    Deceitful Audi

    Is your car Misano Red, powerplay? I agree that what the dealer has done constitutes criminal activity, and I would tell them so. You should expect the damage being put right at no charge and very generous compensation as an alternative to a trip to your local cop shop to report the matter.

    ...to settle an argument. Does the current A3 with climate control have a cooled glovebox?

    New S3 or Golf R32? Help!!

    I thought I'd start a little debate! I have owned my S3 since 2000, and was looking forward to replacing it with the new version when it comes out, even though I'm getting well p'd off with the length of time Audi is taking to launch the new car. I mean, there hasn't been a new S3 on sale for...

    I've got my new S3, just a few questions

    This is an old chestnut. All modern turbos are watercooled, and the water continues to be pumped round the system after switch-off (at least it does in the S3 as I recall). Also, If you use fully synthetic oil (e.g. Mobil 1), you are more or less 100% protected against "cooking" the oil...

    Sat Nav installation service

    Hi Craig, I have a MY2000 S3, which is obviously pre-facelift with a Audi Concert HU, and is (as I understand it), pre-CANBUS. I have been trying to interpret this thread to see whether it would be economic and viable to have the OEM satnav conversion fitted to my car, but I'm afraid I find...

    S3 CD Upgrade to MP3

    My apologies in advance for asking what must be an oft-repeated question. Having left my audio system untouched since I bought my S3 new in 2000, I thought it was about time that I upgraded the standard (pre-wired) 6 CD changer so I can play them new-fangled MP3 thingies with the standard...

    New A3 Grille

    Has anyone "blacked out" the chrome surround to the new A3 grille? Just wondered what it would look like, particularly with black paintwork (which tends to pick it out more than any other colour, I reckon). Over to you, Photoshoppers!!

    Still Lovin my S3

    I bought my S3 new in June 2000, and I've still got it. Has 38k miles up, and still drives like new. As I enter my 6th year of continuous ownership (can anyone beat this?) there is still nothing that can touch it for the money. There's only one thing that would tempt me to make a change: a...

    New S3 Imminent?

    Got my increasingly-ancient S3 serviced today. Speaking to senior Service Tech whose background is with Audi DTM Team and apparently has good Audi connections in der Vaterland. Said Tech is convinced that the announcement of the new S3 is imminent, that it will have a 2.0 litre four with "about...

    S3 Front Suspension Knock

    Has anyone else experienced this? I'm getting a knock from the front offside, particularly noticeable when the suspension bottoms-out in dips in the road. I've looked at the bushes, and they seem in good order. No broken spring, either. Surely not the shockers after only 28k ?? Any thoughts?

    Soham girls

    [ QUOTE ] AndyMac said: There was a witness who said she had seen both of them looking in Huntley's boot, and Maxine had her hand over her mouth and was sobbing. I'm guessing with all the bleeding hearts on here for poor old lying, duplicitous Maxine, that none of you have kids. I can't even...

    Soham girls

    Golf Bygone, You and that one juror must be the only people in the entire country to feel sorry for Carr. She deserves no pity; she deliberately obstructed the police investigation throughout and her malice is proved by her failure to tell the truth to the police until the last minute, despite...

    Which tyres

    I got a full set of Pilot Sport 2's put on my S3 during the summer. The tyres seem to suit the car, so I thought I got a good deal at £100 each fitted and balanced.
