  1. Rust on Mk5 Golf

    I think an awful lot depends on the dealers attitude.In the current economic climate you would think they would welcome some warranty £. When my wife had her mk5 several years ago the dealer we went to would check the rear and badge area ,saying it was a known problem area ,thankfully ours was ok.As far as wax sealer goes check out how some of the mk2 s and last mk1 s were sealed up . I have bilthammer wax sealer on my mk1 and mk2 , makes a difference . My Mk1 had additional sealer from new back in 1982 i had it repainted last year and the rust spots round it were minimal for a 29 year old girl.

  4. dualmass f/wheel probs on A4 b4 tdis

    I spoke to a few mates today ,after a bit of discussion and research , they came to the conclusion that dual mass flywheels are a disaster , and it doesnt matter what way you drive !
  5. Random knocking

    not sure if its the same thing but earlier this year my wifes 09 cooper had a rattle , we couldnt pinpoint it other than that it occurred on rough road when going reasonably slowly , after a few days dealer discovered it was a worn gearbox mount ! (kindly fixed under warranty)
  6. Hi Guys just raising the issue here to see if anyone else has had similar problems on their B8 not 4 as in the title . My car developed a judder on take off which deteriorated with time, to such an extent a new fly wheel was fitted under warranty this year in march @23000 miles. Things went ok for a while until recently when i noticed the same thing occuring albeit to a lesser extent , anyway the car was fitted with anew flywheel clutch and release bearing this week still within warranty, 9000 miles since the last one . Anyone had the same problem ?
  7. Winter wheels and tyres?

    Hi nelson would those have the same offset pcd etc for b8 A4?
  8. audi interior cock up

    A friend had a similar problem last year with her new a3 convertible , but after a little assertiveness they absorbed the price difference and the original deal was honoured, dont let them muck you about.
  9. Winter wheels and tyres?

    Is it possible to have a steel wheel for the B8 ?ie to fit winter tyres .
  10. booster seat versus alcantara

    thanks guys for the link,checked it out, amazon's post and packing costs to ni were crazy so got it from my wendy house on ebay , £2 as opposed to £15 p+p.
  11. Hi guys i have just changed my b7 to a b8 sline with leather and alcantara , i would like to know what you guys with kids do to protect the upholestry from the booster seats needed by the young in the back . are there special mats available ?
  12. Did you check if they are down on the wear blocks yet ? Sometimes the dealers can try it on hoping you'll say stick a pair on!of course its your well being and safety they are thinking about .- I saw continentals slick by 9000 miles, couldnt believe it
  13. B7vB8 avant

    Hi guys had my first look at the boot in the b8 avant , does anybody know if it is any bigger , it looks shallower now that the battery is in there , anyone any experience. We have a gordon setter that takes up up a bit of space in the boot!

    there should be a little precut rectangular area it pushes into , at the rear of the armrest underneath the hinged area and it is lit when lights are on .
