    North East Revival!

    Hey all, It's been a good while since I've been around. A lot has been going on in my life which has meant I haven't been able to be around as much, but I'm back now! One thing that has surprised me is that I'm still the North East rep.. so I doubt much has been going on in the NE whilst I've...

    How do you like your Tea?

    In light of the Tea-break threads, I thought it would be fitting to discuss the methods and techniques which are used in order to produce the perfect cuppa. If you're feeling kind and offer to make the tea for your guests, how do you do it? My girlfriends parents follow the old school '2...

    Gorgeous R8 Replica...

    In light of the RS3 Replica thread, I thought this might be quite fitting. Spotted this at a track day at Elvington in York a few weeks back. Love the ingenuity that's gone into the side air-intake! But I think we'll all agree, we've definitely seen worse.

    DSG Gearbox replaced at 60k miles...

    Hi all, Went to view an A3 for the Mrs today and all seemed well apart from the fact that the DSG Gearbox had been replaced at 60k miles. The salesman seemed to think of it as a plus point, the fact that it wouldn't need one anytime soon, but I can't help but think of it as a negative... the...

    Double Mattress - Will It Fit in an A3 8P?

    Utterly random question, haha, but something that someone may have first hand experience of.. Will a 4'6" double mattress squeeze into the back of an A3 8P? I could go and measure but as the mattress can be squashed down, even if it it seems too large, it could may well fit. TIA :)

    2.0TFSI Pre-Cat Removal

    Got a heads up of a good friend of mine over at Briskoda about the pre-cat removal that a fair few people have been doing to their TFSI. Removing the pre-cat will not affect your MOT, the pre-cat was fitted to aid in the cold-start emissions, which isn't tested in a UK MOT. Reported gains are...

    Engine Code - Different on V5 and VCDS?

    Bit of a weird one this... My engine code is BWA (as per V5 and various HPI checks) but my VCDS Engine-01 label shows: 06F-907-115-AXX, which would suggest Engine Code AXX. So which engine do I have?...

    Hi all, Tried the usual search but couldn't find anything. I've had my car for a few days now and its perfect, hasn't skipped a beat apart from one small problem which has been happening in the morning. I jump in the car and turn her over and she fails to start first time. She'll start first...

    DSG Folk: Do You Use Your Handbrake?

    This is one thing that I've always found interesting and would like to know what the majority of you DSG chaps do when it comes to the handbrake. Over my time of doing retrofits I've came across many DSG Audi's that their owners will use their handbrake as well as the 'Park' on the DSG box, but...

    jb0o's 2.0TFSI & 3rd A3

    This has been well overdue but I've finally put down a deposit on my 3rd A3; a 2007 2.0TFSI DSG S Line Special Edition. I started off with my first A3 3 years ago with a 2004 1.9TDI Sport - such a fantastic car and engine. When I moved in with the Mr's I had to let go of my beloved A3 and I...

    Scotland Retrofit Install & Meet - December 2011

    Hi all, I've noticed that a few people have been interested in a Cruise Control group install in Scotland. I did a group install and meet earlier in the year which was very successful and I met a really good bunch of people so I'd be more than happy to do another one. Also since I also...
