    Audi A3 2.0 TFSI 2007 Misfiring and stuttering (losing power)

    I prefer "proper". None of this TFSI chocolate head bull**** and paper mâché cams. Oddly enough last time I registered a misfire in a VAG I got some pills online, very discrete packaging and next day delivery. They made the missus a little sick, but much more effective than a coat hanger.

    £30k budget - What car would you buy?

    Two RS2's, one to drive and one to look at.

    Jardo's gone and got an 8P diesel slayer! ***with Instagram updates***

    Who knows! Toying with the idea of buying another 8L and starting all over again, or a 205 or Mk2.

    I put a bulb in this the other day, £4.07. The most I have spent on actual maintenance on a car ever. Despite ignoring it the car needs a rear wheel bearing, the flywheel squeals, the front discs are worn out and the pads are low. So I am going to order some coilovers for it to see if this...

    It still looks like this. I haven't done a single thing to it for months, other than clean it. I have decided to keep the diesel, after a bit of debating. So I am going to fit a clutch and get it mapped, then run it along side a track car.

    on board diagnostics through climate control audi a3

    No, 8P has the oil temp on the DIS. PRE FACELIFT ONLY 8L's had it as part of the climate by pressing the bottom right and top right buttons then using the temp buttons to cycle through. It showed live engine data too.

    I've gone for some serious machine polishing today which has really really helped. But it is still a little bit peely. Hi, My old car wasn't an S3, just a lowly FWD A3, although modified to a very high standard. Even so, total chalk and cheese against the 8P. In performance terms the...

    Today I ordered some goodies. Brushed aluminum mirrors. Some carbon goodies. For that diesel race look. As well as a modified DAS6 Pro DA, all the new Angelwax products, and some other goodies.

    The leather is clean, and there is a little bit of synthetic in Heaven. Buffed off, once applied to the whole seat it looked like this - Totally clean, no leather balm or rejuvenator on there. Just cleaned with Heaven and then buffed with a microfiber. Most people don't know how...

    (/snip) I used AN Gel again on the sides of the seats, and the door shuts. A little goes a VERY long way with AN Gel. Did all the door shuts with QED and Autoglym HD, just because I didn't want to waste dark angel on them. Jumped in the back and cleaned all the glass, and applied...

    Afternoon guys. This is a slightly weird response, but basically sorry I have been so quiet over the last couple of weeks. I've literally been on the verge of a heart attack, with average blood pressure averages exceeding 174/111 for two weeks constant. So I've not be able to really do...

    How long with a worn clutch and worn DMF?

    Go get the clutch changed then. :)

    Thanks for the kind words. So Angel Wax is my new product of choice, very easy to work with, very easy to get hold of and well priced. I have used samples of all the products and been very happy with them. So have upped to full size. There are a couple of products here which are new to me...

    Sorry. I didn't see your reply! More on paintwork wizardry later. On Tuesday I threw away every car product I own, my old kit bag, everything. All I kept was a small tub of Crystal Rock, a tub of Desirable, a tub of Dark Angel and a tub of HD Wax. New kit bag ordered, and a trip to the...

    I'd put you put of business big boy, they'd be calling it Jard-Tek ;) Thanks for peer pressuring me into getting Dark Angel; I really love it. And the smell...Matches my 212VIP aftershave perfectly.

    Got the car back from the body shop today. Front and rear bumpers resprayed, bonnet resprayed and a scuff on the rear arch machine polished and a dent pulled. I stripped off the anniversary wax, and hand applied Dark Angel which was supplied by Mark at Brotek. I really really like...
