    Has anyone bought one yet??

    Nev, the vent you use in the pic is from a LCR yeah?? have you got any pics of one in a facelift S£ vent? as the dial is different and im sure it has i lip round the outside of it?
    or when installing do i keep my vent dial? I've got the money waiting just want to be sure of the vent before i buy the gauge.

    My thoughts entirely. I'm ready and waiting too if the vent is S3 Facelift.

    Cheers

    I imagine my question got lost in with everything else, but does anyone know if the oil temp actually works, it's shown in one of the pics but is also listed as an issue? I'm also guessing that with an early S3 we might also not get the EGT?

    It looks very much like the one from a prefacelift A3, although the pictures make it look a tad more curvy at the ends...

    On the car I tested (Colinra's) there was EGT but no oil temp, if you have a vag-com cable you can have a look and see of you have the sensors.

    Pre facelift a3/S3 and leon vents are the same,we did a group buy on cupra net a while back for peps to update to facelift type,i would still like to see one in the middle drivers vent,because i use my side vent in the winter for demisting.Nev did you try to mount in a vent panel ala tt styley so that peps could have same trim options as tt versions?cheers Andy Ps could anyone do a photoshop mock up of what this might look like with ali/carbon or black finish, to save time?

    I am going to go for one. Sadly, not this month. I need another month or two to come up with an excuse to tell the wife. There is no explaining that i got this free at the Scrappies' lol.... We will see, might just go for it if we can get a nice discount of 10% or so that was being talked about..

    Sorry but I'll have to come off the list for now. I really can't justify buying one while my car is still running badly.

    We have a bit of a chicken and egg problem here.

    How about I do a massive discount for the first person to order. In return they need to take get some pics for fitting and installation instructions.

    Anyone tempted!

    Probably, you can do a try out with vag com to see, if you can start up vag com and post up a screen shot of what you get when you select the engine management ecu, I will be able to give a better answer.

    Once we have got the A3 guys up and running I plan to pop over to the A4 forum.
