    Slight jerky acceleration

    2010 S3 with 7k miles and GIAC remap since 1k. Not all the time but sometimes under load and flooring it, it accelerates fine but you can feel a slight 'hiccup' or similar feeling through pedal and car. Is this a recirc valve issue, fueling, or coil pack?. Car runs / idles fine. Any ideas?

    Help required - S3 Front Springs length

    Need the length of these springs. Maybe someone has a pair to hand after fitting H&R's ?. Trying to find an OEM route to lowering just the front a tad ( and yes i know about Eibachs ) but OEM will be stealth and cheaper too. Thanks.

    Got caught speeding in what I believed to be a 40 limit, unfortunately it was a 30 limit. 47 in a 30, does this represent a ban or am I likely to get points and a fine?. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Caught Speeding

    Yep, got the dreaded notice in today's post. 84mph in a 60mph limit. I know the stretch of road which is downhill and one of the few places to safely overtake. Can't remember seeing the white van though! Will this go to court or will I be offered a 'conditional offer' on this one?.
