    Hi looking through here you seem to know alot about the a2's i have a 2004 1.6fsi ive just had the head skimmed valves reseated and ports cleaned. Went to start rebuilding it and the lower intake manifold has flaps connected to a vacumm unit with a small plastic cam looking thing connecting them. The cam is broken is this a replacable part? If so any ideas where to get one from? Many thanks conrad

    Hi there! I noticed your post on the selling forum. Is the handbrake / storage unit still available? If so, is it possible that you ship it to me? I live in Finland. I can transfer payment to you for example by paypal if that's ok? Can you send me email answer straight to my email: thank you for your answer!

    Hello Sarge, I bought a red 1.4se. It is ok. The EPC light is on. I have bought a new brake light switch & I'm going to try to fit it.
    Would you be able to scan for the fault code please? To be sure it is this switch. I work in Woodford,
    Your car looks very cool BTW
    Kind regards , Ian
