    If you're running a B5, the two things you need to know about even before remembering your rego number are the fault codes that the ECU and other control units log from time to time. Read by an OBD...

    Respectively disagree in these circumstances. Runs at 98% with the existing alternator so it seems. 100% apparently needs extra amps to keep the voltage up. How often / for how long does any engine...

    Always first question, what fault codes do you have and is your readiness 0000 0000? Do you now have a good battery (above 12.4V after any surface charge has dissipated). Checked all your fuses. i.e....

    May be just before the bottom but in a little while if you have a good one it should start to come up again. You'd need to be a bit special to take on a poor example. It was the bees knees when new...

    I may have thought that until I bought one and started learning all the little bits behind the scenes. You'd need some seriously deep pockets just for the parts, not the labour. Then when it's all...

    Welcome, there's a growing number of RS6 owners on here at the moment, although not that active. Post up a bit about your current car and maybe it'll chug things along.
