    Whining diff?

    Haha, if it was really that serious i dont think i would have done 10,000 miles of hard driving without the gearbox exploding or the noise becoming worse, dsg's are known for making all sorts of noises anyway think of it as character :p Chris

    MPG after remap 2.0 TFSI dsg

    I never really noticed any increase in mpg with my shark remap, a lot more power but economy seems the same, i can get around 38mpg on motorway cruise, the thing that did make a difference was going from 17 to 18 inch wheels, but the remap didnt seem to do much for economy Chris

    interesting vid rs3 loses to bmw

    I love audi's and have always had them but the rs3 is not great and especially for £40,000 for a car with sporting pretensions all it has going for it is the outside looks and the engine, and that m135 is lovely!! i know what car i will be getting next :) Chris

    Oh ok, i am sure mine is a 2012 but maybe its worth an update as i would love that feature!! Also love the sound of the cai, does it increase the engine sound or just add the "darth vader" sound? Chris

    Audi a3 sline T FSI 1.8 vs 2.0

    You wont find a lot of difference between a 2.0tfsi and an s3 especially on short trips, the 1.8 isn't that much better either unless you get a later model when they made it more efficient Chris

    DSG limiter action this morning..

    Mine also does this and it is not an s3, it almost feels like traction control but makes the sound of pop pop and no traction light, i have also noticed that when i put my foot down in second gear and the car wheelspins it will change up to 3rd on its own to try and stop the wheelspin, very...
