    Couple of questions for a new A3 owner

    I have had my TDI a week and loving it so far! It currently is averaging around 39mpg which i believe is a little low? I had it plugged into a vagcom computer and it said that the cam sensor needed adjusting - could this be the cause?

    Also, can anyone tell me how to make it so that my dual climate control works off just 1 of the dials (at the moment i have to adjust both dials). Finally - once i have clicked the auto button for climate control, how do i turn it off?

    thanks

    Press and hold auto for about 2-3 seconds then the drivers control should do both until the passengers is used again, as for the economy issue I can't help there,I'm a bit off an engine biff

    may sound silly but check your tyre pressure? i assumed mine would be correct as it was an Audi Approved car but it wasn't. i've sorted it now and i'm getting the same fuel economy from my 2.0T as i was getting from my old 1.6 LOL
