Hi guys, first of all, hello to you all!
I've had a look round the forum and it's stacked with info that's been helpful.
However, I've now experienced my first major issue with the car. It's a 2000 model S3. I've had it 2 weeks now and I'm loving it.
I had to do a bit of a spirited launch from a junction the other day to get out the way of what could have been a bad accident. At that point my ESP light came on the dash. After I sat for a few minutes with the ignition off, it went off again when i started the car up. It also randomly comes back on if sitting idling for any length of time.
About the same time, I noticed my turbo wasn't now kicking in as well as it was, its not giving me the wow factor anymore. It used to spool up from about 2k revs and then speed up really fast.
I've not checked any hoses yet, mainly because I've not had the time, plus I don't know what hoses I should be checking. Any advice peeps? Also are the ESP light and turbo issue connected in anyway or is it just a coincident?
The car is completely standard and I am only the second owner after an older business woman owned it.
Here's the car in question
Thanks for reading!
