Registered User
Hi Everyone, I've just ordered an RS3 and can't wait.

I will be getting the car fully protected with Xpel PPF and will also upgrade the steering wheel to the TT RS version soon as I get the car.

If there is any other cool little VCDS mod's that can be added please share. I have added ones I will be doing once I collect the car.

Enable/disable DRL via MMI
Acoustic lock beep (enable/disable via MMI)
Change the speed activation and deactivation of high beam assist
Service position front wipers on MMI (if possible)
Disable start&stop system
Show the oil level on the MMI (if possible)
Display Oil Temperatures on VCP
Passenger mirror dip when in reverse

Delivery would be hopefully taking place around April time (Dealer advised)

This already happens.
If you have power adjustable heated and folding mirrors yes. Non foldering mirrors no.

I found all the VCDS tweaks by searching on the 8V forums.

Nardo :hearteyes:

TX.
was either Sepang blue or Nardo but I already had a Sepang blue A5 so I thought I would go for Nardo, plus I couldn't justify paying for it which I think it's now an "Audi exclusive" costing £2K+

Only thing I've done is installed a front/rear dash cam. Considering a remap at some point but that's about it really. I came from a C63S AMG and thought I'd miss the power but the RS3 doesn't disappoint. Plenty fast enough for a daily driver imo...

I was looking at getting a dash cam fitted but wasn't too sure on which one to get as there are so many on the market. I was looking at getting either a Blackvue DR900 (4K) one when they release it or just get the current Blackvue DR750s-2CH. which one do you have or recommend getting? Thanks

Not sure id bother with the engine cover. it comes with one anyway, just not got carbon accents....£700 is a lot for, i presume, fake carbon!

Thinkware are the best imo. As far as I am aware blackvue dashcams still affect DAB despite aftermarkets fixes with eg ferrite cores. Should be a basic fix but it seems Blackvue cant be bothered to fix it.

Thinkware F800 dual camera is excellent as is the Thinkware battery (for parking mode)

I did find it expensive for an engine cover but I thought to myself that I knew I would get it later on down the line so hence why I added it to my build.

Thanks for the recommendation I will look into that model.

I have the Thinkware F770 front/rear cam hard-wired. There is a newer F800 model available and would probably go for that one if I was buying now. Some people prefer Blackvue but I think they're both very good cameras.

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd update my build/status process on here

I've just got an email from the dealer and he has said that my car is due for a build week 10. I have also checked the status of my order on the Audi website and the status has changed from Welcome to Order received. my car is expected to begin construction on 19th March 2018.

Thanks

According to Audi customer services they weren’t giving out anymore build dates till Feb this year so even if you ordered after me no build dates till this month. Just hope my date comes forward abit but I need to order exhaust, intercooler and a few other bits for stage 2/3 so plenty of time to find the right bits.

Dealer has emailed me saying "The closest indication I can give is car arriving 4 weeks after build, so we would expect end of March/early April. But this may change"

I was looking at ordering the Carbon mirror covers for the RS3 when it comes. Is it worth putting them on or just leaving them gloss black?

I would just buy them for the dealer and save a few quid....you even find dealers on eBay selling OEM ones at great prices. Means you have the factory supplied black caps and then can choose to put on the CF ones when you wish.

Yes makes sense. I think I would buy it from my local dealer direct as I’ve just checked and they have them in stock. Thanks.
