    9J TTS wheels on Audi s3

    9J TTS wheels on Audi s3

    For what it's worth, I managed to squeeze a set of 245s onto my 8P in January this year. Tight but no rubbing anywhere at all. Cannot be certain this will work for an S3.

    3.2 gearbox oil change

    Hi MattTi Your symptoms and your uncertainties sound very like my own. Very difficult to explain to a garage. Bearable but not pleasant. Makes you almost frightened to drive the thing. Have you read this thread:... http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/index.php?threads/Advice-re-3%2E2-QS-DSG.122319/...

    Advice re 3.2 QS DSG

    Many thanks to all those contributing to this thread. After four visits to two garages, I googled the phrase "Audi A3 3.2 hesitation" and this thread popped up. It describes our symptoms perfectly: - Hesitation under light/modest acceleration. - Feels like misfire but isn't. - Still...
