    Gonna have a go at this myself - thoughts?

    Suprised the Chips Away guy said its a bumper off job. Try touching it up with a touch up pen first and see what it looks like.

    A3 2.0 tdi s line oil filter location

    Did the oil change, was a pain as i didn't have a bigger torx bit for the 3 screws at the back of the undertray. Also you need a 32mm socket for the oil filter, so had to borrow one from a friend. I also changed the diesel fuel filter which a piece of cake!

    Thanks Dean for the heads up! On my BMW there was a nice hatch for access to the sump plug and the oil filter was at the top, easy accessible.:grimacing:

    A3 2.0 tdi s line oil filter location

    Hi Thought it would be accessible once I removed the engine cover but it's not there. I take it you have to remove the undertray to gain access to it?

    I'm a fan of the black wheels but it depends on the car etc. More cars these days have black wheels as standard or diamond cut rims with black bits.
