    Apologies for the confusion - clearly Trando and Felon are the same person... Just different computers and a poor memory. Felon

    Bye Bye S3

    Sure - on a good day I look exactly like that! I might ask you the same question about yours... And yes jojo - the C55 is like a hotrod - I can't wait... Really though, I'm only buying it cos I fell in love with the noise it makes. Felon

    Bye Bye S3

    Hi everyone I'm afraid the time has come to say cheerio to my S3. It's been a blast and in many ways I'm sorry to see her go. But go she must! I'm off to AMG - got a C55 on it's way. Haven't actually decided what to do with the S3 but expect to see it on Pistonheads etc soon. Good luck to...

    Loose external trim

    Hi everyone The grey plastic trim at the base of the wing behind the driver's door is loose. I'm sure you all know which bit of trim I'm referring to but just in case, here's a pic (sorry about the unecessarily large size - couldn't work out how to make it smaller): I've had a good look at it...

    labour is £62 per hour (this includes vat) - local Audi dealer is £115 per hour (this includes vat). Will probably give them a go as they are not far from me. I'll let you know. Felon

    Yaw sensor cost

    ok - thanks guys. Until I can work out whether to do it myself (I have big hands) or pay for it, is there anything I need to be aware of when driving the car, or is this just a failure of the sensor? Finally, I'm in Chandler's Ford in Hampshire - if anyone can recommend a 'specialist'...

    Yaw sensor cost

    Guys - esp light was coming on every so often so took it down to Audi who said that the yaw sensor needs replacing. They quoted £600 for the job all in. That's a load of cash for a sensor - I just need to know from anyone here if that's about right... any ideas? Ta Felon

    I-pod conversion: Audi or Halfords

    Also, contrary to what is said elsewhere in this thread, you don't lose access to your cd changer. I can play cds or my ipod if I choose. To access the cd changer, I press the cd button once, to access the ipod, I press it twice. It's that simple.

    I-pod conversion: Audi or Halfords

    I had the Audi Ipod connector fitted a couple of months ago. The sound quality through my Bose system is fantastic. The lead exits into the glove compartment so everything is nice and discrete. it cost more than you have been quoted so if you have the money I would go for it...

    Engine Speed Sensor Fault code 16706

    Thanks for the info. I don't fancy doing it myself so will go down the route of buying the part and getting an independent to do it as I suspect my dealer will charge an arm and a leg...

    Engine Speed Sensor Fault code 16706

    Guys - had problems starting my S3 today after a long trip. The problem is well documented elsewhere on this and other forums in ASNet but the guy from VAG Assist said that it was a pig to fix. I'm no DIYer unfortunately, so what can I expect from the dealer cost wise... anyone any idea??? Ta...

    Tyre Question

    My S3 has Kumho ECSTA KH11 225/45R17s on all 4 corners. No, I haven't come across them before either, but to be fair, they've been fine... They were new on the car when I bought it but now I think it's about time I looked at alternatives - they're wearing fine and the ride they give is ok but...
