    My a3 failed on emission not too long ago, the mechanic suggested puttin redex into the a3 and then booting it around for about 30minz and then take it bak to the mot centre. Worked like a charm

    doubt his problem is down to a 'dirty' engine as he only rebuilt it 3 or 4 weeks ago, although im sure he would love to put some redex in his fuel and watch all his problems wash away :)

    You know me too well dude! lol. It won't be that sort of issue pal.

    That may work if you aren't much over on emissions. Mine was catastrophically high!! lol.

    Should be OK now. Average MPG is climbing also after resolving lambda controller issues. :icon_thumright:

    Yay!! Straight through by miles. No problemo.

    Had VAG COM plugged in at the same time just to check it was behaving itself.

    Once nice shiny green ticket for the S3. :icon_thumright:

    Not really mate to be honest. The issue that I had wouldn't affect the engine at WOT.

    However, exhaust gases smell a LOT less fruity and average MPG has gone up from 18.2 MPG to 21.7 MPG.

    LOL, only marginally. What with fuel costing the £4.2 million per litre is does. Especially the good stuff.

    Still, around town, it is noticeably better on fuel I must say. Although I do still seem to be putting fuel in it every 2 mins.
