  1. Had it less than a week, giving it a wash and noticed that part of the lowere bumper wasn't painted. Chased this up with local stealers (Newcastle Audi) who claimed it was probably a bump and respray at the supplying dealers. Spoke to Stanstead Audi (company car, hence sourced through them) who professed to know nothing about it. Back to Newcastle Audi who searched the records and found no work done on the car pre-delivery (and no proper PDI it would seem ). Took photos to contact Audi UK for Warranty work, said they'd be in touch within 2 days. 10 days later still nothing so went back, took paint code, promised to be in touch today or tomorrow so fingers crossed. Anyone else seen anything like this ??? Stealers have confirmed that it is a factory defect Disco
  2. Half Bumper, Full Calipers

    Who would be weed though ???
  3. Disabling TV Off

    Yes, but you need a TV in motion lead. Cost about £100 upwards depending on whether you get other inputs for sound and video to hook up a reversing camera or Playstation, DVD, etc. Disco
  4. Conneting phones to BT

    Re:- Sony Ericsson phone, it was very buggy and temperamental with my P910. Works 100% with my Nokia and my Wife's Nokia. Disco
  5. Heating up the Car

    Yes. If you have the Diesel it has a separate fuel-burning heater that can be set from the main screen. There are 2 timers for different pariods of the day, so you could set it for morning and evening. If the car isn't used after 30 mins of the heater activating then it switches off, i.e. you have a lie-in. Called Auxilliary Heating and there is an LED fan shape next to the right knob of the control screen which illumimates when the car is turnined off to tell you that this is working. The bad point is that after playing around with it last winter it doesn't seem to make that much of a difference but I'm not sure if it is just a bit pants or if ours isn't working properly. If you need further exlanation or pics of the screen then PM me. Disco
  6. 3 were the black gangster-mobiles, others were silver and manky green as stated above. All on standard plates I believe and NE registered. Maybe just one of them days where you just notice certain things (like other road users, lol). Disco
  7. Been working around W.Bay - Blyth and a bit inland this week and bizarrely saw 7 of those Chrysler 300C things today. All at different times in different areas alothough I think I saw the same one twice. Are they BOGOF at the moment ??? One was a manky green too. Been keeping my eyes peeled for anything more interesting or the infamous P_G or anyone else but unless they have taken to hanging out at Starbucks at the Silverlink I might have to actually do some work to improve my chances of a half decent sight. That said, saw a DB9 at the bottom of the Westgate road at about 8.40am today and a yellow Gallardo at the Stanningotn roundabout as you come off the A1 to join the A19 a few weeks back. Disco
  8. Easiest way to remove wheel bolt covers ???

    Lol, saw your sig a while back just too lazy to PM you. Small world this t'internet lark. I've been rather prolific on X5world in the past but figured that this was a much better choice. As for the cap covers problem, all sorted. The springy thing turned out to be the hook for pulling off the standard wheel covers. After a quick RTFM I realised that the tongs for removing the covers were missing. I needed to go to the Stealers anyway to chase up what was happening with my front bumper and why they hadn't painted some of it !!! Another story, will post pics and a thread this weekend sometime. Spoke to the service manager who took a set from the A3 in the showroom, he was quite impressed that I had managed it with the springy thing actually, lol. Disco
  9. Newbie question I'm sure, I have tried removing the plastic covers with the springy metal thing in the boot as it seems to serve no other purpose. It works but seems a bit fiddly. What is the supposed "correct" way of removing these cap covers ??? Thansk, Disco
  10. TSN Northeast Meet - 19th November 2006

    Hi Guys, might be able to borrow a driftbox off my friend for this see http://www.driftbox.com/ Not recommending that it gets used to measure drift angle, unless we go on private roads, ahem. But you can confirm performance times, etc, etc. Will speak to my mate about borrowing it on that day and who ever shouts first can use it. As an extra I'll take it away and all the info on it and print off or email you all the data logs for bragging rights, alternatively it provides a lovely map or exactly where you have been (and how quick you were going, oo-er). If anyone wants to buy one then I'll have a word with my mate for a TSN discount. Disco
  11. Time to personalise my S4

    Been wondering about doing this myself, got the red caliper paint and some Audi 4 rings decals. Just umming and ahhing as I don't want it to look too "chav." The general consensus on here seems ok, so i will have a bash this weekend if the weather holds and provide some pics. Disco

  13. TSN Northeast Meet - 19th November 2006

    Hmmmm, defo interested for this one just worried I won't be able to keep up !!! Disco
  14. Easiest way to remove wheel bolt covers ???

    Lol, now I think about it yeah. I was using the legs as a hook to ping the caps off, DOH ! Disco
  15. Easiest way to remove wheel bolt covers ???

    Maybe I'm using the springy thing wrong then ???
  16. Elise as a daily driver??

    I can vouch that the Clio 182 is a quick car as I got my a$$ handed to me on a plate by one today. Got a 2.0TDI A3 S-Line, the Snooper GPS-calibrated speed was over Audi's stated max speed and he was still slowly pulling away from me.
  17. TSN Northeast Meet - 15th October 2006

    Here's one for when you all get back in !!! Noticed at Costco the other day that you can get a pack of 40 microfibre cloths for about 12 quid

    [ QUOTE ] Disco - you'd be more than welcome at the next meet. The more the merrier. [/ QUOTE ] I'll watch this space !!! And in the meantime try and spend more time here and work out how crazy you lot actually are Disco
  19. Yellow Maserati (with pic) and AUD1 R

    I saw that AUD1 plate about 7 years ago in Manchester, it was about 5am and I was on my way to catch a flight, had to do a double take as I thought I was seeing things.
  20. Personalised Registration ???

    It has to be an 07 car, i.e. the existing registration must be something like NE07 TYN. If your registration read NE56 TYN then you couldn't put an 07 plate onto it. Disco
  21. TSN Northeast Meet - 15th October 2006

    Aaarrghgh, I come here as a newbie and read about this meet. Would be well up for it but am away to Manchester for my mum's 50th party. Would have been great to catch up and would've given me another excuse to wash the car, A3 S-Line 2.0Tdi 2 weeks old. Will be there at the next one to say hello to some (seemingly) friendly people. Disco
  22. I'm a sucker for having a go !!! Better order some stereo keys too then. Thanks, Disco
  23. Great, thanks !!! Will order that kit later today, do i need to pick up some stereo removal keys too or are they included in the pack? Disco
  24. Same as you, got an S-Line with the standard Concert II. Thanks, Disco
  25. This is exactly what I am looking for !!! So, to connect my NW-HD1 to my HU, and to get full functionality from the HU do I just need the caraudioplus lead or the connects2 thingummy as well ??? Not exactly sure what the connects2 box of tricks is or how you order it if you need it. Would love to have the MP3 player left in the glovebox and full control from the HU. Thanks in advance, Disco
