    2019 S3 Tyre choice

    Just replaced mine and kept with the same as it came with, P Zeros. Also a 2019 car. I was happy with the performance, so felt ne need to change. Also made sure that I got eth Audi version, A0 on the wall. No idea if there is any difference to the standard tyre though, apart from £20 a...

    Extended warranty

    Wife's A4 has just passed 3 years old, 22,000 miles. Looking at getting an extended warranty, reading the booklet and there seems to be little between all components, and named components. Both exclude servicing and usual wear and tear. For the difference in price, about £70 for the year, is...

    Puncture repair or replace tyres, how many

    I came on here asking whether I had to replace all four or not. It’s my first 4 wheel drive car. I did not ask for everyone’s opinions on when to change, on the limit, 50% worn etc. Read my original post. Thanks to those that actually answered the question. To everyone else, thanks for your...

    Puncture repair or replace tyres, how many

    Some of the answers on here make me laugh. Blowouts, lol. Never had a tyre with 3mm blowout, in 30+ years. Also never had a tyre on the legal limit blowout either, too many factors of safety built in. I will be replacing all four, due to 4wd. as for always on the back, two schools of...

    Oil Level on Dispstick? Not clear!

    Looking at that picture above, I'd say the oil level was on the M of MAX. You can clearly see where the oil stops. Mind you as someone else said, very clean oil.

    Puncture repair or replace tyres, how many

    I’ll look to getting the 4 replaced. As for risking my life, are you for real? Even in the snow, 2mm is more than enough, no issues with grip, braking etc. Granted I don’t hoon around on two wheels and a door handle, but I don’t feel I am risking anything. So when do you replace, 5mm left...

    Puncture repair or replace tyres, how many

    I've a 2019 S3, and noticed today that the front left tyre was flat, like completely flat. Got it inflated again, so will see if it goes down. Rotated the wheel and can't see anything obvious. The tyres are probably around 2mm left, so getting close to the end. If I have to replace, can I...

    S3 service plan

    What do you mean, similar to Audi? I went to the website, put in my reg no, it came up with the options, automatically including the discount and I bought it. Got the agreement on email within minutes. No problems at all, no need to phone, or go to my local dealer???

    I have no official info, but understand it is an issue with the engine, and affects every brand that uses it, Skoda, Seat etc. I also understand VW group have no idea what needs to be done to fix it, or whether it’s even possible. This is from talking with various people in the VW group.

    Audi Response to Covid 19

    So what happens at the end of the month when the MOT is due?? Garage is shut, can’t drive a car without an MOT. What about servicing. If the car says service, how much leeway is allowed, before warranty is voided. Appreciate the human side of things, life is more important, but there are...

    Joining the S3 crowd

    This is straight from the dealer, I’ll detail it myself in due course. Achieving 42mpg was easy. Stick it in efficiency mode and stick to a steady 40 or 50 mph! Sometimes the heavy traffic on the motorway helps out

    Got the car, love it. Noticed on collection it has the 4 rings on the ground, wife is jealous, wants them on her A4, is it an easy change? Anyway, story seems to check out, scratches gone. Not messed too much yet, but did put it in dynamic and accelerated from a wet roundabout, not a hint of...
