    For Sale 17" Alloys with winter tyres (4 + 1)

    I have a total of 5 of these available: A set of 4, refurbished last year, and on the car for less than 500 miles this. I got them painted grey to match the centre caps. The advantage is they don't show the dirt much! They were originally off an A4 (part number 8K0 601 025B) and as such have a...

    Facelift No phone ringtone available

    I was in the car yesterday when the phone rang. Except it didn’t. The radio sound stopped, and I glanced at the MMI to see if I’d lost the DAB signal, and to my surprise saw I had an incoming call (my phone stays on silent most of the time). When I got home I checked the settings. Apparently my...

    Wheel Centres question

    Right, I have a set of winter wheels which I had with my A4, so they have a 66.5mm spigot diameter, and a 60mm diameter hole for the 5-arm centre caps to clip into. I've fitted 57.1mm spigot rings so wheels fit the S3. I'm pondering doing a stud and nut conversion, and for that it's likely the...

    Spacers, what a minefield!

    Well maybe exaggerating a bit :grinning: But after googling on and off for a couple of days, and deciding 10mm all round (on my 19x8j ET49’s) would be doable (I’m going to use the Racingline stud conversion, and that maxes out at 10mm) I started looking at spacers. Decided H&R hub entries are...

    Facelift S3 minimum rim size 17”

    A subject that comes up reasonably often, but for those who’s search-fu is weak, I just checked if the winter rims from my A4 would fit the 2018 S3. They do, with about 10mm spare over the front calliper, so enough room for balance weights (mine have all fallen off, guess the wheels were damp...

    Peeling S3 black window surround trim

    So I have a 2018 S3 bought from a dealer with 14k on the clock. Whilst filling it up yesterday, I noticed the black covering on the rear window surround trim peeling off to reveal the silver finish underneath. My question is, do all S3’s have black window trims? Somehow I doubt it’ll be covered...

    Convenience turn signal FL S3

    I was experimenting with VCDS for the first time, and had a couple of successes, with oil temp on DIS and exhaust flaps open, but I failed to find the option to change the number of cycles the convenience turn signal makes - I wanted to try it on 5. I’d seen this Adaptation of the turn signal...

    Vehicle data sticker

    When I got my car, the dealer had lost the original handbook, so no data sticker to see there (they eventually provided a replacement book, but no wallet, cheapskates). Any suggestion as to where in the car the other half might be? Looked under boot floor, and under space saver.

    AGM Battery charging

    After several weeks of occasional short journeys during which the stop/start function didn’t, today I took the car out for the best part of an hour up and down the local bypass, as well as visits to 2 local towns. The battery still isn’t sufficiently charged for the stop/start to operate. I’m...
