    New brake update

    Just found this info so thought I'd share


    Update-Code: 66G1

    Status: confirmed
    Released: Oktober, 23. 2013
    Cars: RS3 model 2012
    Countries: obviously all
    Description:
    Exchange of right side fender inlet intending to increase the cooling of the brake disk on the right side.
    For Audi RS3s of a certain production period, there is the possibility that a non-uniform temperature distribution can occur at the front brake disks due to different airflows in the fenders.

    I've done enough on RS3 brakes; mine are just fine thank you...

    Bluey's 3rd Service will be in September 2014 and I'll let Stafford Audi address any 'upgrades' then.

    In the meantime (and I've seen the photo and read the messages) I'm just gonna leave it to those 'other' guys...

    Hi Dave, what have they changed ? Are they just a wider slotted vent ?

    The new part blocks off the duct shown in the lower left of the before and after photos, the last photo is the other side which still has the duct.photo2_zps47880c9a.jpgIMG_0643.jpgIMG_0640.jpg

    I'll ask Audi about this when I take the RS in for the creaky driver bucket seat. Just got to find a decent dealer now, no way I'm taking it in to Stockport again !!!!!!

    And Stafford Audi just a little further South...

    I'm told Stafford Audi came 3rd in the Audi Customer Satisfaction listings; well done Stafford Audi (I for one use 'em)

    Oh! I got that slightly wrong, I should have said 3rd in the EUROPEAN Customer Satisfaction Listings...
