Had the S3 a couple of weeks now and loving it!
I ordered audi ami/USB cable 4f0051510p blue collar, listed on audi site for the s3 2009>, my car is my2010 and got the genuine cables new for £18 instead of £50+ i lthought bargain but received today, plugged in and nothing.
Ami source lit orange just says please wait... And nothing.
Take it I have wrong cable or there is a problem with my Ami?
I then fired her up to see if it made a difference and being the first time I have started without music playing I noticed a very faint tap from the engine/gearbox which was heard less with clutch depressed, I can only describe as quiet flywheel chatter.
Engine was cold and searching suggests release bearing/input shaft however being a very quiet noise I wondered if this is a common characteristic of the car rather than a fault?
I had similar noise on my previous Astra vxr but input shaft/release bearing were fine, had faint whine in 6th though and turned out to be common bearing issue.
Other thing I've noticed is going over bumps or bumpy roads there is a squish coming from front shocks as they absorb the bump, I get it from my caddy van and have heard others which do the same so know it's normal on them but unsure if it is normal for the audi also?
Only audible with windows down but rear doesn't seem to do it. Searches came back as bushes need replacing but I can't see how the bushes would affect the shock squishy noise which it seems to be.
Going to try some wd40 and see if I can narrow it down!
Hopefully these are all characteristics of the car and being new to me I am just over analysing everything little noise!!
Looking to take to Mrc tuning soon for health check, milltek, filter and map and want to make sure everything is sound and if not spend money on that rather than spending money on toys first!
Any advice greatly appreciated
