Washed both cars..and got numb fingers.. worth it though.
Detailing world?I've seen this type of thread on another forum I'm part of and it always seems fairly popular,
Not today but the last thing I did to it was a boost gauge.
Did the guy that fitted you that have any trouble taking out the vent?
Im trying to get access to the screen in the middle but im not able to pop out the vents with the tool as I don't know where to stick it and pull.
The Start/Stop system on my wife's A1 manual works fine, but with the s-tronic on mine it does not work as well, which is why I switched it off.I thought the stop/start was something that would really bother me, but that's turned out not to be the case. I have a habit of sitting with the clutch depressed and my foot on the brake anyway, rather than dropping it into neutral and/or applying the handbrake, so my stop/start rarely kicks in.
Yes but it means remembering to turn it off every time I turn on the ignition, so I decided switching it off permanently was my preferred option. If I change my mind at a later date I can always switch it back on again. Like a lot of things to do with cars - personal preference.Do you not have the button on the dash to turn it off?
Why does everyone seem to be against start stop? It saves fuel and starts back up so quickly it's never been an issue for me
It's true though, by turning it off your car is throwing out higher emissions. Thus the tax bracket should be higher. It makes absolutely no odds to me though I just like the feature as it saves me money . I can see why people turn it off likewise. Took me a while to get used to it and I often wonder if people think I stall at every set of lightsI don't mind it either. Seems to work fine and if I don't want the engine to stop I just turn it off temporarily on the dash. Once you get the hang of it you can just press the brake enough to stop but not trigger the start/stop.
I'm just waiting for the government to make it illegal to turn it off. They could argue that the start/stop contributes to the lowering of emissions and thereby puts you into a particular tax bracket. Just joking, but I wouldn't be surprised, stranger things have happened!!!
h5djr - in my post I wasn't suggesting that I like start stop because it is environmentally friendly. In fact, as you say, the effect must be minimal (anyone have any figures?). But I imagine that eco considerations are the only reason to include it - why else would they?
I have no strong opinions about it - it's there and it doesn't bother me really. Isn't it a good job we are not all the same!
Looking really nice! Got me thinking now...lol promised the wife i was not going to mod my S3....see how long that lasts tho..Just had my springs fitted earlier, so enjoy the customary photo:

Still needs to settle in and I'm fitting the RS3 grill in a few hours so I'll pan that up in due course as well as a few fitting notes.
P.S. I am fully aware my car is filthy and it will be cleaned when I know it's not gonna snow .
