    Yes it looks like that Fran if I run low on fuel the top half changes colour and if a door is open it will show there too I can flick through different bits mpg fuel left time driving pressing reset and the buttons on the end of the washer stalk, but I looked in the manual and it said theres another menu I can get into but I can't get into that and apparently because I can't get into that menu I don't have DIS.... :|

    Whoa, hang on a minute guys.

    When the A3 was first released, only the Sport model got the DIS as standard. If you didn't have this or spec it as an option, then the centre of the dash was replaced with a fixed panel with "old style" warning lights for things like bulb failures and low fuel.

    At some point later they changed this so that the "base" model cars had the same physical LCD display as the DIS-equipped one but with much reduced functionality - basically it would show you simple information but the advanced features were disabled. This is still the case on the current 8P3, where the very base model doesn't have "DIS", but still has the display - just with reduced functionality.

    It may be that the OP has such a car - the display is physically present but the full "DIS" functionality isn't.

    Actually, now I think about it, wasn't the menu only added with the white DIS - ISTR the red one didn't have a menu of any kind.
