    Not on Social media of any type so without the Forums, life would be very different. There is a world of history for those with the time and inclination to chase it up. Amazing how a cross section of...

    Might not have been the smartest advertising attempt when it opened up some alternatives available locally. All because we couldn't resist having a chat and stealing the post. Naughty.

    I really believe that is what they rely on. There was talk some time ago about Audi just confiscating your car in the B5 A4 airbag saga. Really feel for you with the family situation to boot....

    I'm not a solicitor so this is just a view from the sidelines. Hard to believe that someone can take your property without permission. I expect they rely on you not being willing to test the case....

    Agreed, There just isn't enough damage to move from that to a vanilla car. Worth asking if you take the money, what the buy back would be. Looks to me like the car in parts would bring the payout...

    They dropped off my list as side entry was a must. When it is around zero in mid winter, opening the garage door to allow you to roll under the car isn't on the cards. Not enough end room in my...

    I looked at that. I had an issue with needing the car to lift straight up rather than in an arc. Sometimes first world problems, but neat when you can get something that meets all your picky...

    Voila! I have an RSJ over the car so anything more than an 800mm high lift is wasted.

    At ém Dingah. You'd better watch out or people might start calling you sensible. On the other note, been in the car and it's all that Dingah says. You could do worse but unlikely to do better.

    Nice. I went another way with a totally portable hoist due to the possibility of moving house and also getting the right concrete floor specs for a two post unit. I would be more than happy to have a...

    Most mechanics won't have VAG friendly scan tools if they only see one every so often. VCDS is the gold standard if you aren't a factory workshop and the other options vary from good to awful. It is...

    Echo Alister's comments. It's not like the old days with a "tune" required every service. There is very little that you can do to muck it up. The very first thing is a fault code scan. Then if you...

    Why is it so cheap?. It is about 1/3 the rrp (other than postage to be added). The cable is the new version and not restricted in terms of the software, you just download the latest for free. It is...

    The points jnrdavo raised are all important and cross over many models, not just the RS5. DRC is a great idea but never reached viability in practice. Very expensive and prone to problems. If you...

    I can't offer hands on advice on the RS5 specifically but I would suggest that you need access to a mechanic who has experience with RS versions. I have two earlier RS and very few really know the...

    Should cost you in the order of AUD $520 inc GST and Taxes. I'd try local VW first. I have been a big OS buyer over the years but now it really pays to check out prices at home first. Things like an...
