    OPF RS3 Help

    I would check your exhaust valve plugs first on your car to see if its a 3pin or the newer 4pin type. Get your mate to send you a pic of the pin arrangement on his exhaust to see if they are compatible first.

    Good PPF company in London

    Dub customs in basildon seem to do good work. Topaz and nvn also look like they can do this. They have youtube channels so you can check out their work

    Annual polish

    Gave the car its annual polish. Used shine mates yellow foam pads and menzerna 2200 medium cut polish for a single pass single stage process. It refined quite nicely and although there are some slightly random scratches dotted here and there that I could have ago with a different combo, was...

    Any electricians on here? Need some advice

    0.6w x 25 lights gives you 15 watts total. I would say your 3amp fuse is more than capable. Your 10m extension lead is it a new one or an old one you had lying around. Sometimes the inside insulation on the cores and break down and become abit more noticeable with a bit if heat through them...

    Going green - in an Exclusive spec PFL RS3

    I'm probably going to sound biased but also being a 8v rs owner too I still love the look and stature of this car. When next to the standard a3 8v it looks completely unique without being to over the top with it. Almost 5 years in and it's not going anywhere, enjoy the ownership experience...

    Oil temperature without going into lap timer

    It can be activated with obdeleven or vcds in the pfl. I activated mine with obdeleven so I don't have to go into lap timer. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk

    Going green - in an Exclusive spec PFL RS3

    I've never used cruise control. My figures were driving like you, Lane 1 70mph overtaking were I need to and everything in dynamic suspension in comfort. Gearbox switched to manual mode for flexibility were its required. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk

    Car protection

    I believe its something like 1/2 microns. I can not remember the thickness of audi paint but this is next to nothing of removal. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk

    Going green - in an Exclusive spec PFL RS3

    38mpg is pretty much the best you are going to get. When I was using mine daily, 160mile round trip my range on the tank improved from 300 380miles. Long drives through France would see the top mpg figure. Most of the time it was 32/35. More than happy with that given the on tap power thus car...

    Strange Issue

    I used to experience this with the pzeros. Nothing to worry about. I believe its the tyres getting a bit of traction. Probably caused by the turning force of the drive shafts. My tyre wear was fine running this setup for a few years and 15000k+miles. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk

    Crewe Audi stock

    A maclaren c12 costs less [emoji1], given it is 10 years old but these prices for a top end a3 are simply quite astonishing. When I saw what matey paid for my 8v rs3 in 2015 new to now prices these audi dealerships are taking the p$$$. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
