    Cool new member very impressed

    hi every1 im a new owner of a s3 8l and lovin it had the car 3 weeks and after owning rs turbo's and gti6's and the last **** mobile proton satria gti im very impressed with this motor.
    ive already bought and fitted a forge split r dv (think its set correctly get a little leaking boost bout 2-3 secs then woosh shes off) tryed a cone filter and wat a mistake came straight off going to order a panel filter anybody know which to go for.
    im also certain the cars been remapped (chipped) cause i get pinned in my seat through every gear change and 130 - 140 comes very easily.
    does any1 else get the almost look of amazment from most lookers im 26 but look at me in s3 as if they r sayin how the hell you afford that ha ha ha i love it much better than the boy racer appel i had for years gettin proper respect in a proper motor lol

    Alright mate, and welcome. I'm a fairly new S3 owner myself.

    From a Proton to an S3, I'm not surprised it feels quick!

    I'd use to own a few GTi6s myself, were you on the forum?

    And, I'd cutback on the old text speak, makes you look/sound like a bit of gimp!

    welcome to the forum. The majority of people seem togo with green cotton for the panel filter

    K&N panels also popular but not required, standard filter is more than capable of handling mapped power, i got bored yesterday and grinded the inside of my airbox smooth out of boredom.... seems a popular mod but havent noticed a great deal... remember a couple of extra drain holes...

    welcome to the forum
    i bought a pipercross panel filter as they are dry filters (not oiled) like some that will give you problems with your MAF
    id say pipercross or a green panel filter for trouble free running but just my opion
    as already said the standard filter is fine so the choice is yours,you wont notice much if any difference to be honest

    I had a K&N induction kit on mine, made a "wastgate style" sound when it came off the throttle but the car runs 10 times better with the original airbox on.

    As far as I know you can't get any kind of chatter sound out of the Audi as its a closed system ? Someone with more knowledge will be able to explain that.

    You will get more of a woosh from the dv with a green cotton panel compared to the standard filter...which I like...

    With regards to your bulbs, which ever one is off colour needs replacing.. Probably best just to change both bulbs at the same time.

    no gains with the cold side coversion , just suppose to make the dv valve last longer between servicing it.

    don`t know if white wheels would suit the S3 but each to their own.

    As for the air filter stick with std and change every 10 k

    Welcome!

    My passenger light is a slightly different colour too but never mind!

    I got a green panel filter along with remap. In standard form they aren't that quick depending what you are used to, remapped they are pretty quick.

    I get some looks but nothing compared to my previous Black E46 M3 which i had since i was 25. People either thought i'd won the lottery or a drug dealer in that! I miss it, but i love the S3

    My first car was a Gold A3 slammed on black wheels...Looked the dogs dangles but i was 17 and the police would pull me here and there most of the time.
    Now im 18 and have the S3 its even worse. Ive been pulled over for no reason about 6-7 times within owning it since the start of the year! "Just cheaking your details/car over sir". Feel like saying what the Fu@# makes you think the car is dodgy! But id rather let them waste some time and look busy then have my trousers down at the station.

    Also your bulbs that are D2S are gas bulbs. Its not recommended to touch them yourself as 30,000 volts travel though them i hear. Yes better to replace them both at the same time but there 100 each bulb 1 of the downsides of the bulb but there brilliant when they work
