    A3 Sportback (eTron) Center Console and MMI controls ....

    As far as I’m aware the A3 e-tron doesn’t have a custom console the FaceLift MY17-> and Pre face Cars do have different consoles cup holder LED colour was red and the MMI controls had 4 buttons on the PFL cars. Also not all A3s had start stop buttons and you will also need the correct Hill hold...

    Correct in the Face Lift cars MY17-> front bumper and rear bumper and spoiler is a Sport trim in the UK, the side skirts are S-line this is different in the EU and US where an S-Line spoiler could be chosen in other markets and is a drop in replacement, I have swapped mine for an RS3 Spoiler...

    Is it possibly a block heater ? Not direct heating ? What market was the car originally sold in ?

    2 or 4 wheel alignment after lowering?

    4 wheel alignment, make sure you go for a drive first to make sure they have settled properly. Most places should let you come back after a few days too and make sure they are still in spec too.

    Facelift What's in your tool roll?

    Clear pouch on the outside has my locking wheel but key in it, the card is to remove rear light cluster bulb holders, I have a full LED car so have never used it . I do not have a set of tweezers which I assume is for wheel bolt covers, but do have the puller for the wheel centre covers. I...

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4 AO Lack of rim protection ?

    Thanks That’s frustrating and a shame as I was told they had rim protection, the Pirelli Pzeros have epic £1 worth of rim protection, which is great with the country roads around where I live, I’m confused though as I have seen pictures showing significant rim protection on these tyres ?

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4 AO Lack of rim protection ?

    Just had a set of 4 fitted by my Audi service Center AO spec 225/40 ZR18 . They price matched me to QuickFit @ £99 each which I though was a good deal. They seem to be a lot better than the Pirelli Pzeros I had before which lasted only 10k miles and slipped and spun all the time pulling away...

    Blow Off Valve for A3 E-TRON 2015

    Blow Off Valve for A3 E-TRON 2015

    Golf MK7 and MK7.5 are identical drivetrains to the A3 8v e-tron. cosmetically the 8v has an engine cover where the Golf doesn’t …. The new 8y and MK8 also have the same drive train as far as I understand just with a larger battery and possibly some other minor changes . Not sure what you are...

    Bilstein B12 Kit Experience

    Creaking is usually top mounts it's silly not to get them done at the same time. The I think the garage just supplied OEM ones for me. I live rurally and the roads are rubbish, I am considering now trimming the bump stops as they do bottom out occasionally, just haven't got around to it yet...
