    DTUK TCU+ gearbox flash review

    Thanks SfC, I am sure it will be a complete hoot in the summer and with a 450w B&W system in it I find my 16yr old son has to turn down the volume as (the sub is in the passenger footwell) and the vibrations give him a headache...poor dear!

    DTUK TCU+ gearbox flash review

    Apologies for posting on an Audi Forum (I do own a remapped Audi A6/C6 however). I fitted a TCU+ gearbox flash to my 2014 Jaguar XK Dynamic R last November (I purchased the car in Oct 18), appreciate not the best time to do it since really can't drive in a spirited fashion with 510PS to the...

    Thinking about a C6

    My understanding of the C6 with ACC (from Chris on another forum) is that the telltale sign is the 4 inch black square sensor below the numberplate. Looking on autotrader there are supposedly 51 with ACC but when you look at the pictures only one has ACC if the black sensor also applies to...

    Thinking of selling where would you suggest ?

    Don't touch autotrader, had my jag on their and just scam messages for the 4 weeks :( Defo pistonheads or on here. Would get a better price if we had more of the slippery stuff...was positively balmy today :)

    battery discharge

    Test of battery chargers seen here: Battery chargers tested | Product Reviews | Auto Express It took a full 5 days to totally recondition my 07 battery, so lucky I had another car to use, but as we know it's best to slow/intelligently charge our cars as opposed to getting the most robust...

    Sold the C5, here's the new C6

    Invest in a decent battery charger, something from the CTEK range (3.5 upwards) and charge the battery for a few days if possible, could be that it's fine and just needs some deep conditioning and certainly don't replace unless it won't take a charge. The charger will serve you well for many...

    Audi a6 2010 seats

    Mine still look new after 100k miles and the leather seems thick and hardwearing. Less so on my Jag with oatmeal leather, I find that lighter colours wear worse and suffer more UV/heat damage than any other colour, also with black an scuffs can be covered easily (read as black permenant...

    battery discharge

    100% on MMI battery display isn't a good gauge as to battery charge/condition as it's totally ballpark. Mine read 100% and took 5 days on a CTEK charger for that to advise of full charge/peak condition. I ensure that any periods of non-use greater than 72hrs I have the battery on charge...

    Anyone considered Terraclean?

    Jim If they have MOT facilities get them to do an emissions test before and after (also ask if they'll test after 1000 miles), that way you can see the emissions improvements in real terms (which some feel don't exist). As you know there those that require empirical evidence, and your garage...

    what alloys???

    ^^^ Chris am confused as always thought the larger the wheel the harsher the ride (since you'd have less rubber to act as a cushion)? Coupled with the facts that: 1) Tyre choice is at least halved when you move up to 19's and furthr halved at 20, so there's a lot more choice at 18 2) Larger...

    Audi A6 warranty

    I bought my 07 3.0 A6 SE quattro privately and am too considering Warranty Direct, I think they quoted me £650 for a year and £1100 for 2yrs, weirdly there was no greater discount for 3yrs. Personally I'd go for an indy repair now yours is outside of warranty..depends which is closest to you...

    Transmission Fluid for 07 3.0 TDi Quattro Tip - Price comparison

    ZF say every 80k miles, however if you've bought yours 2nd hand you'll not be aware of how it was used and any problems For example: If it has a towbar it's logical to assume it's been used to tow, if so they say every 30k miles if half of that has been towing If the engine has overheated in...

    Transmission Fluid for 07 3.0 TDi Quattro Tip - Price comparison

    Fishy, you're right in about 99% of cases, however there are some transmission places that have the facility to pump new fluid through the torque converter effectively purging it of all old oil...when it runs clean they then stop. Bristol don't have this but will do the standard job for £280...
