    i.e...when sitting idling it goes from 1000 revs for 4 seconds then drops to 500 for a sec?? like its away to cut out but it doesnt??
    the central locking doesnt wrk but alarm still works off keyfob..
    and the power steering feels very heavy when turning? maybe low fluid or leak??
    anyway im having it looked at on monday..
    its an imolla yellow one
    looks like a twin exit powerflow exhaust
    full reiger kit
    19s
    coilovers iunsure yet really
    baileys dump valve i think
    been really busy and not had proper look around it yet..
    its a 1999 v reg with 114k...history up to 90+k
    its in need of a good clean though!!! wont get chance till saturday now with working

    The steering on the S3's is a little heaver than normal i'd say. I found it pretty heavy compared to an A3 of the same year. The power steering fluid is located under the cover that runs uo the left hand side of the engine bay, you need to remove than and i think its a little green cap from memory. If your low on fluid you'll hear a sort of squeeling when your turning, a top-up should sort it!

    Welcome to ASN! Lots of Scottish members, as Khufu says heaps from Aberdeen. I'm in Aberdeen, but originally from Fife, so pass by your way quite a lot on the way to see my folks. Enjoy your new S3! x
