    Dashcam installer recommendations

    I know what you mean. I Remember my dad fitting a JVC 40w head unit in his MK1 Escort, I guess it was much easier back int good old days, less fuses, less intricate and expensive interiors, in fact im not sure the car had seat belts, nevermind airbags. I remember it had perforted vinyl head lining.

    Facelift S3 damaged by a falling..............Sofa!!!

    Contact a high end detaling company, perhaps ping White details an email and ask their opinion/recommendations as to a PDR guy, in many cases original is best eg paint. Dont forget to include any coatings you had on your car, especially ceramic. Whatever route you decide I hope you get it sorted.

    Bought used a3 have some issues.

    could be that in the accident the air bags deployed, might also of had the dash removed if the header tank silica bag burst, and a new heater matrix fitted. its guess work as to why it may of been removed. Are the auto wipers turned on in the cars coding? Im sure you can check with Carista etc.

    Leak in boot?

    i first noticed as it leaked screenwash onto the hatch central locking motor causing that to fault. Brittle plastic which split when it was freezing temps and freezing the jet housing. With not using the rear wash as much as the fronts, it went un noticed, until my hatch wouldnt lock.
