    Haldex fault

    Always thought my car had rubbish traction, turned out I was right and had the haldex pump replaced late last year... was rather glad to have extended warranty on the old beast as the bill was over 1k. Now just need to get (another) new windscreen...

    Anyone else with a manual selecting reverse instead of first!?

    It's too damn slow at doing exactly that :D

    Anyone else with a manual selecting reverse instead of first!?

    When taking it out of reverse, if you try and go for first quickly, you'll get reverse again - this is definitely a problem with the gearbox design and does catch me out now and again but that's the only scenario I've had an issue with. So doing a rapid 3 point turn, it's almost guaranteed to...

    Stone Chips: ReSpray, Wrap or Full Wrap?

    I saw a BMW with one of these things once. I nearly cried I was laughing at it so much...

    Brown trouser moment in E mode!!!!

    Meanwhile, back in reality, I've pulled away flawlessly (every, single time!) from the roundabout/traffic lights whilst you input the launch sequence button presses and/or don't move at all 'cos the compoota says no :D Wait dammit, I hear you scream, that's not fair - I wasn't ready :P

    Brown trouser moment in E mode!!!!

    Sheesh - I too am more than happy I went with a manual and not an S-Tronic - pulls like a train when I overtake - think you need a manual :P

    No, there isn't (AFAIK!).

    Adaptive Cruise

    ACC is awesome, I use it all the time except when I am driving with "enthusiasm". Normal CC I'd never use (too much traffic) but ACC, even with a manual, is great. I find distance 1 or 2 on motorways is the right distance and 4 on 40/30 limits. In dynamic, regaining the original speed after...

    S3 - Goodyear Eagle F1 vs Michelin Pilot Sport 4

    No, I don't think so - a little quieter than the GY Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2's on 18" rims.

    S3 - Goodyear Eagle F1 vs Michelin Pilot Sport 4

    So an update on these after about 1,300 miles (already!): Less understeer Road noise also less (not much but it's there) Wet grip better (absolutely carved through deep water) Definitely more compliant a ride MPG slightly worse Not nail resistant - 1 x new tyre after 4 days - hey ho! All...

    S3 - Goodyear Eagle F1 vs Michelin Pilot Sport 4

    My Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2's were at the end of their lives (all 4 worn down equally, which was convenient) so decided to swap them out for something else. Decided to try the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4, as have seen good reviews of them. Got them fitted a couple of days ago and my immediate...

    CD Playing?.

    Think you need the tech pack for FLAC to be supported.

    CD Playing?.

    In case you're not aware, there's no difference audibly between a CD and a FLAC file but if the old spinning things (you can coat with jam and they still work) float your boat, go for it :D

    CD Playing?.

    Exactly - get yourself a sensible sized SD card, format as FAT32 and then copy all your tunes across - no lethal fumblings for a mere 10 or so tracks :-) Or save yourself some storage space (if you need to) and do up to 320Kbps VBR MP3 (you won't notice any difference).

    CD Playing?.

    I have a four-letter word for you - FLAC :)

    MyAudi.com Map Update

    I can send over an SD card via pigeon :whistle2: SD card in car now, let's hope it improves the rubbish route-planning too... not holding my breath on that front!

    2000 mile in a week

    I remember my first trip up around the west coast of Scotland with my S3, with one memorable queue of about 8 cars. No-one willing to overtake (which is the norm, so you end up at the speed of the lowest common denominator!). The car in front of me at the back of the queue is... an S3...
