Superb attention to detail. I love seeing your work on the older mules! Keep it up
I always say its the little things that countNot used the S3 much recently so it’s ticking over on its heart monitor and the Accumate is doing its thing keeping the battery healthy in this cold Winter spell we’re currently experiencing.
I decided to take a punt and swap over the button cover for the MMI screen as my retrofit last year used the later button bar with the screen on/off logo and not the early up/down version.
A careful, gentle and then more forceful level under the button using one of my plastic pry/trim tools soon had the job sorted. Looking much more period correct for my MY2017 S3 with roll up/down MMI screen.
Do you need to have electric folding mirrors for this feature?
More future service stock as I managed to source a DSG/S-Tronic genuine filter that VAG list as a filter for life but I say if you can change it then you should. My box is the DQ381 (0GC) which I thought took filter no. 0GC325183A but the supplier is an Audi dealer who I sent my VIN/reg and they confirmed filter part no.0GC325183 fits plus they included the o-ring seal.
Where did you see it listed for life? DSG fluid and filter should be changed ever 40,000 miles according to my service documents (for the S3 that is).
S-Tronic transmission -
Change fluid and filter element for clutch hydraulics
Every 40,000 miles A3 Sedan and Cabriolet Non-B-cycle 2.0T, S3, TT, TTS, S5, S6, S7 4.0T, and R8 (4S) only
I have a 2016 facelift S3 and the “MyAudi” app says dual clutch S-tronic gearbox fluid every 80k miles. My car is coming up to 38k miles so if my app is incorrect, I was planning on changing the fluid at 80k. There’s no time limit specified that I can see either
On a sad note a stone hit the screen the other day while driving along in traffic. It's at the bottom r/h of the screen in the black boarder area.
On the face of it doesn’t look bad until you look more closely and see the spider legs on the layer below. It’s the size of a 5p so I’ll keep an eye on it and if needed buy a new screen, so annoying.
