    Warranty issues after software updates

    No disrespect to the OP but like some of the replies above, I am a little suspicious. Don't know Simon at all but have seen many, many positive endorsements over the last couple of years.

    Warranty issues after software updates

    Out of interest, why didn't you get your software update done at the Audi dealer if it was still under warranty? They would have done it for free.

    Warranty issues after software updates

    Very surprised to hear this. Simon is well known on other Audi forums - I've only heard good things about him.

    Facelift Audi RS3 FL oil change

    I contacted Opie oils to ask about 5 litres of Castrol and this is their reply: Thank you for the message in, unfortunately the Long life III fluid is designed for the dealership rather than the public, you will find this is why it's only available in the 1 Litres for top up's etc. That...

    Hi My car needs a top up. Where’s the best place to buy at the moment? Also, this thread started over two years ago- is Castrol still the one to go for or is there something better now?

    Too expensive in Covid market???

    I hate it say it but be patient - many dealers are trying to put on a brave face on the current situation- but in a few months they will be literally giving their cars away.

    Will I regret a PFL RS3?

    Will I regret a PFL RS3?

    Hey, I'm only 48 - though when you're 21 you probably think that's old! In all seriousness, get a nice-ish car like a golf gti and put the rest if your money towards your future (house etc). An RS3 will bankrupt you.

    Will I regret a PFL RS3?

    I hate to say it, and obviously I know nothing about your financial position, but are you sure you can really afford it? A few years ago I moved from a TT diesel to a Golf R. I now have an RS3 (2018 car), and believe me it's a 'league up' in terms of running costs.
