    My A3 so far

    Hi peeps thought i would let you no what a great time i am having with my audi a3 1.8T or should i say not having
    it all started with i trip to willingbrough i handed a man Ł1400 for my a3 i got half hour down the road and it would not boost after a while and the gears were acting a little bit like a teenage boy so i call the AA and get it towed home the next day i got the car to my mates shop for to salt her out as i have now thought she mite need a bit of TLC lol well my good friend done the following for me
    Full gold service inc
    oil , oil fillter, air fillter spark plugs fluid levels
    replace a pipe to the turbo
    selector shaft to remote knckle
    n/s gearbox seal
    front brake disc's x2
    front brake pad's
    rear brake disc's x2
    rear brake pad's
    weld exhaust middle section
    4 x wheel balance
    4 wheel laser alignment
    solus service re-set
    for the great price of Ł600
    i got in her yesterday and she was driving like brand new was so happy to have her up and running but when i parked up at my auntys house then come back she was nearly dieing when i tryed to pull off
    she had one gear and it was 3rd yep a diffrent part of the arm or what ever it is called had snap to do with the gears so i had to drive there in 3rd i jst hope i have some clutch still on her as i live in london and there is a lot of stopping and starting and trying to pull off in 3rd gear is hard work well they are fitting the new part tomorrow so shold have her back on the road and keep her there



    i all so have somthing to ask i got her up to about 70 or 80 and she run a bit ruff for a couple of sec maybe even just one but then she was ok i am guess where she has not been driving for awhile she just needs a good run in

    unless he's had the gearbox off for that little service i think Ł600 is extremely expensive for what you have had done.....

    hope you get it sorted soon
