    S1 Coil Spring Guide

    Hi!! Just wondering if we have access to any diy guides for changing coil springs? I’ve recently bought some H&R springs and was looking to do myself. I’ve never done a spring swap on a Quattro so a guide or tips would be greatly appreciated!

    S3 spark plugs

    2015 S3 (8V) can anybody recommend a good sparkplug with part number? I haven't tried the stealer yet as I was thinking NGK Iridium and looked at BKR7EIX but I was told they wouldn't work with my engine?

    Facelift 2017 S3 FL exhaust flap open mod.

    Are you going for a bcs pipe or just a straight thru? Also is there much difference in noise (5-10-15% louder?) with the flaps permanently open?

    Facelift 2017 S3 FL exhaust flap open mod.

    I’m trying to slide a bcs res delete under the radar so might leave the removal of the sound box at the same time! Incase I get rumbled!

    Facelift 2017 S3 FL exhaust flap open mod.

    Not exactly. Even in Dynamic the flaps are still closed sometimes. It's only during startup, idle, launch control and rpm above 3.000 the flaps are open in Dynamic. ahhh.... I see! We'v only had the car a short while so I'm catching up with whats-what! So it would be fair to say the majority...

    Facelift 2017 S3 FL exhaust flap open mod.

    Can you not just use the individual setting in drive select? You could set everything to comfort but have the 'Engine Sound' as Dynamic. Forgive me if im wrong but wont that achieve the same thing without coding or disconnecting the flaps altogether?

    How much boost can a G diverter hold?

    As the title suggests, I was wondering if anybody knows how much boost (psi) a New G revision diverter valve can hold? I've upgraded from D to G on my A1 1.4TFSI after a remap which also proved too much for my stock actuator... Now running forge with yellow spring (15psi). Between 2,5-3k rpm...

    New A3 S-Line Turbo Charger Linkage Fault at startup

    I have an A1 with the same 1.4tfsi engine (caxa). Almost immediately after having it remapped I started to hear this rattle and then started to have big stuttering between 2-3k rpm. My tuner came across this linkage issue on a golf forum (again same engine code). The noise can only be replicated...

    Boost loss underload- help!

    So your thinking is something like overboost caused by less than ideal settings(boost/torque limits) over something like a boost leak or coil pack starting to fail?

    The A3 has a new brother!

    Excellent mate you'll never get tired of it! I waited 7 years to get one and only had mine for 8months but loved every minute of it! Fairly quick beneath 6,000rpm but hitting that V-TEC all the way to 9,000rpm is something special. I sooo wish i could get another.... after owning one nothing...
