Default Hello from a new A3 owner, and tips & tricks?


Just purchased an '09 A3, my first VAG product. Wanted to say hello to the group.

The 'galaxy of wisdom' sticky is awesome. Lots of really great info in there. As a new Audi/VAG owner, a real wealth of information. Thanks!

But does anyone have a link to a "things-you-didn't-know-your-A3-did" thread? I searched but didn't see anything. I'm talking about things like how you can open/close the windows & sunroof with the key in the driver's door. Or how you can see the time-to-service by pulling on the trip-reset **** on the dash. Stuff that may or may not be in the manual, but neat little 'easter-egg' type features. I've read the manual cover-to-cover, but I'm just wondering if there are any other neat little features that I ought to know about.
