    Radio, MMI Screen, Ignition Issues

    I think it was something to do with the ignition position when the my plugged the computer in to reset the oil service... The power button on the centre console wasn't working either and would only mute the music.. Even holding it wouldn't do anything. If I muted it and put the screen down, get...

    Radio, MMI Screen, Ignition Issues

    I've searched many forums and not finding any answers... here's the downsides of having an oil change at other garages, apposed to Audi... The S3 has been in today for an oil change and all is well on that side of things but they have reset the service light and I think this is why I now have...

    First Oil change and service advice

    Thanks all. I've had a quote for £150 oil change from a none Audi dealer but they are a partner with BOSCH and specialise in VW, AUDI, PORSCHE ETC. Not sure what to do - will try other dealers I think. I've not warmed to North Wales Audi @pburv they never seemed very welcoming but if their...

    First Oil change and service advice

    Thanks all, I will definitely get my own oil. It's the inspection I don't understand the cost. Will ask them what the oil change alone is. @pburv why avoid Shrewsbury?

    First Oil change and service advice

    Currently on 12,500 miles. The car has not had anything done apart from 2 front tyres last week. The dash is saying I need an oil change in 300 miles. I've booked in for the oil next Monday at Shrewsbury Audi who said they will also do an 'inspection'. I asked what this was and they said...

    Literally cant wait to be a S3 owner !

    Just to add to the mud flaps debate. Was doing the weekly wash today and this thread sprung to mind. 10 months down the line, no chips..

    Literally cant wait to be a S3 owner !

    Congrats on the purchase, the build up to collection day and the day itself is a great feeling! Don't do the mudflaps... I live in North Wales where the roads are terrible. I've had my car 10 months now and not noticed any wear or stone chips. Remember, Audi's body preperation, paint, coats and...

    S3 is going :-( A3 S-line is coming :-) #GUTTED

    It's not about the depreciation. Mortgage companies are taking what I paid for the car as a debt and deducting this figure (30K) from the amount I can borrow. Even though it's on PCP... I'm not sure if a PCH would be better from a mortgage point of view? Just waiting to hear from the stealers.

    S3 is going :-( A3 S-line is coming :-) #GUTTED

    It's all about what gives you the option to do what you want and the DS3 does that for you :) I'm thinking keeping the S3 means we can afford 30K less on a house. But then looking at down-grading, if it was an A1, we would only be able to get 10K more on a house. Not sure if it's worth giving...

    Ahh sorry to hear. It's not a nice thing to have to do! What have you gone for? If another Audi, what did they do for you?

    S3 is going :-( A3 S-line is coming :-) #GUTTED

    I may have to do this soon.... Looking at a house and the S3 is restricting us :sob: How long did you have your S3 for @David83S3 before changing? How are you getting in the 1.4?

    New S3

    If you're happy with the monthly payments and you like the spec, there's no need to hesitate! Get it collected tomorrow :D

    New S3

    4 years isn't a problem, it will only mean you reach positive equity a little later than you would if going for a 3 year deal. The mileage limit on the finance doesn't have anything to do with what Audi value your car at (if that makes sense). Only the TOTAL mileage will count towards the car...

    New S3

    Sounds like a good deal to me. As others say, as long as you don't owe more than what the car is worth when you want to change, then you will have positive equity. :grinning: Even if you wanted to change early and you're in negative equity, you just pay what ever the difference is between the...
