    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...

    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.

    Hi. Currently my 3.0 TDI is mapped to around 280bhp. I am wanting to remove the DPF and remap it to just over 300bhp. I have spoke to a few people and they recommended uprating the clutch to handle the extra torque. Does anyone have any recommendations? Or should I just change it to an OEM...

    PSI for 19"

    What pressure do all of you put in your tyres? I have a 3.0 TDI with 255/35/19. I know there is a recommended pressure on the door sticker but was just wondering experiences you have had? Remember someone saying 40psi all round is good Chris

    I have just lowered my 3.0TDI with Eibach Pro Springs. It is sitting slightly lower now than it's S-line height (approx 10-15mm). Should I go and get 4-wheel alignment? Or is this just a waste of money as its such a small drop? Was thinking of just keeping an eye out of uneven tyre wear...
