    Alloy insurance recommendations

    Does anyone have any recommendations for alloy insurance? My new X3 has 21s and I’ll be sharing with the wife who isn’t used to a car this size so I suspect they’ll be getting kerbed sooner rather than later

    Q3 New Q3 hire car

    I had the new Q3 35 tdi s line hire car this weekend and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was, the interior is light years ahead of the previous version and it’s miles better than the current generation A3 (which I’ve never been a fan of). Touch screen is tricky to use whilst on the...

    Damaged bumper

    So I've just got my car back from Tyneside Audi after they fixed my parking cameras and carried out some service campaign fixes (it was with them for a week and a half) and I've noticed some damage on the front bumper Can this kind of damage happen because of a stone or have they bumped it and...

    Winter is coming (sort of)

    With winter fast approaching, I'd be interested to know what winter tyres you'd recommend. I've never had winters fitted but with my A4 being the first quattro I've owned, I feel as though I should invest in a set to get the full benefits of it over the winter months. Along with that, what are...

    Manual mode

    3 months in with my s tronic and I'm starting to miss having to shift up and down manually. I've tried manual mode a few times but it just doesn't feel right without a clutch pedal and I find using the paddles on the steering wheel incredibly awkward I've seen a few posts on the S3 board...

    2 week review

    So i'll have had my car for 2 weeks tomorrow and in that time I've covered 1500 miles in that time so I thought this would be as good a time as any to post what I think of it! Picked her up from Coventry Audi and fair play to them, their prep was spot on according to my detailer. No swirls or...

    Value of new car when insuring

    When you get insurance on a brand new car, what do you tell the insurer is the value of the car? Putting down the price when the value will plummet the moment you leave the forecourt doesn't seem right and makes no sense when you have gap insurance in there as well covering any lossses

    Running in tdi engine

    do you need to run in a Diesel engine on a new car as the rpm are so low anyway or do you just drive them normally and hold off really putting your foot down and straying over 2000 rpm for the first 1000 miles?
