    Just a quick introduction

    Hi everyone! Just thought id introduce myself on this forum. Iv had my s3 around 6 months and have been on the rs246 forum for around 2 months, until i came across this forum just last week, and I must say this one has alot more information on it!
    I had been saving for a little while and have just managed to tune the s3.
    My s3 was a standard facelift running 210 bhp, and I got kind of bored with that very quick. So I recently gave it in for a Remap, diverter valve, and panel filter. After all this, I notice that the car was much better, but had a slight surge at high speeds, as though something was restricting it. So i started to look into exhausts. I found the milltek full system seemed to have a not so good feedback, but it was the only thing i could think of that may cure it.
    I manage to buy a full system off this forum and got it fitted on saturday. I must say, that It definitely cured the surging problem. The car feels very smooth and the torque increase is unbelievable..I think I may need a new clutch very soon!

    Hello to everyone and thanks for taking the time out to read my post!
