    Bluetooth Kit

    Hi There, The only thing I would watch for is that the handset cradle is not too close to the head-unit. With my fathers professionally fitted one in his Passat, it is in a pretty standard place to the left of the head-unit. When it rings, connects to a new cell and mid-call you get very loud...

    Engine Splash Guard - Where to Buy??

    Hi Guys, I am having real problems with my B6 A4 not having an engine splash guard. It was not on the car when I bought it and I never thought much of it. When it is wet though and you drive through any kind of puddle it wets the fan belt, the battery light comes on and you lose power brakes...

    key problem

    As far as I remember there was a part number on the blade section of mine, inside on the plastic. I thought it was the remote that was generic and the immobiliser was part number specific. Maybe I have it the wrong way around though. Let me check it tonight when I get home and I'll let you know...
