Audi A5 wheel bearing

We recently worked on this 3.0tdi Audi A5 which required an inspection. The owner had just purchased the car and wanted to know more about any issues and historic work which may have been carried out.
The car urgently required a wheel bearing and a replacement battery. We have now ensured the car is now safe to drive. Another happy customer!

Audi A6 C7 MMI Repair

We recently diagnosed and repaired a MMI system on a 2014 Audi A6.


The owner reported that the MMI system did not work. Once we removed the system we noticed that the wiring from the MMI sceen had been cut by the open/close mechanism of the flip out screen.

This was due to a poor previous repair job.

The wires should have been tied together using the original Audi wiring route. Once we repaired the loom the system was fully functional. Audi quoted over £2000 (+VAT) to diagnose and repair this! Another happy customer! #audi #a6 #a6oc

Golf 7.5 Dynamic Rear lights

We picked up these BRAND NEW facelift lights before we picked our MK7 Golf R up!

Probably one of the first in the UK (in March 2017), with the Mk7.5 being 6 months old, the plug and play retrofit adaptors have been produced by Audiamant (other manufacturers are now finally available!)

Certainly makes our Golf R look modern with these little touches!


Ricky’s 25th Anniversary 

We visited @ricky_grande last night to enable some extras on his newly acquired Mk4 anniversary 1.8T. We enabled autowindows, miles to empty, lit needles and also scanned the car for faults. Cannot wait to see what he and the other two anniversarys in Rickys squad has in store for #worthersee2k17 … convoy from London anyone ?

Cluster repair. Reading..

Today we travelled to Reading where the owner of this rare AUQ engined Bora (1/23) required an instrument cluster swap. He dropped the car off to a “VAG specialist” in Maidenhead who spent two days attempting to carry out the dash swap and failing. The customer had a mission of picking his car up as he was miles away. Eventually he found our contact details. Upon arrival, we noticed the replacement cluster did not want to pair to the immobiliser. We discovered that the garage had corrupted the EEPROM (or software) on the clocks. Luckily we repaired the software and successfully carried out the swap. We made it look easy however this procedure could essentially “brick” the clocks. We enabled a few extras. Another very happy customer !

Swindon Mk4 cluster swap. 

Today we visited the owner of a Mk4 V6 4motion in Swindon who was in a desperate situation. After sending his dash clocks to one of the major cluster specialists for repair, they came back in a worse state than before. The car was unable to start and the situation was now severe. The customer luckily found us via our social media platforms and we supplied and coded some tasty bora sport clocks. We enabled some extras. The customer was over the moon. Another very happy customer!

Audi A6.. Non starter!

A late night for us  We traveled to Croydon to diagnose an Audi A6 2.5tdi which did not start.

When we attempted to diagnose the car, we discovered that we could not connect to any of the control modules with VCDS (VAGCOM)


After stripping most of the cars interior and checking the wiring diagram, we discovered the CAN system was corrupted due to a faulty gearbox ECU module. What most garages would spend days diagnosing we did in around an hour. We pointed the customer in the right direction as some local garages advised it may be the immobiliser or starter motor!

Another happy customer!

A VW is for life… !!!

The owner of this fully loaded MK5 Golf GTI came to see us for a diagnostics and wanted us to test drive his car.
We were impressed to see this car covered almost 160,000 miles and still drove like it did less than half!


We discovered a few bits which needed looking at including a service.

Another happy (and regular) customer!
