    S3 knocking noise?

    Thats a very good point Paul! After fitting they will settle down over a few weeks, and as Paul say's this could also be a cause you need to look at? Any other symptoms or information mate? Gaz m

    S3 knocking noise?

    Ahh! You have my problem, never home to fix or drive the ****** cars! Where abouts in the country are you? I havent changed one but a few have on the site so a search will help you for information as to the symptoms they had and the solution used to fix it. I would suggest there would be a lot...

    S3 knocking noise?

    gynads So you have a knocking noise when you change gear, Yet you think its the steering rack??? Try checking your engine mountings first mate as that is more like your problem, the engine or gearbox are rocking back on the mounts when you dip the clutch to change gear causing the clunk and...

    S3 shocks and springs - what are they worth?

    Ahh right, No need to keep them then! I would suggest they will work with any model that has a similar weight engine so 2l tfsi and 3.2 any small engined A3 will be no good as the front set will be far too stiff so the car will bounce over bumps. I would suggest the S3 set up is a...

    S3 shocks and springs - what are they worth?

    Paolo, I second what Paul has just said to you, A mistake I made when I sold my S3 was I had no time to take some of the mod's off as I was abroard when I sold the car which resulted as a loss to the value of selling the mods individualy for a good price as well as selling the car standard...

    H&R springs on an S3

    Jungleman, If you know what part number or spring rate you have in KG then the guys using similar set ups should be able to help you a bit further as they will have info on the shocks that are proving to be a good match to the springs. It might be helpful for you to google " corner weighting "...

    H&R springs on an S3

    Not quite mate, That test will prove that the shock is working correctly ie it still has gas or air in its system so is doing its intended job. This still may be a miss match to the spring which is allowing the spring to return to its full extent without any control which will cause the bounce...

    H&R springs on an S3

    Yep I know there good springs and have great write ups on a lot of forums. Just this could be a case of old or worn shock's not working right or possibly a missmatch of the model part numbers maybe? Maybe worth posing the question of part numbers to the numerous guys on here that have a good...

    H&R springs on an S3

    I dont mean to but in guys as I have not driven with the H&R springs, but just for general set up of suspension components The spring supports the weight of the car and engine and is matched to keep the car level front to back and side to side. It also has a given compression rate which is...

    RS3

    Dave, If the Caymen has satnav 'Mobridge" do a system similar to the Alpine 426 system that can be used on the Audi satnav to add the Ipod to the satnav screen. So theres one of the problems solved. Put some race exhaust's on it and you will hardly listen to the Ipod anyway as the noise the...

    What would be a good "downgrade"?

    Sorry Matt I was suggesting cars in a similar range to the ones he had listed, Focus ,Bravo and Astra. If its city driving he needs to do what better driving position than one that gives you a good view? If he was after good car he would stick to the Audi, it sounds like a cheap newish car will...

    What would be a good "downgrade"?

    For that kind of money you can buy a fairly new Pug mate. 307 or 308 with the 1.6 hdi engine is a flying machine or at least the one our lass drives is!!! Good driving position and does most things very well and the big bonus is, plus 50mpg and 30 quid car tax!!! and cheap parts and insurance...

    8P S3-clutch pedal stays on the floor.

    Yes it can mate! The clutch pedal sticks slightly on its return after being pressed with your foot it some times does not quite make it back up to it's normal resting position, it is a direct conection to the master cylinder which in realitly is the part that is sticking leaving the clutch...
