    RS3 Discussion Thread

    I don't get this - a fully loaded Golf R is £40k now so assuming there is some premium (say 10%) attached to a limited run RS3 you'll be looking at over £44k (probably nearer £47k to bring it in line with the TT-RS) and the VAT increase will make it more expensive than a fully loaded S3 "at the...

    Jonnys old S3?

    Yet you have plans for an aftermarket exhaust and an EVOMs CAI and have already fitted Weitec Hicon GTs. Bit hypocritical no ? No matter what you do to an A3 S-Line it will always be an A3 S-Line.

    RS3 Discussion Thread

    Bear in mind I didn't say it would be a cack car - only that there is a good chance it might be. Yeah I bought my S3 new three years ago for £29,000 and have spent maybe £4,000 on it to get to 360bhp and 359 lb/ft (if you believe a rolling road). A remapped 2.5 TFSI would get you to 410bhp...

    RS3 Discussion Thread

    Where does the presumption come from that the RS3 would be any good ? Why would anyone put a deposit down on a £40k+ car without test driving it ? The TT-RS was by no means universally well received - and was even panned by some reviewers - so why would people assume that dumping its engine in...

    Thoughts on Bose?

    Because I'm a dweeb I listen to lots of classical / opera in my car through BOSE and the sound is fantastic. Better than my more expensive and supposedly better system at home. It's pin sharp and the clarity on "airy" music with very little background noise to disguise distortions is brilliant...

    Bargain 3.2 sportback 2004 54 reg

    You're in the wrong place - should be in classified section. When I first read this I thought you were looking to buy one. I'm not surprised you've had no replies - wrong forum and very unclear content / thread title. Not having a pop - just trying to help.

    S3(8P2): Misfire cylinder 3, no engine code faults - idles like a pig

    Don't know enough to help you for sure Warren but I was told only to run one step cooler NGKs (7s) by a number of people who know their VAG tuning. I've not had any problems like this but then again neither had you until today so who knows .... ? I was warned that 2 step cooler plugs might cause...

    GIAC REMAP

    Paul Laird - I'm with you now. I don't know much about GIAC Extreme but ask dc240969 about it as he has been looking into this for ages I think. CJ3BLUE - The Hammer map has been around for at least 2 years - JamieKip, L6ON, JonnyC etc. were all running it back in 2007/8 so unless it's been...

    S3 Clutch Slip Poll

    AmD showed me the old clutch and the DMF. There were some pretty nasty score marks on the DMF from where the clutch had slipped but I got mine changed the moment it started slipping - no point delaying the inevitable - so they reckoned there could have been a few thousand miles in it before it...

    S3 Clutch Slip Poll

    Did my Sachs + OEM DMF upgrade in Feb 2009 and have done about 13,000 on it - including some savage sessions on track and on autobahns. No issues whatsoever.

    GIAC REMAP

    And you think that's bad in some way ? For stage 1 that's an almost unbelievable figure. Maximum I've seen on Stage 1 with no other hardware was about 325. Revo 2+ always gets between 360 and 370.

    3.2 vs s3

    Bit of a difference here mate. The first is a decent scalp for sure but the second ...... were you cycling or running ? Or hopping ? No real achievement otherwise as a 3.2 would eat it for breakfast - even Paddy's V4 A3 would beat one of these.

    3.2 vs s3

    My 3.2 (the one which was hadn't been made to look like an S3) had DSG and it was the main reason I couldn't wait to flog it. The dealer asked me if I wanted DSG on my S3 - I nearly nutted him. Manual if you like driving - DSG if you like getting from A to B in a car.

    I forgot about the aluminium air vent rings on the dash. Have you got a nicer ring than me too ?

    3.2 vs s3

    For some of these reasons but I'm sure there are many more I can't think of off the top of my head (I'm referring to MY two cars here - depends what you spec I suppose): - heated seats as standard - full leather as standard - flat bottomed multi-functional steering wheel as standard -...

    Just put deposit on this Orange S3 - please help with engine details?

    You won't be getting 385bhp out of it unless it has an aftermarket turbo on it that's for sure. That in itself would alert me to the risk of dealer bullsh1t. If it has the uprated fuel pump and an aftermarket intake system (popping the bonnet will tell you this clearly !) then with the other...
