    Internal Circulation Setting

    Interesting, so it has sensors to detect whether the air is going to be toxic or stinky? I wonder if it closes automatically if driving near a waste-water treatment plant.

    Internal Circulation Setting

    Thanks for the response. Just to confirm, if it is set to Auto, it will stick and stick to Auto every time you restart the car? What is the difference between Auto and manual anyways? Does Auto occasionally shut it off to allow fresh air in?

    Internal Circulation Setting

    Hello, for those with the dual-zone climate control in the 8Y, does the internal circulation setting (either Auto/Manual) stay after shutting off and restarting the car? or do you have to click that button every time the car is started? Thanks.

    8Y S3 Battery Location

    Yeah. I wonder what Audi changed in the S3 hood for the North American version to have to move the battery to the trunk.

    8Y S3 Battery Location

    Confirmed, for the North American version, the 8Y S3 sedan's battery (8:48 in the video) is in the rear trunk, like the 8V RS3. No more spare tires.

    8Y S3 Battery Location

    I know, but the S3 sedan, as shown in the above picture, also doesn't seem to have the battery under the front hood either, unlike the A3. or I am simply missing the S3 battery location. :)

    8Y S3 Battery Location

    I know for 8V, it is under the hood, unless it is the RS3, but the 8Y seems different, but I am not sure so wanted to confirm. I clearly see the battery in the A3 but not the S3. 8Y S3 Hood 8Y A3 Hood (skip to 0:37)

    8Y S3 Battery Location

    For the 8Y S3 saloon, is the battery in the front or in the trunk?

    S3 vs Golf8R

    I am not saying that the AWD makes any difference in the drag race. I am saying that, for the enthusiast consumer, when considering the Golf 8R vs. the 8Y S3, the power difference is not as important as the difference in AWD system (I mean, Golf R7 used to be mechanically identical to the 8V S3...

    S3 vs Golf8R

    I do not doubt your observation that the TTS feels faster than the S3, but it might have very little to do with the extra 10 hp, but more the form (aerodynamics), ride height (less squat), and weight (TTS should be quite a bit lighter than S3). I guess my point is, the 10 hp between 8Y S3 and...

    S3 vs Golf8R

    IMHO, I doubt the small difference in weight and HP/torque would be significant. Instead, the key difference is the AWD system. Golf R gets the torque vectoring system that is like the RS3, whereas the S3 gets the haldex. Golf R clearly wins in this department. That said, if I were in the...

    Keyless Entry Setting

    Thank you very much for the response. It is good to hear that the 8Y has the ability to disable that via the MMI, unlike the 8V. So, I guess the setting is like the A4 then. How about the boot? Is there option in the MMI to enable/disable that?

    Keyless Entry Setting

    Thanks for the response. Do you have the convenience key option and does the option to disable the convenience key exist in MMI as described in the original post?

    Keyless Entry Setting

    For the newer A4/A5, Q5 and above, in the car's MMI setting one can go to Menu>Vehicle>Vehicle Settings>Central Locking and then uncheck the box that says "open with convenience key" to disable keyless entry.. Is there such option in the 8Y A3/S3 in the MMI or does it still use the same 8V...

    Did you paint the front grill surround? How does that hold up?
