    Good luck to you if the dealer is replacing the rotors. The difference between a dealer mechanic and an enthusiast / race mechanic is just money, no object for one and the bottom line for the other...

    Haven't heard of this personally, only about the wave rotors. Clearly the dealer hasn't either.

    I'd be worried if someone machined the rotors and re-installed the old pads. There are a very few occasions where you might chance that and none of them include where there was a problem with the...

    Back to basics. Does the grinding noise only appear when the brakes are applied? If so then it should be a pad / rotor issue. You say the rotors were machined for free but you never confirmed if new...

    G'day Pete, working through the alphabet again. Saw an RS2 went for 70,000 pounds earlier this week in uk, so no chance of me buying one of those. Now we need a new thread and some pictures!

    Go to your local hydraulic hose guy and ask what they can do. Even better if you can find someone who does a lot of automotive work. Nothing is impossible but you may need to pay for quite a few...

    Some brands have a plastic impeller and the word is to stay clear of those. You get OE from Audi, OEM from the manufacturer of the audi parts without the audi logo and then the rest. Depending on the...

    Guys, congrats on some interesting cars. Parts can be available and then they dry up and reappear. I personally haven't found any local source where you can get the whole range of parts from one shop...

    Don't count on your VIN meaning much, it isn't a US delivered car. Take a slight pause, get to know your car and it's configuration thoroughly before placing your order, it's on you to get the order...

    Eddie, it's an open ended question. There are a lot of high mileage cars around the world running probably better than those that get only a little use. After that it all depends............ the...

    First thing, if these people have actually seen the tyre, then run a mile, that is totally unacceptable from any shop. How about we use some brain power here. Looking at the photo, the tyre wear is...

    Patently obvious that you have an interference, probably with the suspension upright. This isn't tyre wear in the normal sense, rather there is a mismatch betwen your wheel and tyre spec and your...

    I'm trying liqui moly 4100 5w-40 which is the spec for the RS6. Seems OK, no comments either way atm. Most comments about oil brand and grade are from enthusiastic users who don't have any quals that...

    No, it won't break the bank, but I will have to pay twice for quality coolant which as we all know isn't cheap. The big deal is every buyer on here stumps up with no guarantee that they will ever...

    Yep, that nut requires either a special deep ring spanner or a set of hollow sockets with handle. Got both so it was never an issue but it would be a real test of your patience if you didn't. You...

    No, I ended up using Bilstein. I used Bilstein on my RS4 and very happy with that. Was going to try Koni on the RS6 just as a comparison but they were unavailable so bought the Bilsteins. Super happy...

    A TT850 on a 2.5 ltr motor, you could roll a fag or have a meal while waiting for it to spool up. These cars are high speed Bahnstormers, you'll never see the top end in Aus and ruin the mid range...

    All the RS6 versions are complex in a way. Most have minimal miles up so you would need the worst type of Monday-Friday car to even think about engine work and needing a spare. No matter what the...
