    S1 Nav upgrade

    That’s a load of bull The car MUST already have 2 slots to be able to upgrade. There are 2 things you need to upgrade; 1. A license (available only from a dealer and about £400) 2. A single SD card with the maps on (available from the dealer for about £200 or a lot less from other sources!)...

    Clutch slip in 6th gear

    I sold the car when it started slipping (not for that reason, just coincidence!). But I would definitely have uprated it, stock clutches are known to be made of cheese on the S1. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Clutch slip in 6th gear

    Sounds like the clutch is nearing end of life. Mine did exactly this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    And then you’ve cluttered up the model specific areas anyway and not even been kind enough to provide a link. Facepalm comes to mind! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New RS3 0-60 Without Launch Control?

    First post on a forum and you choose to blurt a load of absolute twaddle quoting a 5 year old post! I’ve had 6 more cars since my RS3 so advice on what I should do next isn’t that useful. Recommend you look more carefully at post dates and work on sentence structure. Also, you say a “5 like...

    S1, magnetic ride or not?

    No, it has electronically controlled dampers. Difference is; With magride the fluid can be magantised making it harder to flow and so firming up the suspension. The level of magnetism is varied continuously based on DriveSelect and other inputs. With the electric dampers, imaging a normal...

    PFL MMI Start up screen

    Might also depend on if you have the tech pack or not. The smaller screen version maybe doesn’t do the splash screen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    PFL MMI Start up screen

    Leave the car for 20 mins (the MMI stays awake in the background for 15-20 mins after you lock it), then unlock it when stood right by the door and get straight in and start it. If you unlock as you approach the MMI starts to boot up quietly in the background and you’ll often not get the splash...

    Fog/cornering light question

    No on the PFL they are static with static cornering lights. They are so good you don’t miss the bending effect of Xenons. On the FL you have the option of matrix LED, which don’t bend but obviously can project light dynamically to different parts of the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fog/cornering light question

    They are ‘all weather lights’. They are the cornering lights and effectively fogs and shouldn’t really be left on as they will dazzle traffic at some angles when it’s not foggy. There are rules/laws about cornering lights and the speeds they can be used at for this reason. Sent from my iPhone...

    Purchased an S1 in Nogaro Blue

    Hey! It certainly is an exclusive colour. I run a club for Nogaro Blue cars (check us out and join us!). Yours is the only Noggy S1 I’ve seen. There is an A1 in Italy that I know of, but that is it! Car looks great! I used to have a Vegas Yellow S1, but now have a...

    8v RS3 Spotters Thread

    I’ve got an M240i having come from an RS3. Honestly I don’t think the RS3 is worth the premium, aside from in the winter of course! Not driven an M2 but I’d be surprised if you found the RS3 much better/worse overall, they both have pros and cons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New RS3 Advise

    21s!!! I run 21’s on an A8 with 25 profile tyres, there’s no way you’ll get some to go on an RS3 and be usable! I ran 1x 20 rim for 50 miles when I had a blow out on my RS3, it had no rubbing points lock to lock but did have a slightly larger circumference than the 3x 19s on it so if you did...

    Saloon Tow bar

    As the RS3 has no max train weight on the VIN plate it is illegal to tow with it. Only legal use for a tow bar would be for a bike rack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
