    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    Could be a limited edition Rolex custom gauge. It'd still look *****.

    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    I'd wager that 90% of owners who choose to install them, they serve no other purpose than: "Oi Baz, look at me new boost gauge" "oh its sick that"

    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    It's not that Im against car mods as such, its more you either go full on and go for a full track day car, rather than waste money on silly things that serve no real purpose than to impress your friends in McDonalds car park, when you could have arguably put that money towards something...

    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    It serves the same purpose, surely if one is useless then so is the other. And no offence I think but it looks more out of place than someone with self respect on the Jeremy Kyle show. Really need to watch the boost that much in a 1.8, or is it just like the standard S3 one, there for a bit of fun.

    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    How is sticking a boost gauge in your air vent not barry-tastic?

    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    Ah see, what im saying is that either way, it looks like a barryboys special.

    S3 Boost gauge ... why?

    Meh. Why not. At least its not like the ripspeed special pictured above. "when using lc, take your foot off the brake pedal when it all lights up" is about the only use :D

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Set the alarm for 6am. Planned to take her down for a blast about the peak district early doors. 6am comes and I promptly re-consider my choice. So I went and checked my tyre pressures, all four low by about 4 PSI. Could my Sunday be any more rock'n'roll?

    Quad pipes ... only for show?

    But only over 3000 rpm or something. Theres a thread about somehwere saying you can unplug the valve and all 4 will be used at all times. Im sure v8 will link it at some point.

    how many s3 seen?

    The law dictates that you must pull up beside this person and give them a proper old thrashing at the traffic light GP.

    1st Official 8V RS3 shots

    There was quite alot of vitriol, it almost sounds like borderline jealousy. If the S3 isnt quick then god knows how slow his disesal feels.

    S3 Rear Brake discs, strange wear

    I'll get out there and find somewhere to do some aggressive braking. See if that scrubs the rust off. I think my problem is that the rears hardly get applied, EPB starting at 30 I'm thinking.... Thanks for the info.

    S3 Rear Brake discs, strange wear

    Sounds like fun, do they lock up or does ABS still function?

    S3 Rear Brake discs, strange wear

    Steady on, it's not an Allegro :D Would pulling the parking brake up apply the rears or just smash on the fronts?

    S3 Rear Brake discs, strange wear

    I'll try and find a quiet road and brake down hard from 60->0 a few times if possible. See if that helps. Sorta seems as if the pad isnt making smooth contact with the disc. I dont know how much rear brake bias there is, which might make it more difficult.

    S3 Rear Brake discs, strange wear

    Nope, I've tried firm braking and that doesn't seem to scrub it off. Perhaps I need to take it out and brake harder...
