    I’ve got the Revo cone, but a video of the sound would be good to hear!

    Potential new owner advice :)

    I came from an Abarth 500c Esseesse with Monza; big Brembo Brakes; Koni FSD and all options except Sabelts. The Abarth, along with a previous Alfa GT3.2 v6 are probably my favourites, but not much between them and the S1. As a city car - the Abarth is hard to beat- S1 came to 95% of the Abarth...

    4D number plates!!!

    Can’t beat timeless pressed metal imho. Never understood what the 4th dimension is with 4D over 3D?

    New Audi S1 Probably Won’t Happen, Despite Rumors

    The S1 was a skunkworks car. I reckon in years to come it’ll be collectible and possibly have cult status.

    I was about to ask the same question! Any chance of a video so we can hear it?

    Another speeder....

    Depends on the kit- there are at least 6 suppliers approved in UK I can think of and they won’t all work the same way. I think I read that some kit has a range of 1km or more. It’s mostly based on military targeting technology, but it all has to go through what is known as Home Office Type...

    Another speeder....

    All depends on the kit used. Don’t assume they all work the same as different forces buy different kit. I’ve been in the back of a van where you have to move the target yourself - mainly on multi lane roads. Certain vehicles are known to give false readings so some forces prefer manual...

    Hi. I’ve got the Bose system and I’m getting resonance / vibration from one of the passenger side speakers (front). Usually on traffic announcements, sometimes with music. It happens when the volume is 8 or less. Anyone else’s had similar issues? Wondering if a speaker needs replacing...

    Big power cars or light low power cars, which is more fun?

    Wife had Lupo GTI on 24hr test drive years ago. The 6 speed was probably one of the best engine and gearbox combos I’ve ever driven. Unfortunately for me she went for a Clio 182 - nothing wrong but the Lupo GTI was special. Other small cars I’ve had are Daihatsu Charade GTti (x2) - japs were...

    Another speeder....

    Can’t remember the thresholds for speed awareness but IF you were detected there is a chance you might get a course offer, and going by my experience they aren’t too bad. Assuming you are the registered keeper and the technician got you - they are human despite what we think!... They have to...

    The clip is a right pain unless you have the right pliers. I used a strong cable tie in place of the clip as I had normal pliers that damaged the clip during removal.

    Seatbelt reel replacement

    anyone know how much / how many hours labour the replacement of a rear passenger side seatbelt reel would be roughly in an A1? No idea if it’s an expensive part or takes a long time?...

    Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio or RS3 Saloon?

    It’s a tough choice as my first German is the current S1 which I plan to keep for a while but the RS3 really empresses me. I’ve had various cars including 3 Fiats, 2 Alfa’s and an Abarth and they have all been fine reliability wise. Agreed that Audi quality is better. Go drive the Alfa first...

    Another speeder....

    Slightly out of date convo - but speed on green camera tech has been around for around 10 years. The ones being converted from wet-film to digital will gain “speed on green” but it’s really nothing new. Just wait for the latest tech that combines spot speed, average speed, red-light and ANPR...

    s1 aluminium gear knob

    Thinking Audi needs a “heated knob” option - reminds me of how cold our FN2 Type-R knob was!
