    I have for sale 4 x 10spoke titanium matt alloy wheels (OEM option F38). Taken off my 2014 S3 8V which was sold nearly two years ago, currently clearing out the garage! These are OE wheels, 3 of which are like new (pictures showing very minor scuffs to 1 wheel) and all 4 have Dunlop Wintersport...

    Audi RS3 Mrc

    If you can smell oil when stationary imo it is either blowing out the exhaust or leaking onto something hot...........probably the latter meaning you have a leak somewhere presumably under pressure if you can't see any drips.

    Does Audi R8 have a Lamborghini engine?

    Yes as said earlier, Lamborghini use the Audi 5.2l V10 engine as Audi were not comfortable using the Gallardo 5.0l V10. Loads of parts are interchangeable but the Lambo badged ones can be way more expensive.

    Performance and power of cars going forward?

    the most environmentally friendly car you can have is the one you already own.........in my case a 4 ringed 5.2l v10 :) the energy and emissions involved in producing a new car, irrespective of its powertrain, way exceeds the emissions that come out of your current one.........i would link to a...

    R8 V10 (4S) - Engine milage/susceptibility

    Mileage is not an issue on these things, the highest miler in the UK is something like 250k miles, I live in europe and mileages are generally much higher than the UK and are not mollycoddled like they can be in the UK. I use mine most days all year round and it lives outside, it is an Audi and...

    Manual S3 or RS3?

    ^^ what he said. Neither are fun, both are effective. In that price bracket I would be looking at a lightly used 140i or Fiesta ST as a fun car.

    Audi tracker

    Folks, does anybody know how to link the audi tracker (which I think is vodafone) in the car to the app? I am not deliberately playing dumb (but am feeling it!) but have confirmation the tracker is active, i have the app but have no idea how to link them. Thanks

    Dont get me wrong me too but governments/tax/manufacturers will make the decision for you and I suspect it aint that far away.

    5 cylinder Formentor [emoji23][emoji23]

    I am struggling to get over the volumes of high power cars coming to the market whilst we all know petrol cars are no longer their strategy, check out the Tesla S Plaid which will blow away any petrol power. Saying that long live non 4cyl ice :) I quite like the look of that Cupra, in the...

    Has anyone traded their RS3 in for an R8?

    ^^ the current gen2 facelift does not due to the regs so the sweet spot is the my17-19 which did, option code was OP8 and I wouldn't buy an R8 without it. I have yet to hear an after market exhaust come close to the noise (ok after market can be noisier and defo much lighter but there is more...

    Has anyone traded their RS3 in for an R8?

    ^^ I went from a 2014 manual Audi S3 stage1 to a 2017 R8 with OE optional sports exhaust...........sounds proper dirty and well beyond any 5cyl could muster. Magnificent machine it is, i use mine all year in all weather, lives outside and averaging around 19mpg, can squeeze 25mpg on a cruise on...
