    Moving on - my view on the S3

    No apologies for terrible SPAG - it is what it is! Whilst having been active on other forums (namely motorbikes) I have never really posted on here but have found it a very useful source of information. I bought my facelift S3 new in 2017 and as the PCP came to the end and being in positive...

    Covid 19 and car sitting idle

    Car is parked on the street - any recommendations for a charger that can be kept under the bonnet? Sorry I'm useless at these things! Currently the car is only doing about a 4 mile round trip on our weekly shop to Sainsburys and back!

    Facelift Show me your paddle shifters!

    Presume it is because I have small hands (go on say it... :icon thumright:) but I sometimes only catch the end of the paddle. I feel like they need to stick out some more. Anyone seen any aftermarket like that?

    Traction light

    Want to jump in on this. I do enjoy a little 4 wheel drift when its a bit wet out I put the ESC in sport; did this recently on a slightly bumpy road and the TC light came on and it sounded like the front end was bottoming out (that scary crunching noise - it definitely wasn't). Any ideas? Also...

    Facelift Google Earth not working?

    Yep, mine went down twice and I switched it off. First time I was near home so it was ok, second time when I was on some A roads. Had to pull over to the side of the road. Quite distracting actually, dangerous how attached we are to these nav's now....

    Servicing Price Match

    Pretty crap response. Apparently they have opted out of Audi's price match guarantee and offered a 10% discount! I'm not going with them. We don't really have many options in London now with Audi City (and Victoria) shutting down earlier this year. Trying Jack Barclay in Wandsworth but they...

    2018 A7 shown to employees

    Just as a heads up... I understand that the new A7 will come out late this year with cars being delivered in Q1/Q2. A few weeks ago it was shown to select employees of Audi along with the new rs5 training. Design wise it follows the new A5 design language - it looks very similar apparently...

    Insurance help

    28 and haven't got any NCB. Have always been a named driver as didn't drive much living in Central London. I'm guessing it is to do with how many S3's are stolen and because I'm leaving it on the street?!

    Quote has been declined on AXA... It seems to be when I put the car model in. Works with every other one... Admiral on Money supermarket is giving me the cheapest quote at £1300. I was expecting about £1k

    Insurance help

    I'm picking up a new S3 on Thursday and thought that getting my insurance sorted would be a doddle. Low and behold, the quotes I am getting are crazy. A lot more then my Jeep was when I was a teenager. I live in central London and the car will be left of the street so I wasn't expecting cheap...
