    Got the S3 back today, feels alot better now actually boosts, sounded very quiet when i first picked it up and the further i drove and the harder i drove it, it started to sound like it was blowing when you come onto boost, Turbo is quite loud when it spools up is this normal? has a Forge DV and a Cone Filter.....
    I dont think it is blowing but just kept getting louder until it really sounds like its boosting and got faster aswell, maybe ECU was adjusting as turbo hasnt worked right for a long time id imagine.
    Another thing when your holding a certain revs cruising at one speed it seems to feel like its stuttering, so very slightly, no stuttering through boost, also is it me or do the 210bhp ones not feel overly fast standard? my brother has a 1.9 16v E36 BMW with 140bhp and he did put his foot down before me and i missed 3rd gear but he was almost keeping up...lol

    Water leak appears to have gone fingers crossed.

    Also previous owner said it has R32 front brakes can anyone tell from this pic....

    any logs ? they'd help to be honest, a 140 rwd shouldn't be able to keep up with an awd 210, specially at higher speed when weight counts less

    Anyone able to shed any light on the above issues?

    The misfiring has come back now, only on full throttle it starts misfiring or hesitating and also as mentioned it misses slightly when holding a steady revs....

    Coilpack is not to expensive, I think about £60-£80 last time I replaced one. If a boost leak then it could be free if its just a leaky pipe.

    If doing the coils you may as well get some tfsi ones for about £70 from awesomegti.

    The picture is not great, but they look like r32 brakes from this angle.

    Have a look at the coil pack wiring, just strip it back a bit and you may see gold...:)
