    Guide to PCV replacement S3 2010

    Hi I did a search but, couldn't see a guide on how to replace the PCV on an Audi S3. Mine is 2010. Found a generic video on youtube which involved removing the coil packs and some other stuff. Is this the case on the S3? Thanks in advance.

    Audi Service Plan Offer for cars 3 to 5 years is back £299 or £399

    Just thought this would be worthwhile posting up as I wasn't aware of these until I saw details on a 'deals' website. Worth mentioning that our car is 6 on 23 September 2015 but, we plan to purchase this now as there is no age or mileage restriction. As we would normally take the vehicle to Audi...

    What colour brake calipers BMW E91 335d Touring Sapphire Black

    As per the title I need to tidy up the stock calipers on my beemer. I had thought about the BMW Motorsport brake upgrade but, apparently the stock brakes are meant to be better and BMW don't list this model as being suitable for the upgrade. So I was thinking about DIY painting the calipers and...

    Why haven't I seen more A3 (8Vs) on the road?

    I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen one of the new A3's on the road.

Is there any source to see what sales have been like for this...

    RNS-E Upgrade from 2009 Sat Nav disc to 2011 Sat Nav disc

    Hi Tried searching but nothing specific came up. I've just bought a 2011 Audi RNSE disc from EBAY and seems genuine enough with two discs etc etc. Inserted disc 1 one and it then went away and updated software. Took a while but a few minutes seems like ages when you're sat in the car with...

    S3 issue when accelerating hard at high speed

    Just interested if anyone else has experienced this and if so how it was resolved. I've just replaced my Conti Sport Contact 2's all round with Conti Sport Contact 3's. The road noise went down noticeably. However, since getting these tyres fitted my S3 has developed an annoying hestitation...

    Quick question please. Does anyone have one of these that they got as part of the storage back? Does it have a part no on? Had a quick search but, my fixing points seem different and the anchor points in the boot dont seem to fold like they do in the golf. Photos would be appreciated of the...

    New S3 Pre Delivery Preparation

    Okay I've read numerous threads on here about not letting the dealership prep your new car. I've owned a few cars from new and until now hadn't really considered having this done. Over the years I've learnt that Supaguard isnt really worth the money and the last few new cars we've had I have...

    About to order S3 final couple of questions!

    Hi Finally got round to replacing my current car and am about to order the S3 with a few goodies. However, do I go for the Silk Nappa leather or Alcantara/Pearl leather? Car will be Sprint Blue so I am thinking just plain black. I have decided against the buckets seats unless someone thinks I'd...
