    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Steep learning curve for me this weekend !! Bumper off to fit new grill what a pain, but becomes very easy when you’ve had it on and off as many times as I have. Firstly foolishly I never took any pics before I started to remind myself of the gap between bonnet and grille. Became obsessed that’s...

    Exhaust dpf dilemma

    Dpf is visible to tester it’s underneath would gut from top side, only reason I would use gutted dpf as opposed to straight pipe is accident/ insurance so as at least theirs a chance it looks legal. I would use a good dpf for mot so tester viewing wouldn’t be an issue. Understand dpf delete...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    It sounds like your even more frustrated than me !! Quite rightly so though. If I’m reading correctly you ordered skf shafts @£350 and they have despatched stark ones which are £200 with no email to ask if this is agreeable or refund of the difference in cost. I shall be writing a very stern...

    Rob I would be interested to hear what the card co say. I paid with PayPal. Have just had a quick browse through their t&c’s it states despatch within 4-5 working days if goods in stock which both ours were.

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Thinking I should cancel these now and ask for a refund. Don’t suppose you were given a reason why they were stuck in transit and a delivery date wasn’t possible.

    Rob GLS are a German delivery company very much like DPD here although there tracking system is not as good as DPD’s. When Autodoc finally !!

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Talking of springs and shocks below is a copy of an email I sent to bilstein uk technical yesterday and the reply I recd. Might not be of much interest as mines a cab and so not the same shocks as a saloon or avant but can’t see why they would be different though. Good morning I am hoping that...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Same for me. Ordered my springs and rear shocks from them on the 28th, in stock finally left on Friday after a considerable amount of emails. A good price is no use if you don’t get the bits. Will never use again customer services useless just read everything from a text book

    Alex Lots and lots of wd40 or other before, as the plastic coating bonds to the union. So need to tighten/undo a little at a time so your sure it’s free.

    Brake pipe renewal

    Any one ever change offside rear brake pipe on a quattro ? When I replaced flexi hoses with braided there was a part where the plastic coating had gone on the offside rear. I know it probably won’t go through mot and splicing in on the car with steel pies is a no no. Couldn’t have been a worse...

    Help !!! Rs4 grille part no plus confused

    Rob That’s an impressive list to say the least. I hear what your saying but it won’t change my mind. I was 30 when I drove my first Porsche, my old boss had a 911 turbo and I got to drive it occasionally. After that first drive always said I’m gonna have one these, so unless the rs4 avant...
