    Hi, mine used to over rev by about 900 and i changed a number of things (one at a time) and the one that made the biggest difference was the clutch switch which i got from Audi for about £14 i think and its pretty easy to replace. best starting there

    Changed the clutch pedal whilst you have the trim off bud, unless you've had it changed already :)

    Clutch switch didn't help me with this problem. People to this day still don't know the fix for it. Somebody on here even gave their car into Audi and even Audi didn't know what it was! It doesn't do any harm though so don't get worried about it.

    Your best bet is dealer. I tried GSF and ECP but they don't stock it as it's a dealer part.

    Clutch pedal switch fixed mine, although it did take 2 switches from Audi until the problem was fixed, first one must have been duff.

    Temp sensor, for a few quid worth ago, changing that stopped mine over revving.

    My S3 is a 2002 BAM.

    Have anyone got the part numbers for both the Temp sensor and the clutch pedal switch?

    mine never had a clutch switch, some pilac must have forgot to replace it after the orignal went faulty, or after they changed the clutch pedal, i had a similar problem to yours, the switch made a difference, but coming off the gas a little ealier before changing gear also helped too

    the part number is 1J0927189E it's found on many audi cars
