    Replacement front wings

    I’ve used them. My front wings were rotten on the inside and seemed like a decent option. They fit well, no problems there and the price is great but the colour match to a silver 56 plate isn’t preferable. Its not bad but i can’t not see it which bugs the hell out of me. It might be better with...

    What have you done to your A3 (8p) this week

    Had a full TBE BCS powervalve sport system with a 100 cell cat supplied by @BCS Nige and fitted it yesterday. If anyone is debating whether they're worth the extra coin then my answer is yes!! Fitted like a glove, sounds sooo much better than my old non-res milltek!! Cannot recommend highly...

    Strange knocking over bumps

    It’s more than likely one of 2 things- 1. Subframe bolts that have stretched over time and causing slight movement of the subframe assembly or 2. Steering rack, they’re renowned for failing due to the bearings within the rack itself. This can be checked by raising the front axle and applying...

    Thanks a lot for giving your opinion on this, i was searching for similar issues on google and the phrase ‘parts car’ was coming up all too often and started panicking a bit!!

    I’m hoping this isnt serious!!

    Hey people, hope everyone’s safe and well. I’ll get straight to the point... i ordered some replacement wings for the S3 due to some rust at the base of them and once i removed them i found the sills at the front we’re in really poor condition due to the rust. Unfortunately this came to light...

    My engine cover is pretty decent, it's just the air intake that attaches to the body and the part that connects that to the engine cover i'm after. I understand it will leave someone with an incomplete engine cover but I thought i'd ask anyway.

    New S3 Owner saying Hello!

    Thanks for all the replies chaps, some really useful info there. It puts my mind to rest about the cam chain tensioner a little but i think i’ll replace it anyway, when i’ve got the time to change it in the next couple of months. The Millers oil certainly does get its rave reviews so making...
