    A4 TQS - can I get a CAT B re-categorised

    Looking for some advice as I've just been told my TQS must be scrapped. Long story short, the car was involved in a rear end shunt in 2014. My insurers at the time said that it was beyond economical repair and therefore it was to be scrapped. I never received any other paperwork stating a...

I've just been given one from a pal...he thinks it came from a Golf 1.8T. Hoping it works but need clarification. BB's thread makes mention of the above ecu but...

    TQS brake upgrade - brake bias rebalance

    So some thoughts after 3k+ miles on the 312 front brake upgrade. Good overall improvement. Noticeable improvement in felt braking force v Pedal pressure, ABS also kicks in sooner under hard braking but it's got me thinking about overall brake bias. Obviously with bigger front discs there's...

    What the best shock to go with Eibach Pro-kit springs?

    Changed the stock springs on my TQS to Eibach Pro-Kit springs last year but now want to change the shocks? Am I right in saying the B8 shocks are the correct shock for the Pro-Kit springs? Any opinions on these shocks or an alternative that works well with the Pro-Kit springs?

    Parrot MKi9200 install in A4 B5...MP3 sound issues

    I installed a parrot BT handsfree kit MKi9200 last year. The BT system works really well but I never bothered playing any MP3 music till now. All MP3 music only comes from the tiny door tweeters. I believe it's because the main door & rear speakers are amped. It's the original Concert audio...

    TQS rear caliper suppliers?

    My rear calipers are beginning to stick when the hand brake is left on for a few days. I'm looking for a little direction as to where's best. They a completely standard BTW. GSF are quoting £200+ a side, EBC circa £100 each and then a eBay listing £100 for 2! I've read a little about the...

    A4 TQS N/S rear ABS ring

    So I can't see one when I pull the ABS sensor out! I swapped the old ABS sensor out a couple of weeks ago as I suspected it was dead as the last time I looked it had been 'slightly' covered in iron filings and the end had been pushed too near the ring and marked it. When I pulled it out this...

    Where best for new brake pads / SS hoses?

    It's time for some new brake pads on my 1.8TQS saloon. The stock disks and calipers are being kept so it's just the pads and possibly some SS hoses that I'll get. A brief search on here would suggest Ferodo DS2500 or Mintex M1144 pads are a good upgrade. However, I'm struggling to locate...

    A4 TQS Water pump replacement with front bumper intact?

    As this possible or just a huge ball ache and a recipe for multiple busted knuckles? The timing belt was only changed 35K ago (@ 70k) so ideally I'd just do the WP on its own. I've never changed a WP (or timing belt for that matter) before but I'm reasonably confident it's...
