    So the heatwave has done wierd things. Pushed the cupholder in and then it jammed, would not come back out, thought it was broken untill yesturday when it randomly popped out and started working again.

    Then had both windows down and now the switch (and the auto up on lock) doesnt work, so I have to keep it off the road. No idea if a fuse is gone or if it will randomly work again like the cupholder!

    Hahahaha love this especially how it was written! Taking my #babygirl for a 300 mile trip from Cambridge to Abersoch in Wales today, hoping it's not as muddy as last year!

    She's been de-chromed now too so at least the mud wont show as easily ha :ninja:

    It seemed fine - no issues what so ever and the car boosted no problem and felt brilliant!

    Went for a night blast in a 1000cc bike engined Suzuki Kit-car the other day (sequential box)

    Flames on over run, constant banging and popping, wheel spinning with ease in 3rd gear.

    My ears were still ringing the next day.

    CRAZY LOUD, It could be heard 10 miles away according to friends of mine.

    I want one.

    rounded off the thread of one of the pipes that go into my fuel pump while tightening it back in after cam follower change.

    Safe to say when i turned the ignition, petrol went everywhere. Clearly wasn't tight enough, and now waiting for a new one from local audi.

    Had a single mass flywheel and turned my s3 into a cement mixer as @S3Alex says. Mrs is pissed off and is asking why I paid to have my car sound broken.

    Maybe mine needs to bed in but damn that sound when deaccelerating in gear.
