    if your going for a facelift S3 try and get a 59 plate onwards, some of the '8 plate ones were fitted with incorrect valve springs by audi and misfire constantly once mapped and audi in a few cases have refused to replace them, other then that youll be good to go!

    Is there a certain engine code with the wrong springs or is it just your donald duck?
    Mine is on a 58 plate, just want to know so I can rule out one potential mod.
    Cheers.

    cars produced in the latter half of 2009 onwards (think thats MY10 ones) as far as i know are all fine, not sure of the exact date when Audi rectified the problem though

    Sorry for the noob question, but what does it feel like when the car miss fires?

    I ask because I had the Revo trial tune fitted to my S3 and ever since, i often get a slight hesitation when accelerating moderately hard but before I hit full bost.
    Almost as if the power quickly cuts for just a split second.
    Car only has 30k kms (18k miles), never ride the clutch and the car was only trial tuned for about 6 hours so hope it wouldn't be clutch slipping already.

    Poli,

    Sounds more like a flat spot in the tune/map.

    I had the problem with my Evo X with an ecutek tune and went back to ask about the hesitation when you accelerate hard, which is as you described. Had new maps loaded and was all good again..

    Thanks Charlie.
    That's what I thought it to be.
    just got a bit concerned with all the talk of dud valve springs, slipping clutches, etc.

    Could be a misfire, it normally feels like a series of small stutters, if the revo trial is over there shouldn't be any effects left from it.

    hmmm. well yeah, that's what it feels like.
    2 or 3 small stutters that doesn't happen every time.

    The problem is, replicating this at Audi.
