I want to give the S3 an oil change next week, I use Quantum Longlife.
Back when I had my last 1.8T I used to go to TPS but that no longer seems to be possible.
Am I mad going to a Audi dealer for oil and a filter? Can't find a genuine filter online I don't really like ordering from random...
Came out to my car at lunch, pressed the keyfob and the lights flashed but the doors didn't unlock, had to use the key in the door to open it up.
When I try and lock / unlock from inside the car using the fob I can hear a rumbling noise from the back - likely to be the pump?
Best course of...
Currently running a 3" system on my S3 that I am removing in favour of the original one.
I have the factory downpipe and cat and I am retaining the Miltek bacbox but I am missing the middle section.
Does anyone know if you can buy an off the shelf pipe without the silencer?
I have fitted a set of aero arms from a MK4 Golf but I have an issue in which the passenger wiper hangs over the windscreen seal?
The wiper blades aren't genuine Audi items (came with the arms) but I *believe* they are the correct size? Drivers side is 21" and passenger is 19".
Has anybody used an aftermarket power steering pipe?
Mine appears to have sprung a leak so i'm looking to replace asap.
I can see non genuine brand new items available. Is a piece of pipe work much better if it comes in a VAG group bag? :whistle2:
Just been reading about Android Torque and sounds like a handy tool.
Can anyone confirm that it will read and clear fault codes on the S3?
Do I need any specific ODB2 BT connector or will anyone from Amazon do the job?
Unless it has changed, back in 2018 when I had my previous S3, TPS stopped serving the general public.
Is there any online alternatives to visiting the dealer? Never been an enjoyable experience trying to explain to the parts chap what I need and why I am keeping a 20 year old Audi on the...
Hoping someone can assist with a couple of head unit issues I am having, head unit is a single din Audi Concert in a 2001 Facelift S3.
Previous owner had fitted an after market double din, when I got the car, the only fault seemed to be that I had no radio reception, I pulled the HU out...
In another moment of madness I decided I wanted another S3 and so I went ahead and sold my Focus ST and bought another 8L S3, looked about and was surprised with the prices, seemed to be cheap money pits or pretty expensive sorted examples, hopefully in learning lessons from the past I decided...
Following on my temperature issues thread, I checked my fans out last night..
The fan to the right (cambelt side) was spinning no problem however the fan on the gearbox side was dead, had the aircon running and nothing was happening - which is which? Should they both be spinning up?
Noticed a strange issue on my car on the drive home from work yesterday.
Temp gauge on the dash is rising to 100 when i'm doing a steady drive, once I slow down it drops back to 90.
Looking at C49 on the climate control, it's running around 112 - 118.
Checked the obvious things, all coolant...
Both my xenons have had the motors removed at some point and the little clip that the ball goes in to have snapped :(
Is it possible to buy these new? Can they be fitted without stripping down the headlights?
Is it easy enough to remove the face of the cupholder? Mechanism on mine is broken but the face is fine and I've been given a fully working mechanism but it has no face.
