    Well its finally gone

    Well its time to say good bye after 20 months of ownership. Its new owner came to pick up the S3 this morning and gave me a nice bankers draft for the privelege. The S3 has been awesome after a few thousand quid spent on it but was worth every penny. Its gone for a new life in Ireland. Now...

    tyre choices

    Right lads - I need some new tyres for the rear of my motor. I bought some Pirelli P zero all round and for some reason the rears have worn out slightly faster than the fronts. They've worn out relatively even which suggests I don't need tie bars or does it because they've worn so fast...

    CC Phase 1 and a new N75?

    I'm assuming the S3 came out of the factory with an N75H valve but thinking of maybe changing. Has anyone changed their N75 on an S3 once they've had their motor remaped. I'm thinking of changing mine and wondered will it make any difference or will it put it into limp mode. I suppose I should...

    Brembo GT pads wear rate

    Jumped in my car today and the brake pad sensor light came on the dash. I only got some new pads definately no more than 10,000 miles ago. I haven't had chance to look at them because its dark and wet but wondered if 10k was about right. So roughly what mileage are you guys getting out of a...

    Alternative to adjustable rear tie bars???

    Instead of getting adjustable rear tie bars would these work on OEM tie bars? Seems a lot cheaper than £300. You can get the kit for about £100 and probably fit within an hour. Anyone interested? A lowered TT/R32 will have too much rear camber; left unchanged can lead to premature inner...

    Coilpacks on the way out?

    When I start the car for the first time especially on a cold morning I have problems firing the car up. It starts on 3 cylinders and normally takes a couple of blasts of the accelerator. Well this morning it sounded like this for about 20 seconds. Kept sounding like it was starting on 3...

    Performance Haldex

    I've managed to source a band new unit for £400. Does anyone own one on here? What are they like? Will my car oversteer a lot more? I've done a quick search and can't find a lot of info on them. Any info is really appreciated. Matt

    Eibach springs - pics included

    Finally managed to get my car into Awesome on Thursday for them to have a look at the Koni FSD's as the ride height had been raised by approx 20mm. They agreed that it wasn't supposed to raise the car by 20mm and fitted some eibach pro-kit springs. The handling has transformed again. The...

    Exhaust centre section

    I'm thinking of getting rid of the OEM centre section with the silencer and squashed piece of exhasut for a straight thru peice of pipe connected to the OEM rear rear silencer. Would this be ok or could the S3 suffer from power loss? Thinking of going for a custom piece of pipework a...
