Finally went looking for the cause behind a vibration between 80-90mph. Changed the 2 back wheels hoping it was just a buckled alloy and thankfully it was! have her sitting on odd alloys for the moment until I get it sorted!
Finally got round to fitting the RS4 pedals from the group buy.

New pedals fitted, used a heat gun & some silicon spray to fit them (a few obscenities where muttered) ......

A nice little improvement over stock ..... A big thank you to Mike for organising these group buys.
I took the plunge and ordered some new shoes for Missy a few weeks ago. All the bits finally arrived last week so I was able to get them fitted over the weekend. My main concern was potential rubbing, but so far so good!
Before (2003 Avant 1.9 TDI Sport with 16 inch wheels):

Wheels: RS5 Replicas (19x8.5J ET32) on OEM Sport suspension
Tyres: Yokohama Advan Fleva V701 235/35/R19 91W XL
Awesome! So how are the OEM oes actually on? Are they stuck on..hence the use of heat gun?
A few obscenities? I heard through the grapvine it was loads!
Yeah, I think my fears were stoked by some of the 19 inch wheels in the B6 Audizine Wheel thread indicating varying degrees or rubbing without realising that the bulk of them were on significantly lowered suspension.You will definitiely not have any rub issues on stock suspension with your current set up.
I was previously on 20x9 with 265/30/20 so bigger in everyway and still no rubbing at all.

Ok a lot more than a few ..... think I went through the list at least twice.
The pedal rubbers have a lip around the rear that just sits over the pedal very tightly. I used the heat gun to make the rubber a bit more pliable, the brake & clutch were kinda easy to put on the throttle was a bitch due to it's curve & slight tapper.
Nothing yet.. but soon...
Any ideas? Anyone tried this??
Plan is to take down the left side and perhaps also the rooflines..
I've run a wire through the left hinge for a RVC..
Or else it could be the left roof rack sealing?
