    Jacking points A3 / S3

    Save your money...Do not need pads. All that is required is a block of wood that sits behind and proud of the seam. 30mm x30mm x 150mm. Used this method many times on Mk5 and 7 Golf plus 8P A3.

    VAG-COM needed in/near Lincoln.

    Okay no probs. If you have researched what coding needs changing, I'm happy for us to walk through it. As VCDS covers Audi, VW, Seat, Skoda, and some Porsche and Bentley models, your A6 should pose no problems.

    Fog light bulb change, anyone?

    Bulbs should be no more the 4k colour temp to match the xenon headlight colour. Higher, and lamp will start to develop have a blue ting.

    1.2 TFSI vs 1.4 TFSI

    Audi did choose to use the 1.4TFSi in the eTron for good reason.. Work it out.

    Jacking points A3 / S3

    Try this link. Albeit for the MK7 Golf, I believe it applies to the A3 which both share the MQB chassiss. Click Here

    Service Reminder Rest

    Tried to rest the Service reminder via DIS and VCDS, but cannot. Any ideas / trick I'm missing? It'll reset the oil interval but not the service one.

    FBMFSW. Buttons that don't have a function?

    Apologies hijacking this thread a little. On the 2008 TT with flat bottom MFSW, with factory fit blue tooth and non-stanav head unit, which button does one press to answer and incoming call?

    Audi A3 E-tron

    Having driven one, it does a fine job. Many economy option settings. Not as fast as figures suggest. With it being so new, I'd wait a few years for bugs to be ironed out. Even the preproduction car had software bugs.

    Great value?

    No reason why an S3 oil change should be that different. OK sump requires 5.7 litres. IMHO... Rip off. With car ramp, both filter changes should take no longer than 30mins. In fact access to pollen filter is so much easier than previous A3.

    Poor DAB signal

    Aerial's ground needs be firmly connected to car's metal work. Not sure how one can check that without taking head unit out.

    Sunroof rattle

    Around the rails and inner trim. Be sure to cover the seats with a cloth to avoid them being sprayed to. Then cycle the roof fully a few times.

    Nice weather = more mobile speed traps

    My gripe, too many in car gadgets and phone distract drivers.. So lower speed limits may be a hidden bonus...

    Year old S3 value!

    Yes you did. Was only trying to give advice. No offence taken. I had a demo in fairly high spec S3 s-tronic via JTC600 on Lincoln. Mental car to drive and exhaust noise in sports mode was well wicked... Found steering too light, auto main beam too slow to react, lane assist distracting, Tpms...

    Year old S3 value!

    Check out the Golf R... might be better value for money. I think S3's will be thin on the ground and costly. Almost makes one buy a brand new one from a broker, with hefty discount.
