    Alternator Pulley Pain

    Hi Everone, hope you are all well, the car started with a chirping/squeeling noise from the front pulleys a few weeks ago and it seems worse when cornering for some reason or going round a roundabout, so I got the bonnet up and I could have sworn the noise was coming from the belt tensioner so I...

    Replacing wings

    No, it's not because I can't afford it, if I wanted a body shop job that's what I'd go and get, it all about choice and what you want, I was saying in general terms the way I am going with my car only and not what anyone else should do, I am going to get a couple of painted wings and fit myself...

    Exhausted!!

    I've had a look on the Bosal website and it shows the fwd centre section for the quattro, it does not show the twin pipe silencer, I did wonder whether I could delete the centre box, I have watched a YouTube vid where a guy with an S4 had the centre section chopped out and replaced with two...

    M.o.t Woes!!!

    Both my b5 and b6 both cars had the undertray missing when I purchased the cars and I have replaced both, I think these do help to shield the underneath from the worst of the weather although I do agree with pie-eyedpiper that they are a bit of a pain come service time.
