After travelling 3 hours on thurday afternoon to view a 2003 2.5TDI B6 Q Avant which I had seen on internet, After asking seller if there are any problems with car, response was other than the damage to 2 doors (which was visable on pics) the car is ok.
So a quick scan and this is what I found...
Hi. I have my newly coated wheels in the shed with no tyres on them.
What's the best polish or treatment or wax to keep them in good condition?
And is it better to detail them before mounting the tyres?
Hi, I have now fitted 3 sets of quality discs and pads to the front if my a6, each time the discs warp within 5000 miles.
At first I thought it was the quality of the discs but Pagid are a pretty good.

Hi, my A6 candles(thats what they seem like!) need an upgrade. I know theres loads on the market. I want to avoid the fake xenons, and cant afford real xenons!

Had thermostat issues, got sorted out less than 12000 miles ago,

I've got a set of 18" final edition alloys to go on my c5 estate which is light blue metallic. A friend of mine is refurbing them for me at the weekend.

Hi, Any of you got factory cruise control?
Just wondering, when you turn on (move switch to left) do you get a light on dash telling you its on?
Reason is mine works fine, but no light, on all previous VAG I've had there is always been a symbol. My A6 doesnt. Or just bulb gone?

Hi, probably covered before but is it all engine codes that suffer with the cams wearing?
or just certain ones?
Mines a AYM, a little concerned!

I am taking my rails off in the summer to have the roof painted, want the general opinion on filling holes or putting back on?

Hi, I have been give a Genuine Audi ipod adaptor system for my sym 2, all wired up as per instructions, works fine.

Hi, does anyone know if I can change the delay for the headlight washers work, at the moment, with the lights on I only have to operate the washers for a little over a second, and the headlights get a squirt. Would like to change it to maybe 5 seconds.
Is this possible?
Hi all, I've had an annoying noise from the front of my 2001 2.5 tdi for ages.
Driving me up the wall, no play in any joints, nothing worn.
Was running out of ideas, decided to take glove box out, glad I did! The noise was the fan in its bearing, had axial play. So chuffed to find it!
