    S1 - OEM Audi black 4 ring badges for front grill & rear hatch

    Believe you me I like to carry out modifications properly too. No cheap eBay rubbish. I always go for OEM replacements. A good example is fitting the Audi OEM puddle lights for the doors. Audi do not list them for the S1, yet the puddle door lights from more expensive Audi models like the S3 or...

    S1 - OEM Audi black 4 ring badges for front grill & rear hatch

    No - I can confirm that the rear OEM black Audi Q3 4 ring tailgate badge is absolutely identical to the OEM Audi S1 tailgate rear chrome badge in height and length.

    S1 - rear number plate : Help please

    Hi, Just need to know the distance between the OEM screws holding the rear number plate on please. I’d like to put on a shorter plate for my personal registration, but still need this new plate to cover the two screw holes as I’m going to stick this plate on with double sided 3M tape. My old...

    Heater getting barely warm

    Hi - I’ve not had this issue, but I did get told by a friend with an S1 to remove the little nylon net bag containing white granules in the coolant filler bottle. These bags sometimes burst and the granules flow round the coolant system and block the heater matrix. So check your coolant filler...

    S1 - What tyres ?

    Think you’re right and I have to buy a set of 4 tyres. So going to go for the Michelin Super Sports and keep at the 35 profile. I’d like to lower the car in the next couple of months too. So don’t want any agro with rubbing and I’d quite like to get the wheel arch gap eliminated as it looks...

    S1 - What tyres ?

    Many thanks for your reply, it’s much appreciated and that’s what I’m edging towards. Do you ever think it’s worth going up to a 40 profile instead of the 35 as I think Michelin do PS4’s in 225/40 R18 ? Many thanks

    S1 - What tyres ?

    Many thanks for the info. I think Michelin do pilot super sports in the 35 profile but that tyre model is getting on a bit.

    Hi, Does anyone know the measurement between the two rear number plate securing screw holes on the tail gate? I’d like to get a smaller length number plate for the rear but obviously need this plate to cover these OEM holes in the tail gate. The standard plate that I have at the moment is...

    TPMS - coming on every ****** week !

    Hi, not really. But strangely the TPMS light hasn’t come on in 3 weeks. It used to come on nearly every week or so. Then wouldn’t come on for a month. I’ll change the 4 tyres as planned before the next MOT, and see how that goes. Otherwise I’ll get the ABS sensors checked out. Thanks

    TPMS - coming on every ****** week !

    lol - many thanks for your help. I knew I needed a set of Michelins and was really disappointed when I realised they didn’t make PS4’s. I thought the Super Sports were a much older model and was uncertain about going for them, but as there’s really nothing else I’ll order a set next month. Cheers

    TPMS - coming on every ****** week !

    Hi Phazer, Yep - how did you know? Can’t wait to get rid of them and replace them with Michelins - sadly only super sports. No PS4’s or 5 available in 35 profile.

    TPMS - coming on every ****** week !

    - nor mine usually. But I bought this S1 three & a half years old with 2,500 miles and one owner. Managed to add another 10k miles on it in the last year. It’s a great little car. Hoping to do some mods to it this year. Just got to do some reading as what the best options are.

    Coolant temperature gauge - how accurate ?

    Oh ok - that’s good news. Must just be an S1 thing. I usually drive about 4-5 miles before driving hard. Although I would like to try and fit an Oil Temperature gauge. Apparently ‘Defi’ gauges are a decent one to instal. Just trying to find out more about them on here. Many thanks

    TPMS - coming on every ****** week !

    Hi, Many thanks for the reply. No I don’t think so. Think the tyres are all about the same tread level, but I’ll check in the morning. Although they will all need replacing this year, due to age rather than wear. They’re starting to crack and was picked up as an “Advisory” on the last MOT. Thanks

    Defi oil temperature gauge ??

    Hi, Has anyone fitted a Defi oil temperature gauge in their S1? Just wondered what they are like? And where did you instal it on the dash / centre console? Many thanks
