    There's quite few S3's based at the Next Head Office in Enderby, Leicester. Anyone on here?

    First Inspection (19k) - 65 S3

    End of the day it's up to you - for peace of mind over warranty and price when its sold/given back I'll always go with main dealer to get the scheduled things done. Worth finding a main dealer with a good reputation though.

    First Inspection (19k) - 65 S3

    Phutters; I could change the pollen filter myself - having changed engines before I'm sure I'd manage. But, if you noticed, I'm asking whether the price I've been quoted for this inspection is similar to what others have paid given the fact it seems a little steep - not if I could do it myself...

    First Inspection (19k) - 65 S3

    I'm not sure what service plan I'm on. This is just an Inspection with Pollen Filter change though - no oil or oil filter change as that was done at the tail end of last year.

    Facelift Jingling sound going over uneven roads / bumps

    I have an issue where my windows rattle when its cold & damp. Imagine how fun that one is to try and get the dealer to sort.

    S3 stolen

    Gutted for you OP :( Was it a 5 door or 3 door? Seems the 5 door's are more at risk I think? Definitely worth getting GAP insurance, but just typical yours ran out only a matter of a few weeks ago. To wade in on the key debate - mine are out of sight of windows etc, but easily to find once...

    First Inspection (19k) - 65 S3

    Morning all, Quick one - how much have you all been paying for your first inspection (not oil change & inspection) at 19k miles? Dealer has quoted me about £230 - which seemed high? Even though they're kindly fitting a new pollen filter for me :neutral: Especially considering my first Oil...

    The world vs Audi drivers...

    Ha - yeah - sometimes! It's the Blackvue dr650gw-2ch. The front camera is 1080p, and the rear is 720p - although I think the newer version is even better quality. Though it will mess with your DAB signal...

    I know. The more you watch the video the worse her mistake gets.

    The world vs Audi drivers...

    This happened just before Christmas. £4ks worth of damage as she went straight through the wing, alloy, bumper, headlight and the PS auxiliary radiator that sits in front of the wheel. Car dropped all the coolant on the road (you can see the steam) and I had to have it recovered. All because she...

    Spotters Thread For 8V Chassis

    Seen quite a few recently, all Leicestershire; Sepang SB S3 - could have been an RS3 - going through Huncote about 8:45pm last Wednesday (the 6th) - you were behind me until I turned into the leisure centre. White 3dr S3 - about 10:20 on the same night (6th) followed me from Narborough to the...

    Images of how I installed a Blackvue DR650GW-2CH

    So I've finally got round to installing my DR650gw-2ch. Really happy with it EXCEPT the ****** DAB issues. I only tend to listen to 5Live in the car, and it now drops at the same place on my drive to work every day. Prior to install, there would be a slight drop of about a second at around the...

    Roof bars - S3

    Massive thanks for the replies! I think I'm going to go for the roof bars idea - not ideal but I think it might be the only way.

    Roof bars - S3

    I'm after constructive advice please, not opinions. As some of you might know I'm off driving round Europe for 2 weeks with the Mrs. We're going to be camping a lot as it is cheaper and offers a lot more flexibility in what we do when we're there. Because of this though, we need to...

    One you start, you're never "done"! Lovely car that mate though, don't usually like 20"'s but those look exceptional.

    Start/Stop Question (S-Tronic)

    This is exactly as I experience it - so it might not be logical, but it's not a fault either then.

    Start/Stop Question (S-Tronic)

    Mine does the same, cuts out before the car stops moving. It is one of the more aggressive start/stop systems I've encountered!
