    My A3 experience so far...

    OK so as some of you might recall, I bought a used Audi A3 (see my sig for spec) about 7 weeks ago. All seemed fine at first but over the next week or two I discovered several problems with it: Rear windscreen wiper washer did not work Light in boot did not work Tremble in steering wheel at...

    Courtesy car insurance

    Hi Guys, My A3 has got a fair few problems and the dealer I bought it from has finally agreed to take it in for a week (or however long it takes) and sort it all out. So they are going to give me a courtesy car while they do that, but I just rang my insurance company to ask if I needed to do...

    Revs pausing when foot to the floor (with video)

    I mentioned this in this thread http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=78089 but apparently it doesnt look like my problem is related so just thought I would get some opinions on my particular problem. A picture paints a thousand words so here's a video (worth a million words?) of my...

So I just wondered if there should be a light and its broken, or...

    Keeping windscreen clean

    Hi Guys, This used to happen in my last car but I was hoping in my next car (which has turned out to be my Audi A3) I wouldnt have this problem... unfortunately I do. Basically, the windscreen is perfectly clear and fine until it rains and I have to use my wipers. As soon as I use the wipers...

    New rear lights for 3 door A3 Sport (2003)

    All of the threads that I have found seem to be about fitting new lights for the 'sportback' (which as I understand it just means 5 door?) apart from this one: http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=80911 - however I'm not sure if my A3 is the same as the creator of that thread because...

    Wheel spin in 4th gear normal?

    Driving last night in the rain, I put my foot to the floor in 4th gear and the wheels started to loose grip and the ESP light on the dashboard came on - I've never experienced that in any other car but then I've never had a TDI before so I dont know if that is kind of normal? Going to check the...

    Bumpy at idle + new buttons

    Hi Guys, Just joined this forum as I bought a 53 plate A3 2.0 TDI Sport a couple of days ago :) As with almost any used car, there are a couple of things that are not perfect on it and I was just wanting to get your opinion on what to do about them. Any suggestions/comments much...
