    Well a guy local to me (Rockvale Graphics) did them as he is a registered dubmeister distributer! Was just easier to bring him the tax book rather than send it away to dubmeister, know what i mean?

    hello mate

    well i dont have VagCom either but boydie does so he done it for me

    its is basically just a bit of coding that allows you to have the beep when the car is locked, unlocked or both like mine! anybody local to you with VagCom could do it for you and couldn't charge you more than 10

    Lovely car! And look forward to seeing the RNS-e in it, want to do a double din conversion in mine but not sure how much of an ordeal it is so keep us posted!

    Do you know if the alarm beem is only from a certain year onwards or would I be able to activate that on my '04?

    Hello mate

    I couldn't say for certain that your 04 will have the alarm beep but to be honest not that much changed inside between 04-06 so i would be surprised if you didn't have the ability to activate it

    Any of the FB wheels are nice to be honest compared to the bus drivers wheel that comes as standard

    Can't remember the part nos for the pedals but they can be bought from a dealer for c. 100 or how about this ebay guy:
    Audi A3 8P S3 original genuine pedals sportback RHD on eBay (end time 14-Sep-10 22:13:27 BST)

    Or here from Stoke Audi:
