    Reverse the polarity of electric hood switch?

    Still looking for a fix on this.

    Reverse the polarity of electric hood switch?

    I know virtually nothing about VCDS, beyond it being an application that can alter the car's software. As per the title, I'm wondering if it can be used to reverse the action of the electric hood switch on my 2014 (8V) A3 cab? My wife and I have always found pulling the switch to lower the hood...

    A3 Cabriolet bike rack

    I'm looking for a rack to carry 3 bikes on the back of my A3 cab. The only two I've found that are said to fit are the Saris Bones and the Saris Sentinel, with the Bones getting pretty good reviews, the Sentinel rather less so. Just wondering if anyone knows of any alternatives? Also, is there...

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    I was just going to put new ones on the front as the rears have loads of tread left. By the time another set of fronts have worn down, all four should be ready for replacement.

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    I've no doubt they're great, I loved my PS3s, but the rear Contis have plenty of life left in them yet and I don't want to mix brands. By the time the fronts are next due, the rears probably will be too and I may well replace all four with Michelins or whatever else is well regarded at that...

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    I live in Gibraltar, so probably no need for the Crossclimate. The temperatures almost never drop into single figures and we certainly don't get any frost.

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    I did think it a little strange that Audi supplied the SC2s on a brand new 2014 car when the SC3 and 5 were both out by then, but that's what it came with. Having said that, confusingly, you can still buy the SC2, 3, 5 and 6 brand new today! I ran Michelin PS3s on my Cougar and was very...

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    Nah, I got all the fast stuff out of my system in this. Anyway, about theses tyres... anyone know whether I should go for another set of Sport Contact 2s or change to Premium Contact 6s?

    Nowt up with that, they look to be lovely cars.

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    The car is currently showing around 33,500 miles but I would estimate that we covered about maybe 3000 or 4000 of those on the winter wheels we had.

    Our move to Gibraltar is complete, I took this last week whilst we were out shopping in La Linea.

    Tyre time: Continental Sport Contact 2 or Premium Contact 6?

    My front tyres are ready for replacement. The car came fitted with Continental Sport Contact 2s in 225/40/R18 Y92 flavour and I've been perfectly happy with them, in terms of wear and both wet and dry grip, so the 'easy option' would be to just have the tyre shop fit the same again. I notice...

    Xenon Bulb Change & Front bumper removal

    Finally tackled this yesterday, 5 hours from start to finish! I'm sure someone more skilled would have done it far quicker, but I do at least now have my LHD headlights installed and the satisfaction of knowing I've saved £hundreds that Audi would have charged for the job.
