    So, picked up a 21 plate S3 in March and today received a notification than an oil change is due in 29 days. Would that be right already? I'm a massive car noob btw so go easy if it's an obvious answer! Ta

    Ok, so just handed back my A4 3.0 tdi 272 quattro and taken delivery of a new S3 saloon. When I put my foot down in the A4, it shifted, the torque was great, pushed me back into the seat and flew, you knew you were accelerating! There's none of that in the S3, yes it goes when you put your...

    MMI view

    Guys can I just clarify, any issues if your phone is plugged in via cable? I'm picking mine up next week, but if it means plugging a cable in sorts a lot of issues, then I'm fine.
