    Your help for a newbie please

    Having owned and modified nothing but VW Golf's for years I am looking now at a Audi S3 but I have a couple of questions I am hoping someone could help me with.

    1) What sort of average MPG do people get from there S3 ?

    2) How is the best for chip/tuning upgrades ?

    3)Is 13500 for a 99 Vreg is black with leather a OK price

    4) Would it be drive by wire with the VVT engine on that year, I know if I looked but I have not seen the car as yet.

    Your help with these would be great

    Welcome to the board [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    In answer to your questions:

    1) I'm getting high 20s for mpg I reckon - been a while since I checked though

    2) There are loads out there - use the Search function on here and it'll uncover a wealth of information

    3) Sounds good to me, but I don't really know for sure [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Maybe somebody else could put up their opinion

    4) If it's pre-facelift then I think I'm right in saying it won't be DBW, although having said that jimboA3 took his to be remapped earlier this week and they found that it was! More info here

    Hope that helps... probably not much but hey [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
