    Breaks and pads

    I have a 1.4TFSI A3 and upgraded from 288mm to 312mm discs and pads from Brembo. They brake very good but they have a bit of brake dust. After 200km you can see dust on your rims. But overall very happy with Brembo and it's cheaper than ATE or Zimmerman

    S3 has gone super quiet

    Maybe the previous owner added a custom flap? Is the whole exhaust original?

    S3 has gone super quiet

    And in OBD11 you tried the "Exhaust Flap Deactivation" app? Setting should be on Active, when the flaps are open you can turn it off so they will always be open

    S3 has gone super quiet

    Correct me if i'm wrong but the flap only opens up above 3500 rpm or full throttle. Does is sound louder above 3500rpm?

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    If you use start/stop (in my eyes stop and start:blahblah1:) after driving on the motorway or driving with a heavy right foot it's not really good for the turbo. When driving only slowly in the city or letting the engine coast long it really does not hurt it.

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    If it was a fault clutch switch the engine would not turn on right? Or does your car not require to push the clutch in to start?

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    Maybe because the battery got disconnected for clutch replacement and the battery sensor reset itself?
