    After a very lengthy search, I've finally found the replacement for my B6. I've owned 2 B6's in ten years, and was very happy with both, I'm certainly going to miss the quattro. I'm not going to miss Audi customer service! I'll still keep an eye on the B6 section, maybe I'll have some knowledge...

    Anyone know how to disconnect the wiring connector from the MAF?

    The recent sale of 1 of my properties has resulted in a nice bit of cash for me to spend on a car. Budget of between £25-30k. So I pop into Audi to have a look. I realise I'm unsure of what exactly I want(a4 saloon or avant, or maybe a new A6 saloon), and I mentioned this when I walked in hoping...

    BBC News App

    Spotted this on the BBC news app today. I would prefer it to be Clarkson, but the hamster would make a great transport secretary too.

    Trek or Specialized

    Totally unrelated to my "Overpayment" post, I have narrowed down my choice of new MTB to a Trek Fuel EX7 or a Specialized Camber Expert. The Trek is £100 dearer, is it worth the extra? I have riden both bikes and they both feel good, I can hardly tell them apart. What do you fellow MTB's think?

    Overpayment dilemma

    So I'm doing my self-assessment for the tax man and I'm going through my payslips and I notice that i was overpaid 1 month. We were given a 2% annual increase which was back-dated a few months, but a few people never got it payed in their May pay, so they were payed it in June - except I got it...

    MOT and engine light.

    I have an issue with my car that only disappears when the MAF is unplugged. This causes the engine management light to stay on, will they fail it because the light is on? Unplugging the MAF is the only way the car runs perfectly, it loses power when it's connected.

    Bootlid badges

    Anyone have the measurements for the position of the badges on the bootlid? Just got my car back from bodyshop and they've put the badges on wrong. It's a 2.5TDi Quattro. The A4 looks higher than the 2.5TDi which in turn looks higher on the 2 side than on the I side.

    Hard starting

    My car takes quite a lot of turns to start when it's been standing overnight. It can sometimes take about 5 seconds before it will fire up, and there is a fair amount of pale smoke fir a few seconds when it does fire up. Anyone have any ideas what it could be? Will it show up on a diagnostic scan?

    My car is poorly

    Ok, this is a strange one. Car is as per sig. From a standing start all is ok, there is the slight delay and a bit of turbo lag until about 1200rpm as characteristic of this car but it's normal and has been like this since new. However, once on the move, all is not well. I can be pootling along...

    Stuck abroad?

    Anyone else stuck abroad at the moment? We are in Malaga, were supposed to fly back on sat 17th, now booked on a flight on 24th. Gotta praise easyjet, they've put us up in a 4* hotel with meals included which is jolly good of them. I'm really glad we didn't fly with a certain Irish budget...

    Car is due a service, any recommendation in Manchester? I used to use Awesome, but I was messed around by them the last time. Their work is good, buy their organisational skills let them down last time round and I'm a bit hesitant to use them again. So, am I left with a main dealer, or is...

    17" Alloys - tyre width?

    I have a spare set of 5 star alloys that I think are 7.5J width. They have 235/45/17 tyres on at the moment, but does anyone know what the MINIMUM width is that I can use? I want to get some winter tyres for them, and the narrower the better.

    Netgear EVA8000 Media Player

    Anyone got one of these? I have a Netgear NAS that I have all my vids, pics and music stored on, so thought that one of these would be ideal to watch and listen to it all on my plasma/av amp. Good or bad?
