    Any-one got any ideas? All i can think of is something is draining my battery whilst its parked up, I'll get a voltage test on the battery and see what voltage its putting out.

    Its a fairly new battery but you never know.

    Weird sometimes its ok others its not

    I'd maybe get vag com on it just to see if it throws anything up.

    The A3's have a strange electrical system, i cant jump another car from my car so maybe there's something similar kicking in with ur car when starting
