    Annoying wiper click at top.. driving me insane!

    Did you change your wipers recently? Mine knocks the top of the windscreen surround after I swapped out for some Bosch Aerotwin. Its now worn the metal away after I ignored it. Anyway I dremelled the plastic clip at the end and it is now clear.

    2011 8p3 coming home lights possible???

    You can only do ‘manual’ coming home on halogens with no ambient light sensor. On mine after I switch off engine and before opening the door I can flick the high beam and my front fogs and rear park lights come on for about a minute and then dim. I use this often.

    My A3 1.6 FSI Build/ Ownership Log

    Glad to see you going back to a SLine grille - never understood this obsession with the honeycomb ones which don’t fit in with lines of the fog grilles - unless those also have honeycomb mesh as well. Just a mish mash of styles ... imho.
