    Do you lads watch Top Gear Oz?

    Hmm yeah just had a look at their website and it seems YouTube is gonna be the only way, unless you're into the *ahem* alternative means. Agreed, nothing will ever top TG UK, but it's something to tide me over until the next series!

    Do you lads watch Top Gear Oz?

    Hi all, Fairly new member here from Australia. Just wondering if you guys have sampled Top Gear Oz, and what you thought of it, from a Brit's perspective. The consensus over here tends to be that nobody likes it. Whilst I agree, it's better than nothing. The thing that seems to grate on most...

    Rust on my roof rails has returned!

    Uhhnn... this is kinda disheartening. Having my S3 go into the bodyshop in a couple of weeks to have this fixed, from what I know, for the first time. The guy at the shop said it happens because of the way they're assembled; ie. they paint everything, and then putting the actual rails in is...

    Cheapest way to get a new key?

    http://www.ozaudi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21938 :D Once I have all the bits I'll get the blade cut and take it to Audi to (hopefully) have it recoded.

    How to safely and effectively polish hard paints by hand and machine

    Thanks heaps Rich - great guide. I was considering getting into the machine polish side of things, but one thing that always turned me away was not knowing how destructive the abrasive polishing is. Does it wear off a lot of the clear layer? How many times could you use the above methods before...

    Request for pics: S3 with 18" wheels on standard suspension?

    Yeah, I'm just starting to wonder though if I shouldn't just suck it up. My back is kinda either great 90% of the time, or thoroughly **** the rest of the time, and if I have to drive when it's bad, that's when I have issues with the ride. Can't make up my mind - I guess ultimately I won't...

    A spanner in the works! Anyone else found it to be much more harsh on 18s?

    Post pics of your A3/S3

    Here's mine - still 99% standard, but I'm looking at doing a few small mods. Nothing more major than an ECU upgrade though, methinks.

    Man, 18s look a heap better. Mind is made up!

    Request for pics: S3 with 18" wheels on standard suspension?

    You guys rock - mind is pretty much made up to get 18s now. Did you guys notice any increase in the harshness of the ride quality? I know you guys have some pretty mint roads over there, but over here most of our roads are pretty dodgy (at least in Adelaide where I live). Cheers again!

    Request for pics: S3 with 18" wheels on standard suspension?

    Hi guys, first post! I live in Australia, had my S3 for just over a year now and starting to get the itch to spend a little on it. I'd like to get some wheels, I'm fairly sold on getting 17s again but would consider 18s, but I'm worried how it'll look on stock suspension, as I don't plan to do...
