    Carista App Now Avaliable For the 8V A3/S3 - PFL & FL Covered

    Hi everyone, I’ve read through this thread looking for an answer and couldn’t see it, although my eyes may have gone cross-eyed with all 15 pages! In the process of retro-firing power fold mirrors to a FL 2017 S3. I can see a lot of people have enabled mirror dip on reverse with success but...

    Audi extended warranty

    I’ve just started looking into this as my S3 is nearly 3 years old too. Judging from other threads on the forum on this topic £450ish seems to be what people have been paying. The Audi website won’t let me get a quote yet though as it says I am still in the warranty period.

    Faulty start/stop, MIL on, speed sensor?

    Just to (hopefully!) close the loop on this one, got a call from the dealer today to say that my car should now be back to normal and is ready to collect (Christmas meant a long wait). The day before it went to the dealer I went to start it and the battery was dead and it wouldn’t start. They...

    Faulty start/stop, MIL on, speed sensor?

    Hi guys, long time since I posted anything on here and unfortunately my first post in a long time is due to an issue... Car is a Feb 2017 S3. Earlier tonight start/stop showed on the dash as an error, revs got pretty lumpy and then car sounded like it was running on all cylinders. Yellow /...

    Misty windows and drainage hole?

    There is a drain underneath the battery tray which is notorious for getting blocked - it requires removal of the battery to get at though I believe so make sure you have things like stereo key etc

    2.0 Tfsi Pick Up Pipe Clarification....

    Interesting... Mine gets up to temp quickly and generally stays there, however if I'm driving down say an A Road and am off throttle for a minute or so going downhill, the temp will drop off 90 again until it's under load when it heads back to 90. Sign of a knackered thermostat? I just presumed...

    Parking Sensor Problem - Ecu?

    Could be a dodgy sensor. Presuming they are rear sensors, stick your car in reverse with ignition on and put your ear next to each sensor - they should 'tick'. If one or more doesn't, that's probably your problem.

    Forum Newbie, Advice For Buying..

    Very good point! I think the average takes into account each individual journey - see the breakdowns. Each of these individual journeys calculate correctly, so I suppose if I drive 1000 miles at 40mpg and 500 at 30mpg, it is calculating the average based on the relative distance of each...
