    Black Edition

    Thanks for this LongWait. I did a search on the Dension ipod unit and it's much better. So i'll be ditching the Audi one and saving my pennies for the Denison model.

    Black Edition

    Guys, What is it that's so bad about the Ipod dock in the glove box? I've not had the order confirmation so there could still be a chance to change, save my money and get the Denison kit. Which looks awesome if it works the same way as shown above.

    A3 Racing Blue Mica, yes or no?

    Abyss, not a problem mate. I'd also found the 2 pictures that you've posted when i was trying to confirm the name and find out some details. It will look great on the RS3, if you get one as i've just read the thread about delivery times and it seems there worse than the times for the black...

    A3 Racing Blue Mica, yes or no?

    1inchpunch, yeah the car is up at Glasgow Audi and it a seriously spec'd up A3. Thanks for your post, it's really helpful. If a similar colour (Looked up the Le Mans Blue and it's not far off) was a ****** to keep clean then i'm not better off than I would be with a black car. Plus I'll have...

    A3 Racing Blue Mica, yes or no?

    Gents, I believe the colour is Racing Blue Mica, it's an audi exclusive colour and therefore comes with a rather high price tag. Is it worth it?

    My A3 Sportback 2.0tdi 140 Sportback S-Tronic - 1500 miles in 2 weeks - mini review

    Thanks for the replies guys. The car will be a company motor and the CO2 figures are improtant for tax and the MPG is important to me. Audi configurator shows: 6 speed manual combined MPG - 64.2 with co2 at 115kg/m S Tronic combined MPG - 57.6 with co2 at 129kg/m The kg/m...

    My A3 Sportback 2.0tdi 140 Sportback S-Tronic - 1500 miles in 2 weeks - mini review

    Mrash, How are you finding the car now? I'm looking to order a new A3 and the S-tronic gear box is tempting, but i'm concerned about the MPG figures. Is the S-Tronic box like other auto cars i've driven which are very thirsty? Thanks.

    8L stereo not taking code

    Hi, Hope the combine knowledge of the forum can help me out on this one. Removed the stereo in my S3 to get access to the cup holder. Re-fitted the stereo and it wouldn't work at all, this turned out to be a blown fuse. Re-fitted the stereo again and it will turn on and shows "SAFE" on the...

    What to get done at 80k service ? S3.

    imported_roydonaldson have you looked at the independent places around glasgow? A4Audi are not far out of town and could be a lot cheaper than Audi Glasgow. I've also seen on some other audi sites people calling up VW and Skoda dealers and using them for the servicing and getting it done much...

    DAS-6 Hard Paint Polishing Kits - Just £99 for Xmas!

    I too noticed this on the new site and i'm very very tempted. the only niggle i have is if i can really justify it.
