R8 Mag Ride - can I replace a single failed shock?

Hi, looking for a bit of advice. I have a v10, on which the front two shocks are leaking/weeping oil. The car is under an Audi extended warranty.

Re: sideways

Properly broadsided it 3 times. 2 in the wet and 1 in the snow (summer tyres). All with the TC off. I drove around most of last winter with the TC off, it drove me insane otherwise. The quattro is ahhh-mazing if you stay committed and keep the power smooth and the revs away from anything going into...

Re: 0-60 time

Evo mag recorded 0-60 in 4.8, but that seemed a slow time to me.

Also, all those moaning about the guy driving to 60 with one hand, get a life. 4wd car and if you can't drive it to 60 with one hand you need to go back to driving school :rant:

What oil?

Hi, can someone tell me what grade of oil is recommended for a tuned VAG 1.8T tuned (to around 320bhp) engine please?

That was never the intention, but on reflection, I take your point. So I have asked the mods to remove my post.

Depends on what you want out of the car. The M5 (assuming an E39) is more fun to drive in my view, but the RS6 is quicker and you can exploit the power more of the time. Re faults, had mine a couple of years ago and nothing of note.

Guys, I filled it up!

Any amount of fuel is not turning the light off and barely moves the needle.

Fuel light on constantly

The fuel light came on about a week ago and I topped her up, but the light remains and the gague is reading v low and it's gradually been getting lower ie, it's not stuck on zero.

Any ideas what it could be? Fuse or something that measures the level of fuel in the tank?

Thanks
