    So the S3 has moved on...

    I feel your pain, Thanks to the Lockdown I did the same with my beloved RS3 earlier in the year, 1,000 miles in just over 12 months. I keep wondering if it was the right move and I do miss her! I bought a 2015 8V S3 as a stop gap so to speak as I used to have one and I adored it, so that fills...

    B&O Cracking Sound

    I agree, I know it won't and never could, but apparently there is a bug where it 'tries' so it could be something to do with that. Will report back once tried different phones and then like you say speak to @DJAlix who I need to get a hold of anyway for some retrofitting. And then I'll go back...

    B&O Cracking Sound

    Well I sent the car back where I got it from and as expected they couldn't find an issue, but it's still doing it! I tried on Youtube music and it still did it, I also tried deleting the looseless format and redownloading the normal ones, it still did it (I know BT should play the lesser data...

    B&O Cracking Sound

    No but I shall :) It might be something to do with the new looseless audio on Apple Music as they are bigger files. We shall see.

    B&O Cracking Sound

    It is, I agree, but I have never had an issue ever before, and it 'should' work fine. I have tried a couple of phones, albeit all iPhones, It's very frustrating, will try to investigate further, wasn't sure if anyone else had experienced it that's all :)

    B&O Cracking Sound

    Hi All, I have a 2015 S3 with the B&O system and recently have noticed that when connected to bluetooth at least, the sound above a certain volume sounds like a poorly tuned radio. When the phone is plugged in, the issue seems to resolve itself, but bluetooth should still surely work fine, it...

    Rising used car prices.

    No. What if they offered you prices you didn't want to accept. I'd assume you'd be obliged to sell once accepted an offer though.

    Remap with Warranty

    It's cracking to be fair, doesn't feel too much different to the RS up to 90mph ish power wise. Definitely makes me miss it that little bit less.

    Remap with Warranty

    Yeah i'm enjoying it, main reason is my Indy who i trust and have used for years is a revo dealer, so it was best of both worlds for me.

    Remap with Warranty

    No I agree mate. But this is a car with no warranty anyway. I was thinking of a savings pot as you say. But I am looking into getting it remapped. This just struck me as good because it's similar to the remap I was going to do anyway, but it also provides a 2 year warranty with it, so...

    Remap with Warranty

    Completely agree. But buying a car out of warranty like I am anyway. It actually seems to give me more protection than using another provider. And whilst £8k doesn’t go all the long way. It’s a long way and a big dent in and potential issues. I do need to read through in detail but it does seem...

    Remap with Warranty

    I have yeah. Not done a full interrogation. But on skimming through it looks good tbh. limited value wise, to £8k for engine for example. Limited to a max of 60k miles at times of any claim and a few other bits. But it does seemingly look like the ABT warranties they offer on maps in germany...

    Remap with Warranty

    Black S3. Reg: RV15 MFP

    I did a full check and it is also from a main dealer. I just had a few concerns around it's history. A missing MOT and gap between services (Time wise not mileage wise) It seems as though the car was SORN though so it all ended up making sense. Dealer said they would bedoing a full major service...

    Black S3. Reg: RV15 MFP

    Very fair, the concerns are just because I don't "know" it's frustrating as may be a perfect reason for it, but it missed an MOT for example, and has only had one full service, but mileage wise that could work out as being ok.

    Black S3. Reg: RV15 MFP

    2014-2016 S3

    Morning Guys, I am looking at buying an S3 (2014-2016) I just wondered if other than the obvious anyone had any sites they have used and had a good experience with? Or if you know of any cars for sale that have a decent history? Ideally I am after an automatic with comfort back, privacy glass...
