  1. Been 3 years since last post but see its busy as ever, looking for any advice? My old 2005 A4 cab has now done 45K miles and needs another clutch (well more so dual mass fly wheel again). I had to have it changed at 18K miles before. Is this normal, maybe a quattro thing? Anyone else get through these like this?
  2. Has anyone tried these bulbs? 501 T10 W5W Canbus safe error free LED on eBay (end time 17-Nov-09 22:24:22 GMT)
  3. Prospective buyer - Q re TV & DAB

    I had the DAB tuner and to be honest it wasn't worth it, half the stations were nearly always greyed out and some stations sounded worse on DAB.
  4. Q7 Not Starting Correctly

    My old one occasionally took 10 seconds to fire up (3.0TDi) with a huge cloud of smoke out the exhaust
  5. Clutch problems, anyone else?

    By the way does anyone know how to change the car under avatar, somehow I've gained an S3.
  6. a4 cab

    The grills are the standard chrome/granite S4 cab ones, make sure you don't get saloon ones. You've missed the boat with the mirrors, gave some to Chav & Nordberg, only have my grey ones left now, sorry. You'll find them on ebay though no probs
  7. Glovebox Broken

    maybe glue it and tell him what you've done if you want a clear conscience. Things is it will be second hand to him and things like that often are broken. I would just try and glue it and see how that goes.

    [ QUOTE ] i like what u have done thats what i want 2 do, the grills the edge spoiler . how much have you spent on the grills s4 crome wing mirrors and edge spoiler. front valance ??? whats that . what s4 trim ??? mines a 1.8T do u think i should put an induction kit on or save the money on other mods ? [/ QUOTE ] Top grill was about £50 Lower grill about £20 Mirrors are OEM so about £250 but there are cheaper chrome/matt ones about £80 forgot I had 4 sets of mirror covers at one point The rear valance is charactere and cost £500 inc paint but not fitted. The front valance (the side bits) abt was about £400 painted and fitted By S4 trim I mean the grills and mirrors... Think you should save your money on an induction kit, many dispute any performance improvement. I personally would rather have the cosmetic changes, although my favourite mod is the Miltek. Maybe start by just changing the grills from vagparts, not too much money and they make the biggest difference to look at
  9. a4 cab

    Cheers Mac Hood's black, not a fan of other colours just my opinion though
  10. a4 cab

    I know what you mean, I don't want to add up what I've spent since delivery; 3 more sets of alloys, Miltek, S4-trim, alu-trim, front valance, rear valance, lowered.. But I like the fact mine looks a little different from the norm. Go on - you know you want to
  11. a4 cab

    Mine was about £400 painted and fitted by Awesome, never seen the front spoiler on ebay, only the rear which went cheap. Not many ABT stockists in the UK and overseas suppliers never returned my emails. I think it's worth it, well I guess I would

    Nearly died last week, filled her up and got 385 on the DIS That's the highest it's ever been, usually 280! MPG seems to be getting better now the miles are going up
  13. upgrade performance help!!

    Cheers BUB Are induction kits really noisy and a bit chavy? Would I look/sound a bit sad with one?

    Nice one SCM, counting down by the hour yet
  16. A4 1.8T Sport Cab for sale.

    [ QUOTE ] If you get a 3.0 cab, I'd recommend the quattro! I didn't have it and I think it was a mistake! [/ QUOTE ] oh no, the quattro debate I agree with UBM, just my opinion
  17. upgrade performance help!!

    K&N do a replacement filter and have an induction kit under development, not seen induction kits anywhere else for it. My Miltek sounds great but don't expect any noticeable performance increase. Chipping lucky to get an extra 10bhp, not worth it. Better spark plugs maybe. Think the cheapest solution is either nitrous or an electronic supercharger which will put 1psi into to intake and the engine management will do the rest. Or MTM turbo's £10K

    Finally took some new pics of car, back to old shape RS4's from the new RS4's and rear Caractere valance if you can even notice it. See if you think it's worth the £500 I paid. Booked in for lowering springs this Saturday . So these can be my before pics...

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] Wow, but I have never heard one before. Is it chalk and cheese?? Please explain!! [/ QUOTE ] At idle it's very hard to spot the difference, just a slightly deeper note. Normal driving it's got more of a roar but it's not really noticable in the car. If you really give it some stick then you can tell. It's not tiresome though and on the motorway with the radio on you’d never know. Outside it sounds great - just how I wanted it to - A nice muted roar with some turbo 'whoosh'. If you accelerate hard through the gears you get a muted 'pop' between changes. It's made the engine smoother sub 2500k (more torque) and helped with pick-up (less turbo lag). Midrange is stronger. A top mod. Get on the phone to Jim SLPiiX BUB [/ QUOTE ] Similar to my experience, very subtle until using some throttle. With the roof up it's not really noticeable but down I can hear it roar and it sounds deep - not Saxo stylee

    [ QUOTE ] Hof, what happened to the B7 RS4 reps? TTRS wheels look ace, just curious. [/ QUOTE ] Buckled one of the front ones so they are stacked up with the Kraft and Nuvolari's in my parents garage (can't swing a cat in my garage). I decided the old RS4's just look better hence...
