    DQ250 to DQ500 swap

    I've no idea about bosch vs siemans for the tdi and petrol mechatronics, I still have the nzs mechatronic so could have a look who it's made by. The nzs gearbox had faulty syncromesh shafts rather than a component protection issue, it was fine when cold then wouldn't rev match correctly once...

    DQ250 to DQ500 swap

    Component protection on the dq500 only affects the mqb chassis, doesnt matter on the pre mqb stuff as the gearboxes communicate with the car differently. Just avoid the 2013 ones as stated in this thread as there was a vw tpi for the syncromesh as per the thread and try to get something off a...

    A4 vs S4 ride comfort

    Thanks for the info, I've now ended up with another question though - is the b9 s-line available with comfort and presumably sport suspension or simply normal suspension and mag ride? Thanks

    A4 vs S4 ride comfort

    Your comparison between b9 a4 and b7 s-line's I recently had an s-line a5 sportback as a courtesy car and it was alot comfier ride over the b7 (note my b7 is an avant if it makes any difference) I'm surprised that you say the b9 is so similar to the b7 Thanks

    A4 vs S4 ride comfort

    Hello and sorry for the strange thread! I wondered if anybody can compare the B9 suspension as far as the ride comfort goes, the B9 s-line suspension seems to be quite well damped and good at absorbing the bumps Is it possible that people can compare between the normal A4 s-line and S4 or, if...

    Wanted SOLID FLYWHEEL FOR A4 B7 2.0 TFSI RS4 CONVERSION

    I'd personally stick with a dmf over SMF unless you plan on going mental, my sachs clutch is the non sprung centre so judders a bit at idle at biting point, the sprung version should be smoother, a SMF would be worse still

    Wanted SOLID FLYWHEEL FOR A4 B7 2.0 TFSI RS4 CONVERSION

    Why not keep the dmf and fit an organic clutch and uprated pressure plate? I fitted a sachs clutch in mine and my mum found it fine to drive compared to her golf but with a bit stiffer clutch pedal and more torque capacity

    Facelift FL Tick / Rattle

    There are maps to sort the wastegate rattle now, think a Dutch company were the first to sort it (DVX from memory) but possibly mrc have updated their maps to sort it now too

    Found Audi rs3 8p

    Good luck with your search, I think you'll struggle to find low mileage depending how low you're looking at with your budget - just had a quick nosey on ebay to see where the prices are on there and sub 50k miles looks to be around or above your budget on there. I think most have been modded...
