    Facelift S3 alloys to RS6 style alloys

    Here are some pics of my S3 with often threatened change of alloys.....Finally took the plunge with a fitted cost of about 1,50 quid. I really like them and they are way easier to clean than my originals.

    Facelift A day to forget

    Last Wednesday I had a day to forget. The underground garage in the building I live in was broken into and 6 cars had their passenger windows smashed and their interiors rifled for goodies. Mine had a USB charge/sync cable and a pair of leather gloves stolen and it was the same for the other...

    Facelift Alloy wheel thoughts

    I am seriously thinking of dumping my standard 19" FL rims with BBS SX 19 18.5 46 ET bright silver finish. Why?

    Facelift S3 2017 review

    Here is an American mag review of the facelift. Note that it is a review on USA models which offer only two base spec models (saloon only) which are pretty loaded and that the engine and transmission are unchanged at 292HP and 6 speed DSG. The findings are pretty bang on for the merits of an S3...

    Facelift Oil temperature gauge

    I know the V/C display can show both water and oil temperature, but does the facelift S3 analog display still have the oil temperature buried stupidly in the lap timer display, or?
