    Anyone running 19” S5 wheels on a facelift 8V S3? (9.0J / ET33 / 255 or 235 tyre)

    Chaps, I’m looking at upgrading to a 19” wheel this summer and noticed the new S3 on Audi’s configurator now has a choice of a 19” ‘10 Y Spoke’ option, just like the A5 S-Line / S5. My question is, would A5 / S5 wheels fit on an S3 with a 33 offset? I tried using ‘willtheyfit.com’ and states...

    Lease car 1st service. HOW MUCH?

    Thanks Ju! Exactly the answer I was looking for. I’ll make sure to give York Audi a call. By the looks of my terms and conditions, it actually states ‘Audi centre’ or ‘approved Audi repairer’... Need to look further into this. Just for the record, I’m happy to take it to a main dealer. I’m...

    Lease car 1st service. HOW MUCH?

    Adam, thanks for your reply. By the sounds of it, an independent garage is totally out of the question as per my terms and conditions. I appreciate dealers are more expensive due to their labour costs etc, but I can’t see how Audi want to charge £286 when a VW main dealer (the company that owns...

    Lease car 1st service. HOW MUCH?

    Chaps, I have a 2018 (67) 8V S3 that is coming up for 12 months old and is due an oil change in less than 30 days. Two things. Firstly, I called for quotes at Bradford and Leeds Audi (evidently all my local Audi centres are under the Sytner brand) so all of their prices were the same.. The...

    S3 Black Edition - 18” wheels powder coated black

    Chaps, I have an order in for an Ibis white S3 Sportback Black Edition hopefully being delivered next month.. My question is, has anyone had the ugly standard 18” 5 arm turbine wheels powder coated all black (not just the spokes)? I feel having a ‘black edition’ Audi should have a black...

    S4 Buying help

    Chaps, Just a quick thread for someone to answer me the following points.. If you had 20k to spend, would it go towards a B8 S4 or an E92 M3? Second question, is there anything I should know regarding the S4 before I start looking? Any common faults / reliablity issues? (I was told about...

    2005 3.2 V6 haldex oil / filter change

    Chaps, does anyone posses a how to guide on changing the haldex oil and filter on a 2005 3.2 V6? Secondly the oil came in a tub (I was expecting it in a cylinder to put in a gun) does the whole 1L need to go in? And I'm guessing its side fed as opposed to the plug being on the bottom as the...
