    Parallels Desktop 6 and VCDS (on Mac)

    I've recently bought a genuine Hex+CAN lead, and can report that it works perfectly (as far as I can tell) on my Mac 10.6.5 Snow Leopard with Parallels Desktop 6 (Build 6.0.11822). No fiddling about with settings, it 'just worked.' Granted I haven't done any coding or logging, but a scan works...

    Phone options with EXTERNAL aerial

    I'm looking to fit some sort of phone kit to my B7. It is very important to me to have an external aerial, principally because after having a car with one it makes for much more consitent call quality on the move. Does the OEM bluetooth allow an external aerial? More specifically is it RSAP...

    Where can I buy a set of steel rims from?

    Does anyone know where I could buy a set of steel rims from? Up until now I have been swapping between winter and summer tyres, but now my summer alloys are bigger so I need a set of cheap steel rims for the winter tyres. I've looked at GSF and Eurocarparts without much luck. Where else can I...

    A2: New Car

    My partner has just started a new job, and has her predecessors company car for 6 months. It's an Audi A2 1.4 tdi, which I reckon isn't too bad! Sadly it's a poverty spec one with no air-conditioning and a tape player; apparently when it arrived they had sent the wrong one, but my partners...

    How much is 1BE suspension lowered

    How much does the 1BE sports suspension lower the car over standard? I'm loooking at upgrading the suspension on my A4 B5, but it bottoms out enough already so lowering more isn't really an option.

    Genuine or Thule/Mont Blanc Roof Bars

    I need to get a roof rack for my A4 (Avant with Roof Rails), and have been looking at getting a pair off ebay. I've been trying to get a second hand genuine set, but they are going for as much as a new Thule set (£80-90) at the moment. Does anyone know if the genuine ones are better, or should...

    AM tuning on Concert

    Can anyone tell me how to tune AM on my concert head unit? The car came without an manual for the radio, and I've tried to find one on the internet to no avail. When you press the scan buttons, the radio scans (unsurprisingly). But it never locks onto anything so just keeps going round and...
