Re: Airbag Fault - code 19

I had a problem with an airbag light a while back which despite everything I did I couldn't get it to turn off. It turned out to be a burnt circuit board behind the digital display that caused the issue. Cost me about 170 euros to get it sorted by a specialist auto electrician. I'm not saying this i...

Re: Is the RX-9 going to happen?

We can chat til the cows come home but unless they can make it so it passes all the relevant regs it's never going to happen and even if it did pass said regs it will still need to be economical and reliable for people to even consider it and let's be honest the terms ' economical' and ' reliable' a...

Re: How much is it worth?

I'll give you an honest answer, if it's HP you're after then I wouldn't bother. You'll be lucky to see 1 yes ONE HP increase. Mate of mine bought one for his 8 ( brand new) and he got zero increase, nothing, nada, said it was a total waste of money and I agree with him. If on the other hand you're a...

Re: Suggestions please

Not entirely surprised at that because R3 cards will be rarer,keep on him though I'm sure he'll come good.

You could try an ex member here called nuttiechappie too,drop him a PM,he's also a breaker and he may have what you're looking for,worth a shot ;)

Whatever they were doing it's not even a neat cut, if it was a lock issue why didn't they just pop the door card off and go at it that way?

I suspect alcohol and a dare were involved here :lol:

Re: PistonHeads Shed of the Week - Guess?

The 8 will never rise in value really and will never go the way of the FD.The 7 is an iconic car and values have literally shot up in the past few years. The 8 whilst being a cool car,especially the R3 ( I'm biased obvs ) just wont see an increase in values to an extent that you would keep one as an...

Re: 3rd gear pop-out

Mine suffers from it occassionaly but it's not too bad.In fairness theres 220000KMS on the box but it's still fine.If I keep my hand on the shifter whilst she's in third it doesn't pop out.
