    I had a problem bleeding my brakes once before.
    I just found the reciepts from havin it done
    bear in mind I started with my local garage who basicly couldnt do it.

    I took it to JBS
    with a receipt for 100+
    then to a place in Nottingham 315
    then it had to go back there and charged another 50

    and I am pretty sure the brakes still arent spot on like they were when I bought it.

    I got a quote for a full 6 brake line (Goodridge reinforced) replacement with fitting and fluid change for 275 all in the other day i am tempted

    The a3/s3/tt brake system is renouned for getting air in it whilst bleeding, the 8p chassis isn't any better. When i get a spare 5mins im going to have to sort my crappy brakes, some s3's i drive are spot on but quite a few are terrible. And why buy the kit for 50 quid and do it yourself when its 49 for audi to do it, or worse pay JBS 100?

    I bought a vacuum bleeder kit, was awesome. Draper make it, costs 30 quid but you need a compressor.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    That isnt right!

    Is the fluid level dropping?, seems like there's a leak to me if its not air in the system.

    Theres no leak I dont think, I just think theres still air in the system. Its been like it since i got it. I may be exagarating (SP)? when i say its really easy to put the pedal to the floor, but i can put it too the floor when i slams my brakes on. Im not going to worry about it now though,

    People will say im crazy but im thinking of swapping my car in for a fwd a3 or golf annivesary. wants the AUQ engined a3 though with the k03s in it.
