    Things you did to your 8Y RS3 thread.

    Thanks. Will have to keep my eye on it. My wife took it to work this morning. Turned it off at the bottom of our road, by the time she was going up the sliproad to the motorway, she said it had turned itself back on again. She tried again and it only lasted a few minutes then it was back on...

    Folded Mirrors not even

    Yeah, to be honest its a weapon, and in another league in a straight line, but getting dated now with the tech and gearbox. For its size, it's possible to throw around surprisingly easily and still makes a great drivers car. The 8Y does seems really planted though. Will need a bit more time...

    Things you did to your 8Y RS3 thread.

    How do you turn lane departure off properly? Sometimes, after pressing the button on the end of the stalk, it waits 10 seconds or so and goes off, only to come back on all on its own during the same journey. Has a mind of its own.

    Folded Mirrors not even

    How strange that they all do it. I've had a few Audi's in the past but I have to admit, probably not had folding mirrors. Good job I didn't go to the dealer. They probably would have ordered me a new mirror and spent hours fitting it for the same thing to happen ! Yes we have a 2018 GTR too...

    Folded Mirrors not even

    Has anyone noticed their folder mirrors differ between sides. The drivers one doesn't fold back anywhere near the tight angle of the passenger?

    Tracking our new RS3?

    What is a typical build week to on the drive time? I understand things might go slower at the moment but how long does it take to build and ship the car from the build week?

    Anyone want my REALLY early order - Vorsprung Saloon RS3

    Cancelled order now so this offer is off the table. Just thought I might be able to help someone out.

    Anyone want my REALLY early order - Vorsprung Saloon RS3

    Yeah i was gutted. The interior needs that lift with the colour splashed. It was a real turn on for buying. Then the colours.....dropped Nardo....I know why (too popular) but that doesn't make it bad. No red calipers? What the..... I know I can get them done elsewhere but might invalidate...

    Anyone want my REALLY early order - Vorsprung Saloon RS3

    I've got 1k down on a really early order with Preston Audi. I've not signed any paperwork or specced the car so I could easily get this back but seems a shame to waste such an early order. I had already been in for a chat with sales before anything was available to order. I then had a call...

    New RS3 8Y Design Details

    When I went into Preston Audi to put down the deposit we both took a real liking to an RS5 in Nogaro Blue they had in the showroom. The colour was amazing and I would be tempted to splash the cash if they allowed it. Quick Google showed it was an exclusing option on the old RS3 model - at...

    Selling TT-RS - Do I take it back to stock

    I've booked myself into AwesomeGTI in Manchester to have the upgrades removed in a couple of weeks. Gonna cost me £600 including stock map loaded back and alignment but it's high end kit and would make a great second hand package for someone. The current map was great becasue it cut out the...

    Selling TT-RS - Do I take it back to stock

    Having put my deposit down on the new RS3, my wifes 2018 TT-RS Cab will be going up for sale shortly. Trouble is, I'm not sure if I would be better taking it back to stock and selling the tuning parts or leave it as is. Its got the Wagner EVO3 Competion kit with the big intercooler and racing...

    New RS3 8Y Design Details

    I'm actually hoping for a January onwards registration. Just to help a little at resale with it being a 2022 car rather than a December 2021. I asked the dealer who took my deposit what woudl happen if I had the call in December that the car was being delivered and I would happily pay the...
