    Facelift A3 1.0 tfsi Sportback Sport mini review

    I've had my 1.0 tfsi for 2 weeks now and can safely say that it's a superb engine. I came from an A3 2.0TDI and before that a vRS 1.9 TDI and it definitely doesn't feel inferior. Granted, both previous cars were pretty brisk going through the gears but the 1.0 tfsi engine is still very capable...

    IPhone 7 plus

    Good people of ASN. Does anyone know if the iPhone 7 Plus fits into the armrest space, with the MMI lead in and all ready to go? I’m looking to get one in the next day or so but probably won’t if it won’t fit. I have searched but I cannot find the answer. Thanks all.

However, on my way back again (after leaving it parked for a couple of hours) I noticed that the battery light momentarily lit up on the dash. I was literally...

    What's my issue then?

    Ok, weird one this because my symptoms seem different to everyone else's I've read about. Basically after a 14 mile drive into work yesterday and as I was crawling into the yard at work my temp gauge was reading just a tad to the left of 90 degrees. Once the engine had warmed up on my way in...

    Has paranoia set in already?

    Folks On my way home from work tonight, about 10 miles into my journey I smelt a coolant-ish smell in the car, it lasted only momentarily but it was pretty strong. Then, about a mile later whilst in 4th gear the car seemed to judder (but only for a split second). This alarmed me so as I was...
