    I was merely commentating comparing the air con. Obviously the audi is far more superior in other ways, but really air con?

    Air con...

    our W reg , year 2000 ford fiesta 1.25 zetec can become a fridge whatever the temperature outside with air con. So Fords were doing far superior air con units around the same time on the Fiesta's!

    Air con...

    Not sure if this is an issue anyone has experienced or if they know what might be the issue. I have previously asked about the air con not doing its job good enough to keep me cool during last summer. Even set to Lo, the air was never getting very cold enough to get it nice and cool inside the...

    More information on rear parcel shelf part....

    I've just noticed one side of my parcel shelf is missing the part that hooks in the back to hold it down. See pictures. Is this a part I can get from audi or Eb*y. If so what is it actually called / part number? Or is this part of the whole parcel shelf?

    Hottest Day ... and air con on the Blink

    OK, so from everyone's comments there must be something wrong. I think the Kwik fit person was simply not bothered to do any work that day! I will take it elsewhere and get it checked. the fans are all working as i can hear them kicking in/working. if anything slightly on the noiser side, but...

    Hottest Day ... and air con on the Blink

    I have my S3 air con (or is it climate control!) on low/automatic for a really long time and just never gets that cold. I once took it to quick fit to check it. He put his hand near the bellowing vents and said it seems ok to him, granted it was just slightly 'cooler" than normal at that time...

    Ming blue S3 2003

    Interesting you mention that. Its always the genuine low mileage unmolested ones that go for silly money.

    Ming blue S3 2003

    I feel, many S3 owners if they were facing repairs of 3K+ they would be selling their cars! you also mention ...so far..Blimey how much more are you planning in piling in? I guess it will be enhancements and not more general maintenance spending!

    Haldex pump repair guide

    obviously a very cheap fix, but for those of us not quite with this skill , surely a new replacement pump is around £130 ? I've seen some new ones on ebay..I suppose you are saving a fortune if you compare even at that price, but I dont think its overly expensive at that price.

    Haldex pump test

    I was recently thinking the exact same thing! I am sure when I ran the test a few years ago I could hear it quite easily sitting in the car, but when i just tried it - nothing...nada! ....Tried the test, not that I am experiencing any haldex issues Interested to hear from others. Please go try it!

    Haldex always in 4WD, rear wheels scratch when turning

    OK, so i was an extremely patient person and I would say one lucky person. I had the issue for a about 2 years+ , simply taking it easy when doing those U turns, etc Then one day on Eb*y I saw the new one for sale in USA. I cant remember the precise details surrounding how it came up for sale...
