    Mine work fine and do a better job that the 3 jet ones , its just the fan is to wide and catches the trailing edge of the bonnet. silly problem, maybe cured with a change of screen wash brand. dont know whats in the halfords stuff but it sets like a sticky treacle...

    My mechanic told me to not use the Halfords stuff unless I water it down as it leaves a horrible residue which then blocks the nozzles on the sprayers.

    Spot on sawyer, for some reason the halfords stuff is water soluble in the bottle but use it neat and its sets hard and doesnt wash off with water ?. I had to use engine cleaner to get it off. I will water it down in the washer bottle as soon as there is space and i will not use it again..

    Booked in for a Haldex service Friday up at CM Tuning as I stupidly went on milage instead of years and it hasn't been done since 2014.. ( it may have been throwing a Haldex pump code and causing Haldex not to engage)

    If it’s throwing the pump code it’s probably gunged up and will most likely need changing unless it gets cleaned out, they won’t normally do that as part of a service, also make sure they change the filter as Audi garages don’t change that either

    Please enlighten me on DSG Farts, I am new to the DSG - S-Tronic world.

    Does it have to be a decat and petrol to get the farts?

    Had a new clutch and flywheel other day as the old one was rattling when switching the car off and had done 130k on the original. New one is doing the same and it’s driving my head in now. Just want it to be quiet when turning off. .

    Had a slight misfire problem on Cylinder #2 and after a good few days fault finding we eventually found the culprit and had to get him replaced .
    Now I guess not a thing you want with your car but after a 100.000 miles on the clock I guess I am not as bothered as much as I would have been if it had been only 30k / 50k as I have heard others say,
    Plus at least I know there is no leaks anywhere and everything else from top to fault is working great and I will be happy if I get another 100,000 miles before another one goes .

    Nope stock dsg will do it on hard accel. Causal diving maybe but more quite ways to make it louder but no obnoxious is a mid silencer delete on the exhaust and aswell as an intake as it made mine louder then it was with stock intake system.
    Decat would make even more louder plus ull get more burble and pops etc from the exahaut note

    Retrofitted the OEM Bluetooth phone module to work with my Symphony 2+. Much easier than I thought it was going to be, took about 2 hours from start to finish. Thanks to @s8craig and vag_retrofits for the help and the advice. £89 from eBay with a new mic and a plug and play wiring harness.

    Installed Xtrons headunit yesterday - great unit to be fair for price I got it. I'm thinking about installing the external mic and dash cam next but not sure where to run wires from the back out of the unit - are there any gaps behind the head unit to run the cables from?

    Fitted my Dension Gateway 100, this is the 3rd car it’s been in. It has served me well and beats the hell out of the OEM Audi iPod attempt.

    I got a diesel DSG, and I guess when you say farts you refer to the pops you get from petrol engines.

    Hi everyone,

    I've been coming and going to the mechanic two weeks now as my ride went in for a set of rubber as they were shot. Four new tyres and an alignment later gave me a car that did go to the left if I let the steering wheel unattended; went to another mechanic whom told me last tracking was out of parameters, and car still doesn't want to go as it should, even though mechanic says it's on parameters.

    Also had some lighting issues still waiting to be adressed (xenon lights are pain in the ***)

    I'm willing to paint the grill satin black as I'll need to take apart the bumper for the bulb swap.

    Nice rides I'm seeing here!! keep the good work pals

    Lovely mod is that ashtray delete, makes the lower center console more usable. Would you mind sharing the pn for this mod? I take it the pn you made a photo is for the light.

    nice result btw!!

    Mine does the same thing since I put on new tires 2 summers ago. Two different alignment later it still does it, mostly noticeable on roads with a lot of camber. I've been told it could be tire conicity. My mechanic haven't found anything wrong suspension wise do I believe it could simply that. Haven't bothered to fight for tire replacement...
