    S3 stolen in the night, gutted!

    If anyone sees a 09 black S3 in the Midlands area with 2 'thugs' driving it, it's mine! Stolen off my drive this morning at 4.30am, gutted to be honest. I got the car new and at a good price (just over 10% off list) and i suppose i'll get some crappy offer from my insurance co. I do have GAP...

    Anyone got a good pic of front windscreen?

    New S3, alarm going off randomly, help!

    3 months into ownership of a new S3 and the alarm has gone off 4 times completely randomly including last night at 4.30am which was greatly appreciated by my wife! Surely this is a fault that needs to be addressed? Anyone else had this problem or know how they can fix it??

    New S3, front bumper at bottom peeling?

    New S3 only 4 weeks old and i noticed this morning that the bumper at the bottom (the gery bit) is peeling and flaking already quite badly. I could actually peel it all off easily. Surely this can't be right??? Anyone experienced the same or know what they will do to correct it?

    Cracked windscreen already 3 weeks in!

    Great, 600 miles on the clock of my nice new S3 and a stone hit the windscreen and a ****** great crack has appeared. £65 excess gone in a flash to replace the windscreen. Bad luck or what?! It'll be the alloys getting kerbed next i assume! :keule:

    Millitek exhaust, options and prices?

    Considering a Millitek exhaust for a new S3. What sort of cost will i be looking at and are there different types (i.e can you have just the back bit done or is it just one system?) I'm guessing it won't be a dramatic difference in performance but should sound better?

    Bose Speakers v Aftermarket Options

    I have ordered a car with the Bose option but was having 2nd thoughts as i have heard reviews that it's not actually that good? Is there a known aftermarket option in terms of head unit and / or speakers that i should be looking at? A price guide would be useful too.

    Running a new car in?

    Is this worth doing these days? Some say, yes still run it in for 1000 miles, some say that by driving it hard from day 1, the engine will loosen up nicely and be quicker in the long run?? :think:

    S3 alloy choice 18" or 19"??

    Have ordered a new S3 with the standard 18 inch S3 alloys which i quite like but wondered whether i should have gone for the 19 inch ones, although i didn't see them on the options list? Are they a special order? Is it worth going for them ( i assume they are the RS4 alloys). They look great...
