    I upgraded with tarox pads and discs all round (as per sig), miles better than standard havent come across brake fade like the stock discs and pads. Also with brakes I believe the recommendation is 200/300 miles to bed in properly iirc.

    Is this the new updated pedal as I think mine is the old weaker one with the plastic part that has snapped.

    egt sensor location on '03 S3

    When booting it the other day WOT highish revs 4k+ in 4th gear+ felt like I'd hit a limiter or wheel spinning (but not doing either) until I caught the engine light flashing.

    Audi S3 ABS Control Module knackered

    Yes mine was that module, got the module and pump from a guy on ebay that was breaking an S3 for £100.
