    2014 S3, MMI, Nav Plus, Map /MMI updates help ?

    Whoops, bit too quick typing and not engaging brain - I meant reversing camera retrofit (with moving guidelines) not rear sensors..

    2014 S3, MMI, Nav Plus, Map /MMI updates help ?

    PM'd you last year for your planned visit north which got cancelled. Still want the rain sensor/auto lights + rear parking sensors fitted + firmware update (?) and would prefer you to do the work. Also thinking about front/rear dashcam. If this and works others can come up with can temp you...

    SD sat nav on purchased car

    Just did a search on eBay using the pn you quoted and it threw up a couple of matches: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F333485774987 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F312905090227 Hope you find...

    LED Bulbs causing DAB Radio Interference

    ...and that's why I like this forum. Much easier than taking out the bulbs - although there must be an issue with the DRL bulbs. I'll be able to see if there are any others causing the problem. Cheers.

    LED Bulbs causing DAB Radio Interference

    That's what I thought, but some of the bulbs are a pain in the backside to change. I guess do it right or not at all. Will start with the front DRLs because as soon as they come on the reception goes off - without any other bulbs being on. On a separate matter, it was a pity the last Scotland...

    LED Bulbs causing DAB Radio Interference

    Hi DJAlix, All front bulbs (incl fogs) + rear reversing bulb were from t8ups. The other rears I bought from Classic Car LEDs website (as some of the bulbs t8ups had would have needed me to cut/file the hole in the lens for the bulbs to fit and I didn't want to do that). With engine off and...

    LED Bulbs causing DAB Radio Interference

    Seeking some help/ideas. A while back I updated all internal and external lights to LED because I hated the yellow halogen bulbs. The problem is that unless I'm in an area with a strong DAB signal, the reception drops out. Parked up with engine/lights off DAB radio works fine. Turn on lights...

    What do you guys think of these ?

    If you like them then why give a monkeys what anyone else thinks? I've got them on mine and like the look and I think they look good on a white car. Bonus is being able to open the windows slightly when raining without it coming inside and it stops them fogging. For me the increase in wind noise...

    Facelift Scrape to bumper / boot area

    I've ordered a LOEW-CORNELL fine paint pen after reading a post by @jassyo06 in the detailing forum: https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/posts/3397103/ I got hit by a small asteroid which has left its mark on my bonnet (no dent fortunately) so hoping this will do the trick. YouTube video shows it in...

    Advice needed – Retrofitting Aluminium Pedal Covers (A3 Sportback)

    Tried putting the cover in boiling water and it wouldn't go over the pedal! £14 off ebay so not OEM. Taking off the whole pedal to get better access was my last resort - but bothered it would trigger faults (?). From looking online it seems there's only 1 retaining screw and l had assumed...

    Advice needed – Retrofitting Aluminium Pedal Covers (A3 Sportback)

    Yep, right way round but it refuses to go over the rim of the existing pedal no matter how hard I try. Why it couldn't have been a push fit like the other 2 pedals is a mystery to me.

    Advice needed – Retrofitting Aluminium Pedal Covers (A3 Sportback)

    I planned on retrofitting the aluminium pedal covers I bought off ebay. Brake and clutch pedals were changed without a problem. The accelerator pedal on the other hand has been a total pain in the backside. I’ve seen the YouTube videos and tried fitting them from each side, putting vaseline...

    Best snowfoam and pressure washer?

    I would suggest giving the Karcher outlet website a look for refurbished kit. Bought mine here and the quality is spot on. https://www.karcheroutlet.co.uk/
