    slight rattle from right side of head 3.2

    Sorry, my previous post was form a device on which text input was challenging, so now I'm back again with the info you might be after: Various sources report that blocks 208 and 209 are no clear indication of the status of your chain: people have been running fine for quite a while with these...

    slight rattle from right side of head 3.2

    there is a way of knowing if the chain is stretched or not, by unscrewing 1 or 2 bits and looking at the timing markers. it is a 2 hour job, max. I will look up the details for you.

    Exhaust back box

    turbo advice

    I know nothing about this, BUT: I think it would help if you posted what kind of engine you currently have (and I think just bolting on some other type of turbo - besides fittment issues - will NOT work straight away, you'll probably require new ECU software)

    Pics of black&silver TTRS/Rotor alloys?

    Hi, anyone's got a link to pics of an A3/S3/RS3 with black&silver TTRS/Rotor alloys? I'm wondering what it would look like if they are painted black but only the center part, not the 'silver' edge. So basically the black-and-red RS3 rims, but without the red :haha:

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?

    Ok, as much as I appreciate your replies, I'm still confused! :think: But maybe I should be more clear, so I'll put some pictures up. Here's the car in question: It's a 2005 A3 that's been fitted with a pre-facelift S3 front bumper (with the mesh fog grilles, not visible in the pics) and a...

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?
