    Sorry mate - think you'll have to ask Audi that one !

    However, you know what Audi are like - it's highly likely that there will be a difference somewhere !

    Cheers, did it sort out your warm start issues? Or are you yet to have it done?

    mate if it is the same problems as ive been having with warm starting then its not your starter motor its more likely to be a sensor. i take it cold starting isnt an issue??? ... my problem there came from a faulty 4 pin coolant temperature sensor. changed it and away she went. problem solved. maybe yours is the same!?

    i now have to change the G62 temperature sensor as i dont get an engine temp. reading on the dashboard. ... does anyone know where this sensor lives on an 8L S3?

    Wrong section mate - this is the 8P forum - try on the 8L forum

    yeah i know, im just saying... it could be a rather inexpensive sensor as opposed to a starter motor! i was getting warm start problems myself.

    Hi russelj80,

    cheers for that mate. I have read that this is an issue with 8P's as well.

    The symptoms on mine are a little different from what I have read the sensor causes, If I leave my car for 24 hours without driving it. When turning over it sounds like the battery is dead, but will start on the 2nd turn.

    When warm the flat battery thing is no longer an issue but it will turn over 4-6 times before starting and then start very rough with a shudder. The engine is new, and was changed in Feb this year so I have ruled out any engine issues.

    The starter itself when spinning makes a squeak which coincides with the engine turning over.

    I'm going to take it back up to the place that fitted the engine, explain what I have read about the issues here and see what they think.

    Cheers!

    Hi, i havent fitted a starter yet but i think i have read the same thread you have , where people have replaced the temp sender etc but this didnt cure the problem but a new starter motor has!
    Our a3 (only had it 2 weeks) starts perfect from cold but after a good run and left for five minutes it can take 5-10 seconds to get it started again, which doesnt sound alot but its quite embarrassing in a newish car! but my starter does sound fine every time and seems to turn the engine over quickly, but maybe not quick enough when hot?!?
