    slight rattle from right side of head 3.2

    Sorry, my previous post was form a device on which text input was challenging, so now I'm back again with the info you might be after: Various sources report that blocks 208 and 209 are no clear indication of the status of your chain: people have been running fine for quite a while with these...

    slight rattle from right side of head 3.2

    there is a way of knowing if the chain is stretched or not, by unscrewing 1 or 2 bits and looking at the timing markers. it is a 2 hour job, max. I will look up the details for you.

    SSSSHHHH!!!! Keep it on the down low guys, otherwise - in addition to the sat navs - they'll start ripping out your 8P3 headlights and shipping them over to the other side of The Wall...:crying:

    Exhaust back box

    OK, then maybe I misunderstood by thinking he suggested to remove the muffler, for which I apologize. Can you please elaborated on the suggested solution, what does it entail?

    turbo advice

    I know nothing about this, BUT: I think it would help if you posted what kind of engine you currently have (and I think just bolting on some other type of turbo - besides fittment issues - will NOT work straight away, you'll probably require new ECU software)

    Pics of black&silver TTRS/Rotor alloys?

    Hi, anyone's got a link to pics of an A3/S3/RS3 with black&silver TTRS/Rotor alloys? I'm wondering what it would look like if they are painted black but only the center part, not the 'silver' edge. So basically the black-and-red RS3 rims, but without the red :haha:

    Exhaust back box

    (kind of piggyback'ing along on this topic because I may face a similar issue with a 3.2fsi) Can't you just put some new exhaust tips on it, instead of swapping the exhaust itself? If so, what would be a good choice of tips?

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?

    Ok I found this thread that pretty much answers my questions: http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/63799-facelift-s3-8p-rear-diffuser-part-number.html

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?

    Ok, as much as I appreciate your replies, I'm still confused! :think: But maybe I should be more clear, so I'll put some pictures up. Here's the car in question: It's a 2005 A3 that's been fitted with a pre-facelift S3 front bumper (with the mesh fog grilles, not visible in the pics) and a...

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?

    Could anyone please comment on this? I thought the rear valances were the same for 3dr and 5dr, am I wrong?

    s3 skirts for sportback y so hard to fit?

    I think the problem is more in FINDING them instead of FITTING them.

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?

    Really? That's a bummer! How about the 3 door pre- and post-facelift diffusors, can you swap them without any trouble? Then again: this indicates there are differences in the 3 door and 5 door rear valances, aren't there? How about fitting a 3dr rear valance to a 5 dr, will it not fit properly...

    S3 pre- and post-facelift diffusors interchangeable?

    Hi, just checking something here, hoping someone can confirm: I have my eye on a 2005 Sportback S-line that has had the rear valance replaced for an S3 one with the S3 diffusor. It's a pre-facelift diffusor (3 door) however, and I quite like the look of the post-facelift (Sportback) diffusor...

    How much to lower a sport tdi

    With a SE as a reference, then yes you're spot on! Ad's running the 50/40mm springs, which compared to an s-line is a 25/15mm drop...

    Help! 56 TDI 170 - White Smoke and Loss of Power

    no other warning/engine lights? If the turbo couldn't keep up as supposed to, I'd say the engine control unit would pick up on that, so lights would pop up. White smoke often is a sign of water consumption (whereas oil would give blue smoke), so I'd think more along the lines of a blown gasket...
