    Unhappy Straight steering wheel

    Hi I am new to the Forum although I am on my second a3 black edition . I bought my second 1 in December and the steering wheel was not straight so it went in to the local Audi dealer to get sorted that was in December . Got the car back and the wheel is still not straight the next available date was Thursday collected the car last night and the service manager said there was not a problem everything was fine he even test drove the car with me in telling me the steering was as straight as they could get it and it as the kind of tyres I have on the front . He told me to swap the tyres over but I could not see why this would make any difference but have done it and it's still not straight . It of course looks worse because of the flat bottom . I can't understand why the dealer can't set the wheel straight and then set the tracking . Any idea would be good .

    Tell them to do it again, its not difficult and has nothing to do with tyres! If need be sit in the car and set the wheel straight yourself and then tell them to sort the toe out!

    Alternatively give mee your nice flat bottom wheel and you can have my round one, wont be as noticeable then

    Get a 4 wheel laser alignment done first and then check the wheel. If it's still out then get a VAG independent garage to set the wheel straight. It's really easy to do with the right tools but you must check alignment first.

    The wheel alignment is fine it's just the steering wheel is not straight . Just a bit disappointed that the dealer says its straight they make you feel like your being a pain but it should be right I will be taking it back again on Monday !!!
