    Audi Air con service

    Should I have this done on a 2 year old car? Seems rather excessive to me. Cheers. Andi.

    A3 1.8T 2013 brake pads

    Dave, yes I did just that in the end and they kindly gave me the correct part number and where to get them from at £86.74. I have now ordered a set from EBC at half that price ;-) Andi.

    Auto light switch

    Darn it, the switch has arrived and it's not as described, no Auto setting :-( Have to return it and look again, found a couple in Germany but quite a bit more expensive! Andi.

    Auto light switch

    My switch pushes in as per the 8P removal videos I've seen but it won't allow the unit to come out of the panel. The switch can be pulled back to be flush with the surface though. Andi.

    Auto light switch

    Just checked and the part number of the switch is L not J. How is the switch removed, I've seen 8P videos where you push the switch in but this doesn't seem to work on mine? Far too wet here today to look at the mirror :-) Andi.

    Auto light switch

    I spotted an A3 auto light switch on ebay for £20. I thought if it was that cheap it would be a good mod. Wouldn't want to spend much more. Andi.

    Auto light switch

    My car doesn't have auto lights, but will the wiring and sensor be in place so that I can just replace the switch? Andi.

    Probably not but what will Mr Plod and Mrs Insurance think in the event of even a non fault incident?

    RIP A6 long live the A3

    Just swapped out the 2010 A6 for a 2013 (8V) A3 Sportback S-Line 1.8T. First thing I need to do is get reversing sensors! ;-) Next is some Winter tyres, I have some 16" A3 wheels but V rated Winter tyres, that will have the same circumference as the summer 18" wheels seem very rare. I was...

    Driver Information Display

    I've checked up on a few places and I can see where to get it fixed now. However it started working half an hour into a longer drive and it's kept going! It will be monitored now. Andi.

    Driver Information Display

    It's just gone blank! No response to Mode switch and I can't reset the odometer. Lights for parking, indicators ignition all seem OK and odometer is still counting. Any thoughts - is there a fuse or reset switch for this? Cheers. Andi.
