    A4 Quattro Turbo - Poorly...Need a good place to get it fixed

    cheers!, A tad too far!, Electrics box of tricks in the rear footwell filled with water and knackered it - seems that box is responsible for the alarm, central locking, electric windows etc. I reckon it needs a new box and the jobs a good un! Probably wrong though!! Cheers, Toby

    Morning all, does anyone know where i can obtain a passenger side Front fog lamp for a 99 Facelift A4 Quattro Sport? Mine has smashed somehow. Or can i just replace the glass without being fleeced by Audi. Cheers, Toby

    This is very strange.......

    I have a 99 A4 1.8T Quattro Sport and have had handling issues for ages. It has had the twitchiest steering i have ever known on a car and in some cases was irritating to drive. I have twice taken it to Walton Audi who were very helpful but on both occasions could not find what the problem was...

    Driver Info Display - 99 A4

    Just found this - doesn't really shed any more light in the subject though. Someone must have done a cheeky swapout without being made bankrupt in the process...

    Driver Info Display - 99 A4

    Cheers Patrick - i think i will keep my eyes closed slightly when i drive ( i may not notice it then) whereas i think i may notice a dent in my bank account for £800! Neil, i like your website and the car pics, I wondered why your MPG was 20 and so decided to have a look at what you have...

    Driver Info Display - 99 A4

    Hi All, my driver Info display on the dash starts to dim out in areas when the car has been on for a while. I guess that it gets warm and fades, i am sure that i have seen a post on this before but cant find it. Anyone know the cost of replacing and whether the dash has to be unplugged etc to...

    Four bleeps

    Hi All, Now married and back from hols.... my ****** car was silent for weeks and then the other day it bleeped!! I have no idea what the problem is, Audi don't seem to know either! The alarm sound is rather odd - gone are the days off the "Moss" alarm system from Halfords that seemed to go...

    does the A4 saloon have fold down rear seats?

    I would agree on the "trip" issue. Stupid isn't it?? Golf's have had a 2 setting trip for years - started big bumper 1990?? i think. setting 1 was a continous setting like in the Audi, setting 2 reset itself if you didn't use the car for a couple of hours!!

    Should I buy an Elise?

    Excellent cars. Extremely good fun and very nice to drive considering the "spartan" interior. My mate bought an "Exige" a couple of months ago.(gets bored of cars very easily) but can't get enough of this little machine. This one has had a Bell & Colville upgrade and has a 0-60 of 3.7...

    dashboard lights

    It could of course be the bulb(s) in the dash itself. My last Audi i changed the dash bulbs about 4 times in 2 years. Most people cannot be bothered. A lttle more involving than changing a fuse unfortunately and requires removal of the dash binnacle to change the little blighters. Check also...

    Good form, cheers to all. My Handbook refers to the pre-facelift model which mine is not. Will get a new one from Audi when it is serviced next week. Jeezus i love my motor. Toby

    Couple of general questions........

    When i start my car in the morning, after a couple of secs i get 4 beeps from what sounds like the boot?? (doesn't have parking sensors) - any ideas? Also when sitting in traffic for a while and the car gets hot, occassionally one of the tappetts gets particularly loud. Oil level is fine etc...

    Felt more like slippage. Normally pulling right or left out of a junction is ace as it doesn't wheelspin just masses of grip. I haven't really served it up though really hard. Any nutters out there who regularly put these things sideways or can shed more light on Quattro systems? Luvverly, Toby
