    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    Don’t say that, lol. I have the printout from the system, maybe my dealer had a slot reserved waiting for a buyer, certainly hope so.

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    I’ve moved on to a 1 series, specifically the 128ti. Didn’t want the full on 135, so dropped to 265 horses and fwd only. Factory is set to build the 1 series in September, so looking at a prelim delivery end Sept, so 6 months, less than the 12 Audi were estimating. Pretty much a standard...

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    I’ve cancelled and gone elsewhere. I can’t see here and wait potentially until the end of the year for a car that I have no idea what spec will be delivered. I’m not paying over £40,000 for a car that will not be worth a great deal in a few years because key items are missing, B&O, rear...

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    You’d think. The reason given for that is the wiring loom?!? Some Audi looms are manufactured in Ukraine. Can’t even retrofit the sensors in the back, as the wiring isn’t there.

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    Spoke with my dealer today, and he has confirmed that there will be spec reductions, without a reduction in price. My S3 order is now back to week 47, unconfirmed, so that’s a year from order. It is most likely that the sound and comfort pack I ordered will feature reduced functionality. In...

    S3 Drone under braking

    Got the same again on order, well an 8Y obviously. Gone for Turbo blue, bit brighter, and added sound and comfort, to almost get to the black edition I have now.

    S3 Drone under braking

    I guess it was just coincidence, likely never noticed it before.

    S3 Drone under braking

    The £500 I found for disks and pads was Brembo, from third party. Hopefully it won’t get any worse before the car goes back in September hopefully.

    S3 Drone under braking

    Finally managed to get the dealer to come out with me in the car, post covid. They checked it all out. Car is 3 years old almost, 17,000 miles and it’s a slightly warped front disk, 20% worn apparently. Due to age of car, not covered. To me, a warped disk is sign of not fit for purpose...

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    Looks good, same wheels I have on my current S3, and ordered again on my new one. Audi beam is quoted in the spec for mine, so here’s hoping I get them. Got the rings at the moment, but dealer has suggested they could change what they look like, could say S, or Audi apparently, Enjoy the car

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    When did you order? I ordered end November, and currently have an estimate of week 30 for build, although that was originally 47 or 49. Good job I’m not in a rush. I’m still trying to get the dealer to confirm the build. If it’s built week 30, will it be MY23 or will it still be MY22 as per...

    A3/S3 delivery lead time?

    I ordered my replacement S3 20th Nov. Dealer suggested an April/May 2022 delivery. Having heard nothing, I chased and got an extract from their system, which suggested the original build week was 47/2022, but that has now moved forward to 30/2022. Guess it’s earlier. That likely means a...

    Facelift Only one of my windscreen washers is working?

    I just pop mine out from the bonnet, disconnect the tube, and the cable, and then work a bit of network cable into each nozzle.

    S3 Drone under braking

    Thanks for the replies. it’s done 15,000 miles, so not a massive number. Noted yesterday that it only does it whilst braking. If I use the gearbox, in Sport, it changes down enough to slow the car sometimes, there is no drone. No judder. Wheel bearing is a possibility, increased weight on...

    S3 Drone under braking

    Few months back I got all 4 tyres changed on my 2019 S3. Now that I have finally got the wheels properly balanced, I am experiencing a drone under braking. The change in tyres may be a coincidence, but once the brakes get up to temperature, the drone starts. I’ve had the wheels off and...

    Brake pad warning light

    Quick update on this one. It’s the rear pads. I didn’t think the rears had a wear detector, but apparently it does, hence the light coming back on. As I can’t do the rears myself due to the handbrake and needing software, garage is doing it.

    Drive Select...

    From what I have been told, and this affects all VW group cars, as well as MB, Volvo etc I have recently had as hire cars, is that this is the programmed behaviour. It's so that if someone else gets in the car, wife, partner, whatever, it is in a default driving mode. No one has ever been able...

    Brake pad warning light

    Cheers, Yes, Had it all apart, checked the contacts. Checked the pad with a meter, got continuity through there. WD40 in the connector as well, solid connection. Seems odd that it worked ok for a few weeks, then crapped out again. As you suggest, back to get it looked at by the dealer, I...

    Brake pad warning light

    Following on from my previous thread about changing the front pads on the A4, all went well. However, after a couple of weeks, the warning light is back on :( So today, took the passenger side all apart again, checked the brakes, all good. Checked for continuity through the pad, again, all...
