    ive seen alot of 0-60 times for tuned s3, but cant find too many for tuned a3 such as quattro or t-sport.

    just want to know what kind of times people are getting for these cars and how much bhp these cars are running to get these times

    i would of thought you cant get much more than 250bhp out of these without spending big bucks (£2000+)

    I managed 0-60 in 6.1 seconds in my remapped S3, it's always going to be limited by the gearing. RichA3Turbo gets it in about 5.1 or 5.3 i think, with 320bhp.

    Just thought I'd add that S3 has Quattro and 6 speed gearbox, Rich get's those times in a FWD 5 speed A3 with IHI.

    Am I right in thinking that the IHI is from the scooby?

    Well, if JabbaSport ask £900 odd for the K03s, I guess a complete IHI conversion is going to be expensive! :yes:

    Certainly myself, Rich and Jojo's time came from Inters last year. All verified. There was a thread about it somewhere, think it's this one...

    audi driver february 2006 quote the s3 we tested in 1999 did 0-60 in 6.1 secs and 80 mph in a fraction over 10 secs this was bog standard factory car no mods.your car must be quicker with all the mods you have done surely chris. i would be dissapointed if my car is no quicker now i have had the remap,ive not had it dynoed since ive had it done but certainly feels quicker.[think you are selling your car way to short]:confused:

    so its a realistic claim to get mine around the 6.5secs mark if i go for a custom remap which will give me around 225bhp

    Here's the video I made of 0-60 in my remapped S3. Bang on 6.0 seconds. Not scientific but indicative.

    http://s96.photobucket.com/albums/l181/busterjet/?action=view&current=run3.flv

    Don't get hung up on 0-60 times. With the S3 you need to change gear twice whereas in rival cars it can be done in second gear. If measured over 0-70, by which speed other cars have to change gear twice, the S3 will cream them.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the whole of the VAG group are rumoured to offer slightly 'non-standard' cars on their press fleet. I wouldn't be surprised if the press S3 that Audi Driver drove had a mild rechip to get those times 'as standard'.

    As mentioned by jcs, the press car was slightly tuned with a remap of around 240bhp apparently, how do we know you ask?, RyanC on here owns the ex' press car, but he's had a big turbo done on his car now lol.
    Audi quote 6.7 secs for 0-62 and 6.6 secs for the 225 model, Autocar magazine managed 6.4 secs in the press car with their own timing gear, I got 6.86 secs in my remapped wearing 19" wheels and hitting the rev limiter in 1st.

    An important thing to consider is that when you measure 0-60 with a g-tech or such devices there is no reaction time involved because timer starts when movement is detected. On the other hand, on track generally time starts counting when the go signal occurs so reaction time plays in, and could even be a whole second…
    In my case, results where measured without reaction time.

    i honestly dont think my car is 0-60 in 6.4 secs nor 6.6 maybe 6.8 -7.0.

    My mate has a RS Focus without even having a proper head to head i recon it would whoop my arse. A CTR i recon would do the same. I am running 225 at the moment & i hope with a custom remap i would smoke both of the above. On comparison tranmission loss is larger on the S3 & the weighing in @ 1400kg's doesnt help compared to the 1200ish of either the above.

    Still though i prefer my 4WD, Bose system, electric seats & whatever else it is that makes this weight up.

    Sorry, my reply was to Cambells question about remapped S3 times. So the times quoted were for just a remapped S3. DavidR and myself tried pretty hard in the thing, and it turned out to be one of the faster chipped S3's on the day. I'm not sure 6.1 is possible in a standard car, with standard tyres, fuel, etc.

    A little quicker. Maybe 5.6 seconds. I'll have to wait till inters to finds out. The biggest difference will be in 1/4 times.

    I have no printed proves, but can affirm that with the same instrument I measured my car right after buying it, stock (only with upgraded 17" wheels), runs averaged 8.2 secs, which is what the car specs say. Then, mod after mod, practice after practice, finally got my 6.0 record.:salute:
