Got my hands on a Black 2000 S3 APY today! She has done 129000 miles, but seems pretty good.
I will get pics up when i get some
Just a couple of questions though...
1) She has a wet carpet in passenger footwell... Is this a common problem?
2) She doesnt warm up (water temperature is not constant) When in traffic, temp if fine...(90 deg). When driving, it drops to about 70. Im thinking Thermostat??? If so, are these easy to do? I havent looked yet, its now dark and cold I know you shouldn't use the turbo too much when engine is cold. Does this include when guage doesnt show fully warm??
Also, a general question. It has a brand new Ko4 Hybrid turbo on. With out a remap (totally standard otherwise) Will this have any effect on performance/power??? I havent driven another S3.
Otherwise, The few hours I have owned it, am loving it! Totally different car to my old A4... that was a cruiser.. this just isnt! haha!
Any help on these question will be much appreciated!
