    What have you done to your 8V today?

    @Rob2k68 Rob if Midland VW are doing the work on your car, ask Simon/Jodie/Simon about their experience of the 034 dogbone mount on my old car..they're not big fans to say the least and either am I. Can't remember if I told you about this when I saw you a while back, it was a very expensive fix...

    1.0 TFSI Opinions

    Drove this engine as a manual Seat, had a really nice characteristic thrum I thought, like half a Porsche flat 6 :) Low speed driving was ok, it didnt seem that comfortable on the motorway despite it still being relatively smooth. 1.4 TFSI is a great engine too and would be my choice.

    Downpipe fitting price?

    I do mate, if you pm me your number I'm happy to send a video, its not the best of quality. If you check BCS automotives youtube channel and listen to the Leon 280/S3 8V/MK7 GTI/R's that would give you an idea of what it sounded like. I just had a catback on mine and highly recommended it. What...

    Lack of power in the rain

    I had this issue on my 1.8 tfsi also (in the rain too weirdly enough) never got to the bottom of it even with Audi, car felt like it had about 50bhp in 1st gear then come 2nd gear its got full power. Turning off traction control seems to fix the issue, which isnt ideal obviously. Especially if...

    Facelift S3 S-Tronic Question

    Certainly worth trying to get to dealers where they have one you can drive? Then you can see back to back against another S3. Just a thought.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Hi Exhaust has a different routing on S3 as it is quattro and your car is not, therefore will not fit regards SJ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    225 to 235 section tyre

    I know theres a lot of 4WD owners on here so dont have so much of a worry about traction (unless youre running higher power then stock) but has anyone considered a wider sized tyre than OEM? Say from 225 section to 235? Or if you're wearing 19's then 235 to 245's? I'm front wheel drive and tuned...

    ECU remap advice please

    I echo the above comments. I had my car tuned by Rik and asked him the same question and he advised against it, I still thoroughly recommend you stick with him and I'm pretty certain he can do your dsg map too as he's done them on Golf 7R's. He also has a dyno that gives more realistic readings...
