Tinting the A4 fog lights

03 March 2014 The A4 was dropped off at the bodyshop this morning and I won't see it again for a week while the bumpers and lots of panels are given fresh coats of Audi Akoya Silver. Wanting to have everything ready for…

Tail light lens tinting

10 February 2014 Getting the little jobs tied up while I wait for the A4 to go into the bodyshop, this weekend was tinting the tail lights. I didn't want to completely black out each one, the indicator lines meet the line across…

A4/S4 Headlight tinting experiments

19 January 2014 My S4 headlight lenses could do with a bit of buffing as they're looking little cloudy, but for the time being I thought I'd try tinting them as I had some stuff laying around. So I had a can of…

Retrofit OEM B6 S4 Xenon headlights into A4

14 January 2014 Finally a nice easy little job! Turns out the OEM S4 Xenon headlights are a simpleĀ (almost) plug and play upgrade, even if coming from regular A4 halogens. The plugs/connectors are the same, no VCDS coding required, no wiring. Just four…

The Audi, Android, Bluetooth, iPod dock, OEM radio Fiasco

17 December 2013 You can connect an android phone to your audi factory radio, you just have to go against everything you (as an android phone owner) believe in and buy an Apple product... sort of... Plans for the AV/Nav setup in the…

The A4’s alive!

07 December 2013 After all the seats went back in and the airbags were all hooked up it was safe to reconnect the battery and see if the A4 would come back to life. I'd been trickle charging the battery for around 18…

Deep cleaning Interior seats and carpet

02 December 2013 This isn't really my kind of thing, but 10 years and 100,000+ miles takes it's toll on a car's interior. To roll back some of the years I thought I'd have a go at deep cleaning the seats and carpet…

Preventing the common Audi A4/S4 Glovebox hinge break

30 November 2013 Broken glove box hinges are another common issue with the B6 A4 and S4 (maybe the B7 A4/S4 and RS4 too?), if yours is broken, it's broken, there's not much you can do about it. You either replace the whole…

Audi A4 Alcantara Dash (part 2)

24 November 2013 It's winter, I'm cold, and I want to be in my car with the heaters on maximum melting the ice on the road ahead from fifty feet away. I got a little step closer to this by finally getting the…

Lots of work, zero progress

18 November 2013 A really annoying weekend. While I'm still waiting for my airbag cover to come back from Plush I thought I'd drop my new rear springs in; a nice easy job for the weekend? Wrong. Half of Saturday was spent looking…

Audi A4 Alcantara Dash (part 1)

22 October 2013 I got my beautifully trimmed dash back from Luke at Plush Automotive on Friday night, along with my centre console. After months of searching for a good, reliable trimmer I'm really pleased I went to Plush as Luke's done a…

B6 Audi A4 armrest lid breakdown

12 October 2013 Us B6/B7 A4 owners are all aware our armrest lid catches are prone to breaking. Replacing this can be expensive, especially if it's trimmed in leather or Alcantara and I'd previously read the upholstered top of the lids couldn't be…
