    hmmm i've heard that the master cylinder can go on these? mines an a3 quattro? not really what i'd call high powerd, maybe the system needs bleeding. if it is just normal tho then thats good any more opinions?

    when ours did this first time, it was the MC, second time same symtoms, we bought another MC to find it was the slave cylinder. What an arse of a job that was.

    So as i replaced a 6 mnth old perfectly fine MC i stuck it on Ebay yesterday actually

    i'm really hoping its not the slave cylinder, as i'm guessing thats quite a big job (expensive) i could probably do the MC my self so will give that a go. :thumbsup:
