    Map Reading Light Bulbs

    Hi all, My car doesn't have the interior light pack, so only has the one centre light above you and in the rear, wondering if anyone has replaced these bulbs with bright white LEDs (not too bright), and if so, what bulbs did you use? Were they hard to fit?

    Well.. it’s been a while since my last post, been on the lookout for an S3 saloon/RS3, changed my mind so many times, been one of those irritating customer, but I finally tracked this gem from Southport Audi. Ignore the plate, but it’s a 64, and done just over 10k! After seeing @Starry post...

    A3 2.0 TDI S-tronic "Major Service"

    Ok lads, looking for some advice/help/previous experience. Just phoned my local dealership for a quote and they have come back with £328 for basically an oil/filter/pollen filter change, is it just me or does this seem quite excessive? What price should I be looking around?

    MTM Bimotto

    Does anyone know a UK supplier for these? I had previously used Niche Conversions but doesn't look like they deal with MTM anymore. Would rather deal with someone in the UK, rather than Germany. Cheers,
