    My S3 Started making a rattling sound on idle
    then when in traffic the temperature went
    right up to 100/120.
    any ideas?

    Yeh it's very common, get all the work done that is stated above. Mine went at 92k after the water pump was not replaced by the last owner when the cam belt was done at 60k.
