    Audi service plan

    Looking at the Audi website: Fixed-price servicing < Servicing with Audi < Owners area < Audi UK the service costs are quite a lot cheaper. However it does say up to and including 2.0, no mention of 2.0T. Also, I have just moved over to Audi from VW and the garage for my old Golf price matched...

    Thinking maybe wheel bearing might need replacing?????????

    I am not saying that it's the wheel bearing going, but the golf I have just sold for an A3 had stepped tyres. I took it to the garage thinking it was a wheel bearing, but they said it was due to the tyres being stepped. The sound was like a dud-dud-dud-dud noise that of course increased with...

    MK5 GTi to A3 BE

    Hi guys, thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. I decided to change as my GTi does around 31mpg on a good day going to work. Also being 4 years old, I now have the related costs. Thought about changing and the A3 popped in my head. Like I said, I've yet to drive one to compare the two...

    MK5 GTi to A3 BE

    Hi everyone. Been looking on this site for a week or so as I am thinking of changing my '06 Golf GTi for an A3 170 TDi BE. Just wondering if anyone on here has done the same and what are there views of the change?. I am going to look around one tomorrow to see what I think and make a...
