    Is that Thompa Sport good for servicing etc?

    Wheel balance weights

    I too am looking for an answer on this. I have had tyres fitted in lots of difference places (including Audi dealers multiple times) and they all rust up after about a year. So does anyone have an idea where you can get the weights Audi install in the factory?

    How to setup wireless apple carplay

    My Car play was working wirelessly, however, I switched back to the Audi mmi over it and now I can’t get CarPlay back on? Any ideas?

    The M135i buttons and screens aren't as good quality as the S3. They don't go as bright and are certainly not as sharp. The seats aren't as good and the nappa leather with the diamond stitching just feels classier than the leather you find in the M135i. Both have low down scratchy plastics. The...

    How do you figure the M240i has the better interior? Because motor journalists told you? I have been in both the M135i and S3 8Y one after the other for 24 hours test drives. Contrary to what motor journalists told me the S3 had the better interior. The motor journalist world has always been...

    ‘In production’ - how long

    They take 4 weeks to build once production starts. My car was meant to be Tango red with basic spec. They amended it's spec 4 weeks before it's build week. That's the latest the spec can be amended.

    Exhaust sound of the 8Y S3 when revved at a standstill

    I drove a dealers car with 3500 miles on and it certainly popped and banged a lot louder than my current car which now has about 500 miles on it. Maybe the engine just needs to bed in.

    Anyone else underwhelmed by the B&O system?

    Is it a lot smaller then? The one is the Q2 was the size of a space saver spare wheel :)

    Speed limit display

    Shouldn't Audi pay for this for us seeing as it's quoted as a feature in the hand book?

    Anyone else underwhelmed by the B&O system?

    Where is the subwoofer located? My last one in my Q2 was in my boot. This one isn’t on the S3 8Y?

    Speed limit display

    Any update on this? Judy took delivery of an 8y S3 and no speed limit in nav.

    New S3 Carwow drag race

    Yes the rate is very low and they're also putting in something like £4500 dealer deposit contribution which helps. The M135i is a very nice car mate and you'll be happy with it. I spent 24 hours in both literally 1 after the other, dropped the M135i back at 1pm and was in the S3 by 2pm. It...

    New S3 Carwow drag race

    Ok I do apologise. The M135i is far better value but the quality isn't as good as the 8Y S3 - after spending 24 hours in both, if it was i'd be an m135i owner by now no brainer. I prefer the S3's on rails feeling whilst driving also, it feels much more planted and solid on the road. The M135i...

    New S3 Carwow drag race

    Wow steady on you really have some hate there! The Piano black plastic looked and felt classy to me even with fingerprints on. Nothing bad about the way it looks, it looks better than the 8V as it's evolved from it. Have you even been in/near/driven the new S3 or does your hate just come from...

    Boot space on S3 Sportback

    Yes it' easy done with a drill. I did it in my Q2 Quattro for when we needed extra boot space for a holiday.

    New S3 Carwow drag race

    Lol i'm laughing at all these replies on here bashing the 8Y. I owned two 8Vs both Daytona Grey in S line spec. I got my first in 2013 and it just felt so premium, the pop up screen was so good back in it's day. My most recent car is an S Line Q2 2.0 litre Quattro. The interior looks similar to...

    Q2 Audi Q2. What were Audi thinking?

    Cuke surely with it costing similar to an A3 and only been ever so slightly bigger it's aimed at A3 owners who are looking to jump ship to a Q car? Therefore it should, imo; adhere to the same quality standards. The more i have it the more i like it but probably because the A3 is beginning to...

    Q2 Audi Q2. What were Audi thinking?

    Yes i did and look at highly specced s line, full nappa, digital speedometer, colour changing dash strip. It gave the impression of better than it was and i trusted Audi. Audi's have never let me down and i put a bit of blind faith in their usual strong interior quality. I feel Audi are...
