    TPS are great for parts - did me a good deal on a lot of these parts. E.g the grills were cheaper than I saw a pair used on Ebay.

    Just a quick one - the fog grills, in some of the original pics they look like they have no chrome surrounds but in some they do?

    Fog grills are stupid and dont grip bumper properly i snapped the lugs some how and now they are at risk of falling out lol, large middle grill just clips into bumper no new clips needed im pretty sure then you just use the top holding bolts to secure the top down

    Hard to remember now but I think it just clips in mostly. I think there are two or three screws along the top edge that secure it to your actual car though.... at the front of your engine bay.

    Cost = �14.50 for the pair
    Difficulty rating = 5

    (part no. 000 979 244E, cost 2 x �4.79)

    also any body got the part numbers for the 18 screws which hold the grill to the bumper

    You definitely need the plugs because your existing sport's plugs won't fit.
    The wires you can get away with reusing your existing ones. It can be a bit hit and miss though so I'd recommend spending a tenner on new wires just in case you end up needing them.

    I can have a look in ETKA tonight to see if they are listed.

    I think the screws you are talking about are part number N 908 974 01. You get 13 of them in a pack for about 50p. Audi will be able to confirm they are what you need, but looking at ETKA it looks like they are what you are after.

    The three screws that I mentioned that go at the top edge of the grille are part number N 910 702 01 (size M6x30). You'll get three in a pack... also about 50p. You'll definitely need these.

    Also, I wouldn't muck about getting fog plugs from ebay and soldering etc. Just get the proper ones from Audi as per the part number I gave you, it's not like they're expensive.

    H7 existing plug needs to go into a h7 female
    then you need to solder on a h11 male to go into the h11 bulbs for the s line fogs, even if you get it wrong you will only be about £15 out of pocket so dont have heart attack over it lol

    Hold on. Unless I'm missing something very obvious here.... the actual real genuine kosher ones are only about £15 for the pair, so what's the point in doing an eBay bodge job for the same price?!

    Just ease off the existing plugs, fit the new ones, and hey presto... you've got working fog lights, for the same price as the eBay route... minus the fire hazard.

    The point is you don't have to cut the wires. Just ease them out and insert into the new plugs. Simple.

    I'm yet to speak to someone who hasn't managed it.

    I'm just trying to save him time and solder

    hi mate, sorry a bit off topic but I've seen you've moved from a3 to scirocco, and I'm going for that movement too. Just wondering if you could give me some help

    ( questions are in relative to a3)

    how is it to drive compared to the a3
    how is parking, is it harder/ easier?
    does the ACC make a difference?

    do you think it's a good upgrade, any regrets?



    cheers

    No worries...

    The drive is much better than my A3. Braking, cornering, traction, everything is just much much better. Although that's to be expected as you're comparing an 'R' model to an A3.
    Performance is much better too, even though my A3 was remapped.

    A lot is made of the rear view in a scirocco being poor and that rear parking sensors are a must... I only slightly agree with this. The rear view is not great but it's enough to be able to reverse park with no problems after you get used to it. Parking sensors would obviously make it easier but they are definitely nowhere near "a must" for any half decent parker.

    ACC works nicely. In comfort mode the steering becomes lighter and suspension softer, although still as firm as say an A3 sport, maybe slightly less firm. Normal mode is more somewhere between sport and s-line I'd say. Sport mode is very firm and you'd only want to use this over smooth surfaces. The steering firms up nicely too and throttle response gets sharper. Again, these are all relative to the R.
    For the GT they say that the sport mode is similar to the R's normal mode, and the GT's normal mode is similar to the R's comfort mode.

    I think the scirocco is a worthwhile upgrade. You get a lot more as standard, so depending on how your A3 is spec'd you could end up with a lot more toys.
    Like most of us, I like people liking my car and the scirocco gets a lot of nice attention, with people pulling up next to me asking what it is etc etc.

    Which engine/model scirocco are you looking to get? Also which year? There are a few changes to be aware of if going for a GT... engine power increase on the 2.0tsi, white dials/DIS around late 2009, plus a few other bits.
