    Audi dealer service or not?

    My S3 8P is 10 years old now and although it's got a full service history I have to question the value of getting Audi to perform what amounts to little more than an oil change and visual inspection. I'm very happy to service the car myself and can do a more complete job for less money, putting...

    Sachs clutch is slipping - WTF!

    Which Climate Control Unit?

    I've been experiencing battery drain issues which I thought were connected to my RNSe but I've had that unplugged while I've been away for a week and come back to a dead battery again :-( Following another avenue has indicated that this could be down to the climate control unit that's gone up...

    Last weekend the battery in my 2006 s3 went dead during the day. Battery was a year old and had been fine since putting it in and was told by the RAC that it was a faulty battery so replaced it and the same thing has happened and the battery was totally dead this morning. So with a mate we've...

    How to Disable Haldex?

    I'm trying to diagnose a 'noise' coming from the rear of my 2006 8p S3. It's a kind of thrumming / whirring that becomes apparent at about 30mph and you can then hear it constantly after that although it doesn't really increase in volume and I'm not entirely sure if the thrumming increase in...

    Rev D Dump Valve vs GFB DV+

    I'm going stage 2 next week (custom map with r tech) and I've been told that I need to remove the DV+ and refit the Rev D version. Happy to do so, just wondering if anyone else has had to go back to OEM or is running stage 2 with the DV+ without any problems?

    Sachs organic questions

    I've just started experiencing the dreaded clutch slip on my 2006 S3 since addind CAI and TBE to otherwise stock set up. From everything I've read Sachs will give me as close to OEM feel as anything else (a bit harder but not too bad) so I think that's the route I'm going to go. So which clutch...

    What am I doing wrong.......

    I'm looking for some help or ideas. First off can someone confirm, or not, that the Mk2 RNSe 8P0 035 193G is capable of using SDS functionality with the SDS hack. If it can I've reached a point from which I'm not sure how to proceed. Everything with the upgrade seems to work, so radio...
