Cheers Guys for your reply & opinion ... I think im going to leave the car in its priginal condition for 2-3 months and then start doing some mods [:p] ... first on my wishlist is installing rns-e ... took her today to snake pass for a drive (between sheffield & manchester) and that car is fun to drive on both high & low speeds when doing corners and also on 2-3 mile straight stretch ... this is my first proper audi experience & im loving it [:p] ..my gf is so jealous now that she wants to exchange her bmw 1 series with my a3 lol (not happening).

The Owners Manual says 1000 miles ... mine already had 1200 miles on it as it was finance directors car and she got an upgrade to A5 and this one was 4k cheaper than the new one for same spec [:p] .. I can use that money to get rns-e & s3 brake dics [:p]

Damn sorry to hear that. Was it a door that opened onto it or is the scratch too high? Really annoying.

sorry to hear that Sal - know the feeling when some t--t opened their car door into the side of my last Audi

you know, some folks call us 'sad' and say "its only a peice of metal" but when you work/graft BLOODY HARD! to own decent motors i find it sad that some sickos (choosing my wording very carefully) take pleasure in de-facing peoples properties - may they contract a long,painful venerial disease!!

good luck with the repair mate

is it jake that works for panelcare? think his user neame is jakewalsh hes had some good reviews on correctional stuff from what ive read, only ever bad one i read was on a silver car which didnt look off think it was someone being a cnut! is the scratch white(has i it gone through the paint?) if not coule be worth try scratchX or similar on such a small scratch could save having paint, or buffing the area could work out cheaper and just as effective. hope you get it sorted mate, just jealousy all it is you cant have ote nice with the little chavvy #$£%^# about!
