    Hello, Just want to get rid of a pair of S3 Avus Alloys. Both have old Ultrac Vredstein tyres with 2/3mm left; however you will need to replace these as they have been on for over 5 years. Both Alloys have surface pock marks (where I dropped them face down on the tarmac doh) and very minor...

    Word of advice on changing the fuel filter. 1. Run the fuel to near enough empty 2. Take out the fuse 3. WEAR SOME GOGGLES - getting fuel in the eye isn't great

    You need to find the exact part code numbers from the scan. The fuel pump relay is relevant to about lots of different fault codes and is not always the problem. FYI my car had issues of conking out- scanned it and it came up with a fuel pump relay. Replaced the relay and all was good however...

    S3 rattle-downpipe/cat?

    I have had the same issue, an annoying metalic rattle during driving and increasing with speed. Checked all the usual culprits but it came down to the propshaft. It was two things 1. the bearing was knackered and 2. the bolts were not secured. Would be worth getting your garage to check that...
