    Headliner

    Really good to hear this, I got someone to trim mine in Alcantara a year ago and they made a right pigs ear of it (the alcantara is coming off, it’s creased in places and they also broke my windscreen!!! Got my money back at least..) so I’ve got to replace the headliner and the pillars in the...

    Help Please Replacing lower control arms - torquing after driving up on a ramp

    Oh I'm literally driving on to them in my garage. I presume there is no issue doing this but wanted to be sure :) I mean actual ramps as well, e.g. these:

    Help Please Replacing lower control arms - torquing after driving up on a ramp

    I'm more wondering if it's ok to drive the car up ramps without having the arms torqued at the time. I can't see why not, but then again I'm not a mechanic! I think I will only use ramps on the front.

    Help Please Replacing lower control arms - torquing after driving up on a ramp

    TL;DR - can I replace the control arms, tighten (but not torque) the bushings, reattached the wheels, drop the car, drive it on a set of ramps, then torque them up whilst on the ramp? Hey all, I've got to do some lower control arms. Admittedly this is on a Q5 but I'm posting here as I know...

    High beam assist retrofit

    Mine is on early and it’s as slow as anything. Other drivers will flash me before it reacts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    High beam assist retrofit

    This. It’s crap. I have it and I keep meaning to research how to disable it. It’s slow and useless. Every other assist on the car is awesome but high beam assist is terrible! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Service whatever-point checklist

    Don’t suppose anyone has a PDF of all the things Audi check as part of their however-many point checklist when doing a major service? I think they may check the same things during an MOT and oil change service too, I think they call it a health check. Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help Please Eibach Sportlines issue

    The OP is talking of an imbalance between near side and off side though, not front and rear, they should be level surely without any tinkering? Funnily enough I changed my front control arms and I have an imbalance of about the same length, not sure why. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help Please Replace one or all control arms?

    Following up on this one (sorry I still need to do a write-up, 2 young kids and busy work are making this hard), I noticed a slight clunking recently in certain situations (seems to be when turning right on a roundabout but it’s a bit random). It’s not particularly alarming and I can’t see...

    Fitting coilovers to B8 with adaptive suspension?

    I have an awful memory so may be wrong here but I don’t think the ADS shocks were too bad a price. Ask Creweaudiparts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Head says warranty, heart says Revo!

    I’d possibly be up for it! I want do the DSG and sports diff anyhow. Not sure I could stay over as I’ve got young kids and would feel a bit bad on the wife! But if it was do-able in a day I’d be up for it. Alternatively if anyone in the Nottingham area wants to pair up to help each other out I...

    They don’t fit the B8 though do they? I haven’t seen that socket on the bottom of the car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Replace "Renew when replace" nuts and bolts or not?

    Cheers for this, very handy info :) is there an easy way to know which are stretch bolts? I bought new bolts for the subframe cross brace, half thinking that they won't be needed - might return them, £27 worth!

    Replace "Renew when replace" nuts and bolts or not?

    Hey all, quick question - when doing work yourself on your car do you replace the bolts that Audi state "Renew when replace"? I ask because I doubt an indy garage would do this - for example I removed the subframe cross brace thinking I needed to remove it, but I didn't so I bolted it back on...

    Help Please Replace one or all control arms?

    The link was the only one I haven't (yet) done. I'll do it sometime soon but I didn't have the time this time. It was the curvy guide link that went for me. Will do! I dindn't know you could use your reg, thanks for sharing anyway but yes I did use this for the ball joints. They were...

    Help Please Replace one or all control arms?

    So I have finally gotten round to doing the job! Took me long enough.. I’ve only driven it for about 20 miles thus far but all seems fine. The job itself went really rather smoothly, surprisingly. I’ll share a bit more about it when I have a few spare moments. I have all the pages from Erwin...

    Lag switching between drive and reverse

    Yes definitely sensible, and as long as it’s fairly normal I’m happy enough, I just hadn’t really noticed it before. This leads me on to something else, this may possibly be me noticing things that aren’t there, but I could swear that when the car is cold it is more sluggish in reverse than...

    Has anyone in the uk got a CR15 strut brace?

    I’ve got a sports diff. Hmm, I gotta day I think either I’m a bit crap at noticing the difference mods like this make, or they don’t make much [emoji23] if you did it without me knowing I doubt I’d get in the car and notice much, but because I (obviously!) know I did it I’m looking for the...
