  1. My car (52 plate) goes in for a new clutch on Friday, and there are a few things I was looking at doing, but I'm not entirely sure how possible / likely these are... Firstly cruise control. If I don't get this fitted, I'm either going to get myself banned or killed cos my right foot is getting stupidly heavy! I understand that this is an easy retrofit (new indicator stalk, tweak to the ECU). I understand it should cost a max of £100 + fitting. My garage wasn't 100% convinced that it was as easy or straight-forward as this! Is it? Secondly, I'd asked the garage about a remap. They'd suggested I'd be wasting my money and should try something different - that fitting a mass airflow sensor for a 150BHP engine onto my 130BHP engine would give me more power and an extra 10mpg greater fuel efficiency. He told me to look it up, I tried, and I haven't seen a thing about it! So is the garage right?? I appear to have lost some power recently anyway - the car isn't pulling like it used to, so maybe I've got problems in this area anyway... Thirdly I want to add a 3.5mm input to my standard tape deck / multi-changer in the boot. Will the standard stereo take that, or am I looking at a new stereo? Hope you can help!
  2. Not realizing that they weren't standard kit on the 55 reg A4/B7 S-line I had just taken delivery of, the TyreSmoke forums were very helpful in identifying cruise control and DIS retrofit solutions. I had an excellent e-mail exchange with Ben at Shark Performance in Mansfield who not only sourced and supplied the necessary parts, but fitted and configured them in a surprisingly quick and smooth operation (while I watched) this past Saturday morning. All for a very decent price (a LOT less than a colleague had paid the local Audi dealership for a similar retrofit), a welcome coffee and some good, knowledgeable Audi related chat too. Thanks Ben! A very happy customer! I'll be back for that iPod interface install soon. Find the contact details here: Shark Performance ADRIAN -- Cambridge UK Audi A4/B7 S-Line (now with DIS and Cruise Control)
