    DBW Throttle Question

    Hi all,

    I just need to know if all S3's (L8) have DBW throttles? I presume they are but just need to confirm? Checked the forum but there's not definate answer.


    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure they are all DBW. I think the lower spec range A3's are cable.

    All S3's are DBW, my early APY with no ESP is DBW.

    Thanks a bunch gentle-folk, the local Revo agent here was under the impression that certain early S3 models may have had cable throttle. I'm booking in for the sample Revo remap on Saturday, just to see how i like it.... I hope its what i'm expecting..... Thanks again.

    take a look at you throttle body in the engine bay. if there is a servo with wires on the side then you have a DBW

    edit: should say EPC on the dash when you turn the ignition also if DBW
