    Rear parking aid: fault. Obstacles cannot be detected.

    about two months on and off. Just when it gets really irritating it behaves itself. Annoying when tight parking though as you lose faith in the sensors.I had thought it was frost or condensation but the cold spells have passed now and it stil occurring

    Retro Fit HEATED Wheel

    Hi Thomas. By way of an update I now have my flat bottomed wheel with heating fitted in my 8y! got there in the end with help from a guy in Denmark who has paired a set of stalks with the right slip ring. It just needed a small harness for the power and connecting to the fuse box

    Hilarious Fake Exhaust Trims on 8Y :-)

    It’s as though the S3 diffuser is too long. It needs trimming and a few screws but they are all hidden from view

    Retro Fit HEATED Wheel

    Hi there - very frustrating as it is a minefield of parts numbers and lateral thinking - I have been told that it needs new stalks and a slipring with heated wheel wiring. As Audi don't offer this on the A3 8Y it means looking at either other models like the Q3 (but their stalks and slipring...

    Retro Fit HEATED Wheel

    Hi Everyone - I have seen a few people ask whether a flat bottomed heated wheel exists for an A3 8Y and managed to find one. An after market one which has used the favourite button as the switch on the wheel. I have asked the supplier repeatedly for instructions and all I have to go on is "I...

    Hello there - I am trying to be one of the first people to retro fit a heated wheel to an 8Y A3 - I have the wheel which is a flat bottomed S line which has had the favourite button converted to become the heated wheel button. I am really struggling to find an electrician or coder to touch this...

    Anyone tried a power/electric tailgate retrofit?

    Hi there I’m planning on doing a retrofit on my A3 SLine sport back 8y. How far did you get with tracking down the parts needed.

    HI there - I bought this kit https://www.aliexpress.com/i/1005002666496700.html and despite it saying sportback in the descrition I think it is for the saloon version only - the struts are just too industrial and short I took delivery of the kit ages ago and there are no instructions. I asked...

    Facelift heated steering wheel retrofit.

    the lumbar support is odd because it is electric and all it does is demonstrate that theyve cut corners and not put seat adjustment in. How have we ever lived without neck fans!!. On the steering wheel I have an update - late last night I got in contact with the seller using the message...

    Facelift heated steering wheel retrofit.

    I was just gearing up to try and get a heated flat bottom perforated wheel mod as it seems to be the holy grail and I am not as gifted as the guy who did the amazing job with a Q7 donor wheel a couple of years back. I bought an 8Y A3 Sportback tfsie and have been steadily trying to create an S3...
