hi guys, i have a question for a wheel guru. I think i already know the answer but just want confirmation really.
the vin plate on this car says
1- 1050 kg
2- 0960 kg
the wheels say max 570kg on the inside of the rim.
Im right in thinking 1 means front axle weight and 2 means rear...
had the light come on last night in the car and when i restarted it, it never came back on until this afternoon. I had it read with VCDS and it said
P0045 boost sensor bank 1 open circuit
Anyone had this fault? i pressume its a case of just changing the sensor at the dealers?
I know a few people have had these springs fitted and i have seen pics via google etc but i couldn't find anything to suggest the handling was improved over standard. I know the ride is unsettled when pressing on down bumpy country lanes etc but i was thinking of fitting one of the above springs...
just a quick question has anyone checked the ecu counter via vagcom/vcds just out of curiosity? I got this -
VCDS Version: Release 14.10.2 (x64)
Address 19: CAN Gateway
Programming Attempts(application): 1/1
when you are in drive(D) and you floor the accelerator past the kick down switch is the car supposed to change to sport(S) or does it stay in drive but just drop down. Is sport only engaged when selected through driving modes or knocking the gearstick backwards?
Mine stays in drive but I could...
hi guys, I helped a mate with his 2.0 tdi Q5 tonight as he had error code -
P2002 - particulate trap bank 1 - efficiency bellow threshold
just as a bit of background info he had the glow plugs replaced last week, so not sure if any sensors are around them that could cause it, wouldn't have...
i know the best ways alot of the time are the best but due to personal circumstances its alot easier for me to use an oil extractor to change the oil between services on my s3. Does anyone know if you can go through the dipstick straight to the sump? is there a baffle at all or...
I'm not trying to start a discussion about different tuners etc as we already have them. I am thinking about getting a tuning box and wanted to know from owners with tuned cars how long you have had the map/box on for and how many miles you have done so far and any issues if any?
I would be...
Ok so I have used some snow foam on my car using my karcher and the crappy bottle that comes with the jet washer. I think I have used too high of a concentration and it has stripped the top coating of the rubber seals around all the windows (3 door) they still look pretty normal except that you...
Could someone please photo shop gloss black wheels onto my s3 (please excuse the setting, only pic)
One of my wheels is curbed and Audi want £650 for a wheel and I have been told that to repair will take 3 days. People have said when it is repaired it isn't quite the same and I am...
I picked up my S3 a couple of weeks ago and pretty much since the beginning the AMI sometimes things the USB is not present and I have to pull the USB out and put it back in again and all is back to normal for about 5 days. I didn't haver any problems with the USB in my 8P and its only...
Hi guys, thinking of getting a milltek cat back only and just wanted to know if anyone had an idea if there would be any warranty issues?
I know with it being a cat back system its just the exhaust gas flowing through but with back pressure etc would they have grounds to reject anything?
i should be picking my s3 up hopefully this week or the start of next week. what did you get/ push for when you picked the car up?
i think this question may have been asked but i cant seem to find it through search.
Hi, my S3 is due to be built this week and I just wondered how long it takes to build one? I have heard it can take up to 5 weeks but just wanted to know of owners who tracked it all the way through how long it took?
I have read different reviews on both these cars and as we know they favour the gold like they always have done. I started thinking how much of an impact wheel alignment would make to the s3 in order to give it a bit of what the Golf R has?
I can only assume since the Audi is more for grown ups...
Revo have released stage 2 for the new s3 and I assume this is the limit of what you can get on the new engine without a turbo upgrade.
Alot of money for parts over stage 1 though for the gains in my opinion...
Ive been looking through the forum plus other sites and just wondered if anyone had added extra security to their car?
I know that the advanced key poses a security risk and I haven't ordered that so that one less worry. I also have a disklok which Ive used on my last 4 cars and will take out...
