    Any Audi enthusiasts in Tassie?

    I see from the threads someone tried to start a club in Tas back in 2016. Did it ever get off the ground? Are there any members in the Apple Isle?

    Reason I ask is I had a bit of trouble with my...

    I found out "offset" is the distance between the inner side of the disc and the top of the hat/bell, not merely the height of the hat as I earlier thought. So the easy way to do it without going to...

    The other thought I've had is that it should be safe to have slightly MORE offset as this will move the wheel away from the caliper. Of course, too much and I might get into issues of tyre rubbing...

    Yeah - that's the number I came up with too! However, if the local supplier has more than one model on his shelf, with different offsets, he will still want to know what the hat height is.

    Thanks Chris! I've located a pair of 312 x 25 rotors on the shelf just down the street. However, what I don't know is the rotor offset (which I assume is the same as 'hat height'?) Apparently...

    A8 rotors for A4??

    Hi all

    I had a pair of A8 rotors fitted to the front of my 2000 (b5) 1.8 TQ many years ago. From memory, these measured 312mm diameter. They required TT calipers, but used stock A4 pads (I use...

    Pads for b5 A4?

    Hi all
    Yeah, it's been a while. This doesn't mean I have no problems to report, only that I've been getting on top of them lately. Or maybe driving slower. Not.

    TT Weird Happenings #2,178

    Yeah you’re quite right Tony. I don’t imagine for a minute any Audi dealer is going to pull out ANY sensor and try and test it. He’ll just replace it, road test the car, and if that doesn’t fix it...

    Testing Coolant Temperature Sensor

    Does anyone have a table of expected resistance at given temperatures for the CTS on a TT 225? I'm guessing they will all be pretty much the same but can supply a part number if necessary.
