picked up my 1st s3 lastnight. 1999 210 apy in dark blue.
it seems ridiculously fast. ive had very fast cars before over 200bhp but naturally aspirated ones. i know the turbo adds allot of torque but she just seems too aggressive to be standard. its very hard to drive it gently and over a light dab on the throttle and you are pinned in the seats!!
turbo kicks in very hard at 2.5k but then it looses almost all boost at around 4k. the standard dv makes a fair bit of noise also. when you boot it sometimes the dv will release boost while your foot is stil down :s
only mod i can find on car is a design tek panel filter whoever they are?!
like i said just seems too aggressive and fast to be standard lol
the guy i brought it from said was standard but he clearly had no clue or was lying. told me his mate works at turbotechnics and rebuilt the turbo a few months back for him. is it possible he adjusted the wastegate arm or hybrid the turbo hence its boosting so much now??
any help appreaciated
