    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    Bit of an update, back in love with the car! They replaced the rear disks and pads, had found a foreign object between the disk and pad apparently so needed to change them, the salesman admitted that when the car was MOT’d a month before the seller traded it in, the rear brakes should have been...

    I also love paying £130 a year for insurance and super low tax…. S3 isn’t for me

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    I’d love an S3 but I’m 38 and need a 5 door and although power is very attractive, mpg is more important to me . Basically I’m not young enough to have one anymore, but also not old enough to realise I need one

    Yes the car has a years warranty with it and the garage have given it in writing that they’ll pay for the heating to be fixed by Audi. Bearing in mind I paid £14k for the car it has to be right! Maybe slightly overpriced but try find me another Blue 185bhp one with similar mileage…. Or indeed at...

    Okay so I got a cable and it’s done exactly what I wanted! Just thought I’d share too so the car broke down last weekend, slowing down to traffic lights the brake pedal went down another 2 inches! Diagnosis was a red hot rear disk so looks like caliper binding and has boiled brake fluid! Rang...

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    Sorry forgot to mention so it’s the drivers side that when the blowers are high (not on auto setting) that doesn’t get hot as the passenger side does. also would anyone recommend a specific cable for the Audi iPod connection? Or just anything I can find that’s for that car connection?

    It appears that the heating issue I have is the whole of the drivers side including the fans too, so on low and auto the air is hot as I’d expect. But if I blast up the fan speed on manual it cools down to just slightly warm even with the engine fully upto temp. Does this seem to suggest more...

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    That’s the other colour that is stunning! Oh no never sorted the DAB issue out, wondering if it’s just due to the radio can’t pick it up due to its age… It picks up all the other DAB stations but just not that one I sort of would want, which is weird!!

    Yes so on auto, it did get nice and warm and didn’t notice issues. Was just when I changed it to manual, set blowers to feet (as we’d got back to the car and wanted to quickly warm the feet up) . Her side (the most important really) nice and warm, mine, clearly not heating up!

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    Brilliant thank you for that, yes noticed that also it appears the last thing I’ve spotted is just the rear wash wipe doesn’t work…hopefully that’s everything now! Wasn’t expecting perfection at 67k but was expecting near it considering its a main dealer selling it, clearly haven’t done the...

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    So still love the car, I agree when it’s dirty it doesn’t look anywhere near as good but I think that’s pretty standard! The power of the engine is impressive though! Coming from an Astra 165bhp diesel with nothing in the low powerband in 5th and 6th this just makes driving effortless...

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    Thanks Neil, I wasn’t sure whether it’s just an incompatibility as the Google home 5 metres from the car picks it up but the car doesn’t. Rescanned channels as well but it didn’t pick up anything extra regarding that one. There is the app though apparently so may just have to stream from that if...

    I have another query too, so we listen to Absolute Radio 00 at home, however the car won’t pick it up on DAB or even when retuning it including the L band. Does anyone have an idea at all?

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    It’s funny even reading that , when you think of the basics. A premium brand…. renowned for quality, but road noise that you shouldn’t really hear comes as standard? it’s not terrible, just a bit more present than my Astra. I will say this though, that engine….wow it absolutely flies!

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    It’s running continental tyres fitted by the previous owners, fronts are almost new and backs got a few mm on them so ready for changing. ahh okay so adding a centre speaker? I’ve not investigated yet into where all the speakers are but that’s really useful to know thank you!

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    So new update, interestingly noticed there’s more road noise than in my previous Astra on 19’s but I can deal with that. Was surprised the stereo seemed to only go upto acceptable levels too, seems either the internal amp isn’t powerful enough or it automatically restricts certain tones such as...

    Oh also Ila’s I told the dealer I’m not collecting it until the air con is fixed they regassed it on Monday and apparently it’s been fine all week so sounds like it’s just ran low, was wary about possible leaks but we’ll see. Was driven by an older couple so I can imagine the a/c wasn’t used a...

    New Scuba blue A3 TDI184

    Ahh okay thank you, as I say the car can already see the satellites so it sounds like it’s half prepared already. Will update based on what the scenario is. Pick the car up today and changing from an Astra 2.0 CDTI Vxline so it’ll be nice have a few more mod cons and quality around me!
