    Radio code

    If the original radio is still fitted, the ECU does remember the the radio code when battery is disconnected or goes flat. Drive it for a short time and it will sort itself out.

    RetroFit Heated Seats

    ^This^. I also wouldn't trust the integrity of those generic seat heater kits you see on EBay, cheap Asian rubbish. If you're going to do it properly use OE parts.

    A3 Gone

    I wouldn't say the seats are comfortable, they're harder than the Audi A3/S3. Lighting is a bit too much for me, like it simple as the older A3's. Depreciation on The Audi worked out at £1k a year which is good in my opinion. The A35 is the most expensive car I've ever bought but any car has...

    Rear bumper tow cover

    It's not a tow bar cover, it's a lashing eye cover.

    A3 Gone

    New car on drive MB A35. Much like my old A3 which has been great for the 8 years I owned it. Would have a S3 if it could tow a trailer but it can't, so the only other car that can tow is this.

    Anyone replaced their BKD VNT nozzle base plate?

    Well, the A3 has gone and an A 35 AMG collected today, bit glitzy on the inside but has every option in the A class catalogue, just too much to comprehend. First thing to turn off was the Lane assist, scared me to death when the steering wheel vibrated and tried to turn left on its own. what...

    Does seem like the ABS valve is blocked then. New ones are expensive

    Unscrew the bleed nipple and poke a a thin piece of stiff wire into the caliper, it may be blocked up.

    Interior light issue

    You need a meter to test for 12volts coming into the ceiling light, you'll then know if the wiring loom or light unit is faulty.

    Anyone replaced their BKD VNT nozzle base plate?

    Audi are better than Mercedes these days, especially the interiors. I'm just looking for a 4wd hatchback that has a bit of power and can legally tow. Only ones I can think of are The A35 and S3 although I'm not to sure if the new S3's can legally tow in the UK.

    Anyone replaced their BKD VNT nozzle base plate?

    NOOOOO!!! . Mines not healthy as well, turbo wearing out and stronic clutchpack wearing, probably new S3 or A class A35 on the cards.

    Poor pressure/leaking washers

    Think there's an O ring in that pipe connector, worth changing that. Disconnect the pipes coming into the windscreen jets, one at a time, and see if you get a decent flow there when operating the pump. I ended up changing the windscreen jets, rear jet and pump a couple of years ago. Ten years...

    AMD is my 'go to' Audi specialist, they know more about our cars than the main dealer. They are in West Thurrock next to IKEA , Lakeside, luckily they are not IKEA ex fitters.
