    TTS - faults / issues / benifts

    Went from an S3 to the TTS. Only issues I ever had with the S3 were the infamous door rattle and a wheel bearing - both fixed under warranty. Apart from routine servicing, only issue I've had with the TTS in twelve months is that a window needed adjusting because of wind noise - again, sorted...

    MyAudi Destinations from App to MMI

    Having changed my email address recently, I had to go through the pain of re-registering all the MyAudi apps etc, but much to my amazement, having linked the car with the new registration I am now able to set destinations in the app and send them to the car. (I had also previously been unable...

    S4 to TTS

    Haha! Coming from the S3 section, the difference is "noticable" :rolleyes: (Other fora may also be available..... :wink: )

    refurbing alloys to OEM standard

    Another vote for Platinum Alloys here. They totally refurbed one of my S3 wheels a couple of years ago. Could never tell the difference.

    S3 Realistic MPG

    And to the OP, in the 1356 days I owned my S3 it averaged 29.85mpg, measured on a "brim-to-brim" basis. Nerd or what! :rolleyes:

    Brake pad life.

    Just chopped in my S3 after 51k miles and 3.5 years. At last service the dealer said the pads and discs would need changing at the next service at 54k miles. But, as said above it depends an awful lot on driving style and typical use. ie mile for mile, motorway work should be far easier on the...

    Hi from a former S3 owner

    Thanks DolomiTTe. I think I recognise your avatar from 'another place'???

    Thank you, Sandra :) Unfortunately it was a dull, grey, overcast day when I collected it and has now been raining ever since! As soon as the sun shines I will get some decent pics up.

    Hi from a former S3 owner

    Thanks Sandra. (Cross posted from the other thread:) "Thanks @Sandra for both your comment and the offer. The paint is Tiefgruen Pearl (Deep Green Pearl (Paint Code Z6E!!!)), which I can only describe as like a really deep British Racing Green."

    Hi from a former S3 owner

    Hi from a former S3 owner. Migrating across to here from the S3 group. The story of my change of ownership is on a thread here. I picked up the TTS yesterday after a four month wait, so will doubtless be in with lots of questions as a newbie TT owner. In the meantime, a quick pic of the car...

    So, collection day was yesterday and I'm now the proud owner of the TTS below. I'll migrate over to the TT section, but pop in occasionally

    yourAudi - Track New Car Order

    @COL3011 If it's any consolation, my new TTS took 14 days from the time it left Ingolstadt until it landed in the UK. It was only on the high seas for about one day. It then took a further six days to get to the Dealer and another 6 days for collection (Today, yipee!!! (which admittedly...

    yourAudi - Track New Car Order

    My new TT sat at Status 36 for many days before moving to 39. Neither Audi UK nor the dealer could or would give me an explanation of what it actually meant! Sorry, no help!

    It's been fun.....

    Well, after a sixteen week wait (and checking the order tracker every day over the last three weeks!) the TTS has been sailing the high seas today, and is now on UK soil in Grimsby :) Can't wait....

    S3 Fuel Grade

    Only ever used VPower in mine. There was one occasion in Scotland a couple of years ago when I had to fill it with 95, and both my driving partner and I commented about the loss of 'sparkle'.

    It's been fun.....

    @ACWKGYTO I had a driver door rattle start about a month after delivery. Demonstrated it to the Master Tech at Audi Tetbury, who stripped the door down and re-mounted the regulator. 'Twas fine for 15+ months but then came back. It subsequently went back twice in quick succession, but three...
