    I have the double din on my 2004 Audi A3 TDI and looking at getting a new climate control unit and buttons to freshen it up due to the common worn and marked buttons. I was thinking of changing to the newer climate control unit (chrome switches) and the newer bank of switches located above...

    poor starting

    Worth testing your battery. I suffered poor starting a little while back thought it may be Glow plugs. Put my CTEK battery conditioner on my battery to feed it some life but it came up (!) showing it was DEAD! I purchased a new Bosch S4 battery for my A3 2.0 TDI and now it kicks over first...

    To Remap or to sell?

    Cheers Ben, only just seen this part of your post and a very good review. Im still very much undecided! What do you prefer as a daily looking back? I dont want to regret selling the Audi as I know the car is very sound, no expense has been spared over the past 2 years with - new turbo, head...

    To Remap or to sell?

    Thanks. I really am not planning to do any mods to this car as I know it's a slippery slope, hence why I thought I'd just jump in a Clio Cup. Has got it all except the obvious. Handling was my biggest persuasion with the 197 Cup. This is my daily driver/ work horse and I although I look after...

    To Remap or to sell?

    Jeez.. How easily persuaded am I !! Thanks for the input chaps. You may have saved me from making a bit mistake. I have even thought of upgrading to a newer model A3 to avoid going the route of the very tempting French rubbish, giving me a change. Is the remap of the 140 that dramatic? Does...

    To Remap or to sell?

    ... thats the question. In two minds of selling the car (04 2.0 TDI) and getting something a little more fun for the Twisties. The Clio Cup 197 would be the replacement. However I really do hate the plastic crap you get on the inside of a French car in General. I would be parting with the...

    Cigarette Lighter Fuse location?

    Hi all, I brought an iPhone in car charger and when plugging in, it seems to have blown somewhere, (probabily down to it being a cheapy)! I tried it in both front & boot plugs and neither work now. I checked the fuse in the actual iPhone charger itself and the fuse is still good. I also...

    Best A6 S Line seat cover?

    Do Audi offer one and if so a part number would be super if anyone has it as TPS dont seem to know if one is available. Preferably one that is fitted & purpose made for the A6 S Line seat. Something that can be removed fairly easily. Dont want the usual bad fitted, cheap quality rubbish on eBay...
