    it looks like the original turbo maybe on its way out after 122,000 miles which is a good stint i suppose. the problem is i dont no weather to go with a ko3 hybrid with other supporting mods including rods and all new engine seals or weather to get rid and move onto the s3 train? at the minute i have a 2001 a3 fwd aum at stage 2.

    would like to no what other people would do in my situation?
    thanks

    well how much have you spent on her so far ? do you really want to spend the money on a s3 plus all the mods you would inevitably do ? but if monies no object go s3. i would just cant afford to buy/run one.
