    Xenon Headlight Bulbs

    Hi guys, My front-right xenon dipped beam/high beam bulb died so I'm looking for a replacement. Does anyone know what is the original OEM bulb (part number and manufacturer, I believe it's Phillips?)? Also, do bulbs and part numbers vary across different markets (specifically Australia)? Also...

    Coolant loss

    Hi guys, I suspect I've got a coolant leak again, I noticed the level go from usual mid to just below the min. I've had thermostat replaced (twice) under warranty before (2018 & 2019, second time apparently the seal wasn't installed properly) Does anyone know the OEM part numbers for revised...

    Replica VS OEM rims

    Thanks guys, I appreciate :) I'm just a little wary to all the dodgy things dealerships do, I've been in the industry before (not Audi though) and seen so many unethical things...

    Replica VS OEM rims

    Hi Guys, Recently I had new tyres fitted at the Audi dealership and during the process they damaged one of my rims with tyre mounting. As these are diamond cut (5-arm rotor design) I refused any kind of repair; they agreed to replace the rim with the new one. As the OEM are far more expensive...

    S3 Steering

    Tire pressure is fine (I try to keep it on the lower end to cushion the potholes...it's non-mag ride so the ride is very hard as is). I think I might book it in for the alignment just to be sure...otherwise I might have to get use to EPS being vague. PS previously coming from BMWs and them...

    S3 Steering

    Yeah I tried it in dynamic and it seems a little heavier on-centre but still feels lighter than it should :-/

    S3 Steering

    Hi Guys, Recently I've noticed my steering feels very light on-center, as in, making very small corrections to stay straight in the lane, the steering feels like there is no resistance trying to turn it from one direction to other then it progressively gets heavier (as it should) as the turn is...

    S3 Steering Issue

    Thanks for your reply f1nny, that's impressive thinking outside the box. I've tried your method today and I think it seems to have improved slightly (I hope it's not just a placebo effect lol), it seems to have better road feedback as well...or it could be just in my mind. Since I have long legs...

    S3 Steering Issue

    Hi guys, I'm hoping to get some opinions on this issue... Would it be possible for the steering wheel to not point straight without any external impact? I've never touched the kerb, never hit any harsh potholes (that I can remember), always go very slowly over speed bumps and yet I'm pretty...

    S3 wheels and tyres for track-days

    Based on my track days I would suggest to stay with 18's rather than going to 19's. The 18's have a bit more side-wall and will be less twitchy and more forgiving. Personally I think 19's are only for looks and not really for improved handling (pimpin' look in my opinion), the side-wall is just...

    S3 time to first service

    I would suggest changing the oil now to flush out any debris that may be present following the running in period; than afterwards do yearly service regardless of miles (obviously before the computer shows 0 miles remaining till next service due). As soon as I clock up 1,500km I'll be doing an...

    Stop-start system

    Yea and that was YOUR and only comment on what I was looking for; I'm not going to rely on just one person's opinion; there's a lot of crap out there and everyone thinks they're an expert. Don't bother posting if you're going to be a d*ck about it; it's not hard to just say "It's got an...

    Stop-start system

    I have searched the forum and Google and had a look at all those threads before I posted, however didn't really find a definitive answer. Does it damage the turbo in the long run or not? Liquidfusion, don't give me attitude!

    Stop-start system

    Hi, Does oil and coolant still flow to through the turbo when the engine shuts off with the automatic stop-start system? I'm a bit reluctant to use the stop-start as I'm not sure if the turbo is being harmed with the instant shut off of the fluids; does Audi have alternate pump that...

    Strange Splash On Paintwork & Windscreen

    Try to use clay bar and lube (Mother's Clay Bar kit is pretty good) on that area. It's amazing what clay can remove. Good luck

    What Audi Wheels Are These On This S3?

    Rotors FTW!! I think they're one of the nicest wheels Audi does IMO; instantly recognisable as an Audi. Pretty much the first thing I said to my dealer was "S3 sedan with Rotors please" :yum:

    BW 29, 30, 31, 32

    Oh ok, cheers. Looks like I'll have to chase him up for the details. Mine is suppose to be built this week and so far he's just told me that everything is on track for planned delivery date but doesn't know the VIN; the shipping details are vague at this point.

    How long did you have to wait after the build week for your dealer to inform you of your VIN and shipping details? Cheers

    No sedan pricing for me for another 4 months

    Just a suggestion.. Alternatively, you could sell the Mini now as planned, quickly buy some $1000 piece of cr*p car to use for the next 8 or so months (keeping in mind it's already depreciated at it's maximum so you probably wont lose any more money, and if you polish it up a bit you might even...
