    Insurance hiked up this year???

    When I rang admiral to tell them I was not renewing with them you can guess what happened. £112 off the quote price due to them "updating some details". This is the world we live in - I politely declined and insured with Chris Knott brokers and explained to the Admiral lady, if you want my...

    Thanks Sandra I’d seen AIB and on checking some of their reviews they didn’t stack up for me, but I haven’t tried the other - I will give them a go though.

    Insurance hiked up this year???

    Something odd with my quotes - I’ve tried aviva, direct line, the usual ones on meerkat etc. It’s due on 29th jan and I’ve been searching since last week. Seems I might just have to live with expensive insurance! I’ll try adding my driver number onto meerkat though to see if it makes any...

    Facelift Nardo Grey Respray - help needed!

    I had a nimbus grey s4 avant a while back and when I bought it from Audi it needed a few bits of paint sorting - they had a nightmare with colour matching and had to get some specialist from Audi on the case to help with a match. Might be worth contacting Audi UK for advice or your dealer if...

    Rs3 valve control programming?

    Bought my valve controller from a forum member Kev Marsh - top bloke. Had mine fitted for about 3 weeks and zero regrets. It’s a big outlay but very useful and the noise on full valves open is awesome! I put together a step by step how to with these photos.

    Order new base RS3 or new fully loaded Golf R now?

    If it were my money I’d be going used RS3 personally. I paid £32k for mine 6 months ago used approved with 18 months warranty left. Comfort, tech and dynamic packs, super sport seats and some other bits too. I’ve owned an RS5, S3, S4 and an S5 and my RS3 sportback is my favourite by far.

    My Audi's broken - P0011 Error

    Hope it gets sorted soon pal. I’d say £450 for an extended Audi warranty is a bargain they wanted nearly £2k to extend on my RS5. I’ve just done a quote on my RS3 and it’s £450 - I’ll most likely take that up when I’m out of factory warranty as I don’t intend to modify it.
