    Alright chaps my s3 seams to struggle to start :/ its hard to explain but it's not a straight turn over and startup. I've changed the plugs but made no difference ... Possible battery ? The car runs amazing and drives suburb once started ??

    Get him scanned first, then start changing coils one at a time and see which cures it.

    A dodgy PCV valve can sometimes dog the 2.0TFSI with poor starting and lumpy cold running. I have a group buy on ATM for the new Revo PCV revamp kit.

    Water/engine temperature stat is a likely cause of this.
