    I did want them to look a bit whiter than the OEM's, but more importantly be a bit more usefull - I find the OEM bulbs a bit weak on the actual use of shining light onto the road in bad/foggy conditions. I drive all over the UK on many A and B roads including country lanes and I do like to see...

    Swapped over the original Bridgestones from rear to front and put new Pirelli PZero's on back - much better :) Can't tell you how much of a difference it makes. Back to happy motoring again.

    They don't feel soft and grippy, but if they are then maybe they'll only last 10k so I get better one's next time.

    Anyone on here had replacement tyres on standard 18" rims ? Mine came with Bridgestone Potenza 225/40/18 92Y but after 20k I've just replaced both front tyres with Pirelli PZero Rosso ZR Asymmetric. Now feels like its running on black ice. Doesn't feel as stable on motorway and lacks feel on A...

When you get round to placing your order it's always a case of...have I made the right choice, should I have gone for xx instead - after clocking up the miles it...

    IPOD dock in glove box is pretty ****, basically use it to charge the IPOD. As far as playing stuff - forget it. You can create 5 playlists on your IPOD then play "find the play lists" on your head unit. To play the IPOD through the system you press the CD button once to play CD's, twice to...

    How much is this Denison Kit (I know there's various options) but I would just like to play my Ipod by choosing the options through DIS as above. And is it a DIY fit or dealer/shop fit ?

    I ordered Sound Pack (which upgrades CD to 6x and includes IPOD dock) as you say it's pretty **** for a £200 option - Just use the AUX socket - its free !!

    I still say that my theory about the majority of UK deliveries for new A3 BE's around new plates in March and Sept is correct..

    I know of a few company's who've taken the A3 off their company car lists due to the long delivery times..

    At the time of ordering my car the 140bhp was around £68/mth whereas the 170 was around £130 /mth with Quattro at around £172 /mth. As you say the 140 bhp is 13% P11D value whereas the 170 is 17% P11D. Then the maintenance figs were higher on 170 too. I'm not knocking the 170 (or quattro's) but...
