    Hi all,

    Took my 2000 S3 to a local VAG specialist today as I had an amber oil sensor light come on.

    Turns out the oil level sensor has died so a new one needs to be fitted.

    When the diagnostics were plugged in it also threw up a dodgy N75 and they have suggested again a replacement having checked all the hoses.


    My question is where is the best place to buy these parts?
    I'm not after oem per say but a good quality part none the less.

    I would stick with OEM for both them, you will only have to change them sooner if you buy non genuine. A genuine N75 can be purchased from eBay easily, make sure it's brand new and the correct code.

    I got my Oil Level Sensor from Euro Car Parts, was about £47, its a genuine one, but just had the make filed off.

    The N75 was from TPS, cant remember the price, but wasnt that expensive to be honest.

    Thanka guys will give that a look. Ideally want the car to be running spot on so I can have it mapped eventually.

    Does anyone happen to know the correct codes for a 2000 S3 APY oil level sensor and N75 valve?

    Apparently there are two very similar for the oil sensor but I can't check as I have no access to get under the car
