    Saloon Rear window regulator help

    Hi. So half an hour ago my rear regulator on my 2015 s3 saloon decided to snap, while the window was down. It is completely jammed shut. I’ve removed the door cards and I’m currently trying to figure out how to remover the regulator from the glass. It looks like 2 plastic tubes running through...

    Coolant leak on freezing days

    Hi. 2015 s3 here. A couple of months back on a very cold morning I drove to work and got a coolant level warning light on the dash. I topped it up and went on my way and a couple of days later it happened again so I decided to put the car on axle stands And get under the car to see if I could...

    S3 eibach creaking

    Well I’m no pro I assure you, however with the symptoms you describe, you should bring it to a pro as it could be anything causing it. reminds me of the time on my S3 8l where I had a knocking noise up front. I replaced: The cv joints, the drop links, the ball joints, the arb bushes and it...

    S3 eibach creaking

    Yeah it’s pretty straight forward. Just make sure you have spring compressors. The 3 bolts that go in to the top mount have a tendency to rust and seize too so I would advise to replace top mounts and bearings while you are at it and make sure you have spare bolts too as they don’t come with the...

    S3 eibach creaking

    Poor chap! ANYWAY, I jacked the car up today for a look. The spring is nicely seated. Halfway up the spring there is a plastic sleeve on the coil. I slid it down the coil as far as I could until it was between the 1st and second coil of that makes sense. All creaking/binding/clunking noises are...

    S3 eibach creaking

    99% of the cars on these forums have aftermarket parts. When my car needs something I always buy from Audi however they don’t offer a lowering spring for the s3.. wait a minute, why am I even replying

    S3 eibach creaking

    Hi. i installed eibach pro springs on my 2015 s3 saloon and ever since I am getting some creaking/twanging noises from the front right when I turn the steering wheel while stationary or crawling. I replaced the top mounts with genuine items too to rule that out but it didn’t fix it. It must be...

    Magride alternatives

    Thanks for the advice. Have you ever had Magride? As for devaluing the car I couldn’t care less. I would just keep the magride and throw it back in if I sell the car. I just came across your write up as it happens. I already have eibach pro springs so I think I will give the Koni special actives...

    Magride alternatives

    Hi.I have a 2015 s3 saloon and I find the magride to be the worst suspension I’ve ever experienced. In particular, while driving over small bumps, speed bumps etc or driving off small kerbs especially when not straight on. Sometimes it is so harsh that I’m sure my head had almost hit the ceiling...

    Creation Motorsport (manual) Clutch Bleed Block with Damper Delete

    I’m wondering if we have what each other want in a clutch…. Mine is pretty much instant engagement/disengagement and I want to smooth it out a bit. When I let the pedal out, it disengages too fast and jerks. I have to feather clutch to get a smooth gear change. Most of the time I drive with my...

    Rear puddle light Coding help

    Hi. I installed puddle & warning lights in my 2015 s3 a while ago. I coded the front doors but never got round to doing the rears so I had a go tonight. However VCDS won’t let me do anything with the long coding on the rear doors. I am getting this message: Can anyone tell me what do I need to...

    Creation Motorsport (manual) Clutch Bleed Block with Damper Delete

    I have the same hatred towards mine believe me. I have removed the little damper and I have also fitted a clutch stop to eliminate some of the excessive pedal movement but it’s still awful. My s3 8p clutch was perfect: to be honest, this is the only car I’ve ever had this issue with. I can’t...

    Creation Motorsport (manual) Clutch Bleed Block with Damper Delete

    Can you describe your clutch engagement? I hate the gear change from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd in my manual s3, it’s as if I have to feather the clutch to get a smooth gear change otherwise it jerks as if my foot slipped off the clutch pedal or something

    Traction problems

    Hi. I thought I would just follow up with this. A little while ago I had my haldex pump replaced by Audi. It didn’t make any difference and I was very much annoyed. I thought I’d have to start looking for a new haldex/diff etc. Anyway, long story short, I did a haldex calibration/re-learn with...

    New Suspension?

    I had a look alright and found a TPI. I passed it on to my Missus who works for Audi and she said they didn’t have the TPI listed. Does anyone know the revised top mount number even?

    New Suspension?

    I’ve wondered about this myself. I have magride and if I slowly drive off say a 3” kerb or the likes, there is an embarrassing THUNK.

    Facelift Brake Discs and Pads

    I’m about to fire on this myself. A quick question though? What front pads would everyone recommend that don’t create a ridiculous amount of brake dust. My current setup is extremely dusty!
