Common failure on Audi, replacement fuse box.
2012 Audi Q7 with some AC faults, blowing hot air on one side in the rear. Big AC unit in the left rear of the car.
Coming up to our 3rd year anniversary as the new owners in Wellington and we are looking to upgrade/add on to our courtesy cars. With a view to up-spec an already very cool car to showcase some of the things we like to do and certainly the types of cars we enjoy seeing through the workshop. Its a tough decision to know what that car might be and we still aren’t sold on this one yet, however it is a great looking car that is well appointed from the factory, the 2.0 TFSI engine poking out 200 Hp with a DSG S-Tronic gearbox behind it, driving power to 4 wheels, I’m excited.
This pics represents one that’s already been modded, so you get the idea of where this is heading.. We don’t have an unlimited budget, so want to have something that’s reasonably priced from the start, and for an additional $4-5000 can be turned into something very exciting… Is the TT it??
What we might get that’s suits the budget could be: Remap, miltek exhaust and intake mods, some wrapping, some tinting and some lowering, all of which will be done on site…
Our other project is to retire our old P38 Range rover to a new home and get into a later Land Rover Discovery 2.7TD. We see this as a great promotional vehicle for our Bluefin/Superchips product as a demonstrator, with a stage 1 tune boasting an additional 100NM of torque, as well as up to 10% in fuel saving when driven for economy. Also looking to deck out with Rhino-Rack gear so we have it available to show off and demo as needed. We love our old P38 Range Rover but I think its time to upgrade…, again, is this the vehicle we go for, nothing is set in stone, that’s why its a ‘wish list’.
Great start to the year with some lovely cars in … Here’s a sample of some of our visitors this week
2009 Jaguar XK SALOON
2002 Jaguar XKR8

Audi Q7 gets a remap.

See Below comments from Peter at Bluefin/Superchips on the feedback and gains we get from a remap on the Q7.
116NM gain is impressive
Sample pic as we did our Q7 out of town
We do alot of Audi Q7 4.2V8s as they respond so well to being Superchipped. You will get alot better throttle response, low down and midrange torque and the car will pull all the way to the red line. Many owners report anything up to 10% saving on fuel as well, due to the fact there is less gear changing. And the annoying lag that they have at low revs also disappears. With the 4.2V8 Q7 the gains are as follows;
Audi Q7 4.2 V8 TDI (340PS)
Engine type : Turbo-Diesel
Engine size : 4134 cm3
Cylinders : 8
Original bhp : 335 (252kW)
Original nm : 760
BHP increase : 45 (34kW)
NM gain : 116
Speed Limit Removal : Not Available
