    whats wrong with a sponge people have been using them for years i also have mitt but dont use it all the time,
    i put a clay over it a few months ago still got a smooth finish from using these products

    a sponge is really bad as picks up little bits of dirt and puts onto your car buy a mircofibre mitt to be safe for your paint in the long run

    up to you but look into it

    Why would a mitt not pick up the same grit etc that a sponge would? I think that's a little bit anally retentive to be honest

    lol Sam i use a microfiber mitt to wash it, its softer, doesnt cause swirl marks that we all hate which ends up scratching the paint, the microfiber mitt wont..however i also use some sort of pan to let the dirt and grim to settle at the bottom of the bucket

    Bloody hell. OCD to the max! :/ Just drive the f'er

    I bought a microfiber sponge type deal, best of both worlds surely? My neighbours already think I'm a bit weird working on my car most weekends. If I start washing my car with a MJ glove on, they'll think I've lost it...

    Sorry for the off topic post, but I've just bought the same tax disc holder, and without some kind of packing, I can't get it to sit in the bottom corner flat. Did you use just the six pads that comes with it, or buy more? Just wondered if you'd be ever so kind to share your secrets

    well the problem came back and the car was holding back again so thought i would change the coils and upgraded to the 2.0 s3 coils still the same problem so thought i would take the inlet mani out and check for leaks as i had noticed abit of oil from the pipes under the that indicated a boost leak ?

    old coils out


    new bosch 2.0 coils in




    pipes undet the inlet mani





    manifold off going to put an oil catch can and get rid of all these dam pipes



    going to change these 2 to




    had a little clean of the oil that builded up over the time of the leak and cleand and put the bottom pipe back

    waiting on my utlrasonic cleaner to do my injectors and going to change the inlet gasket to so this one is off




    also broke my dipstick holder so waiting for a few bits so i can get the car on the road and hopefully sort the holding back problem

    Dre's S3 adventure :)

    It's a nice cleansing to rip out as much old rubber hose as possible and replace it with fresh new silicone. Usually solves a fair few issues a the same time so good luck.

    I'm guessing you have an after market alarm if it's under the bonnet!

    How come you haven't binned the N249 valve yet?

    Yeah it's an aftermarket but they never bothered to disconect the Audi alarm though so if I press the Audi key the stock alarm activates if I press my alarm fob only the viper alarm activates

    Not sure why I have not mate read so many mixed reviews not sure I should

    I've never need a mixed review on here mate! Everyone goes wild for it. Trust me you will like it. Makes the throttle so much more responsive.

    You never know, it could be N249 pipe work related
