    Will this be plug and play from the B7?

    Will the below radio from the B7 be a plug and play upgrade on my standard single din concert radio? I am aware of the double din cage/heater controls, but other than that will it work once plugged in? I seem to remember seeing someone fitting a double din from a B7 and having to solder two...

    Auto gearboxes

    Where there two different kinds of auto box fitted to these? I've noticed when looking for a manual that some of the later auto models come with gear change buttons on the steering wheel. Are these fitted with a better revised box, or were the change buttons just an optional extra? I really...

    Lower arm bush sizes

    I want to change the bushes in the below picture, but this company don't do them for the B6. Are B5 and B6 lower arm bushes the same size? I've used this company's bushes before so I know their quality is fine, and the powerflex equivalents are twice the price.

    Boost Gauge

    Is there a diesel boost gauge out there to match our white dash to buy from the UK? I've been on Newsouth's site and they sell one, but it would be $86 (£65?) + shipping and inport tax, and I can't find a UK seller for it. Awesome only sell their petrol version, which I don't see the point in...

    Unphased RR Day @ ADE Tuning

    A Northwest forum I'm on is having another RR day, but all are welcome. We had one in summer and there were some really interesting cars there putting out some big figures, including an A3 with circa 300bhp. Here is a copy and paste of the original post if you just want to turn up and watch...

    Fitting S4 Headlights

    Am I correct in thinking all that is needed to fit S4 headlights is one of THESE adapters, and to change the coding in VCDS? I know you need auto levelling and washers for the MOT, but I'm just asking about getting them in and working. Jim

    B6 Front Wings

    Are they all the same, or are cabriolet ones different? I need to replace my drivers side wing as someone did a hit and run on me at Christmas. I plan on buying a second hand one, then getting it painted, so it would be handy to know. cheers Jim

    This is a smaller north west based forum that I'm a member of. It isn't Audi based, but all VAG and German cars so may not be to everyone's taste. From all of the forums I'm on this is they only one in the NW that has a meet every month, so I thought I would put it up here for the meet starved...

    Standard short shifter?

    Just wondering if there is such a thing for these? For example on my bora I had the front to back selector arm from a six speed Mk1 TT gearbox to reduce the throw as the pin was in a different place. Is there a car for this platform that I can use the parts from?

    Jim's Black B6 Avant

    I bought this back at the end of August after deciding it was time for a bigger car than my Bora with a growing family. Some of the posts might not make perfect sense, but that's due to me copying and pasting from my build thread on one of the other forums I'm on, so apologies for that...
