    Hi guys new member and rs3 owner well nearly

    Hi, I am awaiting my car status is code 38 in port of exit released so hopefully not long now,
    I have grown up with golfs and have kept my vr6 in storage as I just can't part with it, I've just got rid of my e93 m3 I was let down with it really and my previous e46 m3 so I was lucky enough to buy this rs3 as it was a cancelled order, I got a phantom coming without the plastic chrome lol,

    I am hoping to get my rs3 remapped but not upgrade the exhaust yet, I got a quote of nearly £800 which I thought was abit excessive I'm located in sunny southed on sea so if any one can help let me know

    Cheers

    You reckon your the only person on jersey with one? What's the deal with the miltek is it really loud!!! Or not much more than original? As I wanted to get the miltek turbo back fitted with the remap same time but thinking about it I don't want an ott sounding exhaust that sets off car alarms as I go along if I did I'd get a subaru lol , when I finally get me rs3 I'm gonna go down qst tuning and see how loud the owners rs3 is with the miltek fitted I think , I'm still counting the hours tic tok

    Was thinking aswell if anybody is thinking of getting a remap and exhaust upgrade to their rs3 maybe we could get a deal from somone so drop me a message

    Nightmare! You getting anything from Audi as an apology? I'd be after some sort of gesture.

    I've still got 5 weeks to wait for my RS3. Been waiting 14 months already, so 5 weeks is nothing...

    Hi sticks you sound like you may have a similar problem there as I had on my last s3 without reason every warning light and warning sound and failed to start. Audi said it needed a new ecu 10 days later they said it was damage in the loom caused during construction.
    Hope everything works out well for you.

    Mmmmm.
    i was told that every rs3 was driven by a professional Audi driver when tested.
    the car wouldn't have got through testing like that.
    hopefully sorted when you get it back.
    good luck.

    I got it back today, wow what a car well worth the wait , I have just got rid of my e93 m3 and this rs3 feels better to me so it's all worked out good,
    One niggly issue is the centre console supports which stick out at the bottom are abit hard on me left knee apart from that the car is flawless if anything an upgrade to my e93 , well pleased!!!!


    the problem was the gateway ecu not main ecu as I said before,
    I will be taking some pics tomoz , Thanks for all your help guys

    Gents,
    I took delivery of my RS3 in February, I had waited 14 months and when I got it cruise control and electric folding rear view mirrors were missing! Got loads of 'excuses' from Audi but they are 'trying' to sort out a retrofit. Although a wrong ECU is just comedy its not like its picked out of a box written 'ECU for S3 and RS3'
    I've had several 'plays' with it and dont really think re-mapping is required its already bonkers fast!
    Not sure if its true but supposedly on 500 RS3s in right hand drive.

    I heard ther was only 500 but this was a while ago.
    I think they have since decided to make more though.
    Still a rare beast though.
