    Fitted my hids the other night then straight away ABS etc warning lights come on. What I've learnt, expensive hids, cheap hids it's pot luck whether they'll throw the abs lights up. Moving the ballasts works for some people for me it didn't. The ground to the near side headlight shares the same...

    Rear Arm Rest Cup Holder

    About a year ago I made myself a cup holder to go in the rear armrest of the A4. 2 spaces for drinks and a storage area. This one... and it's served it's purpose brilliantly. With a 9 and a 4 year old in the back it's been perfect for our outings. I've now made one that fits even better...

    I've read the a4 mod site on how to strip the headlights and it says its not as easy as putting them in oven to separate them. Now I only want to blacken the long chrome bit at the inside front of the headlight, not bothered about blackening the rest. My question is, why can't I just put them in...

    Show me your rear of your Avant.

    I've recently bought a 130 sport avant with s-line badges already on it but the previous owner has removed the 1.9 badge but left the tdi badge and put the s-line under the tdi. Just doesn't look right. (Pic would have been better I know). Any pics of different badges or removed completely anyone??
