    Are you enjoying your new RS5?

    Who’s managed to crack it? Do we know? Anyone reputable? Thanks, James.

    Rattle on start up.

    Thanks Donald, once again that’s reassuring. I don’t suppose you know what the noise actually is by any chance? More out of curiosity now than anything.

    Rattle on start up.

    Thank you mate, I feel a tad better if it’s been happening on yours for over a year, as you suggest it’s unlikely to be an issue or something serious.

    Rattle on start up.

    Quick update......I’ve now taken a video ( which for some reason I can’t seem to upload ) but the clicking now I’ve listened properly is coming from the left exhaust pipe? Does this make any sense to anyone? Thanks again. James.

    Rattle on start up.

    Hi all, I recently bought a 67 reg rs5, having owned a pfl Rs3. Knowing all about the annoyance of stone chips etc I thought I’d get ppf applied as soon as the local dealer could fit me in. So fast forward a few weeks and I got to pick my car up yesterday morning having been without...

    Star button on steering wheel.

    Evening all, I know this is posted in the wrong section but it’s quite a generic enquiry, and I’ve always found this the best place to find what I’ve been looking for. I used to have a pfl rs3 8v. On the steering wheel I was able to use the star button to skip my music tracks forward a song...

    RS3 going

    No next car for a few months I’m afraid, we’ve bought an x trail a while back for the seven seats and with baby no 4 here I need the money outta my car for a bigger house, hence the reluctant sale. You guys on here probably have a better idea than me what it’s worth, but having spent over 2 1/2...

    RS3 going

    Hi all, just putting a quick message on here to say I’m about to put my car up for sale if anyone’s after one before it goes on autotrader. 41,000 miles ( I’ve had it for nearly 2 years and 27,000 of those miles ) its got a stage one mrc map which I’ve had from near enough the word go, had...

    S3 stage 2 v RS3 stage 1

    Just my input here. I went from a stage 2 s3 which was immensely quick. I then bought a pfl rs3 got it mapped immediately of Mrc ( just what you do isn’t it! ) My s3 wasn’t slow by any means, by the time I sold it, it was approaching 400bhp whereas my rs3 came out at 428bhp but with a tonne more...

    Revo big brake kit

    thanks for taking time to write that up, I think for the extra money they definitely sound worth it. Gonna contact the dealer today and see what's what.

    Revo big brake kit

    Apologies if this has been covered previously, but can't find a thread with particular answers so posting here. My car had a service, oil change and gearbox oil change at Audi today and whilst in it was noted my discs are I quote ' worm below minimum thickness '. Audi called and told me, i was...

    Changing from Pirelli to MPS4s advice....

    It wasn't me that posted, but can confirm on my 8v pfl that putting them on did nothing but set my tc off constantly. At best part of £800 too, wasn't impressed as switched from contis which imo are the much better suited tyre.

    Rs3 won’t start gearbox malfunction

    I had something similar with my car quite a while ago. my mrs had took it to work, got in to start it at the end of the day and it displayed some kinda fault that she couldn't remember, she tried several times whilst speaking to me on the phone to start it ( now it displayed no fault ) and it...

    Dealers take the Mick

    yeh there is this option but I'd rather be honest regarding it, I mean if I bought a car in good faith and it got a warranty claim rejected for some reason which was previous to me owning it I'd be a bit miffed. It's no big deal I was simply venting my feelings at the time, over it now. I...

    Dealers take the Mick

    Cheers for your advice gents, I'll look into em for sure. I knew with it being modified it was always going to be worth less to a dealership, but thought I'd get at least a couple of quid more than that. Shame too as there Q7 was lovely. Oh well, rant over. Cheers again
