    Revo remap logs on AGU .

    N75 duty of over 80% is bad!. Basically this is the proportion of how closed the actuator is, so you can read it as a percentage of the exhaust gasses being used to produce boost. If your using 99.6% to generate your boost then you have a boost leak or a duff N75. Had the old AUQ engine which...

    Audi A4 B6 Avant supspention question...

    B5 spring cups will drop the front a further 15mm and even out the gap front to rear. Avants sit a lot lower at the rear for some reason.

    Gear Box & Diff Oil Change

    Had all my fluids replaced at the last service and i have to say GL4 and GL5 fluids are expensive. The mechanic who drained the old out said it was completely broken down and definitely needed replacing. Glad it was done.

    Rear drop links??

    Is there something special about the rear drop links on the B6 Chasis? Its just after getting the priced of nearly £40 each for drop links from Audi, i thought i would look at pattern ones and there are so few around. None on ebay at all, plenty for the B5 and B8. Even Euro carparts want £20...

    Call from Audi about ECU Update?

    There are various parts to the ECU. A tuning remap will only affect the driving side of the car, ie the engine. a dealer remap could cover anything covered by the ECU.

    Who the hell made that decision??

    I would truly love to know who was present at the design meeting where Audi decided that having no brake lights at all, only warranted a yellow light on the dash rather than a red one!!! Got the ABS/ESP lights on today when on a little drive, 5 mins later i get the flashing glow plug. Put the...

    Avant tailgate won't click shut anymore!

    Washer fluid from the wiper affects the micro switch inside. Take the lock out and dry it off and spray with contact cleaner and it will be good as new. In the mean time there is a tiny switch inside which you can flick with the key to make it work for now but you will have to do it every time...

    Armrest catch

    IT is repairable. Getting the lid is about the most difficult part! Separate the two parts of the lid, then assemble all the bits of the catch assuming you have them all. I used JB Weld to fix mine and it worked a treat. Still holding strong after the extremes of temp we had over winter to...

    18" wheels for my avant 2001

    With replacement wheels its likely to be simple economics, 235 tyres are not as common as 225 so they cost more!! If your trying to build a package and want to be competetive, its an easy way to do it.

    Tailgate lock

    Might not be the solenoid, the Avants have problems with the squirter leaking on the boot lock wiring.
