    Should I repair my "totaled" car?

    I wanted to get your opinion on something... Since the car was tuned when I got into the accident, I gave the insurance company the stock parts and in exchange asked for the tuned parts since those were not covered under the motor vehicle insurance policy. I am looking to sell these (turbo...

    Should I repair my "totaled" car?

    I went to my Insurance company's claim department today to see what what happens next. They told me the car will be salvaged (sold as spare parts) and they will compensate me with a cheque of 50 k $ which is a far cry from the original 85 k $ I paid for the car 5 years ago but seems fair enough...

    Should I repair my "totaled" car?

    Thankfully just an airbag burn on my right wrist that is almost fully healed now. I got away with it this time...

    Should I repair my "totaled" car?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I agree with the above but sometimes emotions sway one to make the wrong decision. Will try to get my hands on a second hand CL550 4matic Blueefficiency as that has been my dream car for a while now but couldn't afford one new and now that 5 years have past since...

    Should I repair my "totaled" car?

    I was involved in a serious car accident when driving on the motorway and a car crashed into me while changing lanes from left to middle without noticing my presence. Long story short, I'm fine but the car is dead. My insurance company is saying that the car is a total loss from experience...

    Q3 Armrest issue

    They bend quite easily but will not stay bent so maybe some hair dryer action is required for a more permanent placement.

    Q3 Armrest issue

    Is there an easy fix for this issue? That plastic part is supposed to stay attached to the armrest but it keeps sliding out of place. Surely some hot snot would be a cheap way to fix this but I'd like a better solution as surely the stealership will be asking for a lot of $ for such a simple...

    Metal grinding sound on hard acceleration (corners)

    So for a while now I've been noticing a harsh mechanical noise when accelerating hard (right corner) makes a lot more noise then left or straight driving for some reason. It's like something goes out of alignment when the noise happens but I can't figure it out. The Audi service specialist...

    Cloud of white exhaust smoke under heavy acceleration

    So after my local Audi service center cleaned the fuel injectors, the issue persists. Last week my discharge pipe popped off and there were large amounts of oil in there. My tuner told me it could be a tired turbocharger. Could this be the case? My car only has 45000 Km on the odometer. Sure...

    Aliexpress oil catch can?

    I would like to install an oil catch can on my S3 however I'm not ready to pay hundreds of dollars for one. Has anyone got one from Aliexpress? If so how satisfied were you with the unit and which one did you buy specifically as there are many models to chose from but I'm not sure which one...

    S3 jolting in wet conditions

    That's it! Thanks for the clarification. Would setting the magnetic ride to dynamic reduce this wheel hop or is there no way around it?

    S3 jolting in wet conditions

    But it is turned off NOT on sport mode. I thought he was talking about the adaptive cruise control that brake the car if an obstacle is approaching the bumper at high speed.

    How can i tell?

    S3 jolting in wet conditions

    Why would it engage if there is nothing to crash into in front of me? Seems like a mechanical issue rather than an electronic one.

    S3 jolting in wet conditions

    Surely it should be able to powerslide without any issues as other cars do. The surface was smooth and this even happens when i spin the tires in the wet.

    S3 jolting in wet conditions

    So I was having some fun powersliding on some empty wet roads with traction off and I was getting some scary jolts (TA TA TA) and it felts like i was hitting a a sequence of potholes. Is this something to be worried about? It doesn't seem to be a normal occurrence.

    Cloud of white exhaust smoke under heavy acceleration

    There is one apparently they told me it has nothing to do with that. So much for clarification.

    Cloud of white exhaust smoke under heavy acceleration

    So the dealer called said it turned out to be clogged fuel injectors so they removed them, cleaned them and re-installed them. They want 450$ for this job is that not too much? New injectors cost that much. Apparently it's because of dirty fuel. How come we have other cars with the same...
