  1. Questions answered! You will also need a double DIN cage and to cut down your centre console to accomodate the new cage. I have done the same install in my old B6 I had so happy to assist as required.
  2. Bought it.!.

    Unless you get one with the bench rear seat with 3 seat belts.

    One on the bay of thieves here
  4. help with slugish golf

    HI Welcome to the forum! There is a chance the alternator (or battery) could be on its way out. As everything is electric it could be causing issues. I know that on some VAG cars symptons can be the brake light warning.
  5. battery not charging

    Sounds like your alternator to me, should be at least 14 volts when running. If battery quite new it will support running the car for a while after starting.
  6. If you mean the LED strip that runs across the top of the light down the side of the grill, these are xenon headlight units. In theory to legally install correctly you will need the headlight units complete with ballasts and bulbs, install headlight washers and auto levelling system! As a minimum you would need the headlight units, ballasts and bulbs and perhaps any loom adapters if required. Will not be cheap!

    Very difficult to comment without seeing the car but it could be possible that you have shorted the brake switch? Only reason I say this is that when my brake switch failed the car went into limp/safe mode and had the ECU fault (Glow plug light flashes). Worth a double check?
  8. Black Edition Sportback

    They do look good, came a year too late for me as already had got mine by then! As for chip would suggest going for a remap instead. Speak to shark_90 (Ben) if you do!
  9. i'm going to hell.

    I think that this is one of the lowest things that you can do to a mate. Just heard about something similar happening and I just cant stomach it.

    Who needs enemies when they have "friends" like you. Oh and lets comment about it on the internet about making a "mistake"....
  11. Retrofit Armrest Phone Prep

    You can get the required loom from kufatec.de but you will also need BT module as well. The major benefit to have the armrest prep is you can physically house the phone after buying the adapter to suit your phone (circa £100!). The loom is more expensive too. This means that if you install the antenna it should give slightly better reception and charge your phone. It may eventually give more features? To be honest I have installed the BlueTooth kit and simply charge the phone off a cigarette lighter lead! It works well enough for me and the extra costs to do the complete factory type install seem too much coupled with extra install work.
  12. RETRO FITTING DIS AND CRUISE ON A4 B6

    If the guy selling it is prepared to offer refunds if it does not work I dont see why not! It all depends on cost too, if no refund offered it could become a very false economy. I assume that you have all the vagcom etc as well?

    It should be fine to use a MFSW compatible ecu without a MFSW. If you can get a suitable used unit you should save a few quid as they are not cheap! Where abouts in Somerset are you as I am only in Wiltshire and have done this myself with Sharks prior help!
  14. S-Line value advise please......

    Glasses values it at around 11k trade in top condition. Best bet is check the bay of thieves to see what similar cars are actually selling for and base your valuation on that?
  15. S-Line value advise please......

    Have you been offered a price for chopping in against the new car?
