Well after a long break from these forums I am back after purchasing a 2003 Audi S3 at the weekend.
It is a former forum car and has a few choice mods including Bilstein suspension, neuspeed ARB's, B5 front brake upgrade, Milltek, CC remap, AndyMac stealth sub.
Looking at the RNS-E upgrade as...
Cheers Andy. Your description confirms my thought that the thermostat is stuck open. Looking in the service history the car only had a thermostat about 12 months ago. Is it worth getting a genuine thermostat from the dealer? Also how difficult a job is the thermostat to change?

well got the oil changed today. Picked up some Quantum Platinum 5W40 from the local VW stealers as the Audi stealer doesnt stock it! Glad I changed the oil immediately as it looked well overdue and they had used a Motorquip filter. The OEM filter was about twice the size. Anyhow pressure came...

Will get some pictures up and the full spec when I get a chance. I can't believe it was 8 years ago I joined this site...
I have just bought a 1.8TQS with 145k on the clock. What oil should I be using a fully synthetic or semi synthetic? I used to use Synta silver on my old 1.8T AEB just wanted to check to see if that was still the best bet.
