    Over here a second hand controller is anything from £50-£150 and without translating the currency I'd say yes. Does the rear wheel lock when you do tight turns? Usually the inside wheel of the turn?

    N249 bypass on bam

    You have a pipe going to the N249 gubbins and a pipe coming from the N249 gubbins that goes down to the inlet. Basically all you need to do is remove the N249 and connect a piece of silicone pipe from the top of the 'dump valve' (recirc valve!) to the inlet nipple. No T-peice needed on BAM/AMK...

    What do you get if you cross a thermos cup with a car?

    I used a protein shaker i'm sure there is a picture on the forum somewhere. I'd put some synthetic wire wool in there mate as it will help filter but still allow gasses to pass through.

    Heated seats!

    Well, whats more likely.... Audi have fitted buttons to your car that don't work and have never worked OR a previous owner has fitted the climate control unit with the buttons as theirs probably packed up, with the mind to fit the seats at a later date. :icon_thumright:I'll let you ponder...

    S3 Sump Removal and Refit (with pics)

    Are they the only bolts holding the sump on now? As the weight of the sump could be hindering you getting them undone..? I would have started with the hardest ones first as they are a *****!
