    Mercedes C300d Cabriolet

    My car is back at the dealer this week so they have given me this as a loan car. I've had it since Monday but today is the first day I got the roof down, and have to say I enjoyed the experience. :) Cabriolets have never been my thing, but I did feel a bit like a poser driving around town today...

    Wheel Woolies

    Having just got my new car I have found a problem in cleaning my front wheels, in that it is not possible to get my hand between the brake disc and inside rim of the wheel to properly clean to the back of the wheel. This annoys me because it will allow brake dust and dirt to build up over time...

    Mercedes CLA 250

    I picked up my new car this morning - CLA 250 Premium Plus in Polar White. Arrived at the dealer at 9am in my freshly washed and gleaming S3(a credit to its owner :)), and once all the paperwork was done I was driving out in my CLA just after 10am. The dealer does not accept card payments so I...

    Service Due Soon....

    My dealer posted this video on facebook about what they have put in place for servicing during the pandemic......but what an absolute palaver, I couldn't be bothered with all that! However things could get a little complicated for me soon because I am due my second service in 25 days, but...

    Trying to buy a Mercedes....

    Well in short it's not going well..... :( I have recently been very taken by the new Mercedes CLA.....I think it is a beautiful and very classy looking car both inside and out. :sunglasses: I have done a lot of research into the models and my original choice was the CLA 35 in Sun Yellow, but...

    My First Oil Change

    Currently sitting in Dundee Audi waiting on my S3 having its first oil change......drinking free coffee and looking at the shiny new cars. Mine is 1 year and 3 days old and has done a massive 4090 miles. :) Having my car serviced is always a slightly nervous time for me because I am very...

    Road Tax Renewed

    Just renewed my road tax for the next year - £145. That's the cheapest I have paid in a long time.....possibly even this century! :openmouth: I hate paying road tax in general, but cant really complain for a car of this power/performance. :) This is the second most powerful car I have ever...

    The Dreaded Renewal Time Again

    That time is fast approaching again....always a slightly stressful time because you naturally expect to be disappointed. Buying my car a year ago I insured with Saga who were convincingly cheaper than anybody else at a total price for my level of cover of £429. My renewal figure will be...

    Oil Change Too Early.

    Some of you may remember me mentioning that my first oil change is scheduled to be done too early, this is due to my service clock not being reset when I picked my car up. I purchased my S3 brand new from Dundee Audi on 31/5/18 and it was first registered on this date. The car came from Aberdeen...

    Uncharted 4 (PS4)

    I have bought a new PS4 Pro console to replace my PS3. I am still waiting on the former being delivered but I am currently still playing the latter, still working perfectly even though it was bought on launch day in March 2007. Anyway...I have purchased 2 PS4 games from Amazon which were...

    Standard Rate Tax/£310 Additional Rate

    Most of us know that the DVLA introduced a £310 supplement on top of the £140 standard rate for new car tax on vehicles having a list price over £40,000 from 1st April 2017, which applies for 5 years after first registration. There is some confusion however on what exactly determines the "list...

    Rear Lights on with DRL

    I've mentioned previously that my rear rights are illuminated all the time with the DRL, but I am wondering how many others here do the same? It does state in the handbook that rear lights are on with the DRL in "some markets", which I assume must include the UK. I have seen other newish A3/S3...

    Service Intervals - Fixed/Variable.

    My car is currently 6 weeks old and done exactly 666 miles. :smilingimp: I was looking at my mmi and it looks like I am on the variable schedule. I only do around 6000 miles a year so I reckon I should be on fixed. Plus I have a free first service so would rather it was a full one and not just...

    Start Stop and S Tronic

    I am no stranger to Start Stop having had it on 4 previous cars.....some of the time I would disable it while other times I would let it do its thing.....the good thing was the activation was easily controllable on a manual car and was no problem. This is my first experience of the system with...

    Grade of Oil

    I always like to have a litre of oil for my cars for topping up purposes....even though I have very rarely ever needed it. I looked in my handbook but it doesn't seem to state what the specific grade of oil for my engine is. Can anybody tell me what Audi recommend please?

    Mud Flaps

    Has anybody fitted mud flaps to their S3....and could I see a photo please? :) I know this subject can divide opinion but in general I like them. With previous model variants I've owned official mud flaps have not been available, but I believe they are for the A3/S3 and are the small discreet...

    My First Audi

    Being a veteran on other forums its never easy starting again as a newbie....but this is my first Audi and after a quick look at the relevant forums this seems like the place to be. I have previously had a couple of Mk.3 Focus STs, then the car I traded in for my Audi was a 2017 Civic FK8. I...
