    The spacers thread

    This always seems to be a hot topic on a lot of forums so I thought I'd share my recent experience for the benefit of anyone else thinking about this and perhaps over time others will also add their specs for reference. Anyway, I've added 15mm rear and 10mm spacers to the front. This gives me...

    Wheel swap...

    Spent a few hours swapping out the wheels on the new B8 today and gave it a bit of a clean. Quite happy with it now but will be adding spacers next month to improve the fitment. Its currently ET45 all round and I think ET33 front and ET30 rear should get it sitting better. anyway, here's the...

    From B7 to B8

    My wife and I traded our B7 in yesterday for a nice new(er) B8 and I've grabbed some pics to share... the b7 after its last wash and just before I put the original wheels back on (wheels have been saved and will be refurbished before hopefully going on the B8). Last shot of the B7 as we left...

    Heater controls display a '3' on start up

    Hi guys, had a quick search and can't find an answer. We looked at a nice B8 yesterday to replace our B7 but one thing I noticed was the heater controls displayed a '3' on the drivers side heater controls on start up. Is this a fault code? And, if so any ideas what it could mean? going back...

    How many speakers with factory Bose?

    Sorry guys, probably a stupid question but I was wondering how many speakers I have in my Avant? I'm guessing 9 but was wondering today if there's one in the center of the dash under what looks like a speaker grill?

    The A4 paint colour thread

    I'm hoping to be ordering a new Avant in the next few months and am faced with the decision of colour... my daily is an alpine white BMW and I kind of like the idea of going with Ibis white on the Avant (especially as its a no cost option). However our current Avant is Garnet Red which I love...

    Has anyone had any experience of the Seat Exeo

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section but this is kind of B7 related! I need a larger company car and have been pricing up the Audi and BMW estate options which unfortunately both come to approx 33K for what I'd want... My budget is around the 27K mark and the best solution I can find is...

    Uh..oh... Flashing glow plug light and limp mode :(

    The above happened on the way into Newquay after a 5 hour journey and came back immediately again after a 15 minute stop just before we got here... not driven it since so can't comment if it's still happening but fearing the worst in the morning. It has happened a couple of times in the past...

    Which brake down assistance company?

    Right, well I'm in the position of needing to sort out some recovery cover for the a4 avant before we leave for Cornwall next Saturday. So the question is who's best and what level of cover should I be thinking about? To give you a bit of general info our a4 is on 130k miles but is only on a...

    tdi 170ps - Replacing the DPF

    Well I had all four injectors replaced by Audi yesterday FOC which was the good news, the bad news however, was when they advised me that the DPF needs to be replaced and due to a faulty sensor it has coked up far more than its meant to and is currently in a dangerous state. Further to this I...

    Spacers and advice needed for my Avant...

    Hi there, I have recently installed a set of 19'' BBS LM reps ET45 and now cant help thinking that the wheels need spacing out a little bit! The problem is that I don't know how far out they should go... I was tempted to go with 5mm fronts and 10mm rears but have doubt in my mind that maybe I...

    S Line Avant - Now with 19'' LM reps

    Well after picking the new wheels up a few weeks ago and waiting another week for the spigot rings I have finally managed to mount our new rims today! Really pleased with it now but will be happier still once I fit the B5 spring plates on the front which should help reduce the arch gap...

    B7 Avant Brakes - not great!?!

    Hi there, We've had our S Line Avant for a couple of weeks now and everytime I get in and drive it I can't help but notice that the brakes just don't feel as sharp as my Bm'er or my LCR which I owned before it, come to think about it our previous A2 was better as well! It will stop but you...

    Parrot Kit's - Anyone in the Surrey area able to help with fitting?

    Hi there, Our Avant came with a Bury phone kit but after a bit of messing around I have have discovered that the mute kit was causing the Bose amp to not function. Therefore, I am now considering removing it all together and replacing with a Parrot ck3100. I've been quoted £335 for the kit...

    B7 A4 Avant Bose Sub not working

    Hi there! I collected my '56 plate A4 Avant on Wednesday and I was initially dissapointed with the audio and lack of bass... On closer inspection it would seem that the Bose sub in the boot is not working at all, all other speakers are fine. I have used the search but haven't been able to...
