    3 door A3 and baby seat

    Congrats! There will be nothing I can say to prepare you for the journey but honestly as soon as they arrive all that nervous feeling & thoughts about how? what? If? soon disappear! I've got a 3dr A3 and a 2 year old daughter, depending on how fast and big they grow we kept her on the front...

    Recommended car body sprayers in Stockport/Manchester area

    As the title suggests, any recommended car body sprayers in Stockport/Manchester area? I need a full rear bumper spray. I'd do it myself but for the size of the area with a can I'd just want to punch myself in the face with the **** job I know I'd do lol Cheers, T.

    General opinion on 1.8T FSI Black Edition manual?

    I loves mine, had it for nearly a year and so so happy with it, money well spent I'd say.... and the lower insurance is a bonus. :)

    Something to put you off that "trip to the Nordschleife"

    /forehead slap man, watching that first one just makes you go "ouch!" I reckon he was going to hit that wall even if he had tried to power out of that, it would probably have hit the rear then... EDIT: scratch that, he would never have corrected it due to his speed.

    Common things to be stolen off an A3?

    Yeah, its a ***** state of affairs, eh? I can understand why the caps, badges etc...[certainly not agree with it mind] but wiper blades? haha!! maybe the credit munch is that bad? @beanoir: to a point yeah, I do think people get duped without realising it but I suppose there are other avenues...

    Lowered but getting rubbing....

    yeah, it probably isn't as bad as it sounds, its certainly not a continuous rub just on deeper dips and with some heavier weight in the back - 40/50kg+ I'm reckoning. Screw? oh aye, whats this then?

    Lowered but getting rubbing....

    haha yeah, I could stick my foot between the wheel and the arch. What was the difference between the SE and Sport for my year of A3? I can see the difference in the spec of new models on the current Audi website but not necessarily looks-wise.... hmm, how would you know which...

    Lowered but getting rubbing....

    Haven't got any spacers yet but looking at probably between 5-10mm if I go down that route [dependant on advice I guess] shocks have done 22k, factory standard - it was sold as uprated sports suspension but I think thats bullsh*t, unless it did come on the SE? [but I ain't holding my breath...]

    Lowered but getting rubbing....

    Hey guys, just looking for a little advice. I've had my A3 put on 45mm H&R springs & geo realigned from the guys at Awesome GTI and it looks so much more meaner and is now well planted :eyebrows: [they were my only option for springs as there ain't much choice for my engine & year of A3]...

    Decided to have a bash at refurbing my S3 wheels....

    haha!! communal S3 wheel doing the rounds, noice. Looks like a good job and as said, it must be pretty satisfying to see good results. I've been looking into doing this, what did you use as filler?

    ***STOLEN*** A3 2.0T Sportback DSG (SPORT) ***STOLEN*** (My Story)

    Hmmm.... I'm living in Stockport so this ain't the best news... there are quite a few A3's around here and I live on a pretty crowded cul-de-sac it's a nightmare for parking at the best of times plus with terraced houses easy to hear everything that goes on. Gutted for you, hope it comes back in...
