Hi. About 6 weeks ago I had the power steering pump replaced at Audi at massive cost of Ł800, as it was very loud and they claimed it could fail at any time.
Well the S4 is back with them now as the new one screams even louder than before.
Had a call just after midday, it needs another new pump (under parts warranty obviously), but they can't get one for at least 7 working days.
So my car is stuck on their ramp in bits and I'm stuck in an 57 reg A3 S Line 1.8T.
The A3 is lovely but it's auto and with the 1.8T engine it just seems very hesitant. Maybe it's just me being used to the S4's power, but my old 1.8T A4 felt quicker.
I think the auto box is better suited to the 2.0T and upwards.
Anyway, lets hope that this is the last time i have to visit them as my experience of owning an S4 has proved to be a costly one lol
