    Alloy and tyre damaged while at audi

    Looks like the rim protector took the brunt of it and the wheel got away with a light scuff. From the pic I don’t think that’s deep enough to have damaged the tyre but I’m looking at a picture. Best to go to a garage or MOT place and see what they say. If it’s an mot fail then get a new tyre...

    Sourcing OEM brake pad shims

    Are you guys sure the shims aren’t stuck on the pads? Most manufactures have a small shim glued on and not visible without taking the pad out. Like this

    Retrofit folding mirrors

    I think it’s a UK Europe thing that everything is an option. In **** things like folding mirrors, leather and electric seat are pretty much standard on all prestige marques. Folding mirrors was standard in my sister 2007 Ford Fiesta which was only £7500 brand new back then.

    Would an Audi A3 8V door module work on a Audi Q2 (exact same parts numbers)?

    Talking about modules I found something in the garage I was meant to send you last year. This whole pandemic year has messed my head up. Will send you a pm later.

    5 alive! Introducing my 2018 S3...

    Me skim reading again. Used to think cars with rails look out of place till I got mine with roof rails. Now all a3/s3 look odd to me without them.

    5 alive! Introducing my 2018 S3...

    That’s a nice car. Didn’t realise 18 plates we’re going for around £30k, might need to look at selling mine. Is there any reason why some pics have roof rails and other don’t?

    Can you install puddle lights without warning lights?

    My facelift has puddle lights but not warning lights from factory so should work. I’ve seen others with both puddle and warning. Not sure why Audi changed it.

    Would an Audi A3 8V door module work on a Audi Q2 (exact same parts numbers)?

    For a tenner is it not worth a punt and see if it works. If it does then your £50 better off and if it doesn’t then you are a tenner worse off. Just gambler in me talking though.

    Would an Audi A3 8V door module work on a Audi Q2 (exact same parts numbers)?

    Could this be a lhd/rhd issue cause a lot of used parts on eBay come from Europe?

    S3 LEAVES TOMORROW......

    They keep buying cause when you get in these cars they feel a bit special. Of all the cars I test drove the evoque had the nicest interior, the finish of everything just felt like it was on another level compare to the German trio. Nothing felt cheap and even the base spec had things like...

    Facelift 356 New rear discs.

    That’s on your 19s. On 18s I don’t think it will clear.

    Brake Pad advice

    Especially those ones. Pain in the rear if they round off. Been a while since I’ve changed brakes but can’t see much has changed. Been changing cars more than brakes in recent years Edit: coming to think of it those bolts should have a cover over them so shouldn’t be too bad for rust so could...

    S3 LEAVES TOMORROW......

    Mate got pretty much the same car and had no issues in 60ks. Mine was definitely special. Mrs wants another one or the bigger velar once we are back in the office. Glutton for punishment. To be fair I had a similarly painful experience with an audi not that long ago, engine problems spewing...

    Brake Pad advice

    Not trying to be funny but if you are unsure how to change brakes you really shouldn’t be doing them. It’s the number 1 safety system. Anyway You got the bolts that hold calipers these normally come with most kits I’ve used so I change them to new ones but it should be ok to reuse if you don’t...

    S3 LEAVES TOMORROW......

    Test drove the xc40, Tiguan, x1, q3 a couple of years ago then settled on the evoque as that was the nicest and standard spec was very high it was a shame I got the Friday afternoon car. Interior was definitely the nicest of them all. Tiguan was nice but didn’t feel that special inside and got...

    S3 LEAVES TOMORROW......

    Really can’t agree more. My Land Rover was a prime example of the Friday afternoon car which shouldn’t exist in today’s automated productions. Most annoying thing is a mate has the same car and did 60k without an issue and mine went back to dealers 13 times in 5ks.

    Facelift 356 New rear discs.

    There’s a bit of lip on the disc and will be needing new pads soon so think it’s time for for new stuff. Quite like that big disc conversion kit from VBT. New carriers and new discs and I get that big disc look in the back.

    Facelift 356 New rear discs.

    Good looking discs. Are they any noisier than oe? Previously found some groove/drill/dimple discs can get noisy I’m starting to look at disc/pads as after a year of very little miles mine looks like a rusty mess. Probably didn’t help I still cleaned my car during that period.
