    LOL, if you can't take the banter then jog on back to the A4 forums. And take your dislike button with you.

    Lads only in the 8L section.

    Only because the 8L is so cheap it can now be bought by chavs and children.

    I've give my car a little bit of beans on the way home from work an noticed a strange noise coming from the engine bay sounds like air squeezing through a tight gap..? That's the best way to describe it.I'm guessing I've got a boost leak so were. Its not pulling like it was and the bloody XS power dp has started blowing :'( grrr... One step forward an two back at the moment.

    Nobody forces you to come on here, but if you are staying then why moan about it constantly.

    This forum is what you make of it, and I love it.

    nobody forces me true, but if someone has an opinion that others don't like, i don't think we should slate it but debate it respectfully rather than deviate from the OP's question. If he wants to beat an Astra then go for it. I'd be pissed if I was promised such figures and some one else with less power still beats me, makes me think my car is poorly, but if then someone said, "mate your car is firstly heavy and those figures are not realistic" then that's appreciated advice. - that's my opinion anyhow!

    Threads like this are pretty pointless though, people need to understand power to weight ratios before they wonder why their more powerful car is slower than the less powerful car. Now lets face it, you can get a lot faster cars for the money you'd spend on an a3/s3 but you didn't buy that faster car for less money, the VXR was built with power to weight in mind the S3 was built as a spirited all rounder. Enjoy it for what it is, there's always going to be something faster out there. Either that or sell it and buy an evo.

    As a member of the largest Clio forum I disagree with that comment, Dave!








    It's no where near - its not got a "road driving stories" sub-forum... ;)

    Oh and in answer to the thread, this can't be rectified with a sub £100 VW mod;
