      i get a weird grinding sort of noise when my traction control or abs kicked in while driving through the snow tonight, both when it was cold, and warm. anyone experience this? should i be worried? seemed to have come from almost dead center of the hood...

      and pic just b/c i love pic whoring my car



      thought the heat pattern on the hood was cool, same design as whats directly under the hood.

      Pretty sure that's the noise the abs control unit makes when it's working. At least mine always has and I've never had any problems. I wouldn't worry. Does the grinding coincide with the brake pedal feedback?

      Busy today:

      I saw this thread locked on Friday and I said I'm done. I am glad that we now have our own thread. One that was created by a guy who has contributed so much to this forum. There are so many members I never " see" here anymore. Alot of the apathy and frustration has to do with a lack of communication on the administration side. I will say some have tested the waters and started a storm of controversy.. Some have moved on to other cars and lets face it, Audi is not giving us anything to be really excited about either. I can honestly say that when krazyboi posted this thread, alot of the old excitement returned and we started to be a family again. Let's respect the mods but in turn WE EXPECT the same in return. Post your whorage brothers be it skin or metal!

      Literally said out loud, to myself, "Oh. My. God." I love/hate that the European guys can rock stuff that we just can't do over here. I don't get how, but it works. I could never in a million years rock those wheels, but the just look soooo mint on that example. I don't know how they do it.

      Well, we may not get a hatch, but the new MQB based A3 is going to be a hell of a nice car.

      Now, I don't want anyone's head to asplode, but I am actually strongly considering an A3 (8P, current gen) for my next car. I was going to hold on to my current GTI until the MQB A3 is out, but I had, though zero fault of my own, two accidents in the car this year, and I no longer trust it to last another couple of years without sucking cash out of my pocket, so I need something to tide me over.

      I am looking at CPO cars, as I'm not planning on holding on to it for more than 18 months to 2 years, and I'd rather let someone else take the depreciation hit. I'll probably be looking at 2010 cars, given pricing. Premium Plus, 2.0T quattro. I'd like a Ti pack car if I can find one, but they kind of look few and far between.

      So, some questions: Are there any material differences between 2010 and 2011 cars, other than the round "S-tronic" shift knob? Also, is that shift knob as easily retro-fittable as I would think it is? How about differences between 2010 and 2009 cars? The facelift was 2009, right?

      Any advice for me?

      Am I the only one who feels like Audi more or less nailed it when they designed the A3? I'm not saying that there are no flaws with it. But from a design perspective, I feel like there isn't an ugly line on it. It may not be 100% ergonomically correct, but then we're all different shapes and sizes. But if you take a step back and look at it, it's just beautiful. I mean what do you have to do to make one of these look real sick? You lower it a bit and maybe change out the wheels. Even most of the original wheels, in my opinion, are pretty rockin'. That says a lot, I think. It was definitely love at first sight for me, but at the time I had NO IDEA what kind of car I was looking at. Just knew I had to have one. I really dig how the body line (you know the one right by the door handles) is straight, but slopes down ever so slightly to the front and connects the taillights to the headlights. It gives it a look like it's flying past you when it's parked. The black roof on the OpenSkye models was a real nice tip-of-the-hat to the enthusiast crowd, too. Like, "Yeah, we know you're gonna paint it black anyways, so here, we did it for you." Also other subtleties, like making an OEM part that deletes the front license plate ugliness.

      Anyways, what I'm driving at is maybe they realize they nailed the A3 and they're just putting their feet up now for a while. They outdid themselves and they realize they can't beat that. Or it was just SO good that nothing new really intrigues us. Perhaps we've been desensitized.

      The facelift was mid-'09 production year iirc. I recommend to anyone to get a TDI. Even though I don't have one. They hold their value, which sucks up front but if you're trying to flip it fairly shortly, that might be something that could help you out. I haven't heard much trash talk about them. 2010-'11 is kind of beyond my realm of expertise. It's been hard to keep up with all the small year-to-year changes on the newer stuff. hth.

      It's pretty hard to go wrong with the TSI, and with Quattro it would be even better. If you can find a Ti package car then you would basically have my dream car. If the right car came along with the above three criteria, I'd be reaaalllly tempted to sell my car and buy it. Facelift was 2009, basically. The shift knob is easy in a sense, but can require a permanent modification to the car, or at least one that's not very easy to undo. It also can have a high risk of devastating failure. There are a few threads around here on installing the new style shift knob and what to do when you break the plastic rod. I guess we'd be seeing more of you around here if you get an A3, huh? If that's the case, you'll end up bringing back the OG thread yourself once we get you fully converted

      couldn't have said it better myself, completely agree with you. a few years ago, if someone were to ask me realistically speaking, if i could have any car for an everyday-er, hands down id say the A3, i love everything about it, every time i see my car i get a nice warm feeling inside and a smile on my face. these cars are beautiful and unique, and whats even better is you rarely see them, so when i do see another A3 on the road it excites me, as i get to see what my car looks like on the road

      Yea, it was more for the video then the car. What's funny is that its not even sponsored by DC Shoes so I don't know why you would do that to your car.
