    Rear bike rack S3??

    Hi peeps, Has anyone managed to get a bike rack on the rear of their S3 at all? Trying to find one that might fit. Car is a 3 door hatch S3 2013 model. Looking for a 2 or 3 bike carrier. Don't have roof rails so I'm guessing roof mounted is not a retro fit option? Cheers Ro

    Hi guys, Just wanted to see on opinions: I have an Audi S3 8V 2013 in Estoril Blue - it was not my first choice in colour but the car/spec/price/availability were correct. Only had it 2 months and when I bought it I didn't realise how stone chipped the bonnet and front bumper is. There is the...

    Noise on window going down, normal?

    Hi guys, my 2013 S3 3 door: on the window going down it makes a slight clunking noise from the mechanicals inside the door as the window lowers.

    Auto Stop Slow Speed Crash?

    Hi guys, Do Audi do that slow speed anti-crash system on their cars e.g. crawling behind a car at an island and you think the car in front has gone but you are looking right and then you hit the back of the car in front. I know some manufacturers have a system where it can detect a slow speed...

    Aftermarket S3 Exhaust Tips?

    Hi Guys, Anyone recommend or has bought aftermarket exhaust tips for their S3? Mine are in a terrible state, the outside has gone a "milky" finish - I'm guessing the previous owner or Audi used some sort of "oven cleaner" product on them and they have gone "odd". No matter how much metal...
