    Hi Guys.. following on from my last bad luck thread... http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-...ntrol-problem-after-hit-run-*added-pics*.html

    I managed to get all back wheels straight and got it on a hunter machine for alignment... the car drives straight and well (and f-ing nippy due to this lovely cold weather! :busted_cop:)

    HOWEVER

    I still have the ESP in 1st gear problem and its MOT time......

    I replaced broken light level motors/sensors and I fear that they wont be correctly positioned and will fail the MOT

    Is there a kind soul that lives in Kent/Maidstone/Tonbridge/Paddock Wood way.. that has VAGCOM and will be able to reset the lights for me and also just run a fault code check for me?

    Obviously I will pay for your time :)

    Kinda urgent if possible please

    Thank you
    Dave

    Hi Tim, wow, I am literally down the road from you. I am just before the white hart pub. Would appreciate a fault code reset and re scan if you wouldnt mind at some point?

    Headlights passed MOT fine... I was surprised!
