    • Thanks Paul, much appreciated. It is fun indeed, im used to the V6 lump in my other car but needless to say for once the better half isnt complaining as she gets to drive the other car every day while I use the audi, to be honest I prefer the audi by far so its happy days all round at the moment. The main iseue im having at the moment is getting hold of the correct wipers, I ended up ordering flat wipers through the firm I work for as I was having issues getting the correct ones, lo and behold, the wrong ones turmed up lol. Ive had to basically force them on temporarily as the old ones were so badly split id have done a better job wiping the windscreen with my hand lol 
    • Only if you fit them to reflector headlights. I've fitted them to my passat that has halogen bulbs but projector headlights. Passes mot fine (last Thursday being the latest). Beam pattern and cut off is spot on.  Don't worry Id never fit hids to the existing reflector lights. That's why I wondering if you could get some after market projector lights for the a6 that I could plug straight into the existing connection. 
    • Not sure what do you mean by B8 ? On a6 c6 Yes . The 2004-2006 BMK 3.0tdi has these problems  In 2006 they relised a revised unit ABS 3.0tdi they they improved injestors and injectors. And the 2009 facelifted engine was even better  Chain wasnt the issue , top tensioners it what the problem is .  But the "chain" is a problem in all audis... 3.2 and 4.2 petrol had issues .  Ive been reading on forums that 2011-2013 audis had issues with the chain as well...
    • I was told, the 3Ltr Quattro  TDI B8 has a strong engine, but the timing chains and other parts can be stupid expensive, if you get problems with these cars. Not sure if that's true. Or is some just trying to put me off. ?   
    • Hi , I have owned mine for 2 years from new and now covered 19k miles with no issues. It is one of the best engines avail today and used in a number of cars. My son has a Seat Leon FR using the same engine again with no issues.
    • Armrest is pretty easy. Took me about half an hour.  You have to cut a hole in the center to take the bracket. Its not a great design though as it fowls the handbrake 
    • Yeah I'd read up that you could do it manually. But I do have vcds so wanted to do it the correct way. Done it once now, so I'll be more confident in the future. 🙂
    • What do you mean by hdi kit? Xenons in halogen lamps ? They are illigal and will not pass mot   
    • Quick tip on rear pads. You can reverse + and - on the epb motor and wind the pistons this way 🙂 . If you have no access to vcds
