    Morning all. Just come back from 5 days away. Car was parked at airport. I flew back late yesterday afternoon, walked to car, opened it as normal, and drove home. No problems at all. This morning, I go to car, and it's not opening using the buttons on the key. The key itself obviously...

    Recent mods to my Black Edition and a shout out to Oxford Audi

    I'm in the UK at the moment, and driving up and down the country visiting a few friends as well as getting some work done to my car. First problem was a low coolant light shortly after I got off the boat in Weymouth last Friday night, but it went away so I ignored it! Then the oil light came...

    Trying to price up a few mods - get a pro or enthusiast to fit them?

    Hello guys. I'm getting closer to the time that I'll be bringing my car to the UK for a bit of blast (gets a bit tedious driving everywhere at a maximum 35mph!) So, as my sig suggests, there's a few things I want to do to the car whilst it's in the UK: 1. Fit Audi bluetooth and SDS; 2. Fit...

    Just fitted my TT air vents!

    After waiting 10 days for them to arrive and breaking 3 finger nails and shredding one finger removing the old vents, I now have my Audi TT air vents fitted. Many thanks to Cryptic23 for his guidance on the ebay seller and hints on how to fit them! A little expensive for a cosmetic change...

    RNS-E nav dvd's - what's on each disk?

    Evening guys. I have a 2009 disc 1 for my RNS-E, but not disc 2. Am I right in thinking that disc 1 has Western Europe, and disc 2 Eastern Europe ..... or is it not that simple? Cheers, Chris

    Anyone bought an RNS-E from car_navi_parts?

    My chrome-buttoned RNS-E has just arrived from Lithuania :thumbsup: Meant to be a key code in with it, but can't see it. There are a couple of 4 digit numbers on stickers on the top of the unit .... is it one of these? The guy's not coming back to me as quick as I'd hoped. Cheers, Chris

    Genuine Audi rear number plate holder?

    Evening guys. Is there such a thing as a genuine Audi rear number plate holder? My rear plate has screws right through one of the numbers (looks shoddy) and so I'd like to tidy it up a bit. I just want a plain black holder, not something with Audi Deutschland, etc. printed on it. Any...

    S3 accelerator pedal suitable for a 2009 A3 2.0 TFSI (6-speed manual)

    Hi guys. I am being told by my local dealer (who are about to received my brand new A3 - doesn't inspire me with confidence) that there is no metal accelerator pedal that will fit my car. Unless I am way off the mark, I assume that the S3 accelerator pedal will fit my car? It's a 2009...

    Quick part number request ...

    My local dealer is asking me to pay for the S3 mirror covers and pedals I ordered to go on the new A3. They've just passed me a screen print of the parts, but it's clearly missing something (probably the S3 pedals). Would someone be kind enough to confirm what parts these numbers refer to...

    RNS-E vs. aftermarket double din - pros and cons

    Hello all. My new A3 is due imminently, and aside from the Bose speakers that are specced with the Black Edition pack, it has the standard Symphony (?) head unit. I've been running an Alpine iPod head unit (iDA-X001) for a year or so now and enjoy the interface. It's mated to the JBL...

    Remap questions - Brand new car

    Hello guys. This forum is certainly the most active UK A3 forum, so of most use to me. Lots of interesting stuff! I've ordered the 3-door, manual 2.0 TFSI. This was my 2nd choice as I couldn't quite stretch my finances to a new S3 (which is what I lusted after .... those buckets are sweet!)...

    Hello all. I have ordered a 2.0 TFSI black edition which will come with the Audi Concert, the Bose speakers and the iPod adaptor. I would like to upgrade the stereo at some stage for a double din aftermark stereo, but after browsing these forums for the last few days I've seen grumblings...

    S3 aluminium wing mirror backs

    Hi there. Can you tell me if the backs of the S3 wing mirrors are available seperately (the metal-look ones) or if you have to buy the entire mirror? If so, how much? Thanks, Chris
