    Facelift Front Bumper scratched really bad. How much would it cost to fx it? :(

    Well - if money is tight the answer is to leave it. I would have a go at polishing it out. Probably won’t remove it but would improve.

    I wish our Costco did petrol. We have to pay around £1.30/litre round here.

    Cruise control not maintaining speed going downhill

    Cruise control doesn’t use the brakes (I think). So it should cut the throttle going down a steep hill. And also change down for engine braking. Not sure how eco mode changes things, but it doesn’t use engine braking so would assume that it could run away down hill under cruise control.

    Bought used a3 have some issues.

Wipers - are you sure the intermittant setting on the top of the control arm is not on the left, which makes the wiping very intermittant. Has the car had an accident which meant the dashboard etc has...

    Drive Select and Alarm

    Seen posts on here that suggest fuel consumption is higher with eco. I hate it anyway - don’t like the feeling of coasting. And you have to use the brakes more.
