I had the same problem a few months back. My car had been in storage for 12 months while I built a garage with the battery disconnected. Someone I know with vagcom read the codes and there was 1 there about the alarm but I don’t know what it was. We cleared the codes and it’s been fine since
The light that lights up the 2 on the tachometer flashes every now and again on mine as well. It’s not done it for a while but must be a bad soldered connection. There is a company I’ve seen on wheeler dealers that repairs clusters, I can’t remember their name though.
I run them on my standard 19” Le Mans and run mid-low 30’s all round. Mine are ps3’s so older than yours. I’d imagine the Pa4 will be a decent upgrade from the 3 as is usually the case with Michelin. My ABS kicks in so much sooner than on PS4s’s it feels dangerous and don’t even get me started...
8.5 width with et 35 is quite a flush fit as it is, add a spacer in and you’ll be poking. Your only possible option would be to have them machined out to the right centre bore.
Have you checked the cost of a brand new set of reps in the right size with tyres from somewhere like wheelbase? There...
I’ve got a set of Michelin pilot alpins that I’ve had on the past couple of winters. They are supposed to be the most performance orientated winters, I’ve found them to be excellent in the few days of snow a year we get on the Pennines, other than that I think that wet traction/cornering is...
I’m not sure exactly where the drains are on the B8 as mine is garaged so never needed to clear them, I’ve cleared the 1 on my B6 a few times and also on my mates BMW using this
Kw do a cancellation kit, I think it’s some sort of resistor that plugs in and tricks the control module into thinking the active suspension is still fitted. I think I may have seen that someone else had released a similar product but can’t think who it was
Didn’t realise it had the controls for the alarm in the siren, in that case I’ll give it a go. Other than that I wonder if it’s possible to have the alarm coded out so I can leave it in place in case it’s something else and I can put it back on at a later date?
I forgot about the alarm situation earlier and locked the car, the alarm went off a minute later and wouldn’t turn off! I tried pressing the buttons on the key, ignition on, started the car etc and nothing would stop it. I ended up disconnecting the battery and it still ran on for a couple of...
Anyone ever had their alarm randomly go off?
Whenever my cars locked it goes off within a couple of minutes, but the hazards don’t flash!
Luckily it’s locked in a garage over night but I can’t use it to go anywhere I need to get out and leave it parked up!
I’ve got q5 speedlines on my s4, I’m pretty low on kw v3’s as well. I’ve put 245/30/20’s on and there is no rubbing but it’s pretty close. You may get away with 255/30/20 with minimal rubbing if not as low as I am but maybe only with certain make of tyre.
There’s not many threads I follow outside of the b8 section but this is 1 of them and what a build this has turned into!
Ap brakes are in a different league than anything else, I can’t overheat mine no matter how hard I try. Be very careful of coming to a complete stop though when they’re hot...
