    DSG Gearshift Knob red plastic ring?

    I suppose I could refine the model a bit further and see if I can get it so it doesn't need so much tinkering afterwards. If I can get one that literally just needs painted I'd be happy to post them to anyone for the price of a stamp and they could paint them themselves. FYI I used Misano Red...

    DSG Gearshift Knob red plastic ring?

    That's exactly what I did. I only had black PLA so after printing I sanded, painted red and lacquered then fitted. I measured the original, designed a quick 2 piece part in freecad and printed it at 99% 100% and 101% scales at the highest quality. Took about 30 mins to print. End result is...

    DSG Gearshift Knob red plastic ring?

    Unfortunately I don't have the broken off bit. I bought the car used (Audi Approved Used) and have only just noticed this now

    DSG Gearshift Knob red plastic ring?

    I noticed the plastic red ring is broken on my dsg gear knob. Does anyone know if you can disassemble this somehow and replace the red ring. It seems silly to have to replace the entire shifter.

    All in one sub + amp for 8V S3 standard audio system

    Hi. I was hoping to add the following sub to my 2015 S3 Saloon. I'm not an audio expert but handy enough that I reckon I can manage such an install. My expectation is that there should be a connection available on the back of the unit in the glove box for this sub and that it will simply just...

    New matte colours, but did you wonder how they get their names?

    I could never be satisfied with a car on which I couldn't admire the shine after a Sunday afternoon wash

    Android Auto / Apple Carplay

    2015 S3 8V with standard audio package and MMI system. Car has parking plus (but no cameras) and also has navigation. I have seen multiple different retro fit kits for android auto and car play and they all seem to do the same thing. Is there any good reason to pay 650 euro plus shipping and...

    Best tyres for Audi s3 8v 2014

    Mine has mich PS4S on front axle and Ventus S1 Evo3 on rear axle. Zero wheelspin from front or rear on a launch and seems to grip just as well rear as it does front around the corners. If I was replacing tyres I would go PS4S all round but I'm also impressed with the S1 Evo 3
