    Short shift AGU Engine

    Has anybody used this product.. Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181543584426 Does it make much difference and does it change all directional throw or just front to back? Cheers

    Brake People!

    I was replacing my abs sensor today as the ring came loose and mangled it. Whilst doing this I thought I'd take a closer look at my brakes to find out why they're squealing so much when cold. I found this, a nice thin score round the disc (could be from iron filings from said mashed sensor?)...

    3" downpie to OEM Cat?

    I'm heading to Stage 2 the car and wondering if it is possible or worth changing the 1.8t AGU downpipe for a 3" but marrying it with an OEM cat, then back to a 3" cat-back exhaust? Or, is it better to stage 2 the rest but leave the downpipe/cat or I'm I thinking stupid here, or not bother at...

    Wonky Steering Wheel

    Ok, I got my top mounts and NSF inner tie rod changed but the garage didnt have the equipment to fit round my wheels (lowered) to do the tracking, so I took it down ATS for laser alignment. I drove it away and noticed that the steering wheel was ****** so took it back in and they double...

    A3 312mm Brake upgrade

    Been looking into this and from memory you just need calliper carriers and 312 discs but this lead me to wonder how it improves braking. Am I being really stupid in saying if you're using the same pads, you're biting on the same amount of disc so shouldn't increase stopping power? Or is it to...

    FMIC - Oil in hoses?

    Finished up fitting my wellycooler today but when taking off the old oem cooler, I found some oil in, notably the cold side pipe into the throttle body. TB was cleaned about a year ago and wasn't very dirty but I was wondering if this was a problem and if so, what? Cheers

    Cambelt replacement

    I phoned my local garage today to book a cambelt and water pump replacement to be quoted £440, using genuine parts, worst case scenario as there were 3 pumps to choose from (£70 pump). This is more than I was anticipating as I've read people have it done in the region of 300-350. I've also seen...

    Anti Roll Bars for an A3!

    Searched and searched but all I can see is S3 topics.. My car is running coilovers on a 20mm drop and I'm getting some noises, like a pulsating grind more dominant in corners. Plus I see a bit of rubbing on the arb. I've been advised to change the ARB anyway and I'm hoping this issue is...

    Hey, first post so go easy haha I was driving home late last night and heard a metallic sound hitting tarmac, now I wasn't sure if it was from my car or whether it was already in the road and i brushed it but it looked like a metal heatshield in the road - I turned around to have a look. This...
