    Own up... Was this one of you? ;)

    Surely by folding in the electric mirrors he could have parked even closer. Clearly not trying hard enough.

    Really interested in how you're getting on as I am thinking about doing exactly the same thing within a few months. A3 3.2 Quattro S-line DSG to A5 Sportback 3.0 TDi S-line S-Tronic I'd especially like to know what suspension you now have and how it compares to your old A3 3.2. There are plenty...

    This thread just makes me want to cry all the way to the cash machine :(

    As Wiki is user-editable (natch), perhaps someone would like to do an edit :)

    dsg driving technique

    I don't bother swapping out from D (or from +/-) if I think I'll only be stopped for a short time. In general I only move to N in situations where I'm putting the handbrake on, i.e. if the stop is long enough to use the handbrake then use N. and take your foot off the footbrake. But I do tend...

    Can you move the rear view mirror up slightly...?

    It is done regularly by AutoGlass etc when they replace a windscreen. Mine was replaced only a couple of weeks ago, so obviously they must have detached and re-attached the mirror.

    Problem with 3.2Q DSG brakes?

    Mine does this every time it's parked up for more than a few days. Got back from two weeks' skiing yesterday and I KNEW it was going to do it even before I got in at the airport. A few minutes later (assuming you use the brakes in that time) and it's gone.

    Trev, I'll give you a ring from the hospital in Moutiers if there's a problem...

    Snow Chains for 18" 3.2 Quattro

    Jamie, did you buy two pairs? If not, did you just put them on the front wheels? Presumably they worked OK for you - you didn't say :)

    Snow Chains for 18" 3.2 Quattro

    Just been thinking about next year's skiing. Well, why not, there's no Summer happening in the UK this year... I was considering driving to the Alps from the UK and spending a couple of days in several different resorts over a couple of weeks, instead of a week or two in one place. Almost...

    Calling all 3.2 DSG owners!

    I get this as soon as I open the door. No need to put the key in the ignition, turn on the electrics, or start the engine: It just happens. I have always assumed it was the fuel pump and have never worried about it.

    Can I fit a 40" TV in an S3?

    I hope you mean it fits VERTICALLY. You don't want to be carting around a big sheet of glass horizontally if you can help it!

    Ambient LED install help

    I assume you mean the LEDs in the ceiling near the rear view mirror? Before you go for this idea: I did it about a year ago (on a 3.2 not an S3) and it's easy enough. I do like the glow that it provides, BUT... The intensity of the glow is linked to the dashboard light brightness...

    3.2 V6 Engine

    Must have... The ability to accept unfounded criticism from S3 drivers who don't understand that neither car is 'better'; they're just 'different' :) Oops. Please don't start again - sigh. ...and deep pockets. Just renewed my Tax Disc: £400. Yikes!
