    New tyres, which are good value?

    Just before winter I put on Cross Cilmates. Have to say, other than a bit more road noise they have been great in all conditions, including snow

Anyone have any idea what the likely cause...

    ESP kicking in when going downhill

    ESP kicking in when going downhill

    It's just a bit of a pain. I was wondering if it's the throttle. Only had this car 6 months but have had a few A3s and never came across this before. Also been told it might be to do with the way the commonrail delivers the fuel.

    Interior carpets

    ive just been hoovering the car and noticed my carpet doesn't sit tight on the floor. It is sort of bossed up as if it's too big. Is that normal? I've had a couple of other 8Ps and never noticed this before. The carpet isn't wet and no signs of any leaks. Any one else's carpet the same? Cheers
