    Check the off side CV gaiter for splits, I've known at least 3 cars ( 2 A3 & mk5 golf) been pulled up on that on the 1st M.O.T

    always good to have the warranty. the mot picked up a broken front spring, which has been replaced foc!!
    big decision now to sell or keep. car is 3 yrs old next month. what you guys think? not sure what the car is worth and what would you buy? budget say £21k depending on the price for mine.

    Selling if you dont need to is a whole pile of money ! its only as it gets older that it starts to pay you back a few bob.

    I was once told by Audi tech to never keep a audi out of warranty ! I have to say i kept mine for 3 years out of warranty and it cost me about £8k in maintenance over the time not counting the £4-5k Audi paid out under the Warranty. I recon that having paid £20k for it, add another 10-14 maintenance it cost about £34k for 4 years. I got £5k back for it so it worked out at about £7.5k a year to keep it on the road + consumables like tires etc. £140 a week for 4 years before you even start to drive it..........lol Dont you just love Audi

    I'm not really up on the cost of 1.8T's but 10.5k sounds quite low considering its age and mileage?

    Nice - underwhelmed? I know I have been a little - maybe I'd set my expectation too high. Although its a great car I expected more, and I'm really missing DSG :S

    It is completely standard so I might have to go down the route of a remap quite soon...

    I went for DSG again but i do wonder what all the fuss is about with the S3. I think people who havnt lived with a 3.2 just dont understand. The salesman who took mine out to check it came back and said "Very very quick" with a big grin on his face...lol... wanted to know why i was selling..... Couldn't really tell him
