    Owners manual and audi virtual cockpit manual

    Hi, is there a downloadable version of the owners manual or virtual cockpit? I managed to sell the old s3 8p with the wrong manuals. New owner ignoring me. Audi want to charge me for the pleasure of replacing them. Cheers

    What paint...

    I have a 2010 S3 in Ibis White, the front sill below the radiator is all black and currently stone chipped to hell. I was looking for a temporary fix, any recommendations on what paint i can use? I think i will end up getting it wrapped, but for now wanted to tidy it up in the interim. Thanks

    Headlight part numbers - S3 265Ps model

    exactly! or translated - "we dont want to give you the numbers because then you can go elsewhere, but whilst you may still pay over the odds for a replacement part, we prefer you to pay an additional premium on top of this with us"

    Headlight part numbers - S3 265Ps model

    Hi Audi wont give me the OEM part numbers for the two front headlights which i need to change as the LEDS have failed, but struggling to find them online and be sure which are for the RHD model, as the web is awash with suppliers from Germany that sell on a .co.uk website but they are all for...

    This is quite worrying. I have just started looking around at changing cars and the s4/5 was on my list to try. Hmm... certainly will watch out for this in a test drive.

    You are right, ive had 2 bmws and 2 audis.... had more "major" issues with Audi, but then i prefer their overall build quality. I will leave the decision down to pure driving pleasure!

    b9 s4 v b8 s4

    Thanks. Ahh, they have twin scroll turbos which sit in the V don't they? Yes i did read about the tuning box (the one you have) and have considered that, typically steered away from those things and stick to ECU maps but might be a good temporary solution, sounds like a lot more power is...

    b9 s4 v b8 s4

    I have seen a few articles saying that the 3.0 V6 unit are the same albeit the later model has switched to twin turbo v the previous having the charger. Is this correct? I had the b8 version and with a revo stage 1 remap was pretty awesome all round. Loved the car. I ended up selling it due to...

    So, i just had it confirmed by garage (went to independent - my father in law!), and he confirms it is the head gasket, but it has CRACKED and he says they should never crack? potential warranty claim? Any opinions on this?

    Driving the wife's s3 the other day on a 60 mile journey which is mainly M and A roads. Spirited drive but not crazy, towards the end i was stuck in a little traffic, nothing major but was still for a couple of mins. Engine light flashed (yellow) and then the EPC light came on - stuck in limp...

    Gearbox Malfunction warning S4 B8

    I do around 340 miles per week, which does a good job of emptying my pocket before paying out for any potential gearbox replacements! No repeat of the incident since...

    Gearbox Malfunction warning S4 B8

    More of a reason why they should be fixing these things for free, give or take wear and tear. They also should be paying me for performing their long term road durability test for them!

    Gearbox Malfunction warning S4 B8

    Makes me wonder if there are long term issues with the s-tronic (generally) and more cars are now getting to the age and mileage whereby these are coming to light? Although DSG has been around for a while hasnt it? As A LOT of cars are going auto only, it doesnt seem right that a box is needed...
