  1. Hi everyone, Recently my Dad has given me his old Audi A6 C5 which he's owned since the early 2000's. It's a FWD 1896cc diesel which has had zero mechanical issues; the only problem it's had was an electrical issue, caused from leaves building up between the windscreen and the bonnet. It's in good condition and is currently just sat collecting dust in his garage so it's got me wondering whether this could potentially be a nice little project car. I want to turn it into something a bit more exciting so I was wondering whether it would be possible to convert this into a AWD 'Quattro' with (mostly) bolt on parts or would I need to make some significant changes to the body of the car? I would imagine the chassis/frame of this car is the same as it's Quattro variants of the same year so it's just a case of fitting a drivetrain/shaft? Any insight would be really appreciated. Like I said, I'm just exploring the possibility currently. I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Matt
  2. Hi everyone, This is my first time posting a forum topic on Audi Owners Club so hopefully I get this right. Basically I have a bit of a project car idea in mind and I'm looking for some advise. My Dad has driven a Audi A6 C5 since he purchased it second hand in the early 2000's. It's a FWD 1896cc diesel which has had zero mechanical problems; the only thing he has had trouble with is the ECU which got flooded with autumn leaves a few years back. Just over a year and a half ago he decided to retire the A6 when he got himself an Audi A4 2014 reg and has given me the A6. Since then I've been wondering whether I could turn this car into something a bit more exciting so with that in mind, is it possible to convert this FWD Audi C5 into a AWD 'Quattro' with (mostly) bolt on parts? Or would the whole body of the car need to be cut up and altered to get the drivetrain/shaft in? My guess would be the chassis and frame is the same as the Quattro variants sold in 2000 but I don't know, any insight would be appreciated. If possible I plan to swap the engine with something with more power like Audi's 1.8T petrol and other upgrades for some track fun. Look forward to hearing from you in advance. Matt

    Hi I have an A4 cabriolet 2.0 TSi 2008 plate. For a while now the car does not start when it displays the self levelling/range headlight symbol. If it does eventually start and the symbol disappears, I often have the engine management light on and the EPC light. If I turn the ignition off it often clears it and the car is fine. Other times when it starts the brake warning light comes on. It often happens when parked on slopes. I have tried removing the fuse for the lights, and this worked for a while, but now does not work. Sometimes playing with various switches enables the levelling light to disappear and it starts. Dipstick has lost its rubber seal, this caused the engine management light to be on last but was cleared with a poke or two. The car is currently in a car park as it would not start tonight. Any help greatly appreciated. Mark
  4. Hi Hope someone has some ideas and can help me with the below please? Audi A6 avant c7 v6 3L TDI I have noticed a black splatter around the coolant reservoir and top engine cover. Upon further inspection noticed a black mass of more of the same around where exhaust is coming out of the engine. It is totally solid/hard. What is that? Engine runs ok apart from very rare juddering on cold start and some coolant disappearing overtime. (Like 200mil over a month or two) No leaks of any sort noticed This black hard mass looks worrying 😞 No loss of power, no overheating, coolant reservoir nice and clean, oil cap clean, no bad smoke coming out of exhaust- none of the worrying bits if you know what I mean? Any help would be much appreciated. See pictures attached.
  5. Hey Guys, New to the forum, I have a diesel hatch in manual with cloth seats (nothing too exciting to write home about). My friend recently bought the new E-tron (electric suv) and I must say it is some piece of kit! Very techy and silent, it is abit bigger than a Q5 and the gadgets in it are unreal! I actually made a video on his E-tron because its was very techy and had lots of toys... Here is a wee link if anyone wants to see it 🙂 Thomas.

  7. Hello everyone, As a fan of all things audi I thought it's only right to join a forum or club. My local clubs are let's say, financed warranty wannabes. Looking for a forum with a mix of cars and ages of cars, people etc and came across AOC. Had a read through some of the chats and guides and thought yes this is the one for me! Anyway, I am a mechanic, I live in Tamworth staffs, I work on landrovers and jaguars for a living, purely because it pays the bills, but I have always had a passion for VAG, 😂. Only owned 1 Ford in the last 13 year's.. I have owned several vw and audi models, mostly older. A3 a4 golf tt a6 etc I have worked on and fixed a variety of issues and faults from electrical to mechanical on most of the range apart from the really new stuff. So hopefully I have some knowledge that I can share with you guys and gals in return for the knowledge I have taken from here in recent months. Anyway, be nice to chat and maybe even see some faces of likeminded people at a future Audi meet. Chris The Brummie Mechanic

  18. Hi, I have an audi a3 58 plate facelift. My rear right door does not open from the inside or the outside. I can hear the lock though. I need a rear door lock actuator but I need an 8-Pin one. The problem is I can't find an 8-pin one. Would a 7-Pin or 9-Pin work ?
  19. I'm looking to buy my dream car! I have very little knowledge of engines, but really need some advice on what parts are needed for this R8. Is it worth buying if I can get it cheap? Helpful / constructive advice is much appreciated.
  20. I thinks that updating the mmi will corrupt the mmi and have knock on effects and not allow me ever to drive the car again. and that there is no way of putting the car back because I dont have the orignal firmware disc. is this true?
  21. Hi I had my 2013 Audi A3 1.6TDI remapped from 105hp to 135hp about 9 months ago, never had any problems been fantastic. But recently when accelerating hard the engine will pretty much go into limp mode and the coil shaped light starts flashing? As soon as I pull over turn the engine on and back off the light goes and the car works perfectly. It has always started first time. When scanning with the Carista OBd scanner 6 Faults detected - I get Heater & Air conditioning - 262914 Central Electronics - 262934, 266756, 267030, 787211, 787465 Could it just be as simple as replacing the glow plugs or would they not affect the car when accelerating? Thanks any advice is useful
  22. Hello, As the title suggests I have been considering buying a R8. You can get a lot of car for the money but still I wonder what would be better V8 or V10 then running costs, potential bugbears and generally how they are to live with? Any advice or tips would be most welcome. Thanks!
  23. So my car has been of the road now for so long! Nearly a year. All because the transfer box has broke (literally got a hole in it, can’t be fixed) now from what I’ve learnt, they don’t make the transfer box anymore (discontinued). Now this is the second time this has happened, and I’m not sure why! So the first time it happened, I got sent a part, by a Audi specific breakers, they confirmed it was the right one... now I’m thinking, maybe it wasn’t!? And I’ve tried and tried to find out the correct part number for the transfer box that should be in my car, but no luck. Does anyone know? It’s a Audi A3 3.2 v6 8p 2004, someone must use be able to help! Thank you
  24. Hello Everyone, I am looking to buy an Audi Q2, but I would appreciate if I could try it for a day or two before I buy it. Any suggestions? Where can I hire an Audi q2 for a day or two? Or anyone who owns an Audi Q2 would be interested in renting it to me for a day or two in London? I could offer 200 pounds per day. If you are interested, please email me: Thank you. Susan
