    R-Tech Here I Come

    That's what I love about R-Tech... A lot of tuners would just bang a map on, charge you £300/£400 and shove you out the door... Not Niki though, he's just a VAG legend lol

    gloss black or matt black roof?

    Gloss all day long. As above, what colour is the car? If it's blue, green or black I wouldn't bother, it'll look pants... Silver and Red I'd probably do and Yellow could look kinda funky... It's down to your taste though ;) FYI - my mate wrapped his BMW in this weird matt gun-metal stuff and...

    S3 8L Xenon headlights - Why has one turned darker/more yellow than the other?...

    Hi everyone, Quick few questions... I've got an 8L S3 with Xenon headlights and one of them has turned a yellow-ish colour... Pretty much the same colour as a normal halogen bulb. It's only on one side, I've got no other bulbs out or anything like that and the other "good" light is still as...

    Turbo sound

    Are you kidding? They're the more likely to crack than the windscreen man especially after a map lol

    Turbo sound

    The sound you could be hearing could be the turbo blades catching on the inner housing due to knackered bearings... The only explanation I have for the sound being on both wot and over-run... If it was a boost leak it would only be on wot and if the DV is dumping as it should, there will be no...

    whats the best stage 1 map to get for a standard S3

    True, but a custom map from R-Tech is cheaper than a generic REVO map anyway... and it's tailored to the engine and the place that does it is more likely to highlight any underlying issues ;)

    whats the best stage 1 map to get for a standard S3

    R-Tech or Badger5 My map was done recently by R-Tech, but I've also heard many good things about Badger5. I wouldn't personally go for a revo map... Because they're generic, you'll never get the most out of YOUR car. Every car is different and what works on one car and makes 270bhp could make...

    Anyone bought a turbo from this guy on ebay?

    Remember feedback doesn't really count for the quality of their items in that particular item... How many people would wait until it's fitted, never mind let it run for a few weeks before leaving feedback?... Always be cautious when buying stuff on ebay.

    A small guide to doing basic cylinder head work ie porting/polish/gasflowed

    I would love to do something like this one day... Not necessarily to the S3... This sort of thing fascinates me haha

    S3 floor mats

    I got some really nice plain plush fitted matts custom made by Halfrauds :) cost nearly £50 mind... You tell them the material you want, the edge binding, and a few other customisables and a week later they were ready to collect :)

    Exhaust upgrade.

    They're an absolute pain in the t*ts to fit... Depending on how much you want to struggle, you can either take the head off and have a hard life, or you can leave the head on and loose skin and have a harder life... If you're wanting more than 280bhp on a standard turbo, you will need to change...

    What to buy?? :P

    Go for the Badger5 TIP and a jetex or a BMC twin cone... The exhaust side is restrictive on these engines, but the Badger5 TIP is just amazeballs :) Then get a downpipe ;)
