    sat nav update question

    The car will do this automatically, once you accept the update it will complete in the background, even with the car turned off. Next time you get in it will tell you that the update has completed. Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk

    Buying advice

    Don't forget the first owner was Audi in this case, I bought mine from a dealer where it had been a staff car, so I was the 2nd owner at only 9 months old. It only had 4k miles and launch counter was zero, apparently was the HR Directors car, who was a mature lady, so it was basically just run...

    Buying advice

    If the car is set to long service intervals, isn't it based on how the car is driven - i.e. the car will tell you when it's due - which I thought could be up to 18 months or 18k miles? In which case if it is a Sep 2017 car, it will be due a service in Mar 2019 at the latest? You can pull this...

    Folding mirrors retrofit

    Unbelievable! I'll have to watch out for that when buying some mirrors! If I were you I'd sell those dimmimg mirror glasses separately, they're hellishly expensive! Just put your old mirror glass in your new folding mirrors. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Additional Security.

    I got all my new locks from lockandkey.co.uk, there is lots of info on the website about lock snapping and how to measure your existing euro cylinders. You can also get all locks matched so the same key opens them all, which keeps the keyring a bit simpler / lighter. I got the avocet anti...

    Yeah, I think you might have to add on the cost of the 'dual zone proximity sensor' to that price. I really like it though, good deterrent, especially at night time, and you can switch off the proximity sensor with an extra press on the lock button if you're in a place where it would get...

    Hi, yes, it's an add-on Clifford alarm that integrates to the factory system via the can gateway I believe. So it adds microwave and vibration sensors to the existing setup, no extra keys or fobs, just works with the factory key/fob. Ask at your local Clifford dealer. Sent from my SM-G920F...

    Autowatch Ghost is good at what it does, but it isn't a deterrent as the would be thief doesn't know it is fitted! I had a clifford add-on alarm installed in my RS3 which has a proximity sensor - walk near the car when locked and it starts flashing it's indicators and chirping quite loudly -...

    So many problems since buying the rs3

    To do cctv properly you need a dedicated recording box which is hidden/locked away somewhere with its own back up power. If a professional thief is about to attempt break in, they will cut phone and power. With newer houses having meters in outside boxes the latter is too easy - literally open...

    So many problems since buying the rs3

    I lived through the 80s with a Sierra Cosworth so I guess I'm used to the 'stress' of owning an awesome machine - it still is totally worth it though, lovin' owning the RS3 [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
