Audi – Progress Update 1

Audi from back

Hi All,

Just a little update on the Audi A8.

I’ve been pretty busy with the motor, doing a lot of work myself. I’ve so far completed the following tasks.

  • Fixed central locking pump – bought repair kit from eBay (here)
  • Unblocked rain water drain at front causing possible flooding over fuse box in passenger footwell.
  • Fixed passenger front speakers (rain water corroded connector, see vid)
  • Debadged all but the Audi badge on rear
  • Fitted rubber car mats
  • Replaced rear number plate

Upcoming plans:

  • Rolling road at end of March to ascertain current power (factory was 300BHP)
  • K&N panel filter ready to fit
  • Longlife exhaust being fitted at Herts Auto Tek on 4th April
  • Remap scheduled for May (+16BHP, and plenty of torque)
  • Maybe uprated fuel pumps etc.

I aim to make 330BHP (in line with the S8 of similar year). We’ll see.
