I am not even going to pursue the Audi route. I was aware of the risks and just think I have been unfortunate to have broken a gearbox as there are many others running similar power and some running even more with Stage 3 on the standard gearbox.
I tried to extend the Audi warranty but it wasnt offered at the time of purchase and it had disappeared from their website when I looked at some point in March last yr.
Even with warranty I’m sure the mapping would void it anyway.
I had the dreaded news that my gearbox has failed and needs to be replaced. Car is out of warranty (2015 S3 - 40k miles) and has been modified to stage 2 with a TCU tune. Not sure if this contributed to it or not but I know that i will need to pay out a lot of money.
I think I am running standard plugs as I was told they were not essential. Should I change and if so what for?

I was out on Sunday and attempted to overtake a slow driver and all of a sudden lost power, car went into limp mode, EPC light came on and the car sounded a bit Subaru-esque.
I switched off, waited a few mins and then back on again... No EPC light... (phew). I started driving and it was fine...
