    A4 B7 3.0tdi quattro avant s-line

    Hi there, I'm after new shocks and springs for my above car. I was going to go for the Bilstein B12 setup you have, but I don't really want it to be much lower (if at all). Any advice on either; 1) how much it'd lower it from it's current s-line height based on experience 2) any other...

    My B7 3.0tdi Quattro thread

    Hi all, I thought i'd create a thread for my latest car. I've been an Audi owner for the last 7 years, with a B6, and then 3 years ago I bought a 1.8TQS, also, as my toy car. Typically I prefer older cars, and I was never a fan of the B7 shape, although it's growing on me I must admit! The B6...

    1.8TQS Rear brakes sticking

    Hi. My right rear caliper is sticking and braking is getting horrendous. I'm considering purchasing an old set of rear calipers and getting them refurbed so that I can just swap them over when they are done rather than be without the car for a few days/ weeks. Looking on eBay I think there...

    Something fell off...again :)

    My exhaust Heat Shield (I assume). How important is it to get it back on ASAP? It looks worse for wear, and like i'll need a new one, the mounting holes have all disappeared. I only knew about it as I could hear a vibrating noise so stopped and looked underneath. I've ripped it out for now so I...

    Front strut washer part # request

    Hi everybody, I've looked on vagcat, but with no luck, so asking for help please! At the weekend I removed my standard shocks and lowering springs to replace it with OEM sport suspension (the wife was moaning it was too low). Anyway, we lost one of the big washers that fasten the front strut...

    Scuttle panel screws

    Hi all, I recently had to work my magic in the plenum chamber area as there was a bit of corrosion. That's all done now, and hopefully I've caught it early enough. Anyway, I had to remove the scuttle panel in order to get the battery out. All the plastic screws holding it in have previously...

    My 1.8 TQS kindof project thread.

    I thought I'd start a thread for my newly acquired a4. I've been a member for a good few years now on here with my 1.9tdi (b6) avant, but over the last year I've been growing fonder of the b5 platform. Here's my b6, it's now the family workhorse. It may even have to get raised as the wife...

    B5 1.8tqs test drive questions

    So today I went to test drive a 1.8tqs, I've not driven one before and since I'm considering buying one I thought it best to give one a go. First, it felt a little numb. I have a 1.9tdi b6, but the 1.8t felt slower. Maybe I wasn't giving it enough beans? Next was some knocking from the front...

    EGR valve hose connection

    I cleaned my turbo yesterday with the Mr muscle method, and also cleaned the EGR valve and intake manifold. All works fine, not really a huge difference noticed, if any but it was more preventative rather than anything else. However, I noticed a load of oil on the rear most part of the intake...

    New (to me) aero wipers

    So I have wanted aero wipers for ages, and it's one of the few mods the wife agrees with as the standard wipers were bobbins, even with new genuine Audi wiper blades they still sucked. So I saw that a user on here (Sam) was selling some so took the opportunity :) Heres a before and after pic...
