    A4 cabriolet.

    Also if the gearbox is a bit dodgy I guess that throws the remap out of the question !! Read it can only handle 229 lb before 2006

    A4 cabriolet.

    There is a reason why I'm going for the entry level a4 cab, Girlfriends 20 and she hasn't got her licence yet! I'd be getting an r32 if I had it my way! She likes the a4 and I was won over yesterday after seeing two and they still seem pretty modern ! I thought it'd be too girly for me but...

    A4 cabriolet.

    Hmmm not liking the sound of that ! I'll stay clear of multitronic. Yeah I'm sure the power will be fine. I won't be scared of a high miler as long as it's got full history!

    A4 cabriolet.

    Within next month I'm planning on getting a 1.8t 168bhp version in auto. I know it's not going to be a rocketship, but what are they like on a whole? High mileage cars an ok buy? Also is it the ko3s turbo? I'm sharing it with my girlfriend, she being from a left hand country is only getting an...

    S4 Running costs

    Thanks for the replys, been helpful. I have a friend mechanic who gives me good rates if something was to go wrong that was beyond me. But I may have to hold off for a while :( If fuel was still at 90p I wouldnt care about 22mpg (thought it may of been a bit higher than that like 24-25ish) I...

    Is £8900 to much to pay?

    I'd get with over 70k miles, as this is normally where the cambelt gets done, if you get a that car ( it should have a new cambelt anyway) then in 20k time youll need a major service on it anyway.

    Is £8900 to much to pay?

    I wouldn't loose sleep about your car not having a full Audi service book either. Been loads of stories about them not replacing any parts at all and still charging. It could happen on a independent garage though..would just be cheaper :rolleyes:

    S4 Running costs

    Thanks mate, Yer theres hardly no electrics to the golf lol And I can easily fix it myself which brings the prices down. Ah they are cheaper than I thought then. I would need to find one that has major items replaced with in the last few years really.

    S4 Running costs

    Hello, Just a quick question, what are the s4's like to maintain in a cost sense? I have got a mk2 golf gti atm that when complete I'm looking at selling, so that isnt exactly cheap to maintain the amount things break! I've seen them going for about £5000, is that a normal price or is that...

    A3 tdi 140, starting problems.

    Cheers mate I'll tell him, I'm not sure but he said they was specialist and that an auto electrician came out, so prices just added up, dont think they done any repairs or changed any parts.

    A3 tdi 140, starting problems.

    Yer it's like a spray, never used it, but if your car won't start, use it and if it starts it's likely a fuelling issue, if it doesn't then it's spark. I don't know but could it be a dodgy maf? Sometimes doesn't recognize the air coming in and under fuels. Erm it's weird though!

    A3 tdi 140, starting problems.

    Ermm, thats what I said, it sounds fuel pressure related, but if it was the fuel pump it'd do it often, instead it does it when he doesn't use for a day or two. Yer putting foot down on the accelerator maybe adding extra fuel needed to start it. These modern cars are a pain in the ****! lol

    A3 tdi 140, starting problems.

    My mates audi a3 140 tdi doesn't start sometimes, he notices that if not used for a day that in the morning it doesn't start. It's been to the garage twice and £500 spent and it still does it. He gets it to start using easy start but said he had to have the accelerator fully down. So it is a...

    0-60 remapped s3

    Mk1 chopper, yer thats the book time for the kr lump. Cannot find the video, think it was top gear or fifth gear, but they raced a newer engined one with 20k miles on it vs one with like 80k on it and the older engine blew it away, with a 0-60 of just over 7 secs. Just too much money keeping...

    0-60 remapped s3

    Would of thought itd be more equal in standard form, ive got a 2.0l so bit faster than the 1.8. 7 secs is the norm for a 1.8 with most people getting 6.5 from 2.0l isnt 6.5 s3 225 time? I need some revs in my life, fed up with 4k limiter in my van lol its been off the road since august ! But...

    0-60 remapped s3

    I'm not really too bothered about the 0-60 as its not like everyone stops at 60, its 70 :sly: so can afford to go into 3rd anyway lol Just wanted to know really if itd be same or better than the golf, after 80, as thats where the golf starts to slow down the s3 would eat it up anyway. Not...
