    Interior S3 8L (Door Cards Leather Pulling Off)

    Looks good @spiker Did you do this without removing anything? Just applied to the foam left on the back of the leather and door card? Mine are coming away just at the top and look fine when I work them back into place. I was hoping something like this would save me a lot of time/work.

    Symphony 2 battery drain (possibly) - help needed

    Thanks @tcg Nothing has been coded. Can the Symphony 2 be coded? My aux in is the external CD changer input converted to a 3.5mm socket. The fluctuations were measured with nothing connected to the socket.

    Symphony 2 battery drain (possibly) - help needed

    I am going to disconnect my aux input and see if this is the cause. After that I'd like to isolate the BOSE amp(s) if possible. Any pearls of wisdom?

    Symphony 2 battery drain (possibly) - help needed

    Hi, Today I tried to get to the bottom of an ongoing battery drain issue with my 2001 S3. With the car "thinking' it was locked, I used one of these and tested each of the fuses at the end of the dashboard and on top of the battery. The only fuse reporting any current was fuse 42...

    Hi, I'm in the process of get my DIS screen replaced and have noticed a small but annoying crack in the instrument cluster perspex. I don't suppose anyone has one they want to get rid of? Many thanks.

    Pipewerx 3" Downpipe - My View

    I had pipeworx downpipe and sports cat fitted last week ahead of MOT test. It passed and I don't think they were being 'friendly'...

    Should I replace custom remap with generic

    I can't see a new generic map gaining you anything over what you already have. Jabbasport are still going but look to be more focused on the 2.0T VAGs these days. Give them a call, see what they say. I'm hoping they may look after a returning customer/car.

    Should I replace custom remap with generic

    I'm in a very similar position. I have a 'generic' (as they called it back in 2008) Jabbasport stage 1 remap. Over the years I have added various bolt-on mods. I have just had a Pipewerx down pipe and sports cat fitted - can't wait to collect it. I have vag-com and I'm interested if there is...

    Replacing CCT - questions

    Hi, My valve cover gasket needs replacing and the last time I did this I also replaced the CCT gasket and half moon just by raising the CCT. This time, depending on pad wear, I am considering replacing the CCT itself 'whilst I'm there'. There are no errors in vag com, but I sometimes get a...

    This is also on my to do list. Does the door seal trim just pull off?

    My ming blue S3

    Hi @Vex182 Those BAF downpipes caught my eye. You say it is custom, I was under the impression they are all made from a jig? You say there is no light, but has it been through a MOT yet? If I lived closer I'd pay for BAF to fit. As I don't, I'm considering this as well as a Pipewerx. The...

    The moderately informational brake thread....

    Thank you for the feedback @ben4866, they do sound like a great upgrade. I have found someone who supplies custom carriers and bolts specifically for the Renault Brembo calipers to fit MK1 TT's and S3's. They claim the standard lines work with them but a new banjo bolt is required. My own...

    The moderately informational brake thread....

    Hey @ben4866 I haven't given up on this idea. Can I pick your brains some more? How has this setup been working for you? Is there enough meat on the creation brackets to be re-threaded to take the larger Renault bolts? I'm not sure I like the idea of sleeving with ali tube. Are different...

    Audi S3 8l fuel rail pipes

    So after some further reading I had potentially purchased some fuel hose of a dubious quality. I have now purchased some Codan SAE J30 R9 High Pressure Rubber Fuel Hose. It is supposedly "rated to 140ºC working temperature with intermittent 150ºC". Do you think the charge pipe generates...

    Audi S3 8l fuel rail pipes

    Thanks @<tuffty/> I'd prefer braided lines if deemed suitable. Otherwise would these in a suitable size work?

    Audi S3 8l fuel rail pipes

    I've replaced these fuel lines before (twice!) with aftermarket hoses. The line closest to the charge pipe seems to crack and I assume it is heat related. Do braided lines offer heat protection? Have you checked your lines aren't cracking under the braid? Is a heat reflective sleave the answer?
