    Front/rear washers and rear wiper not working 2008 A3

    Thanks for the reply :) All the problems happened at the same time. The pump for the washer jets isnt running so i dont think its a nozzle issue. They were all working fine, then all stopped working, along with the rear wiper.

    Front/rear washers and rear wiper not working 2008 A3

    Disconnected cable - but what's it for?

    Bose in all S3s

    ive got bose and i think it sounds very clear and ive never heard it distort up high really. Unless your putting it up ear bleeding loud. Its perfectly fine for everyday use and normal sound levels imho.

    S3 at night under streetlamp

    yea problem was that with a lower aperture you obviously have to have a very long s/s and it was a bit too windy for that. Yea i think lower down would have looked much better.

    S3 at night under streetlamp

    Hi, Got so many normal day photos of the S3, i decided to try something else. I think it came out ok but has a bit of camera shake (was expected with 6s s/s - was a tad windy on a flimsy tripod) Also a bit random, but some interesting photos from the most recent goodwood revival...

    dont think u can replace the tailpipes on their own - you would have to get a new backbox which seems a waste of money when you could just spend a few hours cleaning them.
