    just hot weather or something serious???

    Hello, this happened to me recently... Both rad fans were not working so check them first. My waterpump gave way after a trip in the heat with no fans. Cost me some money and I have definately learnt from it. My guess is that your waterpump will start leaking soon. Basically, stop driving the...

    That S3 looks decent. I have no experience but that MUST ride very solid with those tyres and barely any suspension travel... so what you are saying by running them is that you would prefer to look good rather than be comfortable?!?! But the car is yellow so you obviously aren't bothered about...

    Radiator fans

    No the fans don't kick in at all I just found out. They are being replaced as soon as I get round to it... I suspect head gasket too but we'll see.

    What annoys me is that for the price I paid for the car plus this work I could of had an S3... seriously.

    Radiator fans

    The fans don't spin... ie no cooling. I think I've just been lucky as I haven't driven any big distance in it yet. And yes the car did overheat in the heatwave we had in June when I wasn't driving. The penny has just dropped... I assume the waterpump gasket went as I have had no fans for the...

    Radiator fans

    Thanks Ash. Well I just got a call to say they tested the fans by connecting them directly and both didn't work, so I'm going to get the car back and look myself. To be honest I imagine the fans really have failed as this garage is good to me. I just wasn't happy with £270 for both as I have...

    Radiator fans

    Just thought I'd do abit of moaning... The waterpump failed on my Turbo, it has been replaced at the garage and he has just told me the fans are not kicking in. After hooking up a live feed the fans still didn't work so they both need replacing. £140 for the large and £130 for the small and...

    Yes they are some random 15's, wasn't aware the Turbo Sport came with 16's though, I literally know nothing about this Audi lark. And don't be worrying about my wheels anyway, you ain't gotta drive it! Aero wipers is a cool mod if ever I heard one. Do they wipe dead flys away or smudge them?! I...

    Yeah tell me about it Tom... but I've only just got the car. You should see the height of the tyre wall!!! But anyway... you can't comment, those RS4 double spoke things looks absolutely gash :puke2:Explain your choice!!

    Yeah I'm pretty sure Emery was talking drivel ;-) I am interested in where you got your dv and cone for £140?!?! Hard to argue at that price!! Oh yeah I totally forgot to ask this, but assume it's no good.... the Haynes Manual for the A3... ANY GOOD?!

    See I proven my newbie-ness then... I didn't know there was a 180bhp FWD model! Is it just called the Anniversary model then... I will go and research that now! Sorry about that Emery!! You are 18?! Born in 1990!!! That's mad and makes me feel OLD!! I had been told a recirculating valve is what...

    I'm a new boy...

    Yeah everyone that has been in it says there is no lag at all! And its not a Quattro!!! I would of mentioned that!! It's the 150bhp FWD. Getting a Quattro is like admitting you can't afford an S3! I live close to work so this is just a toy! I couldn't justify an S3 as a toy! And there are plenty...

    Hello people... My name is James Shepherd or Shep, I'm 24 and after years ******* about with french TAT (306 GTi6 and 205GTi) I have bought my first German car! It's a black 2003 Audi turbo and I'm ****** loving it at the moment. Few points to make... 1. I've never had a turbo car before...
