    Help needed with someone who has just the Auto Dim Rear Mirror in Silver/Light Grey Platinum.

    Fingers crossed one of you can help me as I need a couple of part numbers off both the cable covers on the Auto Dim Mirror without Rain Sensor. Basically I'm doing a retrofit of the above to my A4 B7 Avant and this was the easiest route for the CH/LH as it was simpler to attach it to the...

    Gutted 2.0Tdi 170 back boxes......

    Well a quick update after I gutted the back boxes on the Avant. As you can see I went from this restrictive baffle setup... To a straight through piece of 2.5" perforated Stainless tube (Sorry I didn't take any pics after the one above) that I wrapped in a layer of stainless steel wire wool...

    Rear Gearbox Mounts.....

    Long story short.....but since replacing the front snub mount for a Powerflex one the car idles brilliantly with no vibrations carried over to the chassis or cabin. But now it seems that my rear gearbox mount is suffering with old age and needs replacing as I can feel the play in it under hard...

    Boost problems......170 BRD

    Basically the car is flat until roughly 3000rpm and a ton of soot behind me.....then she takes off like a banshee. I've tried the original map and exactly the same. I've physically driven the car with the MAF disconnected and it's exactly the same but I didn't push it to spool up with...

    Oil type with EGR & DPF delete......

    Basically I appear to have had a slight brain fart and it's now dawned on me that in theory, I should now not be stuck to the VW 504 00 & 507 00 5W-30 specified oil as I no longer need the lower SAPS as I no longer have a DPF. So I am right in thinking that I can now use an oil that no longer...

    I don't think this is advisable in any way or form.....but it does seem to clean it out reasonably well.

    Well I don't need to look for any winter wheels now.......

    Was just coming up to a set of lights when the person in the right lane decided to swerve over into my lane and I reacted by swerving away from him.....when I felt the R/N/S lift up a little, no noise so I thought the tyre had just mounted the kerb as it was near a lowered area for wheelchairs...

    Hydraulic tappets....

    I presume the cam followers are the same for all the 16v 2.0 litre variants whether petrol or diesel. All I really want to know is the procedure to change them? Does the head have to come or can it stay in place and just remove the cams? I have one that is really noisy and it's beginning to...

    Clear Indicator Lenses

    As these are no longer available from the guy in the states and the only way to get them now is to buy a set of headlights and swap them over. So I was wondering how many people would be interested if I could find someone to make them. I can't see them being that expensive....so if you're...

    I need a DEAD O/S Bi-Xenon Headlight.....

    As the title really....I purchased an OEM set of Bi-Xenons for not a bad price but I need a dead/destroyed O/S Bi-Xenon headlight for the wiring out of it as the wiring in one of them has become brittle.

    Does the 2.0 Tdi Brd 170 have a Diverter Valve?

    As the title really.... I've not had a chance to get under the car to look at anything yet....but since having it mapped I have developed a lovely air leak. I've used VCDS to check requested and actual boost (Both Std & Modified Maps) and they are both well within the limits of being a few...

    2.0Tdi 170 Turbo to Intercooler pipe.

    Does anybody know the internal diameter of the pipe where it joins in the centre as I know my local VAG place sells replacement seals for them but are a little pricey......so if I can find out what the internal diameter of the pipe is I could just purchase a steel/aluminium joining pipe for a...
