    Does anyone know if the door cards/handles on a Saloon are the same size/fitting as a Sportback? I'm guessing there is a chance the fronts are the same but not the rears? Anyone know? Cheers.

    Facelift Two minor but rather annoying issues - anyone have a fix?

    1. The selection button (*) randomly stops working. I have this set to change driver select as I'm sure most people have, but sometimes it does nothing with no rhyme or reason.. I start the car and it either works or does not. It's resolved by going back into the option to re-select the function...

    Evening chaps, Maybe an easy question to answer, is the side skirts on a RS3 different/larger to those on the S3 and S-line cars? I know they are flared at the front to line up with the front wheel arch but what about the rest of it? Thanks.
