    Skirting Board! help me match what I have

    Thanks, but that's not the right stuff. As I mentioned the rounded edge of the Wickes (and most online stores I've seen) stuff is much more shallow and doesn't match the profile of what I already have

    Skirting Board! help me match what I have

    Hey Guys So, I'm in need of a bit of skirting to finish off a new stud wall that's now dividing a large cupboard up. The whole house (including two of the existing walls of the cupboard) uses old bullnose style skirting. Wickes and other places online do sell this in MDF at the right...

    Classic Car Owners

    You gotta love a bloppy, lumpy yank V8 :) that looks very similar to the 302 (5.0) V8 in my Mustang above. Given the age it's probably the same. I assume yours is pre-smog pump?

    Classic Car Owners

    Here's my 1965 Ford Mustang, 4-speed manual with 302 V8. Originally a 289 A-Code V8 but at some point in it's life around the early 90's it got a rebuilt 67' 302 from a Ford Fairlane after the car sat for a number of years. 1-owner from new (traded in a Chevy Nova for it in 65!) till it made...

    Audi Approved Used - Negotiating

    haha completely agree! For me it was just the way the sales guy acted...very abrupt and like he couldn't be bothered to tolerate me any longer.

    Audi Approved Used - Negotiating

    Bought a 17-plate S4 Avant days before lockdown and got the price I had in mind for a PCP deal at Nottingham Audi. They gave me a very reasonable trade in price for my Golf R32 given it's age and mileage which helped, I offered to pay a slightly higher deposit to show I was serious (£1000 rather...

    Audi owners in here!

    A number of posts back I was complaining about the drone of my B9 S4 during sensible driving. Turns out Audi have sold me a 3-year old approved used car that has had a resonator delete done on it which no one noticed during the 149-point check list or pre-sale prep. We only know because the car...

    Switching from OLED to Projection.. anyone done it?

    I've pretty much made up my mind to do the opposite. I'll be going from an 84" projector screen to a 65" OLED. Considered 77" but not sure I can justify the cost. Had projectors of varying sizes for so many years that I'm very out of touch with TV technology and while I do love the big screen...

    Podcast app for Google Home

    I've been a big user of the Apple Podcasts app for years now, but as I integrate more of my home into Google Home I'm struggling to find an easy way of playing my podcasts on Google Home devices and potentially controlling them with Google Home voice commands. The main issue is, I want to...

    that’s not the MMI that I have unfortunately This is the one in my car: https://www.pdf-archive.com/2016/09/01/a4-b9-owners-manual/a4-b9-owners-manual.pdf I did pour through the manual but couldn’t see anything specifically to do with my query. There are left and right control buttons either...

    I can’t find this option anywhere in the menu. You sure this is for a B9? When I press the Bottom left “Control” button the only options I get are to change the source/view. There isn’t anything labelled RPT

    Audi owners in here!

    I’ve just loaded up an SD card with a copy of all of my music with the following folder structure: artist/album/song. This is being using in an S4 B9. The MMI sees the SD card and plays back all my music perfectly but What’s irking me is that after playback of a folder has done, it just repeats...

    Audi owners in here!

    Just had an email with a link to their website. Put all the details in and it gives you a quote. It says that discounts have been applied....but who knows whether there is any or not. As far as I was concerned, £550 wasn't bad for a comprehensive warranty on the S4 given how expensive it could...

    My B9 S4 Avant was also about £550 for its warranty extension

    Hah, learn something new everyday! OK so pretty sure it's not the Soundaktor I'm hearing based on that video as it happens in all drive select modes but I do need to test it in individual where I have more control over it. I was considering using some dynamat underneath a boot liner/protector...

    5-pot's definitely help refine and even out the firing order compared to a 4-pot which I'd expect gives a bit of an extra growl to the exhaust but yeah, it just doesn't do it for me. Fully agree on the muted sound of the V6 in the S4/S5. I test drove an S5 before buying the S4 and yeah, nice...

    Audi owners in here!

    I didn't think the B9's had a soundaktor like the B8's did, e.g. I didn't think it pumped fake noise through the speakers? I know it's got flaps in the exhaust system that open/close depending on rev's. The droning sounds like it comes from the boot area and always between 1500-2000rpm. I test...

    Audi owners in here!

    Maybe it's just me but I find most of these Audi exhaust notes quite dull :( That TTRS definitely has a better sound to it. The exhaust note of my B9 S4 Avant is my least favourite part of that car. When driven normally, it drones like hell between 1500-2000rpm which makes me drive strategically...

    OcUK's #1 Driving Song - Stage 1: The Entries **CLOSING MIDNIGHT**

    Very much depends on where I'm driving and what car I'm driving at the time as to what song I want on in the background, e.g. every time I get in my '65 Mustang I just want to listed to classic rock combined with a lovely V8 burble as the soundtrack while cruising (effectively anything from the...
