I have been offered £6,800 trade in. A friend in the trade says the trade in value...
Normally i ring round, go to the cheapest place (or get them to price match) and get them fitted. Looking on the web there are some places that sell tyres at a good discount. Per tyre.......

1. Delivery service 2007 august.
2. Long life service 2009 august------ oil, Filter and pollen filter
3. August 2011 As above and brake fluid plus i had the cam belt changed.
I am going onto annual service. Anything else need doing this time except for oil and filter.
Old car at top, new car at bottom.
Cost to buy a new set of genuine Audi alloys as per top picture is £1600 although i have knocked them down to £1280. Still blo0dy expensive, but it would finish of what is otherwise a near perfect car.
My car sat nav is rated at 1A. I have a usb adaptor to put in my car fag lighter which is rated at 2A. Is that 2A the output of the USB, or is the 2A the maximum that can be drawn through the USB by the Sat Nav.
I am thinking of getting a newer A3 2.0 tdi and have seen an auto for sale, steptronic. In general is the automatic gearbox on the A3 seen as a good one (like Mercedes) or something to be avoided. I've never had an auto before, thought it might be fun.
Checking the figures, combined for a...
My 2005 A3 headlight lenses have stonechips and are looking a bit scruffy. What are my options with them being plastic.
1. Is there any sort of "polish" or "repair" available.
2. New lens, is it the whole unit, or can you replace the cover. How much do they cost.
Both sides needed.
Yesterday, i had to floor the throttle to overtake a lorry, and noticed smoke in the rear mirrior. Not loads, but enough to notice it.
It uses a little oil over a 12 month period.

I just bought a set of A3 alloys for my car. Looking at the part number, some are
8PO 601 025 AF, some are 8PO 601 025 T, and one is 8PO 601 025 BF
What does the last letter mean. I know the AF one came direct from Audi.
All are 7.5 x 17 and ET56 Ronal.
I have a few rattles in the cabin of my A3, notably the centre section of the handbrake. Has anyone else experienced this, and do you have any solutions.
My previous car was a 3 series BMW which had nothing at all, so maybe my standards are a bit high. Having said that, i do find the...
........ie some filter blocking up and costing a fortune. My friend told me to run the car at 4k revs for 10 minutes every so often to stop it blocking up.
Anyone add anything to this. Its the first i've heard.

Okay, so its a bit of a plug, but its also a genuine question. As per sig i'm after a set of these alloys. I check Ebay daily, and do the odd search on Gumtree. Most sets are kerbed and go for around £250, but ideally i'd like a set near perfect and would pay up to £400 (as long as they didn't...
In my last few MOT's i have had brake caliper sticking issues. I asked my local mechanic about this. His reply.
"Every now and then, find a bit of quiet road, speed up to 60 mph (ish) and slam the brakes on. Do this a few times"
He reckons that people using their gears to slow down, and a...
The reason i ask (apart from the blatent plugging of my signature search for some new alloys) i am thinking of getting a USB socket fited inside my glovebox, and exploring ways to hardwire my Garmin sat nav.
Looking for inspiration guys (and gals).
Today i had the new ipod nano 6th generation fitted. Yes the new touchscreen, really small one.
Connection kit by ICD. Cost £180 fitted by Audioisland Grimsby.
How it works.
1. It charges the Nano
2. It doesn't freeze the nano so you can take it out the glovebox and choose an album.
