Hi all

What a neat little forum, been using forums for years but always of the jap variety.

I am new here, trying out German cars as my mates have always had them whilst I have been a Honda man mainly. I have just bought an Audi A4 1.8T Quattro Sport MY2000 with 55K miles. A minter by the looks of things and it would also seem I was very lucky in finding this car and paying what I paid for it, I must say I am enjoying it, the four wheel drive is a new experiance for me, driven a scooby before but was a friends and was taking it easy. I am enjoying it anyway, especially compared to my last car, Nissan 200SX, that car was a nightmare and the handling was very poor. Before that I had 5 Civics in a row, kind of regret selling the last one but never mind, the kit level in the A4 makes up for it!

Anyway, maybe you guys could help me with a few things, bearing in mind I am a bit anal about cheap parts and never buy off ebay...

I would very much like an M3 style boot spoiler and a plain slatted front grill which still has the chrome but no rings just slats, any ideas?

Does anyone know where I might find pics of an A4 on Porsche wheels? You know the typical ones that most people put on VAG cars? Not well up on the Porsche front I am afraid.

I live in Stockport, my car is due a cambelt and other than Awesome does anyone know of a VAG specialist? I hear there is one in Stockport town centre but not sure where?

How much would I expect to pay for a cambelt service?

Lastly, my friend has a Carbonio on his Leon Cupra 20VT, sounds like Darth Vadar with a cold, I know they are pretty much all the same engine block but they are apparently different from there on in, would I expect the same noises? The Carbonio system looks different to my mates.

Any here had an APR stage 1 remap on the same car? Any issues?

Thanks guys

Can anyone help with the grill and spoiler please? I want to get the car into the body shop for a tidy up and wheel refurb



All hail the mighty quattro!

Fit an RS4 front grill, still has the four rings but is a nice subtle mod that changes the appearence of the front
