I’ve just sold my A4 2.0 TDI SE Technik 2013.
Paid £13,500 in 2017 with 41k on the clocks
Sold £4,800 last week with 117k on the clock privately on Facebook marketplace. Autotrader reckoned I could get £5,600 - but I wanted a quick sell, so listed for £4,950 and I was swamped with interest. It...
I recently had the rear wiper motor replaced on my B8.5 Avant.
I don’t know if the garage bodged it or I’m just unlucky as earlier this week the wiper arm snapped off.
I can see you can buy replacements reasonably cheaply at £25. Are they easy to fit, any special tools required?
Firstly, it’ll be a B8.5.
Is it SE or SE Technik? Get the Technik if you can stretch. Sat Nav would be included with that, not sure about SE.
Ignore official Audi advice on cam belt. I got mine done at 60k. About £400 at a good Audi indie including water pump.
The 134bhp engine won’t...
I guess it depends how many passengers you have in the car.
I’ve been to France for two weeks, just me and my wife in an A3 Sportback with the seats down, road bike in with the wheels off and full of luggage.
Now I have kids I transport like this...
Realistically, how long will a battery stay charge when the car is not being used for a while?
My car has 114k on the clocks and is usually doing 500 miles per week, but it has basically been mothballed for the past few weeks and for the foreseeable future with working from home arrangements.
As the title suggests. Rear wiper has stopped working on my B8.5 Avant. The spray mechanism still works, but it doesn’t move and is stuck on the middle of the rear windscreen.
Is the motor knackered, if so - easy to replace for a novice?
I use Audi indie and they reset service indicator. Don’t see the point in the online service book. I have reams of invoices for all work done. I get the oil changed every 10,000 instead of variable anyway.
I drive 25-30k miles a year in mine. It’s my workhorse. Mine is a 2013 model with now 111k on the clock - I’ve only just replaced front discs and pads for first time. Lots of motorway miles!
Cambelt - 5 years or 60k miles whichever is soonest. Ignore official Audi advice.
Lol. Not sure on other options, but given the clutch and flywheel is pants at standard torque level it seems pointless chucking another grand or so on another standard clutch at that increase in torque and power.
Happy New Year!
This question relates to a manual diesel B8.5.
Essentially, car is on 110k miles and I have an option to purchase my father in law’s 17 plate Audi A6 Avant Black Edition in April 2021. Therefore I am likely to be hitting around 140k miles in the A4 by then.
