    Sorry, another oil question

    Ah right, so 504.00 is a better quality of oil than the 502.00, guess that makes sense, as it's for longer life services and so wouldn't have any negative impact to be used for fixed service intervals. Does anyone have any idea about the 2 letter suffix's for the Shell Helix Ultra, AG, AV, AD etc?

    Sorry, another oil question

    Yeah thanks AllanG, from what the back of the manual says, it looks like for Longlife services it recommends 504.00 spec. Just wanted to check that fixed service should be 502 spec as it suggests.

    Sorry, another oil question

    Hi all, My first oil change is due for my 65 plate 1.4 COD Stronic and I've decided to supply my own oil to try and save some money. I'm trying to confirm which oil to buy, i've looked at the A3 manual, which recommends for the fixed service interval 502 spec oil. However, in most threads in...

    Pack of Crisp nearly made me poo myself!

    Obviously it was a pretty freak incident, having a foil line pack of crisp fly exactly in front of the sensor of the car,but could have been nasty. Question is whether the benefits such as a possible prevention of a real crash outweigh this negative?

    Pack of Crisp nearly made me poo myself!

    I would have shed a tear for the pack of crisp Simon :disrelieved: Yeah thanks Rob, just lucky it wasn't as busy as it normally is, otherwise the daylight between me and the driver behind would have been a lot less :anguished:

    Pack of Crisp nearly made me poo myself!

    So I was calmly driving in to work this morning, actually making decent progress down one of the main roads in Manchester, when all of a sudden I hear a beep and a red light flash on my dash, I clocked it was the Pre Sense system and next thing you know, the car was slamming on the breaks. No...

    New car delivered........not a happy bunny!

    Nice looking car, very similar to mine apart from the 19s and mono pur, looks awesome, but went for the comfort of s tronic and acc for business mileage. My side bolsters were fine when I got them, but quickly developed the creasing after a few drives. Think it's pretty common with the sline...

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Switched out standard fogs for some white ones courtesy of Trups, looks so much better now. Although one question for anyone else who has done this. After clipping the outer casing back on, how tight is the casing meant to be against the fog light lens. There is about a 5mm gap on mine. But cant...

    First Audi on its way

    Use both of those products, they are both very good. As long as you top of the wax frequently and wash it correctly, you should avoid swirl marks. And whatever you do, do not let anyone else wash it, unless they are a proper detailer. Only problem with this is that you either have to wash it...

    First Audi on its way

    Looks great. Enjoy the motor. I've been spending the last week detailing mine. You've got a lot of work to keep the paint looking that good. Recommend a product called poor boys black hole. Fantastic for back cars. Enjoy

    Jet Seal over wax coating?

    Hi everyone, Need some advice, I made a bit of an impulse buy yesterday, got some Chemical guys Jet Seal sealant off Slim's after seeing how easy it was to apply. However, after doing a little research today, it seems that it is best to put sealant on before wax (sorry i'm a newb with...

    Hi everyone, Think I know the answer to this one, as can't see the function in the manual or in the forum, but thought one last try. Is there anyway to make a playlist via the mmi on non tech pack car? Such as by queuing up songs? Thanks

    decided..I'm buying the s3 saloon in sebang blue....

    I was a bit worried about the SD nav, though the screen resolution would be poor and though it would look poor with big bezel round it, but now that I have it, I have to say it's not too bad, resolution is fine from driver's seat, just don't expect it to be like a display on these new...

    Collection Today !

    Good idea, was planning to take it to detailer myself but in the end thought I would do it myself, give me some bonding time with the car. Tell you what, by the end of it, you know every line and curve of the car.
