    Which Tyres are best for S3 ? (again)

    Hi Ppl, This question has probably been answered a few times before (but can't find any latest answers). I need two new front tyres and have a few questions: 1) Is it best to put new tyres on rear of car and move rears forward? Or with AWD does it not really matter? Still assume that most...

    Surprise finding with the RNS-E ! Neat little trick!

    I was thinking the other day why some people's screens start up on sat-nav, some on radio etc. and from a previous thread found out that there's no way to change it. So I was fiddling with the RNS-E the other day and found that there is a way (and apologies if most ppl know this or if it's in...

    Quick question about fuel cap

    I have a question about the fuel cap. Mine is attached to the car however there isn't a place to hold it when it's off, it just dangles. It looks like there is something on the inside of the fuel cap door although it looks like it may have sheared off..can anyone please take a phot of theirs...

    Small 'niggles' on S3

    Hi Everyone, I'm a bit of a newbie to this forum, having just come from a 3-door fully-loaded BMW to a more practical 5-door S3. Overall impression is that I love driving it however there are a few minor niggles inside the car (which I think BMW might be better at) and I was wondering if these...

    What RNS-E Unit to get?

    Thanks! Well, the dealer of the car I'm interested in said that there is voice control for the phone. So that means it does have SDS, however from what I understand it could just be phone SDS and not full SDS? Sorry for all the q's on here, I'm also a newbie. 8-)

    RNS-E mk1 vs mk2 ?

    Anyone know what year they changed the MK1 to a MK2 ? Been looking online at A3's and S3's from March 2010 ->> which have Sat Nav but not sure if these have the newer or older models. Thanks.
