Wind Deflector Trend-setter
Just thought I would make a post to say hi as I've just joined this forum following collection of my first Audi on Saturday.
It's a 2000-plate S3 with some good points and some bad points (that I'll be looking to resolve ASAP).
*12 months MOT
*3 owners from new and first two were lady owners that purchased from dealerships
*New brake pads/discs
*Good tyres (aside from below)
*Some optional extras - Luggage net, leather armrest, bose sound system
*TT 18" alloys
*Remapped to 245BHP as part of last service (major service in June this year - Whole bill >£1200)
*At 5k the ABS/Traction control lights come on and stay on - Although don't appear to have any other effect
*I've noticed this morning that the OSR tyre has a bulge in it so will need to be getting another sorted
*Syncro for 2nd is getting weak - crunches at over 3k when changing down from 3rd.
*Stereo has a bizarre habit of going to full volume when trying to alter slightly even if i'm trying to turn it down?
I've come from a 2.0L Turbo-diesel to this, and am certainly going to notice ~28mpg from ~45mpg!
Here's a quick pic:
If anyone's got any immediate advice on the issues above that'd be great. A friend of mine has a VAG testing unit-thing (like my lingo?) and I'll be plugging that in over the next few days to see if I can work out the first issue - Best case scenario is a couple of new ABS sensors? :P
