    Alloy Help

    I'll openly admit I'm a bit of a novice with alloys and I know there's "willtheyfit" but it might as well be a different language. I'm looking at some new alloys (20 inch, 9.0j and ET45). I have the stock S5 alloys which I believe are 19 inch 8.5j and ET32. In layman's terms what does the...

    Machine Polishing - Safety

    Found this quite interesting video on machine polishers and I think it helps dispel the fears many new people (myself included) have about using a machine polisher for the first time. Of course still have to be careful but I know I found it interesting and might help others. Sent from my...

    Topping up oil - S5

    Hi all, Relatively stupid question, I'll admit. Now the S5 (and presumably A5) have no dipstick from what I can see so only way to check oil is via the MMI or MyAudi App. After about 4k miles driving my Oil level is about 5/8 full so looking to top it up. However due to the absence of the...

    Facelift Audi Dealer "High Quality" service

    Apologies wasn't too sure where to post this but thought I'd post it here as it's the most active part of the forum, and although it relates to my dad's A1 I'm sure it'll be of interest to those here.

    Saying goodbye to the S3

    So after having owned by S3 for about 15 months now, I've managed to secure a deal to sell my S3 and got a cracking deal on a virtually brand new S5 coupe (18 plate with 3000 miles), the monthly payments and huge saving on my insurance actually makes me financially better off each month (go...

    Engine Coolant

    Potentially a stupid question, not particularly that clued up on the engineering side of cars [emoji14] My engine coolant level in the S3 is right near the minimum level. In terms of topping this up can I just get some generic coolant from Halfords or do I need something more bespoke from...
