    Cambelt replacement A4 2.0T Q

    I was wondering anybody could suggest a good independent Audi specialist in the Bicester / Oxford area please. The cambelt is due for replacement next month on my A4 and as I don't trust myself to do it on account that I'm rubbish at things like this I'm looking to get it done without paying...

    E-Pro Solutions...Who are they?

    I've had a couple of similar calls in the past along the lines of "We've noticed that your windows system is running slowly .........." to which I reply "Could be a bit difficult as we're a Macintosh only household" When they continue to rattle on I've either just hung up or asked them if they...

    Which parking sensors to fit?

    Could try Dolphin parking sensors, they do front and rear kits that you can fit yourself or have them fitted for you. I think that they have been tested by AutoExpress and won one of their group tests.

    RNS-E SAT NAV DISC

    Can I ask if you've cleaned the disc recently? It's just that the disc prior to the one I have now was working fine, went for a long drive one day, stopped for a cuppa and it wasn't working when I started driving again. The problem was a thin film of dust on the disc, cleaned the disc and it...
