    About to buy an s3

    I noticed the main Custer pixels are dead and not sure if the washer jets for the xenons are working.

    ...and after a few seconds of using the washers... they don't come on straight away...

    DIS can be fixed and is a common problem...

    There are a few companies that do the replacement LCD fitted (no idea of prices) or you can buy them

    I typed 'DIS replacement' into the search both on here and on Google mate and came up with loads of info on how to do this..

    Audi A3 8L Dash Display Dead Pixel Repair

    Dead DIS (Again)

    Not an 8L but same principle...
    DIS LCD Replacement - guide

    The Audi TT Forum :: View topic - DIY replacement of the DIS LCD screen

    The search system does work... like anything (Google included) you have to trawel through it a bit...

    site:audi-sport.net S3 (then add your search in here) removing the brackets
