Hi, I've just bought an A3 1.8T Sport, a '99 model. It's a one owner with 90k and full service history, all stamps Audi except the last two which are independents. The car has been well looked after but I have a few issues... The car on paper is supposed to hit 60mph in around 8 secs, i was expecting to 'feel' the power of the turbo, but although the car drives very smooth and quiet, doesn't seem to have any power surge from the turbo, to a point where i'm wondering if it is working? . Can you here the turbo when it spools?? Another problem i have is that the temp gauge never rises above 70, i am guessing that it's the stat. Could this be linked with the turbo issue in that the engine thinks it's cold so doesn't allow full power?? My last issue is that i have found rust blisters alond the roof rail above the rear windows and to be quite honest am gutted. BUT having read other posts, wonder if the 12yr warranty will cover this, my concern being that the last two services were done by non-audi dealers....I will be off to Wolverhampon Audi in the week to see what can be done, fingers crossed! Merry Christmas to all!!
