I get a nice company car allowance but its purely a privilege and there are no requirements for me to get a newish car or...

As above, does anybody have vag com and a cable in or around glasgow/coatbridge and ten mins of free time over this weekend or next?
I cant for the life of me find my cable and need to read the codes from my heap of rust and trouble
Since about last week, when i start the car from cold on tickover its making a weird sort of, well ticking. It's fairly loud makes it sound diesel-ish
The noise changes speed with the revs and has definately only just started occuring.
Only happens when cold, clears up within 5-10 mins...
As above A3 is for sale soon as per this ad
Now obviously the car isn't worth much so im not so keen on sticking it in the autotrader to be barraged with phonecalls from agencies but nobody else, all for about 40 quid...
As promised, here is a larger version of sig pic:
18" RS4 reps at the time - the back is the original slightly lower sport springs after around 80,000 miles
Front was new springs at the time, only a few hundred miles, they've settled a little more now.
Now on 16" A3 Turbo wheels (I...
As above, i've just been 'informally' offered a job with one of our competitors. Still a few details to iron out with them but im happy with what they're proposing just now and i feel it would be a good move for me.
Problem is, if and when i hand my notice in, how do i go about telling my...

Anybody have any idea how i can get rid of the flashing light and sound when the abs fuse is pulled?
Would just get it fixed however nobody can actually find the fault, all wiring's been checked all the sensors have now been replaced, vag com hasnt a clue just tells me there's an intermittent...

In work just now, had somewhere to go so jumped in the car. Sounded a bit funny, pretty rough feeling too - got a mile along the road and it cut out, as if id stalled the car.
Tried to restart, odd smell and wouldnt turn, as if there was no battery, so i rolled the car off the road and had a...
Well after my starter motor debarcle at the weekend my aux belt has slipped off whilst driving today.
Had a look and the belt's fubar so i have a new one on its way to me but ill need to change it in work, i.e in half an hour so.
Had a look seems like the tensioner comes off with 3 bolts...
Anybody know what checks i can do to be sure my starter motor is goosed before i fit a new one?
car just clicks once when the key is turned, battery has plenty of power, or so it seems at least
Car bump starts fine
Wont jump start.
Anything else i can do ?
Well for some time now i've had my abs light on - vag com comes up with an intermittent fault which originally suggested i needed a new sensor - i replaced this but light still on.
This was about 2 months ago and ive only just got round to checking the rest of the system over(i know im lazy)...
Its tyre changing time for me and im gettin tired of payin £300 every six months(30,000 miles a yr) or so for tyres so im after a set of original a/s3 alloys with tyres, either a straight swap or with cash.
As said the tyres all need changing, the rear 2 are still legal but the fronts have one...
