I had one of the original skoda VRS's - diesel 130 in a polo chassis - it was utterly insane. Like driving a skate board with a breeze block on one end...
Whole chassis would twist under heavy cornering. Now the S3 seems very stiff; but with a heavy iron block on the front it would unbalance the...
I can believe dropping it into s mode while simultaneously flooring it would confuse the hell out of the dsg.
I usually put it into s mode and wait a few seconds for the box to select the gear for the speed I’m at. Then I floor the hell out of it.
Roof rack - run the risk of dropping the bike on the top of the car and denting, lots of **** falling off the bike on to the top of the car and finally the low height restrictions which can spell death for your bike, car, rails etc.
Tow ball is the way but pretty expensive.
Looks exactly like the cts- and to be honest can a pipe really be that different ?
To me the quality looks the same; the welds look big and neat like the cts. The screw mount is exactly the same and is better than the stock mechanism.
Absolutely bang on; this is not free money, they are not doing this out of the kindness of their hearts;
PCP is what it is - you are paying to rent a car and nothing else.
I hate to sound old and miserable but to get ahead in this life one must learn discipline. Hell there are some great...
That's interesting - I have a rattle from the front of the pano roof - right where the cut out is - if I place my hand on it it stops. It's like plastic creeping against metal. Wonder whether the fix is the same
Yeap - rattling cars is the one thing that sets off my OCD. Unfortunately I've owned quite a few cars that despite the price always developed rattles. My old skoda Fabia though was cheap as chips and never succumbed to them.. it did though leak through the rear doors which was quite annoying...
Thanks for the response. Mines in on the 30th to Audi for a haldex fluid change and I've indicated this problem. Looking at the design it looks all one piece unless pulling apart the light/roof cluster revels some fastener/clips:skyhooks
so this rattle is getting worse and it's definitely coming from near the pano; however last night I discovered that if I apply my hand to the edge of the lining near the light cluster the rattle stops. Anyone have any tips on how to take apart the headlining on this area ?
@steeve - I was watching one of the youtubers with an RS - apparently the driver seat is on stilts! - but some company have a mounting kit which drops the seat down to a far more driver focussed height.. fezza is his name. He also has the dubious honour of having had his engine replaced..
I'm afraid we'll disagree on that. I've seen them redesign apis constantly to waste users time. Software engineering time is expensive; bodging a wrapper around a wrapper is hardly elegant or easy to test.
I'm pretty sure Audi doesn't have the man power to play this game nor the time or risk of...
