Bit of a small update, some will have seen my other thread where my car has been stalling instantly once I start it from cold. Hoping a new coolant temp sensor will fix this. (part no. 059 919 501A)
Also ordered some new rear arb bushes as my links did not cure my knocking back suspension when running over the cobbled streets in Edinburgh. Bit of a pain to have changed the old links out and binned them as they were probably still decent but oh well.
Just arrived home with my 106 as well. Flew to Cardiff then trained through to Swansea yesterday and drove up to Chester to stay with some friends over night. Drove the rest of the way later this afternoon/evening. Car seem alright but there is a knock from the front and the steering feels a bit vague just off centre so I am going to have a look at the cv joints, ball joints and the steering rack. The clips which hold the skirt on at the front arch also look like they could do with being replaced.
I will change the belts, filters, liquids and plugs as soon as I get time. Parts are pretty cheap compared to the A4 so hopefully servicing and fixing the knocking will not be too costly. Its had one owner from new, is totally standard and has done 81k miles.
