    My S3 :(

    Cheers buddy. When I first got it I wasn't too sure on the wheels either. Kind of grew on me after time. I rarely get to drive the car because of where I work. So rather than me paying to keep it the garage thought it was time to sell up.

    My S3 :(

    Well I never really got time to post pictures up, but I'll be parting with my S3 soon. I honestly can't criticise the car. I came from a 1.4TFSI A3 and I've loved every minute of it. The power, handling and even the mpg wasn't as bad as people make it out to be! As it's being sold I managed to...

    I want to keep it full Audi because I'll be selling it soon. Always looks better even though the specialists give more attention to the car!

    Audi S3 major service, prices?

    Got the service coming up soon. Best price I've got is £509. This will include brake fluid and haldex oil change. Is this a reasonable price or is there something better out there? Also they said I will need the spark plugs changing, in the service book it says this should be done at 57,000...

    Approved used, service question?

    I bought my S3 about a month ago, when I bought it I didn't notice that the major service was due within 3000 miles. I've done about 1500 miles and now the service is a 1000 miles away. Should the dealers have done the service? Does anyone know what the policy is on this? Thanks

    girding/scraping when pulling away

    I had the same kind of problem on 1 of my previous A3's. Very intermittent, I left it for a couple of months and the problem went away. But I reckon it was something to do with the exhaust. Check the clamps, etc...

    4 Wheel Alignment - S3

    Hi, does anybody know the best place to get a full 4 wheel alignment in West Yorkshire? The steering feels a bit indirect and it's slightly off to the right. Is it worth getting the geometry checked as well?

    RNS-E coding

    Well on the Audi website it says the Iphone will sync just like the Blackberry 9700. The 9780 is more recent and isn't mentioned on their website.

    Water/coolant temperature problem

    This is my fourth audi in recent times and it's the first time I've seen it happen. When it moves more than the needle width it's a problem I think.

    Water/coolant temperature problem

    My 2008 S3 water temp seems to drop every now and then after it has hit 90 degrees. Even after a long 1 hour drive on the motorway the temperatue just slightly drops and then slowly goes back up. I've put it on a VCDS and there aren't any sensor faults. Any ideas? Thanks

    The awful A3 dipstick

    I know what you mean, I had to use a tissue and just put it flat on there to see the level. Funny thing is, I have a mk4 golf and that probably has the best dipstick ever made. Why couldn't they just keep it that simple!

    A3 stolen...

    I've always had mates with me. I don't care if they feel intimidated. It's me selling the car and making sure I don't lose anything. I always ask to check the license before they get in the driver's seat. Not many criminals will carry this around and it's just a good excuse to identify them.

    Buying an S3

    Buying a used one. 58 or 09 plate. That's one of the main reasons I was going for the blue as well, it's only available on them models. Considered the grey but to me just seems a little dull.
