    DP: to cat or not?

    Thanks for that mate. Looks like I need a cat then! It's gonna be WAY loud, as I live in an apartment block with underground parking. I already set car alarms off as it is when I start my car!

    DP: to cat or not?

    I've taken out my secondary cats, and I like to make lots of loud pops and bangs all the time :) Cop must have been close. I got a letter in the mail to visit the EPA here in Australia (Environmental Protection Agency) to test my car. They can do that there if they wish. Had to go to EPA...

    DP: to cat or not?

    Any feedback all? Last thing I want is to get a notice in the mail for being too loud (which I have in the past haha) and then have to put the stock DP back on, which is a PITA!! Any feedback on how the decat does with: 1. Drone? 2. Loudness? Appreciate any info!

    Air intake/induction kit?!

    It's not needed on the RS3 guys. The air flow is fantastic already, even tuned stage 2. There is no need for a bigger intake. It will gain you next to nothing. That's why you don't see any air intake kits for sale for the RS3!

    Side Assist Fault

    Hmm. Mine are certainly not there. They're further towards the front/back of the car. Pretty much on the bumper! I'm guessing same thing though.

    Carbon fibre wheel?

    Ugh. To be honest man, for that price, I can buy the same wheel brand new from the US and keep my current wheel. Those shipping costs are a bit crazy. I bought an set of four Vossen wheels that were shipped to my door in three days for $100 AUD.

    [RS3/S3 8V] Howto/Installation instructions for valve control (AVC) (for DriveSelect)

    Anyone comment on how loud it gets with this? Does it start to drone at all if the valves are always open? I'm all for this if it sounds good. I don't want it to sound like a boy racer though!

    Side Assist Fault

    OK now I'm more confused haha. Are you supposed to be able to see the sensors? Like you can on the front and rear bumpers? Cause I can't see anything!! I also noticed that when I start the car up, for a few seconds, the lights on the passenger mirror light up for the side assist, but not on...

    Carbon fibre wheel?

    Hey mate. I have a 2016 RS3 8V. Shipping would be to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 2000

    Side Assist Fault

    I unfortunately didn't get a pic of the fault code. I've looked all over the car and can't seem to find the sensors for the side. Are they supposed to be little round circles cut into the side skirts or something? On the front bumper you can clearly see the sensors, but I can't tell where the...

    Carbon fibre wheel?

    I'll take this off your hands in a heartbeat if you don't mind shipping to Australia. I'll post mine to you as well.

    Side Assist Fault

    So took it to a mate who has VCDS. Scanned as "Unknown Error" in the side assist. Wicked haha. We took the mirror apart. All cables are plugged in. Resetting the error in VCDS does nothing. It keeps coming back up immediately. So no clue what's going on. Now I'm having to escalate this...

    Side Assist Fault

    Thanks mate. I'm gonna go check it out on Saturday at my mates shop. I'd come to you, but unfortunately, I'm in Sydney haha.

    Post Pics Of Your 8V RS3's In Here

    I am honestly really not a fan of the little recessed lip the sedan has on the wheel arches. I don't like them on the TT either!

    Side Assist Fault

    Hey all. Anyone else ever had a side assist fault error pop up on the dash? I just started getting one, and it won't go away! I've had ACC faults before, and they disappear after a few mins. But this isn't! I've looked all over and can't see any physical issues. Where are the sensors...

    How to install downpipe for Audi rs3 8v

    I'm all for a DP, but what's the point when there are next to no Stage 2 tunes available? You're really not getting any advantage or gain from a larger DP unless you reflash. Stage 1 tunes will not incorporate the added gains from a DP. In fact, I fear the car may run worse with a DP and no...

    REVO VS MTM

    As betaone68 said. Except that mine took 10 minutes, not 1.5 hours. The first time you drive the car after the ECU flash, you'll have pretty much every warning light on your dash light up haha. They'll reset themselves though after a couple mins of driving.

    REVO VS MTM

    I've been running Revo for about 9 months now. Not a single hiccup. I ran Revo on my S3 for 2 years (Stage 2) and not a single hiccup or issue. I'm not surprised Revo puts out more than MTM. One is a proper flash, the other is a piggyback box. I ran a DTUK on my S3 before switching to Revo...

    Maybe of interest to someone

    You won't find standalone tips only. Like it was mentioned, they're part of the exhaust, and are welded to the pipes. They don't come off. You'll need to replace the entire catback, or as Spack said, get them painted.

    RS3 Saloon or Sportback

    SB all the way. I wouldn't buy this car in a sedan form. If I wanted a sedan I'd step up to an S6 or S5 Sportback.
