    Part-Exchanged A3

    I today signed the dotted line and part-exchanged my A3 after 9 months of ownership. It has left me with £4,000 of negative equity but at least the car that’s been giving me so much trouble will be gone. I’ve swapped it for a Peugeot 208 Black Edition as me and the girlfriend are saving for a...

    Facelift A3 Window Fault

    My car has another fault! So far I’ve had a handbrake that auto-disengages (neutral gear sensor replaced), an ABS fault where all the wheels lock up (garage couldn’t replicate), rear parking sensors that aren’t available (not yet looked at) and now a front passenger side window that goes down on...

    Facelift MY18 Audi A3 Recall

    Defect Details The hardening process for the rear wheel bearing housings may not have been correctly performed. In the worst case this could lead to a fractured housing. Should a fractured housing occur there would be abnormal noises bad tyre wear and a theoretical possibility of wheel loss.

    Facelift Rear Sensors Issue

    Had Audi Assist out tonight as I had the tyre pressure warning light come on whilst driving home. It turned out a pot hole from the weekend had buckled an alloy so I’ve ordered a new one for £200 (OUCH!) :’( At the same time the rear sensors stopped working all of a sudden. On the MMI (when in...

    Facelift A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI (150PS) Mods?

    Hi all, I have started modding the A3 and am wondering what the best mods are for a TDI engine. I'm already thinking of a remap once the warranty ends (if I can wait that long) but is there anything else that will help? I saw a lovely APR intake on another post and am basically wondering what...

    Facelift A3 Brakes Locking Up

    Hi all, My A3 Sportback has been locking up at times since I got it in March. It used to happen when I was at higher speeds and braking sharply so I expected it and I’d say it was normal. More recently though, at lower speeds 20-30mph when braking with a bit of force, all four wheels lock up...

    Crashed Audi Loan Car

    Hi all, While my A3 is with Audi, I was given a loan A1 Sportback to use while my car is in the workshop.... ..... I was wiped out by a van who swerved from lane one into lane three because he sneezed. Damage says it all:

    Facelift Audi Assist.... Again

    Hi all, Earlier my A3 would not start. You'd turn the key but it would be really stiff and not start the engine. The MMI would come up a little bit before disappearing back into the dash. After five minutes this solved itself (like the other three times it has happened) and I drove away! Now...
