    I think it could be better option than instaling Haldex adapter, for faster driving. I am curious about how it will go with haldex... Have to wait till someone will buy it.

    Quaife + Haldex controller + remap should get S3 closer to Evo abillities.
    What about ESP, becouse I found funny thing when driving with ESP off. Sometimes at a sharp turn when I use handbrake just to put my car sideways and then accelerate to finish with a nice drift, just after using hand brake my car feels like ESP is still working and brakes stop my car.
    Can someone tell my why this happen, becouse I'd be very happy with turning this s**t off . Is it ESP or EDS alone does it?
    2007 S3, bucket seats, flat bottom steering wheel, bose, sunroof, plus all the extras, RNS-E soon retrofited with bluetooth, next year - remap plus turbo back exhaust, haldex upgrade for sure.

    On computer there is ESP of, but in practis it is still working but in smaller level. I know that you can turn of ABS by moving out fuse, but friend told me that moving ESP fuse, could automaticly disabled haldex.

    Even If you put to S3 LSD, Haldex controler and ohter stuff it will never be close to Evo. I had evo 9 made for 360hp, AYC and ACD are amazing. For everyday driving S3 with small mods is the best.

    Czesc.

    You shouldn't need to use the handbrake to get the back end out man. Plenty of lock and ooddles of power should suffice

    Welcome to the club Wolfevo!
    Youve just come in contact with the EDS.
    On ALL other Audis you can deactivate EDS, but not on the S3 8P.
    I test drove the TT 2.0T and by keeping the ESP button held down for more than 5 secs you disable both ESP/ASR and EDS.

    I actually think that this so called "feature" is what sucks absolutely most about the S3.
    You cant drift it! - not even when its raining like hell!

    But, if you buy a A3 2.0T, then you can fully deactivate the EDS.

    My S3 is at a workshop now for a 12k service. I will talk to them and see if they can modify this via VAGCOM.

    You car have a different factory setup than the S3.
    You can fully disable EDS by holding the ESP button for 5 secs, which we cant

    The Torsen (TORque SENsing) diff - available from Quaife or Peloquin's in the US - profoundly upgrades the awd 8P chassis.

    Accelerating mid-turn the front outer wheel receives more engine torque, pushing the nose into the turn.

    Combined with the more aggressive HPP, the torsen really helps lay power down. I had mine installed at the smae time I had the turbo done, and I can't imagine how I could have gone on without.

    It is a very, very nice upgrade. If you are curious as to how it feels, and can travel to Paris, let me know: we'll go for a (non)spin.

    That may be so but I don't need to disable the ESP to get a bit of a slide.

    Yesterday I test drove my S3 on snow/ice conditions. First thing is that I'm going for sure to instal haldex controler, becouse I feel that sometimes haldex doesn't give so much power to the rear wheels that it should. Second thing I noticed is when U are driveing from slide to slide with ESP off everything works just fine until U press the brake. Then ESP comes to action and stabilize the car. So I keep waiting for some company to release proper software or something similar. For me S3 is a very good car, an everyday driving is just perfect, but I'd like it when I press the ESP button to TURN OFF all the nacessary systems that spoil the fun. It's not just concerned with safe diving. I feel that I might crash becouse off a stupid system that did something to my car that I didn't want it to do.

    Sorry for the OT but yesterday I also test drove S3 on a road where I did it with my previous cars. At some specyfic point I mesure the speed of my car from a standing start. And S3 is reallly fast On a Civic Type R i had aprox 194 km/h. With A8 4.0 tdi was pretty the same, but S3 did 220km/h I didn't suspect it to be so much quicker.
    Yes. It doesn't feel so quick that it is actually.
