    Sportback rear door external trim replacement

    Thanks, am hoping the dealer will get the part in time to fit it before I pick the car up on Tuesday. They are being replaced on a new used approved car I've bought, but I need the car Wednesday, so if they aren't fitted I'm tempted to tell them to just mail them to me and I'll fit them...

    Worth extending the 3rd party warranty prior to selling my car?

    I'd PX it if I was looking to buy another Audi from them, but looking at maybe another 997 or a Maserati GranTurismo

    Worth extending the 3rd party warranty prior to selling my car?

    Am selling my S3, as I want a V6 or V8 again. Car is currently stage 2+ and I had no luck trying to sell it as it is, even though it was priced the same as a standard S3 with same spec/age/mileage. So it is going in to AmD next week to be taken back from stage 2+ to stage 1, have a service...

    Recommended spark plugs for stage 2+ S3 (8P)

    Car has been set up for 2+, with revo software. Been getting a too rich when idle error (came on, on the way home from garage). Going back to have it checked out, but some searching showed someone had a similar issue that was resolved with new plugs. Was wondering what plugs people would...

    Fitting aftermarket TBE from 5 door to my 3 door, HELP.

    From memory the downpipe and cat section is the same on the milltek 3dr and 5dr. Cat back has a different part number. My guess is that it is more likely the centre section that is longer, but you should be able to confirm by looking up all the different part numbers (assuming its a milltek)...

    Haldex Oil & Filter Change on A3 with Generation 2/3 Haldex?

    Was told mine was a gen 2, but had a cover over the filter more like the gen 4. Anyway to tell from vcds? I saw something on the hpa website to tell gen 2 or gen 4 based on serial number, but no way to see the number physically.

    Anyone have accurate info about Haldex servicing on a 2010 S3 Sportback...?

    It's not even that simple, gen 2 is also sealed for life... But CAN be serviced

    Haldex Oil & Filter Change on A3 with Generation 2/3 Haldex?

    I've been told and also read that Audi did not use the gen 3 controller at all, meaning our cars would be gen 2 or gen 4. Cost me £99.95 for the haldex service, should have asked about a discount as there was no filter!

    Haldex Oil & Filter Change on A3 with Generation 2/3 Haldex?

    Also, do you know what version of Haldex you have on your 2007 S3s? Apparently the Gen 2 unit was only used for about a year on the S3 (2008), earlier ones may have Gen 1 and later have Gen 4.

    Haldex Oil & Filter Change on A3 with Generation 2/3 Haldex?

    According to my service book it was done around 30-35k (can't remember without looking in it). So this is the second time at around 65k. Apparently ETKA lists the wrong oil for my car, but they are using the oil for the TT / R32 with the same unit and rear diff. Still no part number for the...

    Haldex Oil & Filter Change on A3 with Generation 2/3 Haldex?

    Was booked in today for a Haldex Oil & Filter change on my '58 S3 (Facelift Sportback). Apparently my car has the Gen 3 Haldex system, which is sealed for life and so there are no parts listed for Oil or Filter based on my VIN number. According to my service book, an Audi dealer did an oil...
