    Disappointing Michelin PS4 tread wear....

    As title, 4 tyres have been on the car for only 15400 miles over 23 months and are now only 3 to 3.5mm of tread left! WTF? At that rate of wear, they will be removed (2mm left) by the time they hit 18000 miles. Considering that does not include any spirited country lane or track driving and I am...

    Hi All. I've had my S3 from new 5 years ago and this morning the RNSE asked me for a pin entry code. It has never done that before.

    Anyone had Audi price match for new tyres?

    As topic really. Just wondering what 'proof' they asked for in order to match the price. I have my winter tyres stored at Audi so use them for my yearly swap around when required. It's about time I binned my 2.5mm Assym' 2's and got me the 3's :)

    S3 Headrests! Ffs!

    Is there anyway to adjust an S3 headrest backwards? My stupid shaped head keeps tapping the rest and it really pi55es me off. I want the seat where it is, I want the angle of it where it is but I just cannot seem to get away from the ****** head rest. There must be a way to adjust the forward or...

    2011 S3 hazard light flash

    So, I walk up to my car, press key fob once, get in and as I sit down I notice the hazard lights flash only twice I think it was. By the time I notice it they have stopped. I don't see it often, but what the hell does it mean?

    Discussion time! Moving from Shark stage 1 to Revo stage 1 (with linear throttle map)

    Anyone here got the Revo linear throttle map? Whats it feel like under normal road driving? Seeing as Revo have a nice 35% discount if you swap to them I am a little tempted. Don't get me wrong, I have not found anything wrong with my Shark map that makes me want to swap, lets get that straight...
