gkn's, I asked for gkn in GSF's and they tried to fob me off with some rubbish which I checked online and it had terrible reviews for failures. They were called GS-P IIRC

    Gearbox options - planning to go quattro

    I haven't yet mate. To be honest I'm not looking yet because I don't have time to do all the work for a while. I've also been offered a company car which I'm seriously considering taking. It would mean taking all the pressure off the B6 which I could then garage and take my time with the...
