    Cheers guys for your input. I'll look into then. Cheers, Dan
  2. C&J Auto Services - Thirsk

    I've had a look on there Mook, cheers. They have a dealer in York, JJBMOTORS. Would Shark send them the map to install? Wouldn't that mean it's a generic map rather than custom? Cheers, Dan
  3. C&J Auto Services - Thirsk

    Hi Guys, Just blowing the cobwebs off, It's been a while since I was last on here. I was just wondering if anyone has ever had any dealings with the above tuner/garage? I'm back in an Audi. A B6 A4 2.5TDi Quattro. I'm looking to have a remap done on it. I have spoken to the garage but they have no RR and say that when they tune Rally Cars they don't use RR anyway? They quoted me 208-210 hp increase and 370nm to 415nm increase. But with no RR how can it be proven? The guy seemed genuine and pleasant to chat to. Or is there any other tuner who can remap the car close to York as possible? I'll be having the pre-cat and cats gutted and looking at improving the air intake....so looking at basically a stage 2 remap. Cheers, Dan
  4. Whats it worth?

    I was meant to be getting it eventually, but my father's circumstances have changed somewhat, hence the decision to sell the 8 and get an S4. It is a 'normal' S8, 18" alloys, standard S8 brakes etc etc. I don't want him to sell it as its such a beautiful motor. It's all in the air at the moment so nothing set in stone...but watch this space! Either someone else will own or I WILL!!!!
  5. Whats it worth?

    Hi guys, My old man is thinking of selling his S8 and getting a S4 4.2 V8. But what is it realistically worth? Burgundy, W reg 2000, full electric/heated front and rear grey leather, suede headlining upgrade, bose with sat nav/tv. Basically doesnt solar roof or a fridge! Full Audi service history and the best bit is LESS then 25K miles!!! he is 2nd owner after buying from local millionaire very early this year. What price you think he should advertise this at? It is completely standard and unadulterated and well looked after. Cheers, Dan
  6. Has to go...

    [ QUOTE ] Sorry both your Audis have gone. Hopefully you have plans! Ian [/ QUOTE ] Firstly, Happy Birthday! Make the most of it! Secondly, yeah my plans are to accost my Dad's S8 as soon as he comes to sell it. Within the next 6months hopefully, but failing that, I'll be looking at another S4 B5 or A4 1.8T B6. Got a vectra and an alfa at the moment. Both drive nothing like an Audi! The Alfa going in a week or so, so that leaves the Veccy until i gat behind the wheel of an Audi again. Dan
  7. Has to go...

  11. Todays interesting find.... Pre wiring...

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] My car is the sport model. 97. Has full front recaros but jus airbagged rear seats. Think i remember seeing some surplus connections from when i fitted the blind mechanism i got from you. Its beige colour. There r a couple of other bits n bobs i would like from you. So maybe another trip over one day if thats ok? Do you have a full electric heated back seat in beige for sale? Dan [/ QUOTE ] I only have 3 sets of cream rears in at the moment: Sports with airbags, without heat or electric Non Sport, with heat and full electric pack but no airbags Sports with heating and airbags The problem is that the sports with heating are from the 2001 S8 I'm breaking, so dont want to sell the rears seperate unless the fronts go solo, plus they are facelift and wont quite slide straight in. Annoyingly it is possible to transfer the cream sports skin from your seats onto electrically adjustable rear seats to give you lumbar adjust etc in the back, but the heating element is firmly stitched into the leather itself, so not transferrable. Lack of airbags in the donor seats can cause a problem, but I've always had a theory that the airbag module can be recoded to tell it that it no longer has those airbags, and thus it wont show a warning light... You should have 5 surplus connectors under there - 2 for seat heating upper squab left and right, 2 for seat heating lower squab left and right + 1 for power supply for electric seat adjust and headrest drop down function... Anyway, bottom line is that I dont have an easy exact match just at the moment, but I'm sure I will have.. Re the other bits, no probs, but the cars are all up near Northallerton now, so possibly a little but closer to you.. [/ QUOTE ] Northallerton is very near where my dad and family are from. I know the area well. Definatly keep me informed with regards to sport rear seats with airbags. I'd like to keep them. You just never know what will happen on the roads! As for the other parts, i'll email you with a list and if you could send me a quote in return i'd appreciate it. Just found a pub, a british one at that, in Spain and i've managed to GUESS the pass key for the wireless internet! So free internet on my Nokia for remainder of my holiday! Dan

Dan [/ QUOTE ] You keeping her then Dan ?.... Cant recall (seen a lot of 8's) - Do you have sport seats or not in that one... ?
