    Engine (coolant) temperature dipping below 90 with AC on?

    Thats cool mate. Thanks. I'm thinking about doing the timing belt too at the same time plus clean the valves and might as well change the coil packs and fuel filter. Would u know of a place in the UK where I can purchase the parts from? I live in Aus and here they charge us like wounded bull for...

    Engine (coolant) temperature dipping below 90 with AC on?

    I noticed today that's its doing it even with AC off. Basically if I cruise for a while then it dips below 90 and comes back to 90 when in traffic or short distances between lights. When ac on the fans kick in and they turn off when in ECO mode of off. So if anything it might be the thermostat...

    Remapping help!

    Stick to stock DV. I'm actually running the oem rubber diaphragm one and still going strong. I got a rev d sitting around but it causes a back fire so prefer the original.

    Can Standard Brakes Handle Revo Stage 2+ ?

    Got APR2+ and I'd also say no. The single piston fronts can't cope too well with increased power. Running ATE PREMIUM ONE FRONTS and ATE stock rears with Zimmermann pads all round. Ok for the first 5 min of twisties then a bit too soft.

    Engine (coolant) temperature dipping below 90 with AC on?

    Hi guys, another thing I noticed today on the S3 8P. I was cruising home this eve at 80 kph with AC set at 21 deg with outside being 26 and noticed that the temp gauge was reading slightly below 90. It went back to 90 as soon as I stopped at a traffic light then did the same after I took off. I...

    Ignition switch replacement DIY?

    Immo coil? Not sure what that is. From doing some reading and checking parts it seems I need to replace the puck that sits behind the ignition key. So it's not the ignition barrel but the bit that receives the signal. Here is a link to that part. Am I correct? Home Page > Search > 1K0905865A -...

    Ignition switch replacement DIY?

    Hi guys So pretty sure my ignition switch is playing up. Nothing serious but thinking about having a go at it myself. Any DIY around for an A3 8P? Tried the search and the net but no luck. I understand its pretty common so hoping someone can direct me to one. Much appreciated.

    Strange Ignition Off Behaviour. Please have a look at my VCDS Fault List

    Thanks guys. Heard the same from another oz Audi member. I recall seeing that on the fault code prior to myself clearing them. Would this be the part no I need: 1K0905865A? Any DIY? I did a search but found one for the 8L but not the 8P?
