    What does your car history look like?

    Mine was an Austin Healey 3000 then a Ferrari Dino in my youth......had to settle for a Ford Anglia :blow:

    Alloygator for 19” Trapezoid Alloys

    Totally agree with above. You will have to get all alloys refurbished, when you remove those " protectors " as the rims will be a mess underneath.

    Why do you hate the new A3/S3 8Y?

    I dislike it, why? It has 4 rings on it and it is not up to Audi standards for interior quality and design. Those air vents are awful and the plastic looks cheap. To my eye my 2017 S3 is a keeper with an MMI screen that can be lowered and shut off, as I rarely use it, except for maps and that is...

    All new S3

    Thanks, for the correction on viewing angles, I have not viewed that Q90R and that surprises me. the one thing I do not like on a telly is picture pop, too artificial and that is why I calibrate all the weird settings in custom mode, just go to custom settings for SDR, HDR and Dolby and you will...

    All new S3

    Just catching up....no worries on burn on new model OLED telly, unless as previously pointed out with gaming static picture left on for an hour or more. My new Sony Oled HDI UHD XBR 55 A8H delivers a stunning picture even better than my old Plasma which was pretty damn good Major...

    All new S3

    Mods, I know this not the place to post non S3 topics, but I just wanted to share this with fellow posters who might be interested. Dougie's after Xmas pressie to himself....A Sony XBR 55" 4K UHD HDR Oled Telly and forgot to turn off a small light that is reflected on the screen. Amazing...

    Now back to the new S3. :blink: The interior is a design flop and is not up to Audi standards

    All new S3

    Seriously, I am more interested in the comments of Jassy0O6's on his decision to not buy the new S3 and his current order of a TTS. I also am not thrilled with the new S3 interior and it is not on my radar for a new car.

    All new S3

    What colour? I really like your thoughts on the TTS and it is a car with a design that will not age. Lovely car and I would love to own one, but two doors and really no back seats nullified me in placing an order a year ago.

    Audi delays due to chip shortage

    I have owned my 2017 since day one and it will be 4 years old Feb/14th. Love the fact of no payments every month and to be very honest I still love the car and will keep it at least one more year. No cars in that price range float my boat as of this date, including the new S3 with the exception...

    All new S3

    The TTS is a very nice car and for one who is not interested in boot size or rear seats, it makes a lot of sense.

    All new S3

    One: I like haggling a deal. Two: I would never buy a car without seeing in the flesh. Three: ditto to point two on paint selection. Four: no test drive then no buy car. Five: I prefer to deal with a local dealership for service and on any issues, not some web based company. Six : I have never...

    Matt’s Defender Build Thread.

    Matt I understand the practicality of a van, but I loved that Landy, it was special, especially with all the work you put into it. I trust she found a good home. To all, have a festive Covid season :blink:

    Front Matrix LED Light Cluster fogging

    I trust that when you take the car to the dealership, a telephone call will be useless, that you get the shop foreman to look at your issue....not a salesperson or service adviser.
