    Towbars S3

    "non towing vehicle", now that'll be a concern esp when pulling a 1200kg 6 berth caravan!, nobody has told me that before, also thought that the tow bar was a factory fit option. Anybody?

    Anti-corrosion warranty results - Please post here

    All - worth noting that Audi have re-classified the zinc oxidisation, no longer do they consider it a body work issue, but a paint issue. Result less coverage for us customers!!

    Really happy with my new purchase

    Chris, sounds like you drive like me... that being the case you'll want a brembo upgrade for the front. Even uprating the pads and discs you can still get them to fade. Speak to Bill at Badger5 - he will sort a kit, easy DIY job. Glad you like the car, enjoy.
