Just got myself an S3 a couple of weeks ago, and have had a huge grin on my face ever since - it's great fun. Been looking around here for a month or so and have found some useful info - although I've not posted before I have found the answers to many of my questions here in previous posts, so thanks. However, I have a question of my own that I hope someone can help me with.
Whilst on the M25 at the weekend some sort of debris came out from under the car in front of me and unfortunately I didn't have time to avoid it myself. It went under the passenger side wheels and has taken off a small piece of bodywork. Anyway, as it has not caused any damage other than taking this piece of bodywork off, I was hoping to be able to get hold of the part and fix it on to the car myself, rather than going to the expense of getting Audi to do it.
The advice I'm hoping someone can give me is... Does anyone know where I can get hold of the part, how much would it cost and is it easy to fit (it looks like it from what I can see - a simple case of sliding the front in and clicking it into place)? Or should I just get the Audi boys to sort it out?
The exact part is the small plastic bit immediately in front of the left rear (passenger side) wheel, that starts at the bottom of the wheel arch and goes forward from there about 6 inches, in my case it needs to be Ming Blue. It's the bit just below the grey sill, if you see what I mean. I appologise for the highly "un-technical" description I have given, but it's the best I can do, I hope you undestand which bit I mean. I would put a picture up, but I don't have access to my computer at the moment!!
Anyway, thanks very much for any help you can give, it would be much appreciated!!
P.S. Having had a search around on another subject entirely, I gather that Mobil 1 is the best oil to use in an S3, is this correct? Thanks.
