    Quick question:

    When I press the left dash stick, I'm told that my next service is due in 2000 miles, but pressing it again is what is worrying me....

    It shows a RED oil dripping symbol, then a RED water temp symbol, then a yellow brake pad light, yellow petrol light and finally a yellow "OK".

    My friend has an S3 and he says that his doesn't do this. Is this normal for an a3?...Surely a red oil and water light must be a bad thing...?!

    Thanks.

    The S3 should have it, its nothing to worry about, it is just a health check, what year is your mates S3, if its a pre facelift then it may not have the DIS option for it??
