  1. Did you ever find a solution for this pal, i have stainless dishes which i have just curbed today, i clipped a curb quite hard and the damage is only minimal, i did this with my previous aluminum dishes and they ended up cracked with a big dent in them, which led me on to buying stainless dishes, the stainless are obviously alot stronger than my previous dishes but have still sustained some damage, Hope some one can help on here, Here are a few pics of the damage to mine to give people an idea of what its like http://i873.photobucket.com/albums/ab294/Gtipluc/b6b68890.jpg http://i873.photobucket.com/albums/ab294/Gtipluc/96002f5b.jpg Cheers luc

  4. 1.8 20v turbo engine

    im from halifax, i thought the turbo would come with the engine? so it is possible to use any 1.8 20v turbo engine then? cheers
  5. 1.8 20v turbo engine

    Ah right i didnt think there was any differene in all the 1.8 turbo engines apart from turbo and gearboxes, so could a leon cupra 225 engine not be used? It has to be from a passat or a4 the same age but it doesnt matter weather its from a quattro or 4motion? Cheers luc
  6. 1.8 20v turbo engine

    Right i have a mate who has an audi a4 1.8 t quattro y reg 2001, its been to the garage and it needs the cylinder head and turbo replacing at a cost of around £2500, so the garage has suggested it might be cheaper to buy a new engine, but hes been told hes got to look specifically for an engine thats from a quattro, but i cant see why, so my question is can he buy a non quattro 1.8turbo engine and have that fitted? His gearbox out of the car is fine, so why has he been told o get a engine thats come out of a quattro? Please shed some light on this, thanks luc

  12. Knocking noise

    Forget that what i said earlier mate, just had a look and there no chassis notch on the car dispite the fact they have said they were doing it, i remeber speaking to them on the phone, and havair saying we have just got the chassis notch to do and that it the cars done then hub, fobs off or what?
