    Idle Speed - TFSi. Can it be altered?

    Question as per title really - my TFSi (BUL) idles lumpily - it actually makes the car shake. I think the idle speed is a bit too slow (around 800 revs) as a very tiny increase with the throttle pedal smooths things out. Therefore, I would like to increase it a little permanently. Is this...

    1.4 TFSi intermttent power loss?

    Hi all, my brothers A1 (11 plate) seems to have an annoying intermittent problem in that the power just drops off at unpredictable times - Mostly when accelerating but occasionally whilst cruising along. The effect is that the engine is 'holding back' - like maybe the turbo is cutting out...

    Hey folks, just picked up a nice set of 18" wheels with winter tyres - they were on an A5 - I HOPE they will fit the A4 OK? Its got 18s on it already.

    Servotronic steering assist

    Hi all - I have this on my S line Avant. The problem seems to be that it allows the wheels to turn too far at low speed (maneouvering) and this allows the two top Suspension arms (they are adjustable) to actually contact each other which is destroying the ball joint boots! Another symptom...

    Coil Packs colour

    Hi folks, maybe a daft question but, I rather like the appearance of the Coil packs when they are Red. Now, I have checked up on these - you can get them on fleabay for around £100. However, being an Aberdonian this doesn't sit well so................. my question is.............. Can you just...

    Steering Stops

    Hey folks, probably been asked before - Can you actually set the steering stops on the Audi where YOU want them - NOT where the 'electronic brain' wants them? I ask because I know that on my car it is turning too far - This is causing the top suspension arms (mine are adjustable) to be forced...

    Fuel Filter Woes.....

    Hi folks - Not specifically A4 but - Here's something worth looking at on your Audi - the fuel filter. Today I had to change this on my brothers A1 as it had corroded through & was not just leaking but SPRAYING petrol out at high pressure. It is surprising how much modern petrol damages tarmac -...

    Fuel Filter Drama......

    Hi folks - Here's something worth looking at on your A1 - the fuel filter. Today I had to change this on my brothers A1 as it had corroded through & was not just leaking but SPRAYING petrol out at high pressure. This hole is actually on top of the filter (as mounted on car). Now a nice shiny...

    Need an S Line grille?

    Hey folks - I have a problem - I need an S Line grille to stick in my car so I can rebuild my RS(ish) grille that I made last year. Basically, the plastic mesh that I grafted in has all fallen out! I think the plastic compound the mesh I used is made from just won't bond properly with the glues...

    Oil Level Warning on DIS

    Hi folks - got an annoying problem on the old bus - It had a non working sensor unit on it (BUL engine) so I changed it for a new one (they appear to be identical side by side on the bench) & now I can't seem to go more than a few miles at a time without the warning coming up on the DIS. I KNOW...

    S Line Suspension 'Oddities' ?

    Hello folks - I was browsing about the old interweb thingie looking for suspension kits for the S Line cars & found that some places mention that the Front upper arms are different on the S line? Does anyone know anything about it? are they longer/shorter or what is the actual difference? Or...

    Door Mirror Compatibility

    Hey folks - can anyone confirm if the door mirrors are the same part across the model range? I've got a B6 Avant Quattro (as well as the B7) & need a passenger side door mirror -a ladder fell on it and snapped it clean off! As far as I can see, the B6 & B7 use the same mirrors? Looking on the...

    Decided to stick on a front lip spoiler - Literally!

    Hello all, I had the bumper off to fix a grille issue & have had a roll of rubber spoiler kicking around for a while. I thought I'd stick it on as an interim to putting a Cupra version on further down the line. This is the stuff I used I used a few extras as opposed to trusting that the...
