    What's my issue then?

    I have the same symptoms as you but had forgotten to mention it to my tuner. He however picked up that I need a new thermostat so it's booked in for a few weeks time.

    Wheel ideas!

    If you want something a bit unusual then try collecting 4 front alloys from cars like C63, Vantage V8 etc - they look great but you need the patience to collect the two sets of fronts hence not many people have them. Whilst LM's look great there are too many replicas around. Proper ones are...

    APR upgrades are out now!

    The tuner that did my Revo stage 2+ back in Oct '14 put the LC on my manual gearbox without any charge... Said it was a little surprise for me when I picked it up! Whilst it is phenomenal I've only used it 3 times for fear of wrecking the drivetrain even with a Sachs clutch setup

    S3 8p honeycomb grill

    As far as I'm aware there is nothing on the market for the pre facelift S3's. Xenonz do something for the pre facelift A3 but the fitting is different for the S3. Similarly the facelift S3 is different fitment to pre facelift S3. I believe you're only option is to go down the route I went...

    Anyone running 19" 8.5J ET43 Alloys or similar?

    Here we go - fresh back from the garage. Drove it for 45mins to work and no rubbing which is great news! The Eagle F1s don't appear to have too much stretch so quite pleased with them. Think coilovers are next on the list after its service and new thermostat in a couple of weeks. Thank you...

    How do you tell if these are genuine?

    This! Also the price being asked might be a give away. Reps will be 300-400ish Genuines likely to be at least double that

    Agree - leave it on. Looks too plain without them on

    AUDI A3 B pillar trim.

    It is over 3 years old unfortunately. If the 5 door is the same as the 3 door then you need to drill out the rivets that hold them in place and then put new rivets in with a rivet gun to attach the new ones. Rivets are located behind the door seal - pull it back and you'll see them.

    Awesome @JayMc thanks so much for your help! I'll get some tyres on order and get these wheels fitted! Probably need lowering after that... Haha

    Essential options

    Haha sorry we couldn't help there! I'm 6'3" and would say the buckets are the most comfy I've had in a car - no issues with them at all. They were absolutely the thing I wouldn't compromise on when looking for my car! You could of course always retro fit them quite easily - just make sure...
