Perhaps you would be better served by going in with some specific questions rather than allowing a salesman (who might be paid on commission) to drive your purchase. For example, when I search Tire Rack for 2005 Audio A4 Quattro (Base model), I see many tires ranging upwards from $265 USD. When I purchased my snow tires recently, I asked the shop that I ...

You can try replacing the Engine Crank Angle Sensor, which I believe is the one which is playing erratic. The sensor looks like this: So it is the one you are looking at in the picture. Who knows why it's gone bad, but with the code you mentioned, this seems like the culprit. This is a very good video on the replacement of the sensor. The only thing I'd ...

First of all, no worries on the bad English side of things ... even those of us who speak it have issues sometimes! '-) As to your issue(s) ... the first thing I do when I've encountered a large number of codes as you've gotten is clear the computer, then rerun the engine to see which codes persist. This gets you a lot closer to the root cause of the issue. ...

Audi generally relates to RWD or AWD cars with more power than the general drive around car that most people buy. Hence the most people recommend more expensive tyres to handle the extra power. However expensive tyres and cheap tyres can be bought for any car. It all depends on the specification you need. Best thing to do is search online with your tyre ...

As long as you fit the same size tyres, it doesn't matter all that much. "Premium" tyres don't make as much noise when you're cruising (e.g. the Geolandar tyres on the Subaru Forester is jokingly called the GeoSquealers) and they might offer a bit better handling in dry or wet conditions, but if you don't drive like a maniac, you probably won't notice the ...

The interior panels on the tailgate of your A3 simply pull off to expose the hose for the rear wash. You need to check the washer jet in the rear wiper arm is not blocked, and the hoses are intact as well. A blocked washer jet can dislodge the hose.

I'm thinking the issue is probably with the torque rod (on some cars called a dog bone) which keeps the engine/transmission in check during acceleration/deceleration. At least one end of the "dog bone" has a hard rubber piece which can wear out over time. Depending on how worn out it is, the noise will could be louder or not. You would probably notice it ...

The cause of your starting problem is unknown because the vehicle has not been checked-scanned- for it. A program like Torque Pro will offer you the ability to retrieve fault codes with your smart phone, but a code on its own is not the complete answer. The code should be considered as what the vehicles computer thinks is wrong. In very many instances the ...

If your rotors' wear surfaces are still smooth & flat & true, then keep the rotors and replace the pads alone. The dealer wants to replace the rotors because doing so eliminates one potential source of liability for them - the more they replace, the less their potential liability. If the wear surfaces are NOT still good, then they should be measured ...

Replacing rotors or drums every other time you replace the pads/shoes is crazy. For most daily drivers, that would be every year or every 2 years. Unless the vehicle is being used for something like a delivery service (IE, LOTS of miles with TONS and TONS of stops), there is no reason not to expect 50K-100K or even more from a pair of even stock or ...

I had a similar problem with my navara bakkie - appears it was the fuel filter allowing air into the system. Replaced this and changed the clamps on the fuel lines where they join the fuel filter. Seems to have worked.

Usually when I see multiple things going dead and the gauges stop working like you stated, the first thing I think of is some sort of grounding issue. Hard to diagnose ... even harder to track down.
