    It's the moding bug that bites.
    Being around all these nice cars coupled with the gentle encouragement of forum members to spend your money takes an iron will to resist lol!

    Definitely, not cheap but then neither is an S3.
    I have one and I'm only up the road in Bradford if you need a scan.

    I know batley, next to birstall got a mate who lives in gildersome (not too far from you). I'm in Leeds 9 (osmonthorpe, wykebeck, holton moor area) about 15 mins from you.

    I would recommend ross tech cable and software to anyone, great investment and really does save you money and makes money too when you get to grips with it . I put an ad on gumtree that I would diagnose peoples motors and do other bits with it, doing that has paid for the cable lol

    That sounds like an idea I been looking into it tbh just been told to stay away just in case I mess the car up if I don't know what am doing and what price am I looking at possibly for one?

    To diagnose and clear codes etc you cant bugger owt up. If you go to ross tech website or even on here there is a wealth of information. So far with mine I have reset the throttle body, turned on the auto lock for the doors, done a crash simulation lol, tested abs and so on......... To do that I followed instrustions from ASN ans ross tech.

    As for cost I think someone on here will give you the cheepest option or retailler.
