    ULEZ ... Need a new (used) car?

    Great advice, to be honest I've looked into this and as it seems any petrol above 2007 should conform. I've looked at A5 Quattro's and apparently the 2.0 tfsi's (225) do 40'ish mpg? not sure how believable/achievable this is in the real world. It's just confusing as I'm not sure whether to opt...

    ULEZ ... Need a new (used) car?

    I’ve recently sold my 520D and now looking for a new (used) Audi… At the moment, I’m driving my girlfriends 8P3 09 140 TDI (Stage 1) to work which does about 48-55mpg. I do 50 miles daily from London to Hertfordshire. Now as I only do between 9k-10k miles a year, I’m thinking petrol for the...

    Just had a new car and need a little advice...

    Don't know how different densions are to one another, however having fitted the BT Lite it was straight plug and play, no radio code required.

    Will BBS CS-5 18" alloys fit an audi a3?

    They should fit, I've had RS6's on my old A3 (ET43) without any problem however your wheels are about 3mm wider. Shouldn't be a problem.

    8P 2.0T cold air induction and odd noises

    Cheers for the response, will certainly check the clips and hopefully get a video of it. Unfortunately I've tried to record it on video but it doesn't pick up the noise mainly because of the exhaust [emoji19]

    USB/AUX retrofit?

    Unfortunately I don't have any photos however I did do it on two of my previous a3's. I tried it on Some spare ones easy job but if you take your time it does come out neat. My aux also had rubber grommets around it which made the drilled hole ever better. Can't say it looks oem if that's...

    She's a write off :(

    update for those following, managed to get a courtesy car (C220) from the insurer until everything else is sorted. Although I'm gutted for my S3 and am sure nothing will come close to her, got to say these mercs drive beautifully.

    tyre advice please...

    To my understandings, always pick the load rating (91/94) according to manufactures recommendation. Picking the wrong one would either result in a harsh ride or your tyres wearing out quicker. Enter your reg in the site below and it should tell you the recommended rating...

    tyre advice please...

    I've tried both Sport 3's and F1's, both are good on the road and perform as good as one another however I will for sure pick f1 assy 2 as they last a lot longer (I did 20-25k if I remember correctly) and also have a rim protector.

    Guidance for splitting a car please......

    Selling parts will take a very long time speaking from experience. Some parts people are always after hence would go quick, yet some others will take you a while. In the long term you will make a lot from it. I wouldn't personally do it ever again unless I had space and patience which I don't :)
