    Sachs clutch... seems cheap?

    Yep it's an S3 and I thought that seemed too good to be true! I'll check both of those places out. I'm just looking to replace the clutch at the moment, unsure on the flywheel. If I do then I'll probably go for the LUK one as I won't be chasing performance beyond what I already have so no need...

    Sachs clutch... seems cheap?

    Hi I've been doing some googling to find the best (read cheapest) place for a Sachs organic clutch for my S3 to replace the standard one that is currently slipping (car is mapped), and came across this...

    RNS-E and iPhone 5/iPod Touch 5th gen

    Thanks batch, that's just the answer I was looking for. I'll go for the adaptor. That's what I meant in my second question, wanted to check that no functionality was lost with these before I bought one!

    RNS-E and iPhone 5/iPod Touch 5th gen

    Apologies if this has been asked already but a search didn't yield any results for me. I'm looking to get a new iPod to plug into my AMI (MY11 car). The current connector in the glove box is for iPhones/iPods with the old 30 pin ports. I know there was a lot of discussion around whether or...

    Just had Revo Stage 1 Remap on my S3

    When you say B/T/F do you mean boost/timing/fuelling? Bit of a noob sorry :laugh: I put it down to me expecting a huge difference from stock based on what I had read, rather than a real problem. Maybe I was given the linear map, I'll check, but most likely I won't have noticed a subtle change...

    Audi MOT Protection

    Yeah I'm pretty sure you have to be militant about having your car serviced at audi and at the correct intervals. But if you have done this then it's a bit of a no brainer surely?

    Struggling to find a Itg cai??

    Do the APR/VWR kits fit under the standard engine cover?

    Just had Revo Stage 1 Remap on my S3

    I've been pretty underwhelmed with my Revo Stage 1 map, the print out showed 320bhp but it doesn't feel any different to standard. MY11 so presumably with Rev D valve. There aren't any issues with the car, almost six months on and I'm still waiting for some spare time when I can pop back to AMD...

    Remap vs. Warranty

    Haha, for once that is a good thing! :laugh:

    Remap vs. Warranty

    I am pleased to report back that it was worth it! The car feels smoother now and although I haven't had much of an opportunity to hoon around due to weather, it is different. The biggest difference to me is at higher speed, particularly when I drop to 4th on the motorway, 3rd is also better and...

    Remap vs. Warranty

    Cheers guys, I'll just stick with it then and be anal about the maintenance. At a guess I expect it will only work out at £200-250 a year if I change the oil and plugs every 4 months on average, which is about the cost of a night in a posh hotel. So less hotels, more oil. Thanks :)

    Remap vs. Warranty

    Ah ok, I will have to set reminders on my phone then :laugh: Yeah I've seen a lot written about the PCV system, would a catch can reduce the oil change frequency?

    Remap vs. Warranty

    Cheers Ads, I would been surprised about a blow up from Stage 1 too! Yeah it's a manual so I expect the clutch will go early, but to me that sounds like a good chance to upgrade to a Sachs one haha.
