    S3 Centre silencer/resonator delete

    It sounded absolutely awful, however some people like the sound, to me it sounded like a clapped out old mini with a broken exhaust. I have no idea why but on the Golf R it sounds fine.

    S3 stolen Lastnight

    I find the wheel lock is the best deterrent there is. Thieves want a quick getaway and this prevents it. I remember reading a article about a convicted car thief who stated that he would avoid the cars with the steering locks. Costs £30-90 depending on brand and I use one on my s3, its parked...

    So cheeky, Audi literally give you nothing as standard do they.

    Supersport seats VS wingbacks

    They do share the same frame/chassis It's really cheeky but all Audi have done is interegrated the headrest and given it some fancy stitching. Dimensionally they are the same as the standard Audi seat that comes in every model from the 1.2tsi to the s3! It's unacceptable imo and I even wrote...

    Looks nice, didn't the facelift have the new flashy display like the TT?

    Supersport seats VS wingbacks

    The wingbacks are a far superior seat in every possible way. Wouldnt even put them in the same category!

    S3 stolen Lastnight

    I get so angry watching stuff like this. What kind of person would take someones treasured pride and joy, just utter scum. This is going to sound crude but I hope those guys get ball cancer or similar, they are making hard working up standing citizens life a misery. Its the most horrid feeling...

    S3 stolen Lastnight

    SO terrible, i always worry about the same thing happening to me. I would say hope it makes its way back to you, but honestly it would be better if the insurance just covers the loss completely allowing you to get a new car.

    8V S3 Tuning Thread

    You mention high cylinder temps and its something that i suspect may be the actual cause of the cracking. But its still early days and perhaps if it is a issue with the pistons from a manufacturer level then perhaps later versions of this engine will be fixed much like the turbos were.

    8V S3 Tuning Thread

    It's looking like tune or manufacturer defect that's causing some piston failures. It definitely is not power level related as some stage 1 cars have also had the same thing happen. Not trying to scare people, obviously I'm not concerned since I bought another car with effectively the same engine!

    custom remap ? over generic tune revo/apr

    Its not cloak and dagger, its just that i cant just come out and say something bold because i will be shot down in flames by a few companies and attract the wrong sort of attention. Tin foil hats everyone...... There seems to be a serious weakness in the pistons used in the EA888, they can...

    custom remap ? over generic tune revo/apr

    Still collecting info from pretty much the world over, it was looking like one tuning company alone is causing certain engine vulnerabilities to trigger in a pretty serious way. But now its looking like there is more than one company so perhaps its all tuning in general on the EA888.

    custom remap ? over generic tune revo/apr

    so you know best what works well with your car when playing with the SPS? of course tuners have a base file, but every single car is different and are never the same and all require tweaking, you need to be able to view exactly what the ecu is doing which cannot be done by changing settings on a...

    I'll stick with the IS38, gives near enough 400bhp/435ft-lb and no lag.

    custom remap ? over generic tune revo/apr

    Because no two cars are the same, this is becoming clearer and clearer to me as time goes on when tuning.
