  1. oh, I see, I assume you need some sort of adaptor that plugs into a USB slot, rather than it slotting straight in? Ta. (numpty, told you!)
  2. Numpty question, how do you get tracks onto an SD card? I've only ever used them for cameras. (I already have all my music as mp3's, I just don't know how to put them on SD...). Thanks.
  3. 8P - S3 Real World Running costs

    Thanks Jamie, very useful, appreciate that. I take your point re the 4WD, but I am actually a fan of the Haldex, from past Audi ownership, so the addition of Haldex to what is essentially a "better" version of the Golf GTi engine (which I loved) is a very attractive proposition. Especially if i added a Haldex Performance Controller to shift it even more to the rear! Those stock figures are pretty impressive. I've been a modder in the past, but I don't know that this will need a lot, as you say (coupled with the fact I hate the insurance hassles etc). No, not driven one yet. It's actually the Sportback that I am interested in, due to the need for 5 door and some practicality. I know the performance / handling won't be much different to the 3dr anyway, but I'd like to see the whole 5-dr package in the flesh 1st really (boot space, rear leg room etc). Though actually, I guess I could just look at any old Quattro Sportback for space, and just drive a 3dr S3. mmm, tempting. Then just bang my order in (once securing a big discount...) Oh, and it would have to be Sprint Blue, no question!
  4. 8P - S3 Real World Running costs

    Jamie, Quick Q. Have you driven a Golf GTi or Ed30, and if so how does it compare to the S3? Am I right in thinking it must be the same basic engine, with maybe a diff turbo, diff mapping etc? Loved my old mk5 GTi, and looking to get a new S3 soon. Cheers.
  5. Facelift A3 Sportback & new 2.0 TDI Engine

    Sorry, probably stupid question, but is the S3 engine a tuned version of the Golf GTi engine, diff turbo maybe? I'm guessing it must be based around the same engine, being a 2.0 TFSI? Potentially looking at the S3 Sportback, and having had a mk5 GTi previously (which I liked) I want to know how the S3 compares (yes, go for a test drive, I know...)
  6. Anyone after an unregistered mkV R32?

    [ QUOTE ] with the ability to bargain in that if they do indeed have 7 they will want rid of them. [/ QUOTE ] might give them a ring tomorrow, see if that is true!
  7. ...as Leicester VW seem to have 7 of them: http://dealerservices.autotrader.co.uk/47711/stock.htm
  8. What's wrong with this?

    Too cheap?? http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/295832.htm Thought it must have been an insurance write-off or something, but not stated.

  13. Press preparation??

    Is there any way to find out more about the specific car? (not that I don't trust the dealer to tell the whole truth! "yes, sir, it was used as a fleet car for the 89-yr old chairman, he never went above 30mph in it, etc etc..." Thanks.
  14. Press preparation??

    yes, 56reg 335i
  15. Press preparation??

    OK, it seems pretty obvious I guess, but a dealer advertising a car with "press preparation" on the spec list, has this been a press demo presumably (and therefore no doubt thrashed?). It's just that 5k miles for a 56 reg press car would seem low. Thanks.
