    Leather seats

    Thanks everyone for your replies. Bad treatment crossed my mind but the idea of it being water damage would make sense, especially due to the pattern. Will ask the detailers if it’s something they’ve seen and or know how to fix. Otherwise I will find a leather specialist I think as I don’t...

    Leather seats

    Hi all, I picked up my 67 plate A3 this week and it’s in amazing condition. However, there are some weird markings on the heated leather seats. Has anyone seen this before or know what could cause it? Wondering if the heating element could cause this kind of pattern as it’s so symmetrical...

    A couple of questions

    Yeh I do have the steering wheel controls. I did put it all together and took it apart like three times to make sure everything was connected ok but I will do that again in the morning to quadrupole check! I was hoping it was going to be simple! Yeh sorry I should have said, no codes pop up at...

    A couple of questions

    Hi. Thanks for the prompt reply. I bought the controlPRO CP2 vag52 adapter. I’m guessing this might be where I have gone wrong? Yeh I believe they did as I never noticed them not working until now. I had the main block of wires that plug into the hu, I connected the blue for the amp, there was...

    A couple of questions

    hi all, I’ve recently bought my third A3 (2010 1.8t) apparently I can’t get enough of them. First off (and I have searched all over) I have swapped out the navigation plus unit with a pioneer sph-10bt as using an sd card to listen to music isn’t my thing and didn’t wanna spend hundreds so got...

    Windscreen washers

    Great information. I have the three single jets and the drivers side one day is blocked and the next day it's not. So frustrating! Been looking to get these changed. So it look like the VW jets are better than the A6 ones..

    Carbon Collective

    I use their Hybrid coating. I also have the platinum wheel and glass coatings, but I found using hybrid on its own is enough for me and doesn't take as long for general cleaning. I can't compare it to anything else tho, I use other brands to do everything else when washing my car.

    Anyone help me with this wire?

    Hi, So today I saw a wire hanging down just behind my bumper, I thought it was a wire for my fog lights but this doesn't seem to be the case as they're all attached. The part number seems to be a general connector for many things and I can't seem to see where it attaches to. Any help would...

    Fix one thing, another thing breaks..

    I'm trying to do this today. Will this be a case of having to take my inlet manifold off to gain access or is there a clever way someone knows about? I really need to get this done so help would be much appreciated.

    Fix one thing, another thing breaks..

    Hey, today I fitted a silicone crankcase breather hose as the original one had a nice hole in it. As I was changing this the top of the lower breather hose pipe just snapped off. So I have ordered that part I'm just wondering if it's simple to fit. I presume I can undo the plate in front of...

    Steering rack / binding brakes?
