    What I don’t like about my A3

    1. Bigger models have the full system - Have to have special valves in the tyres as well - A3 system uses the ABS system to detect change in wheel circumference 2. Doesn't have an electronic dipstick so wouldn't have this option in the MMI - Unfortunately you have to use the old fashioned method...

    What I don’t like about my A3

    My works Pool car Seat Leon pre new model is the same - I think it’s something to do with if you have the start button that all A3’s do now - the old turn key method turned everything off when you took the key out

    You could try changing your password on the APP and then redo the setup

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    They are black as is the Grill and window surrounds etc - It comes with the Black Styling pack as standard - If you select Turbo Blue and then select body coloured mirrors it makes you change the car colour to Mythos Black

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    Totally agree - It's something I hate - They started doing it at the end of the 8V model - I had a Daytona S3 and that was color-coded - My current S3 is black so not an issue - It's the same with the mirrors on the A3 (excluding S/RS) unless you go black Just more penny pinching from Audi I'm...

    Oil change already?

    To be fair the Oil light hasn’t come on it’s the Audi Connect app that advised the dealer and that’s only because it’s approaching 11 months - I expect the dash to report it soon though I was aware about the variable servicing etc s my friend is a master tech but usually Audi’s are on this...

    Oil change already?

    I got my S3 in November 2020 and it will be due it's first service November 21 - Must have been set on fixed as I've only done 4000 miles - I do have the service plan though I managed to get this info of the MY Audi page Additional work for your Audi Depending on mileage and vehicle age, your...

    Recommend Screenwash

    I always use the genuine VW/Audi Screenwash as recommended back when I had a Mark 4 Golf with Fan Jets as when they block with the cheaper stuff it then used to blow the pipe off the rear one and blow the wiper motor - You want the litre bottles from Parts not the 500ml ones in the showroom...

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    That's fair enough - I'd never had it before so wouldn't have ordered it - To be honest apart from the foot gesture thing to open the boot, it doesn't need advanced key for the powered tailgate as such just Audi's way of squeezing some more cash out of us

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    As you ordered it in April and Powered Tailgate is still available for Vorsprung models you would think they would honour that as it wasn't removed from the options until later than that - I'd drop the Advanced Key and save yourself some money unless you really want it - I only put that on as...

    Spec change through price increase

    If it's not factory locked you can usually amend your order which will be more expensive if switching to an stronic - Whether they will do at pre increase prices (assuming they have agreed to hold the old price anyway which they usually do if it changes and not yet built) is another thing and...
