    Alternative product advice

    Would welcome advice regarding what to use instead of the Premium Easy Coat in the picture attached? I have an account with a Ultimate Finish but they don’t do it any more. Looking for a spray on / wash off with pressure washer finishing spray.

    Key fob battery - help

    Hope you can help? On the wife’s TT, her key fob battery ran out yesterday (the spare key is also dead, don’t ask). Per the manual, we used the “emergency” within the key fob to open the door manually. However the alarm goes off every time we do this. Any ideas how to avoid this happening...

    AB's Sophisto Grey MY20 G01 BMW X3 M40i

    Here’s a brief review. I didn’t bother test driving the BMW M40d as there were none available under the December deal. The M40i was impressive. The sound alone from the 3.0 straight six and the M Performance exhaust was stunning on start up, daily driving, changing up and down at speed...

    SQ5 Thinking of changing...... thoughts?

    As long term Audi owners we currently have an S3 Saloon and a TT, both 3 years old. Plan on changing both in the spring (or sooner if the right deal crops up). My car needs to be a towing vehicle. The wifes TT will probably be downgraded as it sits at home most of the time during the week as...

    Additional contributions from Audi / VW FInance

    Some on here will know that I normally change mine and the wife’s cars before they get to 3 years old. But, for varying reasons including inflated new prices we’ve decided to keep,both until next year. However, I was contacted out of the blue by the “Renewals Manager” at my dealership stating...

    Facelift What’s this about?

    Every time I get in the car this week, 2 mins after I start the car, I get this message. As it’s green, I assume it’s telephone related? No idea what it’s for, what password I’m to use etc. Car is approaching 3 years old if that’s relevant. Any ideas folks? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Been using the wifes TT to even up the mileage a bit on the two cars. Noticed the past two mornings that the drivers mirror ain't demisting (the passenger one is). Any quick fixes I can do myself? Trying to avoid a garage trip if poss.

    Drivers mirror not de-misting

    I know I'm on the A3/S3 forum asking about a TT but there's likely to be more responses here. Been using the wifes TT to even up the mileage a bit on the two cars. Noticed the past two mornings that the drivers mirror ain't demisting (the passenger one is). Any quick fixes I can do myself...

    Best Audi Towing vehicle?

    Right, so I currently have the S3 Saloon and my wife has a TT, both from new '66 plates. We normally change when around 3 years old, which they both will be in November. Our plan in the next year or so is to buy a touring caravan (I know, I know!). Need to plan ahead so that one of our next...
