    COD Motorway speeds

    For me, speed is not the factor that determine when 2 cylinder mode cuts in, its down to the revs. Anywhere around 1500-1800 mark, it'll kick in. Lower than that, it won't. I can be driving at 30mph in 4th and it's on the borderline and I can feel it transferring between both modes. Have to say...

    Front brake calliper removal

    Thanks @SevenW , I'll have a look over the weekend. Thought whatever was in there may have dislodged by now, but the score mark seems to be getting deeper!

    Front brake calliper removal

    Saw this, but it's for an 8P. Is it the same for an 8V?

    Front brake calliper removal

    New tyres...

    I also got them to price match the 4-wheel laser tracking with a local garage. So may be good also getting some prices as no doubt they'll try and get some money out of you for that as well!

    Car vibrates/rough when idle on neutral gear

    I have a 6mth old 1.4 COD and have thought the same thing. Sometimes it feels like the engine is 'bobbling' about under the bonnet when its idling. Even lifted the bonnet and had a look, but the engine was gently vibrating on its mounts. My thought was that the revs were dropping too much, but...

    Who to trust to fit my tyres?

    That's what I thought.....only to find a scratch on the alloy following tyre change. Luckily I had taken a photo before so they couldn't really argue!!

    3rd brake light - LED's stopped working

    Cheers chaps, much appreciated for the info. Didn't want the spoiler to be taken off to get to the back of the light fixture, as no doubt they wouldn't have put it back on to my standard! :grinning: Now knowing the above, it's good news.

    3rd brake light - LED's stopped working

    Had a chat with the garage, who said that it should be covered as its only 2 1/2 mths old. So, earliest warranty appointment date is start of July. Still unsure how big of a job it is?

    3rd brake light - LED's stopped working

    So, my new '16 plate car is now 2 1/2 mths old and this morning looked in a window whilst reversing only to find 2 or 3 LED's not working in the 3rd brake light in the spoiler. Is this covered in the warranty? Had this issue with a Golf I had and they said they would have to 'cheese-wire' the...

    Central locking issue

    Had this the other day. My boot wasn't fully closed. It was shut and looked shut but was only on the first latch. Opened and shut it again sorted the issue.

    Facelift THE NEW AUDI A3 (2016 FACELIFT) – STILL AHEAD OF THE CURVE

    Quite interesting earlier.... Dropped the car off to get the jerkiness investigated ( 1.4 COD ) and was talking to the dealer about the facelift model. He was all 'I don't really know anything'. He did mention that xenons come standard but when I said about the LED's are standard on the S-Line...

    Well spotted, the info released on 4th and currently on the Audi media centre has the (standard on SE Technik and above) omitted.

    Facelift THE NEW AUDI A3 (2016 FACELIFT) – STILL AHEAD OF THE CURVE

    Unknown at present, but the SD nav is for the 'lower' res screens. Now the 7" screen appears to be standard, wonder if the option for the SD nav remains, or it'll have to be one of the aforementioned navigations if you want it?

    Facelift THE NEW AUDI A3 (2016 FACELIFT) – STILL AHEAD OF THE CURVE

    The release from Audi said optional MMI navigation and MMI navigation plus. Be a shame if there isn't some form of satnav as standard, as a lot of cars nowadays has one. You would expect a car >25k would!!
