    Selling used faulty drive shafts

    A surcharge is usually given for old diveshafts when buying new ones, does anyone know if anywhere takes old ones off your hands without prior purchase? I have a pair of faulty originals that I swapped out with some second hand ones that need getting rid of. Cheers

    What the average price for a service from an independant Audi garage?

    Audi main dealers will price match any quote from a garage within 15 miles using genuine audi parts. I emailed a local VW/Audi specialist garage and was quoted £200 +VAT for a 'major service' and sure enough Audi matched it...

    Throttle Issue - 2.0 TDI BKD

    Interesting, how did you manage to figure that out? My bkd has a really slow pickup between 1000 to 2000 and I was wondering if it was a similar issue?

    Hey Chrisk did you ever get to the bottom of this?

    Launch Control?

    Fair enough, I've been reading a lot of conflicting discussions about it, many people saying it isn't on the TDI 140, others saying you have to do it just right. I'm going to Audi dealership on Monday so will try and get a definitive answer then. It's not something I'm fussed about but just...

    Arm rest repair kit.

    When you say "sliding down" do you mean the whole armrest is dropping? The armrest is height adjustable, if you put the handbrake down, that will allow the armrest to drop to it's lowest setting and reset the ratchet, then (if it's working correctly) will stay at whatever height you bring it to...

    Launch Control?

    I've got the paddles and the selector is of the later style, but I gave it a go the other day (followed the instructions to the letter) and it didn't seem to like it, engine laboured at first then went up to around 2400, then when I took my foot off the brake the revs dropped and it kinda...

    Is this normal s-line height? :/

    If you're parked on level ground with no load in the car then the spacing should be even on all wheels, I think there are little white marks on the springs that can help you identify them but I can remember which ones are what.

    Is this normal s-line height? :/

    Looks a bit high to me unless they've just been changed as they take a few weeks to settle down.

    Arm rest repair kit.

    Neodymium magnets have worked a treat for me, for a couple of quid on ebay I bought round ones 5mm in diameter and 1.5mm thick, fixed 2 pairs in position with araldite. I'll upload a pic shortly.

    Launch Control?

    Ah so it looks like I do have it, although it says "Applies to vehicles with direct shift gearbox AND 6-cylinder engine", does that mean it's a no for my 4-cylinder engine then?

    Launch Control?

    Isn't it something they added post facelift? I need to check my manual as I thought I didn't have it and never wanted to risk damaging anything by trying it.
