    Code out Stop/Start?

    Just wanted to see if this is possible. I hate it, wife hates it, and let's be fair 10k miles a year from a 1.4 saving the environment is not going to be one of its defining moments. All its gonna do is wreck the starter motor and battery. So, can it be coded out or better still just flip the...

    A1 Best Engine For DSG/S-Tronic + Reliabilty

    Looking at buying an A1, budget is around or just below the 10k mark, which means a 2012 car I think. Wife has just passed her test and auto only, hence the title. I obviously want the 150bhp 1.4 TFSI. I don't think I want diesel again, sound horrible and my 2.0 Golf GT TDi just died on me oil...

    R32 V6 Motor into Mk5 Tdi (Idea...)

    I have a 2l tdi mk5 Golf and want the R32 as I've dropped from 20k miles a year to about 10k. Yes, buying an R32 would be so much easier but my spec is great, and the only thing missing is a tuneful engine. I don't want a turbo 2l, been there done that and got the bill for a tfsi fail...

    Mk5 Golf GT TDI Say Nav and..

    Back in the land of VAG. It has Pioneer sat nav HU but no cd or sd card. I presume it needs one of those to work. The follow map work but no destinations apart from the previous owner. Before I shell out on a cd does anyone know what I need for it to work. Needs glow plugs, tyres and manifold...

    Connecting Android phone to b7 se model

    I've Googled the living daylights out of this and still can't quite figure it out. I have a SE b7 and it has phone buttons on the steering wheel and in the arm rest is a cradle for a phone made in 2005 presumably. Does this mean that it doesn't have bluetooth? My phone doesn't find any device...

    I brought ....

    A Audi. I brought. I brought a Audi. Looks and sounds stupid doesn't it. That's because it's wrong. I make typos on this stupid phone sometimes but it drives me nuts when I see so many people on here and other UK forums say "I brought a". No foreigners say brought and yet all of the racists...

    Judderman's A4 Tfsi Progress Thread

    Hi Thought I'd make a thread for my car. Having been on the A3 8L board for 2 years, I've switched to the B7 fraternity. Here it is: Bought in August 2014 for a princely sum...ie. about a grand less than others on the market were so had to snap it up. Sold my A3 for exactly what I paid for...

    Hi all, I've been on the A3 8L board for almost two years and am completely sold on the Audi brand, which is why I went for the B7 next. I was planning on getting a B5 S4/A6 All-Road just for the 2.7T engine, but I couldn't resist the pull of the slightly newer car - which is very unlike me as...

    Should I just break it?

    Having a bit of a dilemma with my 8l. I fix it, something else breaks and so on. Most of my posts have been problems with my car and having just spent a few hundred quid on it I don't know weather it's worth keeping it or breaking it and get more money? I'm not afraid of old cars, I've only...
