    Midnight edition A3

    Could anyone identify what a midnight edition A3 is meant to be? He claims it's a top spec 2.0l A3 and I've never heard of a midnight edition. Unless he is confused with a black edition? But I thought they came with the rotors? Anyone shed some light? Thanks

    Hello I'm thinking of changing my head unit of my 2011 A3 Sline, it had the Audi concert unit I think fitted. I would love to swap this out for a touch screen unit. Are there any that are plug and play or do I have to be a bit more technical with it?
