    tbh im not too sure what the s3 intake is like but most engines have an oil breather pipe which filters back into the intake to go back through into the engine to burn off. If u've changed ur intake u may need to get an aftermarket catch can, if u haven't theres sometimes a lil square filter that sits inside the airbox to soak it up so u dont get fluid coming through just the fumes. Thats what i've seen on a fair few cars which is y im suggesting it may be the same for urs but im sure someone will come along n tell u soon enough

    what does an oil catch can do apart from catch the oil?? does it improve the running of the car

    The fault with the oil in the air intake was because of blocked or split breather diaphram on the top of the rocker cover.
    serious loss of power too changed it runs like a dream now dumping air nicely now
