    S3 Insurance and Front Splitter - Side Skirts

    Over 2k to renew for me next month :( Ridiculous considering I’ve had the car for over two years. I bought it when I was 20 and had gotten amazing prices for my age at that time. Now it seems to be only going up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Air Con condenser - design fault??

    Apologies, I just went back and looked at the audi cam link again, it was actually priced at £480 inc VAT. When I spoke to them about it they did mention that anything they quote is inclusive of labour and VAT so that would be the final price. As to my question regarding the adaptive cruise...

    Air Con condenser - design fault??

    Mine just went in for service at Oldham Audi recently. Prior to this I was aware that the A/C gas had leaked and consequently the air con no longer stayed on. When they did their usual inspection during the service they mentioned that the front condenser was damaged probably by a stone hitting...

    Timing belt or chain?

    Providing the car is maintained and serviced to the manufacture guidelines, it should last the lifetime of the engine. Not sure what belt the app is referring to but the EA888 engine is used across multiple models within VW group and it’s definitely chain driven. Sent from my iPhone using...

    Timing belt or chain?

    Yeah I’ve had times when I’ve gone to the dealers and their own service advisors don’t know if it’s chain driven and then tell me that I need a belt change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    PFL S3 Exhaust Mods

    If you’re around Manchester, awesome GTI quoted me around the £100 mark to have a res delete. They’re a good place for mods on VW group cars in general. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m at a loose end, please help! S3 8V intermittent rough idle.

    You said you’ve changed the exhaust cam sensor, have you looked at the inlet cam adjuster? That was the issue on mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Driver Assistance Pack

    I think it works pretty good in traffic. If the car is stationary for more than a few seconds, you’ll have to pull the cruise control toggle to set off again but it can break to a complete standstill. The lane assist is a bit of a mixed one for me. If you don’t input anything to the steering for...

    Driver Assistance Pack

    I have it specced on my s3. I personally use the system everyday and love it. Mine has the DSG so I find it a perfect fit compared to a manual. It can be a bit dimwitted at time but it’s a safe system and just makes long journeys very relaxing. I’m driving on motorway everyday so you can see why...

    Can belt change cost.

    Sounds awesome, mines stock. I’m only 21 so insurance is still a sticking point with mods, for me personally. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
