    S3 cabriolet

    Have you lowered yours? I’ve got an S3 cab and have been thinking about lowering it for a while now. But there doesn’t seam to be any springs specifically for the cab and I would have thought they are carrying a bit more weight than the saloon.

    Facelift S3 cabriolet

    Had an S3 Cab from new for 3 1/2 years now and it hasn’t missed a beat. As midlife crisis purchases go, it was a good one and I’m keeping it.

    I think it is the skip on the roof, that is putting buyers off.

    Facelift MTM Cantronic Tuning Box Dyno Results

    MTM website quotes 360 and my S3 FL achieved 364 on QS’s rollers and 324 before!! That was on 97 ron, so could be a tad higher on 98. Can’t remember the torque, but you definitely know its fitted, it is a whole different beast.

    A3 / S3 CAB Wind Deflector any good ?

    Cheer I have been looking at those recently, it looks like the AUDI one folds down smaller (i.e. in half both ways), so need to balance that off against paying an additional 200/300 quid.

    A3 / S3 CAB Wind Deflector any good ?

    Facelift S3/A3 convertible

    I got the cab on the basis that it was usually just me in my old car and sometimes one other. If the whole family was going out we took the Mrs's SUV. Since I got it we all go out in the cab, so there are endless arguments on who has to go in the back and having to move the front seats forward
