Having done the full detail I’ve fallen in love with my car again.
I’m treating it to an alloy refurb, but going gunmetal not chrome.
The window surround will be the weakest part, I want to go darker: Do I wrap or replace?
Anyone done either?
2010 3.0 TDI pre facelift Sportback.
After 9 weeks of it sitting in the garage having a full paint correction detail, I took the A5 out at night.
Dash warning saying OS headlight issue and sure enough when I got home no light.
When I switched it from auto to manual the light kicked in, is...
After a repeated fault with my EGR my garage is suggesting bypassing the EGR and removing the DPF.
Anyone had any problems after doing this?
From what I'm told I should get more power and a better exhaust / engine sound.
It's either this or a new EGR.
Started @ 6:30 this morning :sleeping:
Siren going off but no flashing lights - wouldn't turn off even when I started the car.
I've had the car in the garage and cleaned all the door, boot and bonnet catches :cold:.
LED alarm door light in the drivers door blinks seven times and then goes...
After a slight altication, I could do with removing the front bumper, to check all is as it should be underneath.
I had to push the bumper back under the wing and the headlamp washer 'alien' wasn't sitting quite right.
I've searched and can't see a 'how to' write up anywhere. Did it...
Not my idea of parking sensors but perhaps Suzuki think differently?
Found this at the train station when I returned after an already stressful day.
Damaged bumper and pushed the bracket into the quarter panel.
Driver denies leaving it parked like that - continental drift is obviously...
Well I've decided to enable drive select but wanted to do it properly!
Has anyone retrofitted the button on the dash (next/near to the ESP button)?
Also so I can order one does anyone have to part number please?
If someone who had this fitted as standard on a pre facelift would pm me their...
sorry if I got you here under false pretences but I'm asking about a steering wheel!
I love the chrome paddle shifters but wanted an opinion on round or flat bottom steering wheel choice!
What would you choose?
Not sure if this has been covered before but on my Wife's A1 there is green 'algae type' stuff on the side windows.
Quite easy to clean with a microfibre but comes back quickly.
Is there a way to stop/slow it?
Looking to put the facelift chrome (slightly larger) paddle shifters on my steering wheel.
Not a great fan of the flat bottom wheel so just looking at changing the paddles.
I've read how to get the wheel off but is it straight forward to change the shifters?
Well after promising myself one for 12 months I finally bought the grill
First question - What are the best (white) fog light bulbs as I may as well change them whilst the bumper is off?
Second question - Do I spray the crash bar black before fitting it? Car is Phantom black btw.
Hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year.
Santa bought me some early pressies so spent 3 hours today compounding and polishing.
Will he bring my other wish list goodies? Doubt it TBH:shrug:!
just got to the train station car park and my parking brake light on both dash and switch is flashing!
When I start it it says malfunction as above.
Anyone else had this, Audi only serviced it a couple of months ago?
Good job I'm off tomorrow
Very jealous of my wife's A1 as it has every extra I want on my A5 and £10k cheaper!
Only thing it hasn't got is chrome surround window switches, has anyone got or retrofit these?
Can't see any on fleabay but I'm pretty sure the tops just flick off?
It's her birthday soon so would be a great...
