    Audi A3 2.0 TDi Sport
  1. I want to try and get LED Rear Number Plate bulbs working in my MY10, and want to make a loom so I can add a circuit between the existing connector for the rear number plate bulb holder and existing cabling without cutting any wires. So I guess I need to know the part number of the existing connector that the original rear number plate bulb holder fits into and the relevant mating half please? Also what wire is best to use here? Then I can add my circuit in between the existing connector and a new LED all in one rear number plate unit I plan to buy. This way no wires are cut and the original connector, number plate unit and replacement unit stay untouched and if it does not work I can go back to normal and return the LED replacements (at c£30) and all I have lost is the price of the connectors and circuit I am adding. TIA.
  2. New Audi TT Advice Please

    Thanks - well TT Forum says MY10 spec has been released and no change so lets see what price the Dealer come back with
  3. New Audi TT Advice Please

    I am looking to possibly buy a new Audi TT and am keen on the current PCP offer on the 2.0 TFSI. However I have a couple of questions: 1. Is the TT due a facelift any time soon or any spec changes imminent? 2. Will we see the 1.8T FSI Engine in the Coupe such as what is already in the Roadster? If so, when? Thanks in advance
  4. Audi A3 2.0tdi sport question

    That is a good price compared to the 2 quotes I had, but like you say its still £329!
  5. Audi A3 2.0tdi sport question

    Both my local dealers wanted about £550 for a new cambelt, but my local VAG Specialist did it for nearer £300 plus an upgraded water pump Not sure on the price, but let me know as mine is up for sell soon - it is a slight bit older, but less miles and in mint condition so I am not sure what to sell mine at?
  6. I want to test drive an Audi A3 3 Door 1.4 TFSI, but there are none local so I am wondering what the nearest equivalents are? I can try a 1.4 TSI Golf SE, or a 1.4 TFSI A3 Sportback (5 Door). Which would be the best in terms of the drive and engine performance? Having an A3 already I am more than happy with the trim levels etc. Any help appreciated, thanks.
  7. Thanks guys. I'm not sure would it? If it stay chrome, how much is just the black grill? If it is cheaper and easy enough to fit then yes I would certainly go for that. BTW your S3 looks stunning
  8. Audi Finance - Can Anyone Help?

    I am looking for a PCP quote on a new A3 so I spoke to one of my local Dealers today but he said he cannot give me a quote until the end of the week once the Finance deals are in. Call me sceptical but this doesn't sound right, surely he could have quoted anyway and if it changes it changes be it the APR goes up or down... Does this sounds right... TIA.
  9. Thanks Phil - are they expensive and is it easy?
  10. I'm looking to buy a new A3 and will probably go for Ibis White, but I'm not sure whether to get the Black Styling Pack or not? I like the grille and number plate section of the Black Pack but that's really it for a White car. I would rather have the Chrome Surround on White - is this possible as an easy mod if I got the Black Pack? Unfortunately none of my local dealers have a White A3 to look and I cannot make up my mind from Photos. The car would be on an Audi PCP so I'm not sure where you stand with mods? TIA.
  11. A3 1.4 TFSI Vs Golf 1.4 TSI

    Thanks and yes constantly changing gear is a slight concern but glad to gear its not too much of an issue.
  12. A3 1.4 TFSI Vs Golf 1.4 TSI

    Yeah I'd miss that but there is a big saving going for the 1.4 TFSI over the 2.0 TDI - I did think about the 2.0 TFSI but I'd like to keep cost down if poss and running costs also. Is the 1.4 TFSI twin or single exhaust out of interest?
  13. A3 1.4 TFSI Vs Golf 1.4 TSI

    Thanks - I'm just thinking of the Standard 1.4 TSI Golf (not the GT) that's 122BHP Vs. the 1.4 TFSI A3 at 125BHP? I have a 2.0 TDI (140 BHP) A3 and am looking at a new one and just wonder what the 1.4 TFSI is like? Unfortunately neither of my local dealers have a 1.4 to drive. There is about a £2K saving going for the 1.4 TFSI over the 2.0 TDI which is very tempting...
  14. Is the engine is the new 1.4 TSI Golf the same as the 1.4 TFSI in the new A3? There's obviously the 'F' missing from the Golf, but I wondered whether they may be the same both being VAG cars or if not how do they differ? Sorry if this is a stupid question but my knowledge of Engines is poor!
  15. Concert Vs Symphony on new A3

    Thanks and agreed
