    Pete's OEM+ Audi A3 Black Edition 3 door 2.0 TDI 170ps

    Thanks @Shanwaz ^ :icon thumright: Very happy with the drive at the moment, it's dead eco when I'm off boost and when needed, 3rd and 4th feel very potent @ roughly 330lbft. It's not costing me anymore to run than a 1.4 Fiesta either, which is perfect when you're starting on the property...

    Pete's OEM+ Audi A3 Black Edition 3 door 2.0 TDI 170ps

    Updates. Small and subtle, but have cost a fair whack. It's still the excellent all rounder I wanted it to be, steady on fuel, 50mpg on my 12 mile commutes consistently, 580 miles to a tank without really looking for it, bags of torque in 3rd and 4th when needed and can drop my golf clubs and...

    OEM LED Numberplate Lights without errors 2010+

    Unlikely, a friend has run a set for over a year on his Ibiza FR, I've also got plenty of spare sets from different suppliers and different types. Halfords also do a similar set that friends in recent hot hatches have run successfully for months and months. The point was the experiment for a...

    OEM LED Numberplate Lights without errors 2010+

    Finally finished my experiment with the results I was looking for, therefore I can confirm that; If you have - a 2009+ 8P3 facelift car (mine is an MY10 Black Edition A3), so 2009-2012 - the Kufatec LED resistor adapter in place - any LED bulbs, so it would seem (**Important to note that the...

    Red 2006 A3 S-Line 3 door N'hampton A45

    Don't know if this car is on here but spotted you a couple of times dude, gave you the thumbs up this morn. Cars got pressed plates and what looks like S3 skirts. Car looks dead smart on a nice stance :thumbs up: Pete.

    Jackos Bluey Mk2.. Build/progress Thread.. Pic Heavy!

    Looks excellent Jack, I think there's some very tasteful mods in there. Started with the key components too which I like to do myself, well in :encouragement: Intrigued by the LED plate lights, are these error free & reliable ones for 2009 vehicles that might have bypassed the radar? :think:

    Coming Home & Leaving Home Lights Enabled

    Manually triggered CH lights (which you've got there) are fairly standard across most VAG models, with auto headlights and with manual headlights. You'll only need to pull the beam flash stalk towards you to activate it, day or night. The first few steps shouldn't be necessary. Most of my...

    Black Edition Wheel paint code

    Brendan, Endless research leads me to ask which lacquer you used out of interest, a satin lacquer , matte lacquer or gloss lacquer? I've had a set of CK's refurbished with the wrong gloss lacquer which didn't give me that colour unfortunately, as good as they are in their own right. It...

    Original Audi number plate LED's that fit the A3 8P - plug & play!

    Just a little update for anyone with an 8P3 or late 2009 onwards car that's debating these - I've been running the 20odd LED units for over 9 months now with no major issues. The units need a bit of maneuvering to fit completely flush, but they are an excellent product for £25 or so. These are...

    Pete's OEM+ Audi A3 Black Edition 3 door 2.0 TDI 170ps

    I'm more or less done as of the original plan, needs a little freshening up cosmetically on the brakes. Calipers will likely be done in GTI red and the hubs in grey or black, as they look a bit dated for a 2010 car. Tracking needs aligning too, I don't think it's ever been spot on since I've...

    A3 BE Door Lower Sill Panel Part no.

    A3 BE Door Lower Sill Panel Part no.

    Looking for the part number of the 8P3 (MY10) A3 S-Line 3 door door sill panel please guys. It's the softer plastic part that lines the bottom of the door. Sure enough being on coilovers, I parked on a heavily side-sloped street and it had an unintended scrap with the gravely pavement - of which...

    Pete's OEM+ Audi A3 Black Edition 3 door 2.0 TDI 170ps

    Sounds about right. LOL, consistent to what we've both heard then at least! Contisports are indeed capable too. I can't imagine owning a car that doesn't wear Pilot Sports, Contisports or the new P Zero Rosso's for the near future :icon_thumright:

    Pete's OEM+ Audi A3 Black Edition 3 door 2.0 TDI 170ps

    The 8P3 does, yep. Well, mine does (MY10). I know a good few friends with 2010 Scirocco's and Golf GTD's that also have it :thumbsup: The SV2's are pretty poor in anything other than snow and ice. Any reviews I've seen on any other Nankang model tyres also seem to reveal the same stories too :huh:

    Pete's OEM+ Audi A3 Black Edition 3 door 2.0 TDI 170ps

    Winter tyres off and Pilot Sport PS2 x2 back on the front a couple of weeks back. Can honestly say these are the best all round tyres I've owned versus Conti's, Pirellis, Goodyears and every other top brands I've tried. If you're looking for a new set of tyres, you won't be disappointed (mine...

    Fitting Votex Skirts

    (A well entrenched and dead thread I know, but...) Chaps in the know, I'll assume yes - but given that these Votex Skirts might be part of my little 'facelift' work, will they fit an 8P3 or MY10 A3 Black Edition? (3 door) Thanks.
