    New Car Ordered - Toyota Yaris GR-Four

    Not been on here for a while. Nice to see people are starting to order the new A3 / S3. After waiting for the reviews, and now seeing them, I've take the plunge and ordered the new Yaris GR-Four. Seeing what Toyota have done to this car, and all the bespoke equipment they've added to it with...

    Test drove the A35 AMG yesterday

    After the X3 M40i, I thought I'd test drive the A35 AMG, with the option of buying the Saloon version. I test drove the hatch. First impressions sat inside. Quite impressed with the tech, and liked the feel of the seats and steering wheel. I'd requested an extended drive, so was a bit miffed...

    Test drove a X3 M40i yesterday

    As per title. Been thinking of a few cars that I might wish to change the S3 to next year. Spoke to my local BMW dealer Tuesday, and they had an X3 M40i demonstrator in. Champion! Collected it yesterday. First thoughts when it was driven round was that it sounded fantastic. Probably exhaust...

    S3 wheel colour change?

    I've recently had 3 wheels refurbished. I kerbed one, and Audi paid for the rear 2 after it looked liked they were damaged while it was with them for 7 weeks while my new engine was awaiting fitting. Upon collecting the car I noticed the refurbished wheels looked darker around the edges...

    How would a new engine effect value?

    Following on from a previously posted thread. Had engine issues. Cost to find the fault ...... £2400. Fault found. Cracked Piston and something with the rings. It now needs a new engine. Total cost £13,000 !!!!! So now I'm hoping Audi are going to provide a new engine, as otherwise I'll have...

    Cylinder 1 misfire.

    Here we go. As per my previous thread. EPC light came on sat at traffic lights. engine off, engine on. Worked fine. Next set of traffic lights, same again. Engine light then appeared, and runs as rough as a Badgers B*****k at idle, and sounded like it was dropping a Cylinder. It has indeed...

    The dreaded EPC light strikes again !!!

    Just spent a week in North Wales on holiday. Lovely place. Noticed the car was starting to judder slightly at low revs. Happened all week. Thought it was a bit weird, but not too concerned. Driving home yesterday. Not too far from our cottage, and the damn EPC light comes on, and it sounds...

    Buy your new car before 2022 Hope Audi have the new S3 out before 2022. Same for the next Focus RS. Otherwise we all might as well buy 1.0l Fiesta's. Think car manufacturers will sell shed load of car in 2021. Sales collapse in 2022. The end is Nigh for the motor car, and any...

    Extended warranty costs

    So the S3 is coming to the end of it's 3 year manufacturer warranty next month. What have people been paying to extend their warranty? I'm tempted to keep with Audi, and it's coming in at £487 with no excess. Are people paying less or more than that? And who else should I look at? And are they...

    EPC Light?

    Was driving the other day, and as I came out of a tight bend, I accelerated in second gear. As I did so, the car seamed to slightly stutter, and I thought I'd hit a bit of black ice. Straight away the EPC light came on, but the car was driving normally. Got my destination, not too much further...

    Mr JWW ABT Tuning Audi warranty safe?

    Just been looking at his video regarding his S1. Has stated the ABT Products are now Audi warranty safe, as long as you only go for a simple tuning. I assume stage 1. Can't find anything online regarding this. Would love to tune my S3, but lack of warranty should anything go wrong has always...

    Annoying as they are, they are becoming seriously annoying. Anyone else noticed that a lot of videos now come with 2 adverts before hand? What next? 3 minutes of adverts to every YouTube video. Grrrr

    Depreciation between Saloon & Sportback

    Does anyone know what is holding value better between an S3 Saloon and S3 Sportback? Thinking about ordering an RS3 for April delivery. I bought an S3 saloon over the Sportback as I think the Saloon looks better. But I'm undecided with the RS3. The Sportback actually looks more sporty. As an...

    Anyone good at Photoshop?

    Can anyone photoshop the SB wheels onto the Saloon? If I can't order them with the car, I might have to buy some additional wheels instead. Or just get a SB

    Evo's first review of the FL RS3 SB Sounds promising. Glad Passive dampers will be standard. £45k for SB, so possible £46.5 for Saloon. Still looking at £50k car without trying on the options list though. Hopefully the car will come pretty...

    Honest opinions on DSG only

    I currently have an S3 Saloon, bought because I could opt for a Manual gearbox. Main reason why I didn't buy the last RS3 (No manual) Now that the RS3 Saloon will soon be available to order, it's doing my head in. I want to order one badly, but scared that after a few weeks of ownership, the...
