  1. I'm afraid not , you would need to swap the gearbox for the DSG (if available, I dont think there is a DSG option) version and retro all the associated electronics.

    Its an old mobile phone base , probably not at all useful , certainly wont work with a modern iphone/Android device.

    Bose amplifier by-pass

    You need an adapter , depending on what OEM head unit you have but will be similar to this https://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/connects2-ct53-au03-audi-a2-a3-a4-tt-active-system-interface-amplified-adaptor-lead.html

    Touching up the rust bucket

    Replace the wings - I have exactly the same issue , as has been said its a common thing. Both doors are shot as well - only option is to replace them. As an indicator to replace both front wings and colour match approx £500, Buy the doors only after viewing them but allow around £80 for a (good) door.
  5. For me its just a tool , Audi is nothing special its just a car like any other.

    What engine code and manual or DSG style gearbox ??, The transfer cases are different between gearbox type's and year model (apparently).

    Advice needed bought a used car with issues

    Oil loss, coolant loss - that sounds like a head gasket to me. Do a quick check (if safe to do so) with the engine idling but not hot take the cap off the coolant bottle 1. check for bubbles 2. have a sniff. Also with engine switched off remove oil filler cap and check for white sludge on the cap and around the neck.

    A3 led headlights

    HID's are not legal in the UK (as a retrofit) unless you have self levelling headlights and headlight washers, and yes I know a few places that will turn a blind eye at testing time but I have also seen far too many installations that are not only wrong but also !Removed! dangerous and a hazard to other motorists. I have 2 sets of HID's and 1 of LED's but have taken them all out and gone back to halogen bulbs , I just drive a bit slower now.

    New head unit install

    So the bit I'm confused about is in the picture it shows phono style speaker connectors where as most cars use an iso adapter , unless there are speaker connections in what the call the power plug. Who makes the unit ?

    So do you have a Bose system ?

    A3 led headlights

    The H7 is the correct fitment however the mass of the heatsink/driver unit wont allow the dust covers back on and I believe as they are a fitting that doesn't have a clip to secure it they will fall out due to vibration and weight. But the big issue is CANBUS , unless they are CANBUS compatible they may fail to light up and throw bulb out warnings, it maybe able to get CANBUS interfaces but you would need to check legality and comptibility.

    Your'e looking at gearbox out time I'm afraid. It could be many thinkgs but the next most obvious is going to be clutch pressure plate/thrust bearing, after that its going to be bent or broken selector forks in the gearbox .

    Crankshaft Position Sensor

    I would say not but jump onto some where like eurocarparts put your reg details in and see what it comes up with. There looks to be quite a range of fitting styles between models and engine types

    I average around 1200 miles per month and use Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 , as the 3.2 Quattro is a heavy beast I wasn't expecting too much from them but i've been very pleasantly surprised. They are on the sporty side of a tyre choice but do very well in the wet, not too much road noise, braking performance is good and they are excellent in the dry.
