    Hi,

    Im new to the forums and new to owning the A3 on a 59 plate. Just wanted to share some feedback with my A3 to see if any of you might be able to point me in the right direction.

    When I bought the car I took it on a long test drive and all was well. After owning it a few weeks I noticed that when stopping at junctions the car would drop to idle a it should but the car would wobble. This wobble hasn't got ant worse or any better. I have tried some engine cleaner and using a better diesel but its still the same. From full I am averaging 500 miles a tank, again I don't know if this is good or bad.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Will.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply, do you think its worth getting it plugged into a diag machine? Does the MPG sound about right?

    Many Thanks

    Will

    Get someone to check mechanically & electronically, preferably a vag specialist, check mounts 1st.

    I dont know your driving styles etc so couldn't say, but 500 a tank isn't bad.
