    sport exhaust vs non sport

    I had the sports exhaust on my PFL and now have the standard exhaust on my FL. Sports exhaust on the PFL much noticeably louder especially with the pops and bangs, standard exhaust is just quieter and less raw but suits me fine as I found the sports a bit too much after while.

I noticed 3 RS3 exhausts sitting there outside looking a bit sorry...

    Exhaust rattle warranty claim

    RS3 (PFL) vs RS3 (FL)

    My valves also jammed open on my PFL (sports exhaust) now and then. It was a total pain and very noisy. Ended up not speccing the sports exhaust on my FL and think it sounds great. I couldn't drive around with the valves constantly open on my PFL, would just do my head in.

    2016 RS3 non-starter/"do not exceed 4000rpm"

    What age is your car? This problem seems to be with RS3's all around the same age.

    Removing Number plates

    Yeah. I you're taking off the plate, also use dental floss. Very good for taking it off without damaging or scratching anything

    Removing Number plates

    Tar remover or glue remover and microfibre cloth. Heating up the adhesive with a hair dryer to soften helps too.
