    Crackling noise behind centre console??

    I'm Back!!! As some of you may remember I sold my '04 2.0TDI A3 and got myself a new 2.0T TT. Have it about 6 weeks at this stage. I actually sold the A3 to my brother and two things have happened recently that have me a little concerned about the A3. First thing was when switching on a...

    Just did a little test on mine with a thick eleastic band....don't laugh!! :D Looped the band under that portruding bolt and started the engine. No effect and the band came straight back out without pinching. So its not the bolt vibrating against the other side of the Belt pre-tensioner...

    engine noise on 2.0 tfsi

    BINGO!! I thought I was mad!! I generally am very paranoid about any strange noises any time I get a new car. Picked up a 2.0T TT last week and after my brother got a puncture in my old A3 I was paranoid about a hissing sound. Wasn't coming from the tyres. I then checked under the bonnet...

    Retrofit interior light package?

    Just fitted my Leds today and had a look at them in the dark tonight. I'll say this, they were not a waste of €20 because I always would have wondered whether I should have gotten the interior light pack. The way I look at it now is that I consider I saved €300 not getting the interior light...

    OK, so I've got the new mirrors...

    Hate to say this but to me they look like primed but unpainted wing mirrors which I have a feeling is what one of your 'minds' is telling you. Polished chrome effect for the win!
