    Reducing wheel size while fitting winter tyres

    Thanks all, I've found a calculator online that tells me a 17 inch rim with 45 profile tyre will give the same rolling circumference as my current R19 35 profile. There are very few winter tyres with a 255 width in that rim and profile so I would have to go down to 245. So, I need to work out...

    Reducing wheel size while fitting winter tyres

    Yep, that's the plan. But would 19 down to 17 be too big a step? My old C5 A6 on 17 inch rims seemed to handle just as well as this C6 but was much less crashy. It was a quattro sport and my 3.0 Le Mans presumably is the same general quattro sport idea. So I'm wondering if putting 17 inch...

    Reducing wheel size while fitting winter tyres

    Hey all, I've been enjoying my 2009 3.0 Le Mans for 3 years now. The only thing I don't love about it is the crashy ride on rough country roads where I live. It's great on good tarmac. So, I have been toying for a while with going down from 19inch to either 18 or 17 wheels. My C5 Sport was...

    Dog mesh from parcel shelf??

    OK, many thanks. Had a look at it seems a lot denser than the earlier one. So harder to see through? also, shape would suggest our mad terrier would easily get round the outer ends!! may go for a metal one. Travall ones look good. I have one of their boot floor protectors and they are very...

    Dog mesh from parcel shelf??

    Hi all, my old C5 had a built in mesh barrier but my new (to me) C6 doesn’t have that!! can it be purchased separately? Do you have to replace the whole unit for one with a mesh built in or does it fit in the small space just ahead of the boot cover roller mech? cheers, Al

    Audi A6 C6 - could lost key be in the car?

    Thanks. Key has turned up. I rang main dealer there. £160 for emergency key and £260 for full Monte. Not as much as I thought so I'm just going to get a full second key. Cheers, Al.

    Audi A6 C6 - could lost key be in the car?

    So, this is a Jan 2009 Le Man 3.0 TDI A6. I bought it with only one key and that key has disappeared. Having pulled the house apart, the only place I can think it might be is in the car somewhere. The car is locked but I have looked inside as much as I can and can't actually see anything so it...

    Replacement Xenon headlight bulbs for 2009 A6

    Hey all, Anyone recommend a good source for replacement bulbs? One of my bulbs has gone so will replace both. Coming up @ £110 per side from Eurocarparts for a Philips option but I see loads of alternatives out there. Car is a 2009 A6 3.0 Quattro Le Mans. Well filled engine bay so bulbs are...

    2003 A6 No radio reception

    OK thanks, so that's an easy change but wouldn't the side window antennae pick up the slack when the roof fails or is it the main antennae? I guess it's there for a reason! Al

    2003 A6 No radio reception

    Hey all, Haven't posted for quite a while but I am the owner from new of a 2003 Audi A6 1.8T Quattro Sport. Now on 140,000 miles and aiming for twice that. So, my radio picks up nothing other than Radio 2 and then very faintly (just been listening briefly to Tony Blackburn - didn't think he...

    Audi A6 - alarm light on door flashing rapidly

    It was a bit damp in there. All dried out with a hairdryer but no change in the flashing alarm lights on the doors?

    Audi A6 - alarm light on door flashing rapidly

    Hi all, I had a recent problem with my A6 when the join in the pipe taking screenwash to the rear screen separated in the drivers footwell and flooded the floor. I realise that there is a box with an ecu in it in the drivers footwell which I don't think got wet inside (although I haven't...

    rear washer problem

    Hi there, check your passenger footwell carpet. In my A6 (2003 Quattro Sport Avant) the pipe taking water to the rear wash had separated in the front passenger footwell. See my reply today to a much older post about this. Cheers, Allen

    Flooded Passenger Footwell - How to remove carpets

    Hi there, You may have sorted this but just in case... To remove the seat you have to completely undo those two 13mm nuts that you have found under the front of the seat. You're right - the alloy block that they are connected to is part of the seat and does come out with the seat - that's OK...
