    Cambelt change

    Sounds like you have exactly the same car as me. However, mine is used everyday in all weathers and has done 87,000.

    A3 Wheel bearing and Shock gone - under warranty?

    A3 Wheel bearing and Shock gone - under warranty?

    Hi all, My 64 plate A3 in at Audi for MOT today. Just had a couple of advisories saying that N/S/R shock absorber is weeping and advise replacing at £263.95 INC VAT. Also, N/S/F wheel bearing has slight rumble. Cost to replace £318.70 INC VAT Should either of these be replaced under warranty...

    Aluminium trim around windows real?

    I think they are plastic. The "silver" trim around my windows has started to go 'milky' and there's not a thing I can do to bring them back to their original brightness.
