    audi main dealer

    I have just picked up my car from Audi today after having the same warrenty work done on the roof. It has come back immaculate inside and out and the finish is fantastic. Anyway, I had a brand new A4 (100 miles on the clock) for the week it was with them so I cant complain at all.

    Starter Motor Noise

    My 2001 A3 1.8 T Sport has just developed a noise which is apparently from the starter motor according to the man at Audi this morning. After the car has started the noise happens for about 1/2 a second as the starter motor is slowing down. The man at Audi said that it is common for the starter...

    1.8 T sounds like exhaust is blowing then starts up?

    My 1.8 T did exactly the same thing when I got it (blowing of air sound for the first 60 seconds of start up from cold), it turned out that the rivets holding the secondry air pump together had broken so a lot of the air being produced went straight out of the side of the casing. They are a pain...

    Cup Holder!!!

    Mine did the same thing. All I did was remove the surrounding panel (which just clips off with a little help from a screwdriver) and it then opened with little help. I then removed the unit by inserting 2 flat blade screwdrivers into the tabs along the top of the unit and then out it came. I...

    2002 S3 CO2 emmisions level

    Thanks guys, that answers the question. After a bit more research I found this http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/motoring/owningavehicle/howtotaxyourvehicle/dg_10012524 Which is quite useful. An S3 definitely falls into the over 185 g/km category so it is now £205. Not too bad and as has been...

    A2 - which one is best?

    1.4 tdi is the one to go for. Really well designed car. My Girlfriend has one and I find it a complete blast to drive. If we go anywhere I always try to use the A2 as it is stupidly economical (compared to my A3) and puts a smile on my face when I drive it. Can't recommend them highly enough!!

    A3/S3 Interior trims

    I must admit that that was my initial thought but thought I would price it up as I prefer the S3 piano black trim. I havent got a loom to the back of the car but fitting that would probably be easier than changing half of the interior and associated CAN issues!

    A3/S3 Interior trims

    I have just bought a Symphony 2 head unit to put in my face lift A3 as a replacement for the Symphony 1 but the colour of the radio compared to the surrounding plastic bits is different. Im guessing there was a period between introducing the facelift (late 2000) and introducing the lighter...

    anyone bought a dash kit?

    Has anyone ever fitted the S3 Piano black interior panels in a non S3 (I have a face lift A3 3 door)? Where would be the best place to get a set from as I bet Audi are stupidly expensive for something like this? Cheers
