    Does my A3 have Pre Sense ?

    Yeah, that's what I was expecting. My sisters Q2 has a collision radar Pre-Sense, but I was surprised mine had nothing in the MMI regarding this.

    Does my A3 have Pre Sense ?

    I have a facelift 2016 8V Saloon but don't see any Pre Sense settings in the MMI? I read that all cars from 2012 have the basic Pre Sense as standard.

    Does anyone else suffer from bird poo?

    My car was only a day old when one got baked into the roof, which was only left for a matter or hours. I was fuming. The road I park on is a nightmare, there's a fight over the parking spaces between the trees as bird shittings are VERY frequent when directly under one... tree sap is *******...

    Audi A3 8v 1.4TFSI 150 odd engine sound

    It does my head in! For me, it activates 2-cylinder mode when I press the throttle very gently whist maintaining a speed of 20-30ish mph... the sound will remain unless I press the throttle down further or take my foot completely off, then the sound will instantly stop and the '2-cylinder'...

    Audi A3 8v 1.4TFSI 150 odd engine sound

    It’s the Turbo Actuator Linkage rattling caused by the cylinder deactivation. It’s a horrid sound especially when cruising on back roads with cars parked either side, the sound bouncing back and forth - it’s embarrassing as people always notice it and turn around. I’ve had my car a few months...

    Audi S3 8v 3dr. Springs/spacers

    Not got an S3, but have a S Line Saloon which I believe has the same stock suspension. I recently got the Eibach Pro kit fitted which lowers the car around 30mm I believe and H&R Spacers 12mm rear / 10mm front. No issues going over speed bumps, no rubbing coming off my steep driveway - no...

    Rough remap figures for 150bhp S line?

    Thanks for that, puts my mind a peace a little. I'll cycle through the modes and see how the car responds. I expected them to explain the process beforehand what to expect, and then at least get a print off of the performance results as proof or something similar! It felt as if nothing had been...

    Hi, do yo guys know what gains are to be had for a FL S line Saloon 150bhp? I took my car to a place near me that had great reviews for mapping this morning and got a call back a few hours later to day the remap had been completed. When I arrived they stated the guy who did it had a meeting...

    Oil pressure regulation valve electrical error

    I had the same fault on mine as well as a few others. I got my local Audi specialist to run a diagnostic health check whilst I had the car in for a wheel alignment and the only things that flagged up where: - Oil misting around the throttle valve - Low brake fluid So maybe the fault relates...
