    Bye bye S3

    Well, I managed to sell the S3 the other day, and I've now picked up a 54 plate Mazda RX-8 231. I was actually a bit sad watching it drive off down the road even though I know I've been very critical of it, because it has been utterly dependable for the 18 months I owned it, and it was always my...

    How much is my car worth? ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz

    Sorry for another one of these threads folks, but it's been at least a week since one was started... Right, my car's a Noggy Blue 2001 facelift with 113k on the clock, Bose, heated seats, etc. FSH. I've put it up for £5,975, is this a reasonable price? Car's in good condition overall, just been...

    Accessing the exhaust manifold area

    As title, does anyone have any experience of this? Mine's blowing, and I'm going to check it out in the morning. I'm imagining it's a massive pain in the **** to get to. I think one of the gasket's have gone and will need replacing. I'm looking squarely at Welly and tuffty here, they're good at...

    Steering rack

    Quick question guys: my S3 steering rack is leaking near the driver side boot/gaiter so it obviously needs replacing. My question is, what would be the part number for a 2001 AMK facelift? I've heard so much conflicting information. Also is the steering rack the same as the one in the 225 TT or...

    ****** springs!

    Car had an MOT today and the tester told me that the rear passenger side coil spring was hanging on for dear life and would need replacing. Audi want over £60 for a spring, my question is does anyone have a rear spring lying around? I will gladly offer payment via PayPal for one in decent...

    Sounds like a Massey Ferguson

    Since a few days ago my car has been making a rattling/ticking noise when I rev the engine a bit. I know it's not the normal charcoal cannister thingy and instantly knew it was exhaust related. I took it to a 'mechanic' today and he refused to work on it saying it was a pig of a job as the...

    People who can't/refuse to use legible English and grammar.

    I spend quite a lot of my spare time on various VAG forums and I've been noticing a lot of people simply cannot write in English. A lot of posts seem to be littered with txt speak, little or no grammar and various slang from different parts of the country. What's with that? I'm sure most people...

    Brake light won't go off

    My facelift S3 has the problem of leaving brake lights on, even when no one is near the brake pedal. If I switch the car off, the lights (including third brake) will stay on, not only is this annoying but it is also killing my battery. I can pump the brake pedal a few times and move the car a...

    Removal of D2S S3 xenon bulb

    As title, how the ****** hell do you get the standard D2S fitment xenon bulb out of a facelift S3? I'm doing the passenger side first and I've removed the battery for more space but the damn thing won't budge. Quick responses required please as it's getting dark!

    My S3 - First thoughts

    Having just bought my S3 (the handling is woeful and the ride crashy) I'm looking to do a few exterior mods before concentrating on sorting out the way it drives (how it left the factory in that state I'll never know). I'm blacking out the grille and the headlights, and I'm looking to match the...

    Worst A3 I've ever seen.

    This thing is truly horrific, he has ruined a perfectly good car. The cheeky twat also wants £11,000 for it. I've a good mind to phone him up and give him a bollocking, I'm all for individuality but there has to be a point where you think "How can I even think this will look good?". Discretion...

    Looking for a K03s turbo.

    It appears as though my turbo seals are shot, and I will need a new turbo. I understand that the 190bhp 1.8T has the K03s, can anyone confirm this? I've been looking for a K03s and I can't find any, will the K03s from the A3's fit the A4's? Anyone here upgraded the turbo on their 1.8T's?

    What MPG do you get from your 1.8T?

    I know, I know, ANOTHER topic about fuel economy, but please bare with me. Mine has been a heavy drinker since I bought it (as is my Golf). I put in exactly 20 litres of BP 99 Octane fuel the other day, and I've drove 80 miles and the light has just come on again. I do short journeys mostly...

    Look what I've just bought...

    After much thought and sleepless nights (I'm not joking :wacko:) I managed to decide on a set of alloys for my A4. At the moment I've got the standard 16" jobbies, which pleasant as they are, are not exactly nice to look at. I was racking my brains on whether to get 18" or 19". I finally...

    Common problems?

    Hey guys, I'm going to see a 2001 Audi A4 1.8T with 90k on the clock this coming week and I was wondering what problems I should look out for? Having had the same engine in my current Golf, I'm fairly clued up as to how it works and that coilpacks fail. But in the A4 I understand that fuel...

    Which A4?

    Hi guys I'm currently driving a MK4 Golf GTI and I've had enough of its niggly faults, such as plastic window clips breaking, excessive petrol drinking and various knocks/rattles to name a few. I'm looking at getting an A4 1.8T, but I'm confused as to which one I should go for. I really want...
