More praise for Chris Knott...

"Big thanks to CKI - Jack and Ian beat my renewal and provided excellent service! RS3 premiums sure have gone up this year!" Tom19, Audi-Sport.net

"I have to say that I've been using Chris Knott Insurance for about 5 years now and they've always been really good and come back each year with a competitive price (not like some insurers who increased by 20% each year). 10/10 to Chris Knott Smile" Hipstar, TT Forum

"Really professional and helpful service finding me a good deal and tailored to my specific requirements. Thank you Chris Knott - I will always keep returning and recommending as long as I am looked after." Mr Christopher Hinchliffe, Trustpilot

"Great prices and friendly staff." Robert Wilson, Trustpilot

"From start to finish, Chris Knott Insurance couldnt have been more helpful. Special thanks to Jessica, who explained everything in plain English with no insurance gobbledygook. 5 stars!" Mr Greg Dick, Trustpilot
Howdy all!

Bit of a long shot given the reduced traffic on here, but does anyone have a part number or specification to enable me to get some terminals for the 55pin plug that connects to the ecu?

I'm belatedly trying to follow Bladerunners instructions for TDI cruise control retrofit, but I'm having issues finding all the parts I think I'll need.

Any hints or tips folks?

Hi,

the video gives you a step-by-step instructions for changing the timing belt on the Audi S2 with the 3B engine. Due to the length of the 5 cylinder in-line engine and all the additional components of the turbo engine it is relatively tight in the engine bay. Thus it needs most parts of the front of the vehicle dismantled to gain access to the front of the engine. All of this work is demonstrated screw by screw.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2A3PwDVOxI

The video has a German soundtrack, but English subtitles are added to YouTube.

Enjoy it,

Jrgen

Customer feedback about club specialist Chris Knott

"Great staff, a big help and an excellent saving." Tony, Trustpilot

"I got mine insured through Chris Knott when I switched to my Mk4. Completely standard, no mods, they beat the best quote I could find online." alexp999, Focus ST Owners Club

"Well went with Chris Knott last year after getting a great quote. Renewal came round again so was expecting to have to move again to achieve a good price. Renewal quote came through from Chris Knott and had not gone up but stayed about the same. Found a cheaper alternate quote and they matched it without any trouble. So another year with Chris Knott. Great customer service." BMW Chaz, BimmerForums

"Excellent response and good price and cover. Thanks" Les, Trustpilot

"My family has been with Chris Knott for 20+ years. Over the past year Chris Knott's staff have been extremely helpful to me in having to change the various insurances we had following a change in my circumstances." Miss J Black, Trustpilot


Rated 'Excellent' on Trustpilot 4.8/5 - https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/chrisknott.co.uk
rear bearings are 75mm. Same as front wheel bearings on some models but not yours which has 82mm front bearings

You need a press to fit them
Improvements to help more members save money

So, Chris Knotts haven't been standing still these last few months. In fact, we've expanded our panel of insurers - meaning we can now quote for more members.

Along with some postcode and no claims bonus relaxations, there's now an even longer list of acceptable mods (NO limit on BHP with this new insurer for example).

On top of that, there are some really low quotes out there at the moment (including with these companies we use) so make sure you ask us to find you the quotes that you just can't get through a comparison site - whether your car is stock or modified.

See how much you could save by calling Chris Knott Insurance on 0800 917 2274.

Or submit brief details online and we'll call you for the rest:
https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/carquote

We look forward to helping you find the best deal this year.

Feedback

"Always perfect. Came back from my other car insurance. Andy H is great. Will be missed when he leaves. Keep safe and take care." Simon Thompson, Trustpilot

"Really helpful staff. Much better prices than comparison sites. Hopefully they'll be able to help out next year too." Mr Jackson, Trustpilot

"So very refreshing to be treated like an individual and not feel like you are talking to someone in a vast call centre who is hurriedly reading off a screen unable to deviate from set procedures. I usually hate the whole getting quotes and renewing insurance but this time it was painless and actually enjoyable. Thank you." Mrs H, Trustpilot

"Good customer service when setting up new car insurance. Willing to price match and or beat quote. So far so good!" Laura Hughes, Trustpilot

"Had a small carpark dent last year and my renewal quote with Mazda insurance doubled this year so had to try searching for a better price. I had already had gap cover with Chris Knott so called them for a quote. Had a much better offer which I accepted with everything handled smoothly and had my documents emailed promptly. Service has been great so far even with the virus problems which do not seem to bother Chris Knott insurance much." Leighton, Trustpilot
Hi,

No gimmicks or competitions this month, as we don't want you to lose sight of the real reason you should try us for your car insurance...

If you like a person-to-person service that also offers competitive quotes for car club members and enthusiasts, you should be talking to us.

You can call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 or complete brief contact details at the link and we'll aim to be your best option this year.

https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/carquote/?ref=61

Just a quick question to help us plan for our new website coming soon... We can't offer a full online quote service as our quotes are bespoke but if we made the quote form longer so we could gather the details we need to email/phone back with a quote would you prefer that to the short form where we have to call you for the remaining details? There'd still be an element of human contact so either of us can ask questions or seek clarity and we'll always be available by phone, just as now.

Let me know if you'd value it and use it. Thanks.

best,
Nick

"Easy to get cover. Matched a similar renewal quote I received and covered my modifications with no quibbles" Sam, Trustpilot

"I have bought motor insurance through Chris Knott for many years - originally introduced by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. I have used other brokers, but always found CK to be best on price, service and honesty." Andrew Brown, Trustpilot

"I went with CK 10 days ago, they easily beat the A********** renewal and subsequent quotes I had with an equivalent policy." Coldel, VX220.org
Is there someone who can suggest a place where I can find a rear subframe for my car?
There is one for sale on eBay but it is in poor condition, I am looking on the net but so far no luck, Audi Tradition stopped offering them in 2010. I am somewhat concerned.
Thanks. Crying or Very sad

Feedback from happy customers

"Fast, efficient, friendly service." Mr Bevan Muston, Trustpilot

"Easy to deal with, fast on the paperwork, excellent value." Nick Shorey, Trustpilot

"In comparing quotes, staff were extremely helpful and the price quoted was considerably less than my previous insurer. Thank you all for your professionalism working from home in these crisis times." Patricia Williams, Trustpilot

"A great insurance company - will beat or match any quote you get, they've beaten mine saving me around 75. However, the policy they gave had alot more with it as extras and great customer service - thanks again Chris Knott, thanks to Kim for all her help. Also during Covid 19 they lowered my deposit which was so helpful." Daniel Moreton, Trustpilot

"Best quote for my replacement Hyundai Coupe. Efficient and friendly even in these lockdown times." John Stephenson, Trustpilot
The 21 day insurance myth

Hi,

There's a partial myth going round that the best time to buy your car insurance is 21 days before expiry.

I say partial because while it may be true with some of the comparison sites (who'll likely increase your quote if you buy close to expiry), there are some other quality providers that don't adopt these tactics or penalise you for leaving the purchase a little late.

With Chris Knott's offering to car clubs and enthusiast groups, it doesn't matter whether you buy 21 days before or at the last minute. Our quotes are valid for 30 days, so if you get a Chris Knott quote 21 days early we'll honour that price right up to your renewal date as long as nothing has changed.

Because we factor your best alternative quote into the process you can even call us the day before expiry and we'll use your lowest quote from the last 30 days as the benchmark to beat (subject to seeing proof).

So don't just accept a high quote because you've left it a bit late and think you're out of options - give Chris Knott a call.

You can request a quote callback at:
https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/carquote/?ref=61

or call us when you're ready to go through the quote:
