My RS3 saloon is up for sale so I am offering my wheels here before putting them on eBay.
They are 4 x R8 V10 front wheels 19 x 8.5J ET42, P/N 420601025BD/BB/BF .They are very rare, forged and much lighter than the stock wheels and cost me as follows:
4 wheels sourced individually over a...
It is not tyres nor is it the staggered setup even though some tyres can make the issue slightly worse. However, the root cause is not tyres.
I have had this issue from new on staggered PZeros, square 235 and square 255 PSS4S.
From another thread I commented on:
"I am 99.9% convinced the...
I have EXACTLY the same TC issues now that I had with the staggered PZeros. Hesitating out of junctions, pulling back the power until all 4 wheels hook up etc. It is also the same with my 235 square winter tyre setup.
The issue is not tyres even though there are reports of such with PSS's. I...
After 6 months of searching for 4 individual front wheels from an Audi R8 I finally got around to having them refinished and fitted.
4 x 19 x 8,5J ET42 with PSS4S 255/30/19 Square
Approx. £1350 for the wheels
£200 4 x new TPMS
£840 4 x PSS4S
Also included a pic of...
Which offset did you get? Ldprestige will only recommend 19 x 8.5 ET35 when the stock offset is ET46 for an 8.5J wheel on the saloon. I would have thought the ET45 option would fit better but they won't supply it.?
Hi, the following are wheels codes from an R8 front wheel. Does anyone know the difference? The end letters might be related paint finish but just need to ensure they are essentially the same wheels.
I am using the car to test a series of different fuel and oil technologies. Before I can do that I needed a baseline. Just over 1700 miles on the engine now and first run results below using Shell V-Power.
This engine was run- in within the first 100 miles from new. This was achieved with...
I am 95% certain the issue is due to a little slack or lag in the AWD system. The TC system is detecting a little slip before power is distributed to the correct wheels.
Most likely a downside of a Haldex setup. Never had the problem with torsen AWD Audi's.
Although I agree the Audi is a nicer place to be and the VC a huge advantage, the BMW is better is some areas. To start with the steering wheel has a quality chunky feel to it, the centre console doesn't creak like a witch when you touch it with your left left and the more durable leather seat...
The use of V-power will have helped as combustion quality is better than their standard fuel. This will lower carbonaceous deposits in the combustion and post combustion areas. I can't remember if that engine uses conventional port injection or was one of the first direct injection systems...
It is a very generic question and akin to asking “do drugs work?” The answer is both yes and no. It really depends on your requirements and matching them against the functions required to satisfy those requirements. Resolving a running problem? Preventative maintenance/protection? Routine...
It is a reasonably good fuel. As with momentum it is not additised to deliver the required octane # (i.e. use of MMT, Ferrocene, TMB's etc). It is achieved through the use of octane rich bases providing a more stable MON and RON. Upper cylinder lubrication is good but can be improved and it...
