    Rear number plate lights - 1 not working

    Hi, my left hand number plate light doesn't work. Should i have a dash warning telling me this, as I haven't had one? Also does anyone know part numbers so i can get a pair of new ones or a decent not to bright alternative? Thanks J

    After 2 weeks of ownership.

    I've read a few things saying the 3.0tfsi can get through a bit of oil. Think i've done about 1000 miles in mine now and topped up once, not sure if it was at max when i picked it up though?!

    Collected my new to me A6

    WOT = wide open throttle. Posh word for flooring it! Yeah a remap is very tempting, but im going to run mine as is for a bit and see if anything breaks or needs sorting.

    Liking it, looks just like my new to me (6 weeks ago) 3.0tfsi avant. They are a bit of a weapon if you go WOT! Is it aventurine blue (spelling?!)

    A3 2.0t dsg or manual?

    @JDP..... Granted, flappy paddles probably are a bit gimmicky, but think id end up a bit gutted if i didnt have them! Good to hear your missus gets on with dsg, maybe there is hope for my missus too! She changes gear way too much in a manual anyway so auto seems the way to go for her!!
