    I have noticed that the rear hubs are showing slight superficial surface corrosion what with all the bad weather etc. During the summer months my Autoglym trade wheel acid brought them up as good as new and for a brief period they were returned to the original silver colour. I am looking to...

    S3 Heated Bucket Seats - Temperature Issues

    I bought my 2007 S3 in June and have only recently been using the heated seats in the cold weather. I only realised there might be a problem when I noticed the passenger seat was more effective than the drivers seat on a mid range level 3 heat. I'm beginning to wonder whether i'm getting any...
