    Audi a3 2.0tdi 140

    Alright. just had my car re mapped and its going well. Saturday night driving home my clutch was slipping. So pissed off as you would be I have been doing some reasearch and not been out in it. Just been out now and it's fine! Is there any particular problems with the clutches or anything. Because I'm really confused

    much appreciated dan.

    Clutches can slip after remap, so much more torque than before.

    Manual clutches on the 8P are known to eventually slip, S3's are more so, only option is to get replaced & imho single mass isn't great as it is heavier & also vibrates, so stick to stock imho, its probably had some stick over the period of ownership if its slipping.

    Temperatures outside can affect it, just dont overload it in high gears going slow and it'll be fine.

    Use the box and keep the revs up to keep it healthier
