    A5 3.0 TDI S-Tronic & Remap

    Yes I had a BMW 330ci Convertible, 2002 model with was automatic. The gearbox was awful, felt like an eternity to change gear (probably around a second!). Can't wait to give it a try now and see if it changes my vision on autos.

    A5 3.0 TDI S-Tronic & Remap

    Thanks for that info, helped me a lot. As its a friends car I know he takes good care of them. I'll still check the gearbox oil has been done though. At the moment it has done 42k. I may even be able to swap cars for a few days to see what it's like on a daily basis. I love my A4 3.0 TDI so...

    Which Discs?

    MTEC look good. Which ones to choose though? They have about 4 or 5 designs.

    A5 Sportback RS5 style diffuser

    Hi. Does anyone know if there is a rear diffuser available for the A5 that would cater for larger exhausts? I am looking to have a custom exhaust made with oval tips, however, don't want to go down the route of full rear bumper conversion if I don't have to. Obviously the RS5 diffuser won't fit...

    A5 3.0 TDI S-Tronic & Remap

    Hi. I currently own an A4 B8 3.0 TDI (2008 Manual) and now have the opportunity to buy my mate's A5 3.0 TDI S-Tronic (2009 plate). They are essentially the same engine I believe - 240bhp. Do any of you own this model in the S-Tronic? If so, are you happy with it or have you had any problems...

    New Washer Jet

    How easy is it to replace my drivers side windscreen washer jet? It still works but the spray is very low down the windscreen. I have tried the old method of sticking a pin in but there is just no movement whatsoever. Car is a 2008 B8. Thanks Chris

    B8 Standard Audio - Amp upgrade?

    Hi. I have the standard concert audio in my B8. Last year I replaced the standard thin Sub with a JL Audio that fits perfectly. The sound is a whole lot better but still lacks power (obviously because I still have the standard amp powering it). Has anyone replaced the amp with a higher powered...

    Winter Tyres Or Wheels & Tyres ????

    Hi Anthony. I have just fitted my standard 18" s-line wheels back to the car with 245/40/18 Nokian winter tyres (great reviews). My 19" rotors with Goodyear Eagle F1s have been safely put away until next summer. I do this each winter as it keeps my 19"s in tip-top condition, away from salt and...

    Rattle - near windscreen

    A little update on this - I removed the fuse box cover, and also the 'leaf catcher' under the bonnet, as I know this was loose. Been driving around and no rattle anymore so I assume it is one of these things. Just put the fuse box cover back in tonight and will drive over the next couple of...

    Rattle - near windscreen

    It does seem like its coming from near the right speaker grille near the window. Doesn't go away when I tap it though. Hope I don't need to take half the dash away. Hate rattles!!!
