    Rs3 ,dsg drive to neutral

    All autos do this. Just a case of getting used to not going for the gears with the left hand. I have to laugh when the mrs drives my A4 auto, her left legs going and keeps reaching for the gear lever at junctions!

    s3 or R32

    I never really have understood why the mk4 R32 holds more weight in vag circles than the newer mk5? Personally think the mk5 in the right colour, leather buckets and right wheels is a lovely thing. It's not all about outright speed, at cruising speed the noise of an R32 is gorgeous.

    s3 or R32

    get an R32 while you have disposable income and just enjoy the noise. you can have the more sensible S3 when you are older and a bit more boring! You wont get away with the noise an R32 makes with a mr's and nippers on board in a few years! I have owned V6 golf's and driven S3's and would have...

    Recommend me a decent budget home CCTV kit

    Thanks for that, I have been to maplin to see what they have on offer and they seem to have a really decent 1 camera kit for £169. From what i have found the wireless kits are no good for my potential positioning so a hard wired kit is the way to go for me. I was impressed with the quality of...

    My audi a3 3.2 v6 quattro - valuation needed

    I think £4250 is realistic price. The mods will put off more people than they will attract. Akoya isnt the most desirable colour. It's a tad miley. I personally like it though.

    Car Won't Start, No Dash Lights

    Have you contacted the company (BBA reman) I recommended on my above posts? The guy I spoke to was confident they would be able to diagnose and fix the problem.

    Buying an A6 Avant - any watchouts?

    Good cars but not without their faults. 2.2diesel's stretch the timing chain, eat oil at an alarming rate, DPF fail regularly. And they are well known to self destruct engines by as little as 40,000 miles....get a petrol!
