    Shell v power nitro?

    Just got an email through from shell, touting their new "vpower nitro plus" fuel which apparently will be in forecourts soon.. I've only ever used vpower since owning the RS and so was quite interested, particularly in the octane rating, which after some googling I can't seem to find any info...

    Rs3 cr@pped itself

    Ok.. I'll be brief. My RS has done 2000 miles, the other day with no warning it lost all power and rolled to a stop whilst poodling along warming her up. Turned her off, then back on. Ran for the rest of the day without missing a beat. Scanned with vcds when I got home - fuel pressure regulator...

    Worth the wait...

    So, after a long, long wait, my RS has finally arrived. You guys on here have kept me going with your pictures, write ups and discussions... But there's nothing like the real thing. Pictures just don't do justice. I went for misano with "those" wheels :laugh: I know they're very much a marmite...

    Audi Quattro GmbH tour

    As the title suggests, I have just got off the 'phone with the Audi factory at Neckarsulm, and have arranged myself a tour of their Quattro factory..... I am hoping that I can actually be there when my RS is on the production line, but That's gonna require some careful timing! Call me an anorak...

    RS buckets body coloured backrest

    So.... At the moment I have spec'd buckets with exclusive quilted stitching.. I have seen a few pics of the buckets now, and there is one minor thing I don't like (everyone feel free to groan, I know I'm fussy!).. On the backrest of the seat, the centre part comes in piano finish, but the side...

I know it's not massively...

    Launch colour

    Hey hey.... After much debating over colour.. (sepang and mica hot favourites) I decided on misano with the marmite wheels.. I've based this decision on reading a thread from a guy that bought his original rs2 in nogaro because that was the colour Audi fielded at the Geneva launch - similarly...

    My Audi A3 attacked by a roller-skate!!!

    So I got a jeep for the winter to save my Audi getting ruined, mainly because it's very rural where I live and extremely muddy! Got it home from Middlesex yesterday and parked it in front on my a3 :lmfao: I gotta take these wheels off!!! Shame of it is, the guy had the original wheels...

    Nigel Appreciation Society

    Well.. I was very happy with my 2011 A3.. But the interior always felt like it was missing something(s)...! I went for every extra option Audi offered.. Except for the tech pack.. I just felt it was too much money at the time. Now I've finally got around to sorting my moment of being a tightwad...

At this point what can only be described as "the badgernator" appeared in front of me! It was lying right in...

    Audi customer service opinions

    I've not been a member of this forum very long, but it seems like a lot of members have had poor treatment from the dealerships in terms of customer service.. I've owned several audis but up til this year never a new one. I've gotta say, the customer service they gave me was absolutely top...

    Stage 1 Button!!

    OK.. So I have A3 2.0 TFSI. I would really like to have REVO stage 1 map (or equivalent)... I have previously had some experience with Revo on my S3 and TT, but with both had to use an SPS controller to change from the standard map to Stage 1/2/3 etc.. This involves mucking around turning the...
