    AFTERMARKET STEREO / BOSE SOUND SYSTEM

    Once again, many thanks - and I now know what Quadlock refers to! Just realised - do I need something that ensure the steering wheel controls still work????

    AFTERMARKET STEREO / BOSE SOUND SYSTEM

    Many thanks once again. Yes I'd imagine the wire is already in place for the current system to work. but if anyone knows the exact parts I need - that would be fantastic. At present I'm pretty sure the Bose stuff needs a PC9-416...

    AFTERMARKET STEREO / BOSE SOUND SYSTEM

    Thanks D3mon - and yes hopefully someone can fill in the blanks. A chap who I have found locally to fit the whole thing did mention about a wire needing to go under the carpet to the boot - hence why I'll pay him to do it properly, rather than me potentially wreck the car! I've taken some pics...

    AFTERMARKET STEREO / BOSE SOUND SYSTEM

    I forgot to add - I believe I need the PC9-416 amplified adaptor leads to make the BOSE system work (I believe the car to be fully BOSE'd up!), but is there anything else I need guys and girls??? Thanks. Oh - and any hyperlinks showing in my posts have nothing to do with me - they seem to link...

    AFTERMARKET STEREO / BOSE SOUND SYSTEM

    Dear All - apologies if this thread has been covered elsewhere (I've had a quick search but couldn't find anything exact). In short - I have an A3 140 TDI S-Line Black Edition (unfortunately bluetooth is not fitted to the car - and I want to make calls and use my Sony phone for music, DAB...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Well - I'm at that stage of thinking I need to get the car off the road and get the problem sorted. Rattle sound like something metal spinning and rattling - noise has got louder in last couple of days. Points to note: 1) No rattle when idle or idle and in gear; 2) Rattle when coasting out of...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    OK - now I'm pretty convinced it's the gearbox. Have done approx 180 miles since the first post I put on here. It's a metallic rattle and I can hear it whilst accelerating (until the speed is such that tyre noise and engine noise drown it out), but last night I deliberately kept dropping it into...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Quick update - it's a metallic rattle - drove with windows open and it sounds almost like a exhaust rattling within a metal hook - or a can with a couple of pebbles in it - and still makes a noise when coating with engine off.

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Thanks - however I can't "feel" anything obviously loose. I may get the guys near where I work who service the fleet vehicles to have a look - they owe me a favour!

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Looks great - how do you find the power? Like you I'm no speed freak, but I do like a bit of "ooomph" under the bonnet that will allow for a more nippy feel when driving and a sense of more driver engagement.

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    If I was a drug dealer it would be an R8 (and an Aventador)! No, work alongside the Police on pub/club related stuff providing legal advice so plate is useful when turning up outside places in the early hours. OK have just tried running the car up and down the hill - noise is definitely coming...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Yes came with a private plate JG55COP - why a 55 I've no idea when it's an 07 car?! However the plate comes in useful for work!

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Your's is a Black Edition - is it petrol or diesel? Only The Black Edition looks the best - and I find the 1.6 FSi is not very nippy - so was thinking of going 2.0L TFsi next time, maybe 1.8L TFsi. Never had a Diesel but I expect the 2.0L TDI 170 is nippy enough. Would like an S3, would love an...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Yes I have seen it I'm sure.

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    That's very kind of you - if you car is the one in the pic I may have been giving it envious glances when passing!!! Will update this post tomorrow - many thanks.

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Many thanks - I'll hope for option 3. I've read all of the other "rattle" related posts - and whilst I'm no mechanic - I do wonder whether the brake disc protector could be the culprit. However that's me wishing for a cheap solution. The thing that surprises me the most is that I bought an...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Fingers crossed it then does make a noise with engine off! I forgot to add that the noise (rattle / flapping - though it's more of a flap IMHO) seems to run at the same speed that the wheels turn - hence why when accelerating or at higher speeds I can't hear it (perhaps because it's flapping /...

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    I will try that tomorrow - what would it mean if it rattles when coasting with engine off?

    Hi - Newbie - Rattling Problem

    Hello All - just joined as this appear the "place to be" for all A3 related stuff. I have a 2007 1.6 FSi (Petrol, Manual 6 speed) - getting it last August was a sense of achievement - however, my precious car has recently developed what could best be described as a noise / rattle from what I...
