Had my 2000 S3 for 3 years now and only use it to go back and fore work, a couple of miles a day. It's only done 32000 miles and touch wood have had no real problems to date. For the past week or so, its seem to be having problems in 2nd and 3rd gear, like a massive lag on the turbo and then it kicks in again, nearly got caught by a bus today pulling out of a junction because the lack of power.
I'm by no means an enthusiast like most of you on here and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the problem. I've read in other posts something about a MAF sensor. Could someone enlighten me on what that is and cost to replace if that was the problem.
P.S. great site, keep up the work
