    Unexpected quattro tyre wear

    Yep exactly the same problem with my 3.2. Both front tyres totally ******** on the inside, 3mm of tread outside, legal limit on inside. I'm quite (very) paranoid about keeping my tyres in good shape, so this came as abit of shock when I noticed. Tyre place said same as everyone else here - speed...

    You can start the DSG in neutral. You can not remove the keys though. The 3.2 V6 battery is not a convential battery, please check before using various charges on it.

Recently replace back tyres with brand new designed vredestein the Ultrac Sessanta , these thing have...

    how lon do points stay on your licence?

    3 years for totting up, 4 years on your licence and 5 years for insurance purposes. Try Liverpool Victoria, they are not interested in anything less than 9 points or a ban as the result of a single incidence of speeding.

    Instrument lights

    Thanks for the replies so far but... In the dark (my garage) the instrument lights are off and in bright sunlight they are on which I don't get. Surely it would be better for them to be on in the dark so I can see the dials and off in bright sunlight where I can see them due to the sunlight.

    Instrument lights

    Yes and I know I'm probably been thick but the way dials are set out means they require a different form of lighting to say an headunit? It would seem more obvious that in the dark the dials would require backlight whereas in the sun you can see them (i.e. they don't rely on contrast as much as...

    Instrument lights

    After months of looking at my dials and deciding if they are lit or not I have come to the conclusion that there is light sensor which determines light and level during the day when the side lights are off. Now this system seems to work the wrong way round, surely the dials should light up in...
