    ETKA, Etos and Workshop Manuals.

    Sorry sonny Jim, you're wrong again. It was not a rant, and it certianly was not a cry for help, but a serious comment on the lack of factory support for the product. I do not want to HAVE to buy anything which is pirated. I am more than willing to pay a good price for the real thing. The...

    ETKA, Etos and Workshop Manuals.

    You've missed the point. If VAG had the decency to sell it over the counter, they would not need a hard lock. ps (married blonde) I do know where to get pirated copies. You've missed the point as well.

    ETKA, Etos and Workshop Manuals.

    WHY THE HELL DON'T VAG SELL ETKA , ETOS and WORKSHOP MANUALS over the counter, they could make a fortune. Back in the 1960s and 1970s I rallyed SAABs. I could buy all of the workshop manuals, parts lists, rally manuals from SAAB. If you wrote to them they would send you the information that I...

    A2 Owners at Audi-Sport

    The reason that there arn't may A2 posts is that there arn't many A2s. The A2 tech spec is brilliant, but, as I understand it, it was originally design was as a hybrid/dual fuel car. So it ended up too tall and too narrow and thus did not look quite right. I like it, and for technical...

    Rear Window Clearing

    I have not been up close to an A2, thye are as rare as rocking horse s**t in Ireland. You may have read that we were going to buy one, but now the toss up is between a Polo GTI, WHY DID THEY STOP MAKING IT, and a Lupo, GTI or Sport. Got to get back to the MK II GTI feeling, ours is a bit dead...

    Audi 80 B3 Sports

    The rear light clusters probably will not fit! If I remember correctly, they slope in the opposite direction. They beauty of the B3 is the short boot, the B4 was larger. The front is the same. If you want to fit a B4 front bumper, I believe you have to change the front wings. This will...

    Carbon or Aluminium Trim?

    There should be a third catagory of tick box: Neither. Trim should be removed, unless it serves a purpose,: ie safety requirements. Aluminium should be used for body panels and low stressed components to save weight. Magnesium alloys are preferable of course. Carbon Fibre composites should...

    16" Wheels - 5 x 112 PCD

    When I bend the 90 20v Q, I destroyed one of my 16" RGs. (Together with the wishbone, undertray and sump) I need information on whether Audi made 16" space savers and/or 16" steels, on 5 x 112 PCD? If so does anyone know the clearance diameter, or radius, adjacent to the hub face? The RGs are...

    90 20v Q - Wanted

    Sorry, I am keeping them for the re-build. At the moment I have no garage, if I had one I still don't have the time to work on any of my unroadworthy cars. I am re-furbishing an old barn at present and all spare cash and time goes into that. One day I shall re-furbish the MkI Golf, MkII Golf...

    Is this The End for Tony Bair??

    I spent years, in the UK, working for the Labour Party and I was proud when they were elected. 19 years of the cow Thacher, I once had to meet her, as I was on a committee run by her Health Secretary, Sir Hugh Rossi, good English name that, I have the photo to prove it. So disillusioned by...

    A2 New Model

    OK, I know that the A2 was'nt really an Audi, as it was based on a VW engine and transmission, but so are the A3 and TT. At least it followed the Vorsprung durch Technik philosophy with a lightweight aluminium body and simlple, form-follows-function, lines. (I must admit it should have been...

    A2 pdf brochure - early models???

    I would also like information on A2 model specifications. I always intended to buy a new A2 in 2007, when some savings matured, of course I have left it too late. My requirements are fairly basic in that I am really only interested in 1.4 TDis, as this, together with the 1.4 petrol, were the...

    1992 2.0E 100/A6 Avant - Autocheck

    I have an infuriating problem with the Autocheck on my car. The bulb failure light is almost constantly on. I have checked, and cleaned, all connections that I can find, with no success. I do not own a Bently manual for this car, but my 90 20v Bently manual shows some form of control box at each...
