    Learner Driver RS3 insurance.

    Personally, I would buy a proper manual and let her learn to drive one of those (the hard way :wink new:). Will give you more choice of vehicle in the future. Yes, I realise most, if not all, will be flappy paddle or cvt before long but there are still a fair few that are manual.

    Knocking sound on a new built engine (JE PISTON) slap or somthing else?

    Strange Rattle sound when Car cold.

    Mine rattles on cold start until you switch drive mode, not sure if that is coincidental with the cat warmup cycle or not. I'm used to strange mechanical noises at cold start having come from a slapper of a scooby :tearsofjoy:

    Stage 2 RS3 which oil?

    When I was a Scooby owner and had it mapped, I ran a 10w60 purely to protect the turbo bearings (and cylinder 3) from the very high temps they see (and it was a sloppy flat four so no need for the lower viscosity when cold :tearsofjoy:) It's all down to personal preference within reason, if it...

    Facelift Audi 2019 RS3 saloon on order January 5th 2019 ...

    Indeed Terry, as my mother-in-law used to say "There aren't any pockets in shrouds". Enjoy it while you can as you never know what is around the corner (possibly not the correct analogy for a performance car thread) :) Fingers crossed for the star alignment and hope you enjoy the Porsche.
