    Engine codes, with BAM being the most recent (225PS, VVT). I guess AMK was the code before BAM?

    It was the shock absorber! After a VW specialist who took the offending shock off to replace the top mount insisted it wasn't and it seemed fine to him. Had to fork out for ARB, bushes, and top mount to finally discover it but at least it's sorted! :)

    Yes it must be as mine's the AMK and it was the 210 version.

    Yeah, BAM 225, AMK 210. Same engines though IIRC, just with different maps, hence the remap figures for them are the same.

    I've always wanted a a CTR since I was 17, went for a car change when I was 19-20. Saw the S3 on Auto trader and fell in love and brought it lol. Did not know much about them, I know a fair bit now though. Never looked into engine codes though, at the time would not of been able to afford the facelift anyway.
