    the central locking doesnt wrk but alarm still works off keyfob..
    and the power steering feels very heavy when turning? maybe low fluid or leak??

    The steering on the S3's is a little heaver than normal i'd say. I found it pretty heavy compared to an A3 of the same year. The power steering fluid is located under the cover that runs uo the left hand side of the engine bay, you need to remove than and i think its a little green cap from memory. If your low on fluid you'll hear a sort of squeeling when your turning, a top-up should sort it!

    Welcome to ASN! Lots of Scottish members, as Khufu says heaps from Aberdeen. I'm in Aberdeen, but originally from Fife, so pass by your way quite a lot on the way to see my folks. Enjoy your new S3! :wub: x
