  Costly Audi parts
Posted by: lyndon.dickens - 07-06-17, 10:17 PM - Forum: General Audi Chat - Replies (2)

Now I don't normally complain about the cost of parts for my car. Its an RS and I expect things to cost a bit if they need replacing. However, I'm just in the process of doing the front brakes. I have a spare set of refurb Discs already, so that's good, and I just got some Red Stuff pads at £185 which is fine. However I found out that the small metal clips that hold the pads in place were either broken or one actually missing (there are 4 in all). So I have had to replace them too.

So 4 thin metal spring clips and 4 pins to hold them in place - £53!

Now that really is taking the mick.

Just hope these pads do the trick now! At the moment the RS brakes worse than my SSangYong Tivoli (Which to be fair has awesome brakes for a small SUV no one has heard of)

On the plus side, I've just found out what the rattle in my passenger seat was that has been driving me mad for the past few months.

  A4 needed for filming of TV show
Posted by: Paul Wadge - 06-06-17, 03:25 PM - Forum: General Audi Chat - Replies (2)

I have received a request from a TV production company who would like to borrow an A4 for a short amount of filming. I can't give any more detail at the moment but wanted to asses whether there is any interest from any of our members (with A4s of course).

Downloaded the latest Audi Driver with our article in it.

Looks very good. Plus Dave's Coupe quattro article too as a bonus!

  So quattro is being killed off.

So it looks like quattro - the actual 4 wheel drive system, not the branding Audi use for everything 4 wheel drive these days - is being killed off. The introduction last year of the All Road with the new inline 4 wheel drive system sees it work like Haldex with drive being from the front unless slip is detected when the rear is brought into play.

Well I know Haldex is a good system and I'm sure this new version will be very good too, but those of us who like our 4 wheel drive permanent are going to be missing out on new models. Still it had a good run from 1981 to whenever the last of the real quattros are phased out.

Enjoy it while it lasts I guess....
