    Coming back to Audi MY2013/2014

    Morning guys, Just placed an order for a 3.0tdi BE saloon in Daytona, small set of options which include Tech pack, 20" segment alloys, lighting pack and heated front seats. I note on my order form that it states Audi A6 saloon special editions (2013). Is there a spec change coming for MY2014...

    Hire Van engine failure

    Our company uses corporate insurance which at this point looks like it will not cover us. We are doing more digging on this though.

    Hire Van engine failure

    Guys, Some advice for a work friend please? Our company hired a van from a well know local supplier, to visit site. On the return journey (a total journey distance of 233 miles) the oil light came on. My friend (and it is my friend, not me) pulled over and checked the oil level. There was...

    Water pump? HELP

    The S4 and 3.0TDi pre 2010ish were supplied with plastic water pump housings and are a known weak point. I should know as my pump failed and dumped all the water over the floor. My car was fixed under warranty and i dont think a recall was ever made. The replacement part and newer cars have a...

    What a mess

    Its not judgemental its just an opinion. I love looking at some of the recoveries that go on on detailing world. Some of the lambo's and Ferrari's that require heavy TLC just backs up my initial point. Granted thats a slightly different level but the point stands ;) That cars probably a demo...

    What a mess

    Thats usually the way though isnt it. If you can afford to but it, then its just an object not a prized possession like it would be to normal people.

    Engine temperature and warm up time

    Doug might have been joking, i wasnt though. Get a piece of card and slide it infront of the radiator. The card will stop the air flow through the radiator and regardless of if the stat is stuck open you will see a temperatue rise. If you get to the normal 90, pull it out again and if it...

    S4 running in

    I've never brought into the bo**ox of nail from when its new to make it a quick engine, what a load of ****. IIRC there is something in the manual about keeping it below a certain rpm for a certain milage. Regardless whatever you do now (within limits) isnt going to benefit you, unless you...

    Carbon 3D Lettering Registration

    Do you chav your car up for other peoples pleasure, or your own? If you like them - regardless of the chav level - then put them on your next car for your own pleasure, it matter not what other think!

    Letting the beast go....

    For me it all came down to price. The options i missed would have been the straw that broke the camels back. Fantastic car though, its been a very enjoyable ownership experience. She will be missed.....

    Brake calliper painting
