    Automatic Transmission Fluid change ?

    Tried a search but couldn't find anything specific to the A/S3. Has anyone had this done ? Wondering what the recommended service interval is and what people have paid to have this done at either Audi or an independent ? I'm thinking it's not practical to do at home ? I've just been quoted £180...

    The Audi Difference....

    Well completely took me by surprise as usually it's brown letters or adverts for my local pizza delivery service but just got this through the post this morning. Seemingly £100 voucher of any Audi product or service valid until 31/03/17 could also be an accessory but this will come in very handy...

    Anyone else had this ? Noticed it a few times now when unlocking the car first thing in the morning but this video is taken using the global unlock button on the interior release.

    Wing Arm or RS Rotors ?

    Ok with this future mod in mind next spring and whilst our cars are covered in grit and snow too in a lot of places help me decide the pros and cons for both these 19 inch wheel options - both almost the same price from Audi and sometimes come up on popular auction sites. This will also help to...

    Pitted A pillar trims - why and how ?

    Anyone else had this ? My car is 6 months old and I've never seen anything like this before - none of my army of cleaning products are able to shift it. To me it looks like hard water staining but I've never had a problem with similar trim pieces on any other car I've had. I use a branded...

    S3 Sportback, mag ride & Eibach Sportlines.

    Thought I'd create a thread as I've not managed to find much information on this combination and it may also serve as a useful comparison to mag ride and non mag ride clearances and ride height. Barring any disasters I'm having Eibach Sportlines fitted tomorrow morning so I'll update the thread...

    Missing Odo or am I going mad ?

    So I'm pretty sure that in the digital speedo display I could use the scroll wheel to display the Odo ??
