    Upgraded to pulley tune

    Went in for the forge pulley and tune today, previously had just a remap. Car is a lot more responsive and pulls much better at the top. All the work and tune was completed at Richard Martin Automotive Solutions. Sent from my JSN-L21 using Tapatalk

    Well I took advantage of the gsf car parts discount code over the weekend and replaced the rear discs and pads today, I was shocked at the condition of the old discs! I had no terrible noises either. Sent from my PRA-LX1 using Tapatalk

    Vogtland springs

    Fought against the hail and rain today and fitted some vogtland 30mm springs with new Billy B4s as my originals were starting to leak. I'll get some pics on once they have settled but they ride spot, similar to factory just a much tighter feel and better turn in

    Crank pulley change

    Well I braved the -10 temps (wind chill) and changed the crank pulley, water pump, both belts and both idlers. Hardest part was trying to get the front bumper on properly!

    S4 home made intake

    Decided to make my own intake and heat shield, it's not quite finished as I need to wrap the heat shield and Pipe work in cool tape but nearly there. Cost around £100 for all the bits so not too bad.

    Trying to enjoy my new exhaust system on the way home when I noticed something wasn't right. The car had no power after about 3k rpm and struggled to rev up. Got home and plugged in my foxwell handheld and got this code below. No eml light on and the code clears but comes straight back on. Any...

    S4 advice

    Hi, I'm looking at px my A5 for a late 59 plate s4 with 70k on it. It's had 1 owner and got full history. I'm quite handy with cars so wear and tear stuff doesn't really bother me but I would like to know if there are any major things I should be aware of? It's a manual btw. Thanks all

    Capa 3.0tdi crank pulley failure

    Anyone changing the aux v belt, I would recommend changing the crank pulley as well. I changed the water pump, and tensioner with the belt but not the crank pulley and it has now failed. I see this used to be an issue on the earlier engines.
