    Life after RS3

    I'm not so sure. No details as I now realise the rarity of these cars and how much they can be tracked via the net. I sold the first car easily and I'd like this one to go the same way. I'm happy to answer GTR vs RS3 though there isn't really much to say. In my hands on my best 2ish mile lap...

    Life after RS3

    Hi Neil, thanks, sure did once the new garage door was fitted, which I'm glad I did because it's a big beast, I'm already on my second one because the market has been heading upwards which is a rarity for cars. That said I'm not driving around in it everyday, I'm using my generic VAG DSG...

    Life after RS3

    Hello again all, it's been about 8 months since I sold the RS3 so I thought I'd do a little write up on life after the RS3. I'm not going to bang on about the abilities or attributes of other cars here, that would probably just cause a negative response on a single brand site, but I might...

    CARDAN SHAFT (propshaft) BOLT FAILURE

    Hello chaps, it's been a while. I think it's worth remembering our bias for listening to the unusual story, more people will be talking about a failure than a car with no problems. I launched my RS3 before and after remap many times on Conti and wide, sticky MPSS tyres. It was the RS3 party...

    Audi S3 - 0-60mph =3.77, 0-100mph = 8.92

    These are impressive numbers for the S3. My previous RS3 ran consistent 4.2 0-60 (standard) and when mapped these were the best figures (but these figures are on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres which offered much greater traction), my Vbox confirmed the same figures, the average over 10 runs...

    Brake squeal on revised version

    Fair point on the second thread John and: the Pagid RS4-2 'blue' didn't squeal on road or track. To be clear about one downside they don't like working on discs that have a lot of surface 'rust' if left out in the wet, took a few heavy applications to clear that. Oh and they produce a thick...

    Brake squeal on revised version

    I agree about the DS2500 (good on similar weight Evo's and Scooby's) and the Pagid RS4-2 'Blue' are also worth considering. These worked perfectly for me on the RS3 both for road and track and didn't cause much disc wear either. As you've already said forget EBC Redstuff for any track work...

    Brake squeal on revised version

    The power of branding over actual performance I fear.

    Yep Forza 5 looks good these days doesn't it, they've upgraded the video quality for Upload Studio so you can actually get HD quality footage to YouTube.

    S3 Saloon now in Forza 5

    I thought a few of you might like to know the latest S3 is now available in Forza 5. A newly laser mapped and inch perfect Nurburgring was also added in a recent update so there is a lot more playability to the game these days. I'm going to see what 'ring lap time I can extract from the S3 and...

    Brake squeal on revised version

    Just as worrying that Audi/VW group are well aware of this problem but now happily fitting this very same system to Golf GTi PP and Seat Leon Cupra 'Nurbrurgring pack' equipped cars...I wonder if that is where all our old sets are ending up? Despite what they say this is no track disc/pad set...

    This is as funny as it gets...

    Not directly RS3 related but I'm sure you chaps will forgive me as Audi won once again at Le Mans: BMW wins Le Mans! « Sniff Petrol The ultimate furious pleasuring machine....! Nothing more to add.

    Michelin Pilot Super Sports or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 - Thoughts?

    John, you will love the MPSS an engineering masterpiece, how they make the outer edge so durable and the wear across the tyre so consistent is beyond my comprehension. I only wish I was on commission from Michelin all the good words I've written about them. Just take a look at how the motoring...

    Golf R, auto express test

    Fair point, I think he said as much in the review - Golf for the road, SEAT for the track, I quite like the track (see my YouTube) so for me the SEAT, Golf R or S3 for pure road use sure. I'm not in the market for either but I think they both look lovely cars for the money.

    Golf R, auto express test

    Back on topic (not quite sure what the last few posts were about..) have you seen this video chaps? That is quite a victory for the Leon Cupra, it would certainly be my choice based on that. Add a set of Michelin Pilot Cup tyres and upgrade the brakes and you'd have quite an accomplished...

    Michelin Pilot Super Sports or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 - Thoughts?

    Every tyre change resulted in the same head scratching by the tyre fitters "you want the wider tyres on the front?" whilst they looked at me like some swivelled eyed loon "but on the M3 they wider tyres are on the rear", I did try to explain that is a RWD car. Explaining front biased quattro to...

    Golf R, auto express test

    The Golf R and the RSQ3 both came out of that test looking very good, both managed the 0-60 sprint in 4.5s, the A45 AMG took 4.6. 4.5s with 300bhp is highly impressive, S-tronic makes a huge difference. In terms of track times the Cupra 280 (ok lightened with bigger wheels, MP cup tyres) was...

    Newbie

    Welcome & might I say a particularly great choice. The RS3 section are a good bunch! You should find plenty of relevant and correct information on here. In my opinion the friendliest and most helpful car forum on the web. Although I no longer reside here I pop in from time to time.
