    I was about to swap to metal water pump, by my mechanic advised not to. Metal is supposed to last much longer, but if metal goes balls up,then you get metal pieces through your engine instead of plastic... I can see both points, so have stuck with metal. Sent from my SM-S926B using Tapatalk

    1.4tsfi HPFP Sensor issue

    With the car off and key removed, you should be able to remove the sensor. A small amount of fuel will come out, just put some rags around it prior to undoing. I've removed a fuel sensor on my S3 and it didn't spew much out. Sent from my SM-S926B using Tapatalk

    I thought I'd have to send off my old ones and they would cover them. But they actually find existing parts and recover (or remove?) them.. Lovely finish. I used fly designs AMS (https://www.facebook.com/flydesigns.poland/) for the trim, they are in Poland. I also used modified car show for...

    Back to the future. Go to overseas website for genuine audi car parts

    Depends on what you are after.. For general trim parts, I've been using RM parts in Latvia (depends on exchange rate and shipping). info@rmparts.lv For mechanical, I use my local independent, or vagparts.com.au

    Out with the old.... (Ok, I'm still keeping them!) and in with the new... Subtly different, white stitching to match the other new parts, and the logos in the middle. Does anybody 'scotch guard' their mats at all?

    Plastic Welding - Job well done!

    I had a couple of cracks/splits in my trim in the S3... let's just say that I can't name the person who took off the trim and did it poorly!! Anyway, I searched around and found it very hard to find, but found someone that was excellent. Cost me $300 all up, and you can hardly tell where the...
