    My NEW RS3 has exactly the same issues as my previous 8V

    Yes, and it came right back up. I didn't top it up as when the pressure was released it was at max.

    My NEW RS3 has exactly the same issues as my previous 8V

    The coolant issue only appeared yesterday at 8.5k miles - but I figured it must be the same issue as my previous RS3 and I checked and it was. I remember Audi told me previously that this happened "because it was a performance engine" LOL. The TPMS issue would only happen on LE cars - I don't...

    My NEW RS3 has exactly the same issues as my previous 8V

    Has anyone else with a LE has temperamental tyre pressure sensors? Since it got cold a few weeks ago they keep telling me my front tyres are low pressure even though they aren’t! I need to take it to Audi but because I know its simply dodgy sensors I don’t think it is worth doing in any rush.

    My NEW RS3 has exactly the same issues as my previous 8V

    My previous glorious sounding RS3 that I did 75k miles in has two annoying issues that were not fixable; not serious - just annoying. - Squeaky brakes - The engine coolant would get sucked under the minimum line and set off the engine coolant warning. A quick unscrew and it would release the...

    RS3 can no longer be ordered

    I think you all are overlooking a key part of this message from Audi. That is already placed orders are not guaranteed a car. They may cancel new orders, the fact it even says that suggests to me it will happen. I suspect they will stop production at some point and just cancel anything that’s...

    The long wait

    Talking about Porsche; about a week ago I got to drive the new Macan T, Cayenne Turbo GT, 718 GT4 and GT3 Touring. I had about an hour with each car.

    Free 3GB Data Plan

    Which is a pure rip off… That is NOT enough data if you were using the built in streaming all year and no other options to use any hotspot.

    Free 3GB Data Plan

    Apple music is also available now in the media online section - but the issue is you can’t connect the car to your phone as a hot spot - or replace the built in SIM. If you want to use the built in streaming then you have to use the built in SIM card and the data isn’t cheap or enough to make...

    Whining noise on reverse?

    Now I have squeaking on breaking like a ****** bus! Plus the noises when reversing. I had Audi Assist (AA) come out to look at the car. Unfortunately, I got a young guy who didn’t even bother jacking up the car to properly look at the brakes but he said he thought it was brake dust or something...

    Whining noise on reverse?

    I don’t think this is heat related although it’s intermittent and only when reversing and I can’t feel anything. Just hear a noise which stops when I press the brakes. It reminds me of the squeaking breaks bus noise I had on my 8V which came and went but happened when breaking not reversing!

    Whining noise on reverse?

    I remember a few people mentioned this before but I had this issue for a few days after I got the car and then it stopped. I thought maybe it was down to the car not being driven much as it was fairly new. But over the last week, it has started doing it again. When I reverse I get a loud...

    Audio Underwhelming?

    To be clear I’d still suggest getting the B&O as whilst it is not as good as the 8V it is still better than the standard speaker system and not choosing it means leaving out other valuable options that improve the car and make it more valuable for future resale.

    Audio Underwhelming?

    It is missing ”mid” which the 8V had - to me it doesn’t sound as good as the mid range is too muddy because you can’t adjust it.

    Audio Underwhelming?

    I agree the 8Y isn’t as good as the 8V - There is a sound setting missing - treble, mid and base - should be there but I think mid is missing.
