    Are there any self study literatures for the 8P S3?

    The wait is unbearable, so I decided to readup on the car. Reviews and such are too subjective, and I've had my test drive.

    Looking for self study literatures like the ones available for the B5 S4 and such

    Poking around, I found this, but nothing more

    It would be great if anyone can help provide/locate a copy for all here to read.
    Information on the S3 is vague and inconsistent on american forums as they dont get the car

    Thanks in advance.

    isnt't the s3 a prodominantly front wheel drive car, with haldex never sending more than 50% to the rear?

    even with the uprated haldex unit it never sends more than 50% to the rear. all it does is have that 50% engaged BEFORE the front wheels start slipping, not after it senses it.

    Trolling the internet and found this, should be useful for any 2.0t 200bhp (not ed30 or S3) owners. Someone better correct me, but I was told the A3 and golf/passat/jetta share the same 2.0t engine.

    "Are there any self study literatures for the 8P S3"

    The short answer is yes, however most of them are in German. I hope to be able to get some in English in the not to distant future.

    ...meanwhile, stick around this website where you find the valued opinions and expert knowledge of real owners, many of whom have owned several of them for extended periods.
