    I took a trip to the stealers in a brand new 8P3 tdi 140 BE (courtesy car) after getting a call to ask what was on the headlights because they couldnt get them to pass the pattern test.

    Had to rip my LaminX off. Gutted.

    Hence to say I now have my car back, new ball joint, new brake pad warning light cable and 12 months MOT!

    And i bought a new toolbox for my installer tools for the boot...

    Set it to the shortest throw as it's adjustable, makes the gear change very tight and firm.

    I like it and happy with the price

    Saw on a thread the other day to remove a3 grill it was 3 torx screws on the top and then you pull it of as it's clipped on. Not sure if it's the same on the s3 but worth a shot. Good luck.

    Actually managed to give the car a quick wash this evening, after the
    missus had finished running around in it all day. This hosepipe ban does my brain in! Rough calculations, I used 6 x 10 litre watering cans to pre rinse, then 4x 15 litre buckets for the wash stage, then another 4 watering cans to rinse off. That's 160 litres of water, which I think is about the same as leaving a hose running for about an hour and a half!

    when you say tight and firm is that a good thing? as it sounds uncomfortable...
    also send that link to the guide my way please... all this talk of short shifters is making me want to do it on mine now.
