  2. still good car this i was going to get rid of some mine but a came up for sale audi A4 B6 19tdi quattro just bought lol i must stop lol
  3. Hi Steve, many thanks , I think he said it will be ok because it’s only a visual inspection. If the mot garage check the emissions he said they won’t show up . Will keep you posted...
  4. Auto stop/start wont' always work. It's subject to so many parameters that have to be right before it will kick in, the main one being that there has to be enough charge in the battery for it to restart the car. As above assume you have a petrol version? I have 20" wheels on mine and get 55mpg on a long run (diesel) and low to mid 40s around town.
  5. Your point taken, Gareth. I guess the truth is that there are not enough customers out there who feel the way I do about the importance of spare wheel. Consequently, manufacturers don't feel the need to do anything about it, especially when to design in a spare wheel compartment would cost more money and lower the performance figures a little. The only way they would do anything about it is if they lost market share because of it, e.g. to Volvo because people were flocking to buy their XC40 Phev. Very unlikely, however. Clive.
  6. Hi not really as its the mechanical side of it that is worn, but if you do get a new unit when separating the electronic driver from the calliper don't unplug the unit as when you finish putting the new calliper on the thing will go stupid and need recoding, just put the handbrake system into pad service mode and then do the work. Steve.
  7. Hi Bren, have a look on eBay or alternatively go to your local spares shop they should be able to get them from the Reg/VIN they are around about £15 quid from memory, it goes without saying the previous owner had the leak and obviously thought over tightening the flange bolt was better than buying a new set of gaskets then all his learned mates wound him up down the boozer about the cost of the repair so he sold the car. Steve.
  8. Hi, larger wheels with low profile tyres will wear tyres more quickly as the rims are much heavier than the smaller rims add to this that the wider the tyre the more rolling resistance will be created thus using more of the engines available power to drive the heavier/wider wheels, one of the basic selling points when I bought my car as it had 225x55x17 wheels which have a somewhat lower rolling coefficient than the 18/19 inch set ups with wider tyres. I to used to run Mondeos as Cabs the 2.2 Titanium x Sport I had was fitted with lunatic 19 inch rims with 245 width tyres these would last

    Hi everyone, I'm waiting for delivery of my RS7 Vorsprung, its being built as I post this. can anyone give me an idea of a approximate delivery time from its build week? Audi hasn't been very helpful and been confusing with estimates of 6 weeks to 12 weeks delivery times! Are there any owners of this particular model can give me advice on how the car performs and what its like to live with? I've tried booking a test drive but there isn't one for sale in the South West of England

  11. Hi all - new member 1st time owner of an Audi. Was going to try and set up my Audi app. It was going well until it asked me for a 10 digit number on the key. Something about a scratch off bit? Bought from 3rd part dealer - no scratch off bit. Is there any where on the key I can find it (can see a few random numbers)? Also will this even work, there is also no SD card - I was told this from start and I just use Apple CarPlay. Any help would be great !
  12. Last week
  13. Hi Guys, I recently purchased a 2021 Audi Q5 TDI S-line and in the description, it mentioned Amazon Alexa Integration. I however cant seem to find this anywhere in the car and Audi UK have been unhelpful. Any thoughts/advice? thanks
  14. Hi all, I am looking for an Audi A4 B9 honeycomb grill or black pack grill. If anyone has anything or can reconnect any that would be great. Thanks Craig
  15. Fair enough. It does seem that LEDs are brighter.
  16. Hi, I took delivery of my new Etron 55 sportback last Tuesday, and what a car
  17. Hello folks, first post, has anyone bought the upgraded k&n type air filter and saw a difference? 97 quid seems steep to not get any real life gains from it.
  18. Hi I did mine by powering it from one of the spare fuse ports in the drivers side fuse box, from memory it was one that was in the green squared bit, the only other bit of advice is if you plumb in the rear camera run the cable along the plastic trims where the carpet joins the rocker panels on the sill as this will help by keeping the cable away from the DAB amplifier in the headlining, you will still have to buy a pack of ferrite suppression clips to stop the bit that goes from the headlining to the back window otherwise it just wipes out the DAB signal because the cables are cheap Chinese r
  19. Just enjoy the car as is especially with the summer coming, and when the time is right just get something newer and with more Horses, but make sure you do it before the Mayor demands you own one of the new upmarket golf buggies. Steve.
  20. Hi Steve, Once again, thank you for your good, solid and knowledgeable advice. Methinks you are or were in the auto/design industry. I spent my working life designing Marconi transmitters and although an ageing petrol head, I gained my love and knowledge of cars/driving by experience over many years - my first mods were wider wheels and replacing SU carbs with Weber twin chokes - that's shows how old I am ! Prior to buying the Audi two years ago, my car for 18 years was a MG-ZR160, modified and remapped ( by the original MG software design engineer) to around 190bhp. Great motor,
  21. Possibly a worn DMF mine does it sometimes, the only way to find out what the lights about is to get a code reader OBD Eleven or Vcds and plug it in when you end the journey that will tell you what the fault is thats throwing the light on. Regards Steve.
  22. Hi Gareth Thank you for replying to my post and explaining the way forward i will take your advice cheers .. Kind Regards Ian
  23. Hi, OBD Eleven for the diagnostic and try youtube for any repair info, Haynes probably haven't got round to that one yet. Steve.
  24. Hi the difference between 5w-30 and 10w-40 are minimal as the flow/viscosity rates are pretty much the same when starting, BTW the w denotes winter, where the 40 scores more highly is in the upper temperature conditions as its viscosity remains constant up to 50 degrees Celsius where the 30 is only good up to 30 degrees celsius. therefore if you do a lot of town or fast driving the 40 is the better option as it gives better protection for the engine components that are under higher thermal stress, where as the 30 will not. Zero 30-40 oils were developed for the high performance market whe
  25. Worth changing then on a planned maintenance basis, but whether it eases the issue will have to be seen. Kind regards, Gareth.
  26. So I have a Carista OBD scanner for quick jobs on the phone. Found that and it brought up a number of ignition faults and others. Managed to clear all and light is now off and stayed off. Happy days. No coding required. Thanks for the help here.
