    The mirrors would look good. Thou the black mirrors does make it unique as the common mod is to put the s4 chrome/mirrors on. As for the rear lower diffuser yet it comes off. And if you look at it, its actually a lot easier to take off than you may think :)

    Just fitted an RS4 Rear Sway Bar - WOW!

    My advice would be don't believe everything you read. What people say is one thing but the effect it has may be another. And that's not to say the 034 kit isn't good. I am just saying its kinda ripple effect and causing the opposite effect well in theory at least. So you may be thinking what...

    Power steering fluid...what is best?

    Hi Hoosay, There is only one fluid to use and that is the dedicated power steering fluid from Audi. I know it may seem ridiculous but other power steering fluids have and can cause damage to your system. You can get the fluid direct from TPS or from your local Audi dealer. The care on the...

    Cold start and short run "rattle" sounds

    okay to comment on the first and second clip. the noise on the over run you are hearing is the chain and tensioner. because when u reving the engine is taking up the slack in the chain and when u let go its the noise of the chain is getting loose again and potentially hitting the housing of...

    Cold start and short run "rattle" sounds

    Im not to sure as to what you asking. As I said the noise from the second video is normal. Aka when you turn off the vehicle you hearing the long beep noise as you call it. = Its is just related to the electronics as well as the the direct injection. As to the rattle snake tail sound not sure...

    Cold start and short run "rattle" sounds

    Thats alot of miles, and if the chain and tensioner has never been replaced I would possibly say that your issue is right there. As for coil packs its good that you have the revised ones but as i say its still has a miss but this could all be related from the tensioner being out abit. With out...

    Cold start and short run "rattle" sounds

    Listening to those videos you have posted.. The first one for sure sounds like the chain and tensioner possibly cam follower. The second video of the buzzing noise or zing noise is normal so thats nothing to worry about.

    Cold start and short run "rattle" sounds

    I hear numerous things wrong. First it has a horrible miss so id check plugs and coil packs as they renowned for popping coil packs unless they on the latest revision then they not so bad. Whats the mileage on the vehicle? That second video sounds like your timing chain and tensioner. Also...

    Well it depends how you go about it. You can replace the entire arm with a Audi or lemforder part which I cant recall off hand the price. Or u can remove the arm and push the bush out. Which will be a cheaper option.

    Sure thing. So the above link you saw from Audizine that the more proper way. The faster way doesnt involve any mess and literally can be done in under 5 mins. All you need is a syphon, turkey blaster or some form of suction item. Then all you do is suck out as much old fluid out of the power...

    Hey Sonny, Sorry to hear you having these issues. I can suggest that usually the knocking you refering to can be the front lower rear bush that can cause the knocking as there is a knock plate in place that when the bush it is worn and it will knock against it. And usually this can be felt by...

    Bubbling arch, Audi paint offer

    Basically what it is. They have a guy with a paint depth gauge come to your car, which the gauge can measure the thickness of the paint ie paint clear coat. And he basically has a look around the area in which you feel Audi/Vw needs to carry out the corrosion warranty. But basically with the...
