    Nurburgring Oct 7th - 10th

    I'm in (as already mentioned). Planning for next year gives us plently of time to organise dates, but please be under no illusion of commitment required. We need 12 to make this a success, we can't have people dropping out at the last minute. It'll be a great few days away :D Kev.

    University Dissertation handed in. So I'm now back LOL

    It's a nice feeling to get that final copy binded and submitted. I know what you mean about the long hours, but it's all worth it in the long run. Then you can look back and be pleased that you never have to do it again! Kev.

    Probably because of a site crash last year which lost alot of data. Perhaps we should look at cleaning it up a bit when we have some time! Kev.

    Side Lights

    Matt, IIRC it is a twist and pull, the twist is easy but pulling it out takes the effort, and as I say, there is so little space, especially on the passenger side. Let someone else confirm it's twist and pull then set aside 30mins to do it, keep at it mate, it will come out, just practice. Kev.

    Side Lights

    Rob is spot on. The bulb went on the passenger side by the battery, I tried to get the holder out, no luck, I removed the battery cover and tried again, it's very tight in there, still no luck! Feeling rather ashamed of myself for not being able to change a bulb I took it to our mechanic...

    average AVS mileage on your S3?

    My 1.8T is on AVS. Once serviced it always shows 9300. Then as I get a few miles done it slowly creeps up. I had the car serviced 2 weeks and 1000 miles ago, the AVS now reads 13000ish. I've never seen the AVS go down after a service, only up. I tend to get 19K between services. Kev.

    Diesel to Petrol

    I know what you're saying mate, which is why I'll probably stay with the Audi. What attracted me to the ST was great performance, track days that would ruin the tyres and brakes, but not having to pay to replace them Kev.

    Great Vid. Just shows how a more nimble car can be hard to beat with power alone. Kev.

    Checking Oil Levels / Consumption

    My 1.6 A3 never used a drop between services, my 1.8T A4 uses a very small amount between 20K mile services and my 2.0TDI ate oil in comparison, perhaps 2.5L per 10K miles. Kev.

    more power?

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] It's been prooven that uprated exaust or upraded air filter will not improve performance. Neather cause restrictions on A3/S3's. A remap will by far be the best value for money to increase power. Any reason why you don't want a remap? [/ QUOTE ] whats all this about...
