    A3 2.0 T S-Line Quattro tyres ?

    Vredestein ultrac sessanta for me, done about 5k and are looking good. Reasonable compromise between price and performance if you ask me.

    Panel filters

    If you're sticking with the paper filter or even switching to a higher performance filter, be sure to replace it or give it a shake out fairly regularly, you'd be amazed at how much crap these things pick up.

    PIAA DRL Bulb blown up.

    I had this myself, didn't. Fit them properly and they shattered when I tried to take out.

    Improved Handling Without Lowering Or Massive Loss In Comfort

    Tyres, too many to choose from :S

    I put Vredestein Ultrac Sessantas on my 18s when I couldn't find any F1s. A bit cheaper and just as grippy. Will have to see how the wear goes as only done a couplke of 1000 miles on them. Not too noisy either

    head unit

    Google is your friend. Its the standardised size of the stereo head unit. most 'regular' afternarket headunits are single din and those with large screens e.g. Sat nav units, are double din

    The A3 is going! & Bluefin query

    You can have the bluefin unit reset by Bluefin for a fee then the new owner can have a map loaded. Not sure of the cost though.
