    1st of my annoying Newbie questions

    Evening all,

    Taking delivery of my first Audi this weekend, a low mileage '99 1.8T 5dr.

    First on my to do list is a quick service.


    • Are BKR6EIX plugs the correct ones for my car? Any other recommendations?
    • Is 10W - 40 the correct oil?
    • Would you recommend using a genuine VAG oil filter or would a UFI (from Opie Oils) be fine?
    • Please don't mock me but I use Forte Engine Flush when doing an oil change, is this ok to use with a turbo lump?
    • ​Any recommendations for a good battery?

    Cheers, Rob

    As above and with a battery i tend to use either Yuasa or Bosch batteries.

    get a battery suitable (fitment size/power) for the S3 at the best price (cheapest) that comes with at least 3+ year warranty.

    Yoda: charging....battery is.
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !
