    I was thinking of taking my standard engined S3 to a garage for fault diagnosis to see why the turbo is not kicking in . The car feels fast enough once speed has picked up , but I don't get that turbo kick around the 2K rev point.
    No errors whatsoever on vagcom. I can't be bothered to faff around with is it the N75, N248 , DV, breather pumps, blocked pipes, etc. So hopefully they can isolate the problem and get it fixed.

    I did not want to travel further far so anywhere around the Croydon/Purley/Reading/Redhil/South London areas ?

    Ideally I would have taken it to VAGTech, but they are just a bit too far for me - do I need a passport to go that far north?:laugh:

    thanks for that - never heard of them. If there's no other suggestions closer to home I'll email/call them next weeek.
