    CRD-t DTUK Tuning box removal

    COD on Premium Unleaded (97RON+)?

    AutoExpress did a test a couple of years ago comparing different grades of a search on their web site, but I have read several impartial articles which claim the more expensive fuels do indeed have mpg, performance and cleaning advantages.

    Re what is a DTM

    The full translation is Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters It translates into German Touring Car Masters, and is the main touring car championship in Germany....when Audi wins, they tend to bring out a version of the winning car for sale to the public, and call it the DTM version ( although it is...

    Gloss black dash trim for S4 B8

    Should be possible providing you get the part numbers.....the dash is actually two pieces, but from memory the prices are ridiculous. I actually took mine off on my old B8 S4 and sent them to a paint specialist to paint them in Piano Black finish......looked superb and much cheaper than OE Audi...

    Drivers Door Creaking Noise. (Aaaarrrgh!)

    I had a similar thing and it turned out to be the small screw which holds a white plastic part ( I think part of the locking mechanism ) which sits behind the door skin...took the door trim off and the screw was loose so I replaced it with a slightly larger one and that cured it......really...

    3.0 tdi 245PS oil consumption

    Hi Dan, Just passed 7,000 with mine and it needed a small top-up so it's pretty normal I think. Regarding the type of oil, you want Castrol Edge 5W 30 :yes:

    Time for a change

    As Daggerit says, sounds like a good deal. I'd be interested to hear what you think about the Conti's as well, as I am going through a set of tyres a year currently and it is either those or GY Eagle F1 *** II's next time..:thumbsup:

    What's the bypass connector guys ? Does that enable you to remove the box whilst still leaving everything else in situ ?

    S4 vs 3.0tdi (including B9) platform.

    I thought you were running the DTI Tuning box on your A4 Daggerit.......or are you just looking for a different route to the power ?

    Changing S-tronic T-Bar selector for round S-Tronic one ?

    Ok, no way around the heating and twisting which is a major headache as I have all the dexterity and feel of a Rhino, so I guarantee I will break it !!! Shame though as it really does look significantly better .....ah well !! Presumably you couldn't fit the new knob with the...

    Changing S-tronic T-Bar selector for round S-Tronic one ?

    Has anyone here done this mod ? The standard T shaped gear selector bar for the S-Tronic gearlever is awful, and the round one fitted to some other models in Audi's range, with the front push button release looks SOOOOOOOO much better. I have read around and it seems like some guys overseas...
