    Ive been looking at new tyres and playing with increasing the sidewall and comfort!

    OEM : 205/65 x 15 = 133mm sidewall, standard OEM tyre size. 2034mm circumference / 791 revs per mile.
    A8 : 235/35 x 19 = 82mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 60 km/h / 2033mm / 792 revs per mile.

    The below sizes stay within 5% of the original circumference. Its a ball ache working through the options so I posted what I'd done to date.
    Check your rim width to make sure you're happy they fit and shaped to your liking!

    205/45 x 18 = 92mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 59.5 km/h. 798 revs per mile.
    205/50 x 18 = 103mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 61.4 km/h. 774 revs per mile.
    215/45 x 18 = 97mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 60.3 km/h. 787 revs per mile.
    215/50 x 18 = 108mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 62.3 km/h. 762 revs per mile.
    225/45 x 18 = 101mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 61.1 km/h. 777 revs per mile.
    225/50 x 18 = 113mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 63.2 km/h. 751 revs per mile +5%
    235/35 x 18 = 82mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 57.6 km/h. 824 revs per mile.-4%
    235/40 x 18 = 94mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 59.8 km/h. 794 revs per mile.
    235/45 x 18 = 106mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 62.0 km/h. 766 revs per mile.
    235/45 x 18 = 106mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 62.0 km/h. 766 revs per mile.
    245/35 x 18 = 86mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 58.3 km/h. 815 revs per mile.
    245/40 x 18 = 98mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 60.5 km/h. 784 revs per mile.
    245/45 x 18 = 110mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 62.8 km/h. 756 revs per mile.
    255/40 x 18 = 102mm sidewall, When speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 61.3 km/h. 775 revs per mile.

    What do you reckon to these new door cill plates? Got some paintwork to do in the Spring and found these stainless protectors for £4 in the bargain bucket!

    And a Samco 80mm 45deg hose. Using 80mm on the turbo inlet currently. Bargain.

    Something else I noticed in the shop was a set of opened VW Touareg Stainless/Brass Brakelines for £19 made by a German outfit call Fischer Hydraulik looked like the 2 banjos had been nicked/borrowed as the copper washers were still visible. So f'it I'll make it work & coughed up. Now I'm back looks like the Toerag uses the same M10x1 fittings but the hoses are slightly longer (30mm front, rears are long so might have to improvise and loose some hard pipework!). Quick email to customer services at FH to check the banjo & specs and I should have my TUV tested hoses (albeit not red) for the van sorted for £26 & an email.

    Where did you get them from Rob? It's a conversion I've had on the back burner for a few years now. I've got Audi tt calipers, just need the discs.

    First purchase with Autodoc.co.uk Roy. Had to wait a few days but turned up fine. These are a non-UV coated disk too (could be a reason for them being cheaper) the UV coated end .11 rather than .10. I put them in my basket whilst researching disks generally (site good for tracking alternatives) and got an email increasing the discount the front page offered.

    Will the 312mm TT calipers work (excuse my ignorance) with the existing carrier or TT carrier? T4 has 120mm centres.

    I've only done a quick check with the mk1 eyeball but they seem to line up OK
