    My S3 :(

    Well I never really got time to post pictures up, but I'll be parting with my S3 soon. I honestly can't criticise the car. I came from a 1.4TFSI A3 and I've loved every minute of it. The power, handling and even the mpg wasn't as bad as people make it out to be! As it's being sold I managed to...

    Audi S3 major service, prices?

    Got the service coming up soon. Best price I've got is £509. This will include brake fluid and haldex oil change. Is this a reasonable price or is there something better out there? Also they said I will need the spark plugs changing, in the service book it says this should be done at 57,000...

    Approved used, service question?

    I bought my S3 about a month ago, when I bought it I didn't notice that the major service was due within 3000 miles. I've done about 1500 miles and now the service is a 1000 miles away. Should the dealers have done the service? Does anyone know what the policy is on this? Thanks

    Hi, does anybody know the best place to get a full 4 wheel alignment in West Yorkshire? The steering feels a bit indirect and it's slightly off to the right. Is it worth getting the geometry checked as well?

    Water/coolant temperature problem

    My 2008 S3 water temp seems to drop every now and then after it has hit 90 degrees. Even after a long 1 hour drive on the motorway the temperatue just slightly drops and then slowly goes back up. I've put it on a VCDS and there aren't any sensor faults. Any ideas? Thanks

    Buying an S3

    Hopefully within the next 2-3 weeks. I'm going for the 8P3 model, 3 door and possibly sprint blue. Is this one of the best colours to go for? What should I be looking out for when I check it out?

    I've bought a T reg golf and looking to get it sprayed. It's a very funny green colour and has a few rust patches, I'll be keeping it as a second car so thought might as well! Does anyone have any ideas as to how much I'll be paying? Not looking for the best of jobs as it is an old car.

    Remap 1.4 T

    Has anybody remapped their 1.4 T? The gains seem to be good but obviously I'm concerned that 140 BHP may be too much for a 1.4. Also I still have the Audi warranty so will they find out if something goes wrong with the car for example? Thanks
