    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...

    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!!

    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.

    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?

    (Rear?) Suspension Knock on S3

    Has anyone experienced this? It's like a muffled rumble that sometimes escalates into a brief knocking sound. It's best heard on a flat level road whilst cruising at low speed in 5/6 gear. Dealer said it was a loose exhaust heat shield, but adjusting it made no difference. I reckon it's...
