As of Tuesday just gone I am now the happy owner of a new S3 Sportback S-Tronic in Sprint Blue with privacy glass
Came from a Nissan 350z (owned all 3 facelift versions from 276ps to 313ps at one time or another) so it was a tough choice for me to make the move from RWD to Quattro and also faced the dilemma of stick-shift or S-Tronic - im happy so far
Im even more happy with the timing as far as the weather is concerned - did not take a lot of snow to get the Z snowed in
Im into my mods but will have to wait for the 3-4k mark before I start that again
So, lets get down to business - a few questions if you dont mind answering which I never really found the answers on in the threads I checked. Doing a remap on the S3 Sportback - is the S-Tronic gearbox up to it or does that need a reflash? Will the remap increase the available torque curve up to atleast 6k RPM? Lastly, I know the S3 only has a 60 ltr tank, but the petrol gauge needle moves in the wrong direction even for my liking Im starting to think that the claimed 33mpg combined is optimistic? Oh, also, Shell 99RON Optimax - any benefits using it - no lambda sensor issues?
Thanks - looking forward to being involved in the forum-looks like a great site
