    Wheel Bolt Covers Issue

    Yep, same problem, just bought 10 new ones! Discovered that the new ones are a much tighter fit than the ones the car came with which were rattle fit at best, despite having the same part numbers. Will probably end up replacing all of the remaining ones as well!

    However, the brochure does have a footnote to note that you need to consult with your dealer for the introduction date, in otherwords not available at launch.

    Next rs3

    Information from my local dealer suggests launch of the new RS3 will be sometime around June 2015. Like the current model, numbers will be limited, my own dealer is only being allocated 6 with one them being a demonstrator. So I took the plunge and reserved one!
