    Hi folks, Thought I should introduce myself. Registered on here a couple of months ago to gain information on Audi S3's and I was wanting to get one.
    So on Sunday I went up to Aberdeen and picked up an 02 plate Silver S3. Its got a few modifications 19" bbs lms reps, eibach lowering springs and bailys dump valve.
    It does however have a few problems that need sorted, hopefully nothing major. The whine from the turbo is slightly concerning and lack of boost!
    Its the second Audi I have owned, still got the first one A6 2001 1.9 tdi. Which will be going up for sale once I have everything sorted on the S3.
    Enough of me blabbing on, need to do some research on the turbo issue.....

    Hello and welcome Dave, car looks nice (and kind of familiar... not sure where from).

    I assume you've found the 8L section, that's where you need to head for your turbo issue.

    Thanks! Noticed your from Aberdeen, that is where I bought the car, well just outside of Aberdeen (Alford area) this might be why you recognise it?

    I have been having a look through that forum and found some good info on turbo issues. I am going to have to remove it and get it refurbished or a replacement. I am also going to clear all the oil lines and do the timing belt kit at the same time.
