    Question for the A3/S3 owners. Have any of you removed the rubber by the scuttle panel to help get rid of some heat? If so, all of it or some?

    I've removed all of it mate.

    Is it really that bad?

    What is it for exactly? I ask before the other night mine was stationery on the drive for a while so I popped the bonnet and their was loads of heat in that area, and I remember reading that some people had removed part/all of it..

    Nah the rains not that bad but it's quite wet for August!

    I dont know what it's exact purpose is or whether its made any difference at all by removing it. When I had my catch can venting into the engine bay I nearly choked myself by removing the rubber seal but now the can vents to the rear of the car it's fine. You'll also notice how much louder the engine is without the seal.

    Thats your new project Westy, a twin turbo canoe boat which has the same power to weight ratio as a peanut getting shot out of a canon.

    I've just taken the rubber strip off and left it in the garage incase I want to put it on again at some point. The extra heat escaping should also help defrost your windscreen in the winter :icon_thumright:

    Mines off too, I always see heat coming out and it makes sense as the heat didn't really have anywhere to go before hand.

    It is more noisey but mine makes enough awesome noises as it is.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing, so that I can put it back on when I get rid of it.. It might not do a lot, but any heat out of my under bonnet oven is a bonus..

    I touched the strip when the car had been stationary for a while and it was more than warm, so the air must be trying to get out..

    Didn't really get a good look at your car at AITP dane, will be good to see it at ADI.

    That is why you need the GT30..Lot's to look at and talk ballocks about :thumbsup:

    Mine is still on standard shocks and springs (don't look so disappointed), I'm unsure whether to rock the 18's again, or stick on the 17's...

    And with regards to the 'Prawn' thing, within reason, any heat out of the engine bay is good, surely

    I'm in agreement with you. Prawn says that noting really will escape when the car is moving due to negative pressure but it definitely escapes when at a standstill as you can see the heat waves rising.

    One of the newbies made a good point, we're in a pub and no-one knows what everyone else likes to drink.

    Social - Pint of Carling/Fosters/Grolsch(SP)/Sol/Estrella Levante

    To get messy - Sambuca/Copius amounts of jagerbombs/double JD + Coke

    Other (relaxed) - Guiness, Soco + lemonade

    Sambuca is a bad one for me, but I have been known to consume between 15 - 18 jager bombs in a night!

    I have heard good/bad (depending on how you view it) things about goldschlager.. Meant to be quite good at getting you 'on your way'

    I have retracted my statement and changed it to another personal favorite. :lmfao:

    The only reason I mentioned that was to get the posts flowing, I am allergic to coconut :ninja:
