The system is very well made and looks lovely (although you would have to crawl under the car to truly appreciate this ! ) it has a tail pipe exit finisher which looks good ,the only little gripe was that i needed to get an exhaust clamp (available from a Kwik Fit for the princely sum of a

    Hi Everyone

    Was that a Citroen BX 16v by any chance ? i had one of those and have to say apart from being totally unreliable ,went like bullet up a weasel ,it could upset alot of cars from the lights and handling wasnt too bad either.........and not too good either, suspension was hydraulic nuff said ! It had the same engine as the old Pegeout M16 (405 ) them were the days ! Nick s4s

  7. Hi Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the Larini system? I was thinking about a dual exit Sports 'de-cated' system for my 1995 S4s? Are they really noisey or ok to live with (dont want to p*** the neighbours off too much) Cheers Nick S4s

  12. Hi According to my manual and my car(1995 S4s) the heaters are controlled by vacum which is a complete pain in the arse to get at but to simply check that the valves are working check that the vacum pipes are connected to the valves ,when i had my alarm installed ,the fitter(use the term "fitter" very loosely) he had disconnected two of the pipes to the valves(pulling cable bundles through) thus no flaps had any command to open/close.i gained access to mine through the drivers footwell with a good inspection light and a fine pair of pin nose pliers (i have lost my radio removal tools other wise removing radio to gain access may help a tadge)if you turn your ingnition "on" you will hear your vacum pump running after a few seconds it should stop.........if it doesn"t stick your head under the dash and listen for a hissing noise ........simple have plentifull supply of food and water and should only take all day !or get your Missus to try to do it small hands get in all the awkward places. Nick S4s

Hi Keith When are you getting the Abs light? after how long driving? is it flashing or steady?does it come on just after a brake application?did you loose fluid when changing your pads? are you loosing your brakes completely? can you hear your pump running after 5 pumps? i'm near Deby if you want a second opinion.

  19. I use Autoglym polish and have just bought one of the new Flash Car Cleaner guns they been advertising on tv recently, and i have got to say it works really bloody well i live in a very hard water area and the dry mode works a treat no water stains and still leaves the Autoglm polish on ,just removes the dirt ! Makes a change to find something that has been advertised on tv and ACTUALLY works as 'advertised' ! ! :-) Halfrauds
  20. Well after many hours of trying finally managed to upload pics of car on to garage site. Thanks to all for help. The low loader one always bring a smile ...............we have all been there. Cheers Nick S4s

  22. If i were you i would get someone out to do the job properly as you may have a leak(hence why it needs refilling) this way the guy will vac the system down and find the leak before wasting money just refilling it only for it to leak again,mine has a dye in the system so that when it leaks you can actually see where it has leaked from.Especially if you havnt used the ac much during the winter the seals tend to shrink and let the gas leak past .
