    Headliner swap out!

    I think the idea is you use several pieces of strap ideally or clothesline if you’re careful, make a few wraps to very slightly bend it. I haven’t done it but I will do at some point so if you do it first I’d be interested to hear about it! I’ve spoken to 2 or 3 car interior folk who seemed...

    Headliner swap out!

    Sorry I didn't see the reply, you can get them out through the boot if you are careful, so I am informed.

    Speed cameras - now noise cameras !

    Then they’d get fined in the same way though, whether it’s factory or not they’re still breaking the rules right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    End of performance cars?

    I thought that, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it became a check on the MOT to ensure you hadn’t done so, and then you get a very slapped wrist if you had... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SuperSport Seats worth hunting for?

    The headrests are fixed and good job you’re broad - I’m not and I slide around in them because the bolsters don’t fit me well! I’ve no experience of the standard seats to compare though, sorry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Service missing from Audi's digital service record

    I am considering that with regard to something with my Wife’s Q5 but I’m not expecting it to bear any fruit with Audi as they just seem to not care, it’s very odd in this world of customer service that they simply hand their brand reputation over to their franchisees. Sent from my iPhone...

    Service missing from Audi's digital service record

    The whole system is a joke if you ask me. They get rid of service books and replace it with something which is totally useless! I also have loads missing from it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Well I've bought it, I did quite a bit of umming and ahhing - when you can get a decent jack + jackstands for probably about £200, and Rennstands + jack for about £620, going up to £1200 territory is a big old leap, but I do detailing, plus I'd like to do my own servicing and all that so I can't...

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Heh, last time I did a quickbuy (the Rennstand jack stands) I got sod all response! I may skip it! I had heard on another forum that the group buy discount wasn't good, I'd also heard they discount at goodwood (better than they do via a group buy).

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Yeh kills it for me I think. Also my main place to work on things would be my own house which has a tarmac drive - if I lifted my wife’s Q5 with the scissor that’s a lot of weight on a somewhat small contact area so I’d be worried about denting the tarmac on a hot day, whereas the quick jack...

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Ah just rang up Automotech and their scissor lifts are about 200kg for the 5500 and 300kg for the 7630 which makes them very stationary I guess! I reckon that puts them out the running for me - with the quickjack I could put it in my car to go to my parents who have a much better driveway for...

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Ah is that the Automotech AS-7630? https://www.automotechservices.co.uk/products/as-7630-mobile-scissor-lift/ They’re actually cheaper than the QuickJack and they do look absolutely fantastic for height. Also it can lift nearly 6000lbs as opposed to the QuickJacks 5000. Also they seem more...

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Interesting idea, reckon anyone would actually pay to rent it? Never even considered it

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Yeh they’re very averse to discounts it seems! I suppose you could put that another way and say the resale value would be fairly good I expect. I have managed to get an open box return at a slight discount (I do mean slight!) so I’m tempted. I estimate I’d use it maybe 5 or 6 times a year: -...

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    Yeh would have helped if I linked to the product! https://www.quickjacklift.co.uk Basically a sort of hybrid between a lift and a jack and jack stand combo - raises to about 21” very quickly and is rock solid, I’m quite interested in the safety aspect of it really. Sent from my iPhone using...

    Is buying a QuickJack mad?

    They cost a lot, is it mad to buy a pair? :) I don't really know why I'm asking this to be honest, probably just because they cost a lot so I'm sense-checking myself! I'm considering doing my own servicing and maintenance (for the things I can do) on my S4 and I'm a bit a "do it the right way"...

    Solid Tyres

    Interesting topic :) I hadn't really considered solid tyres even for push bikes - owning a road bike this is interesting to me as flat tyres and annoying and also the fact that road bike tyres lose pressure over the weeks I don't use them (because I'm a bit lazy). But, no idea why we don't use...
