    I had a look at this and I can see no way for the rear sun roof to open. It appears to be fixed in place.

    Would love to be proved wrong but I just don't see any way for this to happen.

    I did the same thing after I read Xpanama's post. I don't see how it would be possible to open...

    In my old Fiesta there is a reset button on the control stalk, if you hold it down you get a diagnostic menu. Gives you all sorts of crazy stuff, can test your instrument lights, dials etc... Is there a similar diagnostic utility on the A3?

    Doesn't work on my 2010 TDI either. Maybe cause I live in the states and they take away all the cool stuff

    Can you be more descriptive? I haven't been able to find this "box" to check.

    You have to go into the long code helper under coding.

    Inline with the subject heading, I didn't know my S3 engine drank so much oil!!! I've almost finished the 1 litre can provided with the car. I've only done 8K of miles!

    Check it out with other S3 owners kkp..My 3.2 has never needed any oil top up in 50k miles i have done with it ?

    Before this i had a VW VR6 4motion and VW said a litre /1000 miles was acceptable !!! and thats what it drank
    Ibis white Revo S3 and now matching Vivaro LWB HR 2900 :-)

    Many people are alive because its illegal to shoot them.

    Cheers Paddy. So my calculations being correct, it is drinking a litre about every 1500 Miles atm.
