    Hey everybody.

    This is my first post and my 2nd week with an audi s3, so please be gentle /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I own a ´00 210 bhp S3 with 80.000 km, and when I´m driving it "Miss Daisy style" (highway, 6th gear, 130-140 km/h, +/-3200 rpm), it´s difficult to keep the pace, as the engine on my car starts to stutter a bit if I don´t accelerate.

    Does anyone get the same behaviour from their S3s? Is this normal for a turbo charged petrol car? I thought it was the turbo wanting to kick in, but I read that on the S3 the turbo kicks in at 1800 rpm.

    What can I do about it??
