    RNS-E problems in my new S3...

    Sounds like a unit problem to me.. If you have a mate with 1, then i'd remove you gps reciever and try it on theirs and vice versa (or even the full unit) even attend a meet and ask someone else, you'll find some people can be more than helpful if you take your unit keys with you. The glovebox...

    S3 or 3.2 quattro

    This is the age old question of these cars... The noise from the V6 is perfect, especially with an aftermarket exhaust.. However, they look a bit drab imo unless you actually fit the S3 bodykit to it, which kinda defeats the purpose.. Tuning is limited unless you go forced induction as people...

    No boot unlock button.. Help

    If you unlock the door from the side panel.. Maybe even press it twice, the boot should be unlocked and just pressed to open on the actual handle.. There is no way I can think of to actually make it open like on the keyfob without actually doing that on the key...
