    Got my A3 and did my first mod!

    Hi guys,

    finally purchased my A3 the other day, and am now the proud owner of a 2004 2.0TDi sport

    Excellent condition, runs sweet as a nut and the interior is like new! Came with nokia bluetooth system as well

    Here are a few pics:





    And then today, with a little help from a friend, i got round to fitting my TT-S steering wheel :D Love it!




    Any idea how i get the airbag light to go off? And if there are any ways to get the controls to work?

    Cheers

    Jordan

    Ask 'NHN' or 'mattandrew' about airbag light, Matt fitted mine and I've got no errors, vag com will sort it no doubt!

    I think becuase you took the old airbag off, it regeistered as no airbag hence the airbag light.

    If you reset the fault code - you should be ok.

    You can do this with vagcom or you leave the battery off for 30mines but you will loose lots of other settings in the car.

    Id personally get somenone with vagcom to check the dtcs and then if the fault code doesnt reset, you could find out what the prob is....

    Nice look car mate and wheel looks sweet.

    Any other mods planned ??

    I'm laughing my arse off right now, I scrolled down to the first interior pic and thought 'You need to fit a FBMFSW there mate!' and then I scrolled further!

    Reason for airbag light & the controls non working is because you need to install an updated steering wheel control module & slip ring, VCDS needed, slap down 228.75 & you could have VCDS on the group buy list

    But still you need those 2 parts aswell as coding, fancy an rns-e upgrade aswell with newer style buttons & alum dials?

    Damn your only in surrey so not to far from me, so many options, lol

    You PM me & I will add you to list mate, also PM me with email address as I have RNS-E & I'm still trying to locate a wheel for you, but someone got one for 300 lately so just wondering if we can source one for you or if would be cheaper for you to buy it directly of ebay sellers, PM me anyway your ideas.

    Thanks.
