    Do you believe it was purley the extra powers fault or something else that may have failed causing it.. oil pickup, jet, overheating ? were you giving it the beans?

    "best s3 in the country"

    I used the word "Chavvy" because the only cars I see with deep dish alloys like that are the old golfs and corrado's etc, and its easy to see the connection between those and a typical 19 year old boy racer in his Stereo on wheels. Basically I don’t like it and i was trying to word it...

    Rear washer pipe

    Also a common place for it to leak is just up from the battery housing there is a right angled plastic cover which bends from the front facing backwards. There is a hose connection inside that :) Gaz

    Increasing longitivity(Engine rebuild)

    Very bold statement, I think its more of a case of dammed unlucky! Rather than the 1.8T not handling +30 Ponies.

    Increasing longitivity(Engine rebuild)

    Untimatly its your choice bud, posting something like this you are bound to get all sorts of opinions, The majority of which I can tell have sumed it up with, "if its not broken dont fix it" :) I reckon if you push 200k etc or + other things are more likely to go wrong... drive train, Gear box...

    What audi to get ?

    I agree with the guys here, Every woman and her ridiculously small dog has a TT :) They are the same underneath so go for the extras on top… S3 has more room and will me less of a drama getting in and out of in small car park spaces :) Plus they seem far more prestigious !
