    Avant OEM roof bars... Does yours have a gap where the feet meet the bar?

    I have just fitted a pair of OEM Audi roof bars to my avant. I'm happy with them (until I can afford some nicer Thule wingbar edge) but I do have a concern... I needed to adjust the feet as they were too narrow and wanted to center the bars. I didn't notice before hand but since then the feet...

    A4 B8 display info question...

    Hi folks, I have an annoyance that I've not spotted on other B8 cars: my display tells me the source as well as what the source is playing. It's really frustrating! How do I get rid of the "Radio" part? Is it a VAGCOM thing? I can't find any settings that allow me to hide the source info...

    Question about component protection side effects

    Some good news today, My CQ BCM2 module has arrived to replace my low spec one and allow me to code all the channels for the LED rear lights. Obviously it will have a hissy fit when I fit it and will throw up component protection but I know very little about CP apart from that it has to be...

    Hello folks, I appear to have a sticky caliper and will likely need to replace it. I have since found that I have the smaller 314mm brakes on my car and have seen that there are larger brakes available. Seeing as I will be replacing one caliper anyway, is it worth (financially or stopping...
