    Talking Much better

    Don't really know why i'm making this, possibly boredom and happiness

    Got my A3 back yesterday after having a few problems with brakes, vibration upon idle and DSG being a bit jerky

    Not going to go into the story about the brakes, but a new flywheel has solved all my vibration and DSG problems

    Car is ultra smooth upon idle, wouldn't even notice the engine was on, and acceleration is nice and smooooooooooth

    Just thought i would share a success story with the forum for once

    Tomorrow i'm getting my bluetooth kit for the RNSE fitted, rear 24mm whiteline ARB and hopefully front H&R 28mm ARB as well as auto dimming auto folding mirrors with some help from NHN - he's such a good lad

    We're changing over the brakes aswell for safety reasons, while i'm in "talks" with Amersham Audi and possibly Audi UK about the state of the brakes when they sold the car to me

    I'll post detailed pics of the **** condition the discs and pads are in, after only owning the car 3 weeks, i'm VERY suprised that they sold the car to my with the brakes on 85% and 90% wear and needing new discs

    So ye

    Good to know the car is nice and smooth now!
    I got a DMF replacement due soon. It's vibrating when warm and idle, especially when I stop downhill.
