Removed spare wheel etc and took it into my local indy garage (Audi specialist) at the weekend but it had dried. They tried spraying it with a hose for 20...

    How to remove coloured marks from the back of the seat?

    I've got a few marks on the back of my seat so wondered what the best way to remove these was before I give it a go. They're supersport seats so I didn't want to just dive and in make it worse! I've tried my thumbnail but that doesn't seem to work!

    Super Sport seats option on a 2016 S-line?

    I've found a 184 2016 (16) A3 S-line I like the look of- some good optional extras and in my price bracket. However, it has super sports seats. I have a pdf of the 2014 price/options guide (as I saved it when I got my 2014 A3 sport) and it shows in there that the Super Sport seats were only...

    Thinking of getting a set of winter wheels/tyres. I have 18" wheels on my 2014 A3 sport (the ones that are similar to the VW Monza design), so I was thinking of a set of the standard 17" 5 spoke alloys (part 8V0 601 025 BK) If I got those wheels, do I need a specific tyre size or is there some...
