    Coolant temp

    Any of you guys noticed your water temperature moving all over the place. Today was the first warm day I’ve had the car and got stuck in traffic. Temp went through the roof (108 degrees). No warning lights on at all. Since then I have been checking the gauge and noticed the temp moves all over...

    Went and watched this last week. Came away feeling it was probably the best film I had seen this year. Excellent special effects, although a bit Matrixy in places. A totally confusing storyline, but all in all well worth a visit to the cinema.

    Strange noise

    Has anyone on here experienced any strange noises from under the bonnet when the car isn't running? My 2008 S3 has started making a buzzing/beeping noise every 20-30 seconds. Seems to be coming from under the engine cover near the front of the engine.

    Have had this sat on the side since it was released and only got around to watching it last night. Although the films a bit on the long side I actually really enjoyed it. considering some of the reviews it has received i was quite surprised by how well the story is put together. Unlike a lot of...

    Bird crap

    Just a small question for the guys in the know. What's the chance of bird crap being so acidic it will eat into the paint and cause a frosted etched effect in less than 6 hours. Reason I ask is I spent the weekend detailing my car but when i came out of work this afternoon there appeared to be a...

    For those with bucket seats

    Was just wondering if everyone who spec'd buckets in their s3 are happy with them. considering the premium you pay I don't personally think they are great. Mine have only done 1500 mile and they already look creased. Before anyone asks I am not a lardy ******* and I get in as carefully as...

    Anyone else had this problem with their new S3

    This was noticed a while ago and I am just getting around to pinning Audi's *** down to get it sorted. Just wondered if anyone else has had anything similar. BTW my local Audi dealers won't do anything as they reckon its a body shop job. What a crock, unless I am mistaken it will come the...

    Another led Interior light nearlly done!

    Thought I would share a few poorly taken pictures with you all. Am very happy with the led mod (Sorry about bugging you all the time Toby) It hasn't been without its problems but managed to work through them eventually. Not sure how the guys who have already done this managed to find wedge...

    Must have been a Friday afternoon design decision

    Was in the middle of doing the Led Interior light mod. What the hell were Audi thinking when they fitted the puddle lights. For a make of vehicle with so much so say thought that goes into it, WHY would they make the wiring loom on the ****** puddle lights so short. Its not rocket science to add...

    Whats your thoughts on these

    Was looking on Ebay and came across this interior Led kit. Emailed the guy with the concerns about fitting resistors and he says they draw the same power as the standard bulbs and no modification is require. He has good feedback and the price is reasonable, but am not sure. Have a looksee...
