    Post Pics Of Your A3/S3 8v In Here

    I have been a member on here for a few years now. I started with an 8l s3 which lead me down a road of tuning ending up with a forged engine running stage 2 hardware and mapping by Bill at Badger 5. I then moved into a sensible a4 b7 2.0tdi s-line whilst i saved up for my first house. And now we...

    Wheel/Tyre Size

    In my opinion the 17" wheel looks too small on the s3. 18's fill the arches and compliment the arches much better in my opinion and i have had both sizes.

    Anyone used these before

    I used the standard LUK DMF and the stage 2 clutch came with cg's own uprated cover plate. Worth changing the slave cylinder whilst the box is off too. Standard item does the job.

    Fuel filter change help

    The fuel filter is under the car towards the rear drivers side. Easily assessable using a jack. Its a small silver pot shaped like a cylinder as shown above in the pictures robs posted. Be careful with the connectors and fixings as they are prone to breaking.

    Noggy blue S3 progress thread

    As Scot has said, your can check the rods etc by removing the sump. Might be worth doing a decent oil change anyway. Just a matter of draining the oil and undoing the large number of sump bolts around the seal lip, dropping it and having a look. At least that will give you an idea of what level...

    Brake problems

    Davg, i wouldn't know about the servo sorry mate hopefully someone else will be able to help with that one. However i found that the standard brakes on the s3 were sh**e even when they were working as they should. I firstly upgraded the pads to ebc red stuff, still poor. I now have a complete...

    Without causing any issues as i know the manifold issues from the past. How does this compare to the new relentless pro 4 manifold. Any obvious differences. This is my next purchase so doing as much research as i can.

    Downpipe fitting ouch!

    I was quoted similar figures to yourself for the same work, even had some garages claiming that its too much of a PITA so they simply wouldn't quote. Prawns right, find a mate and get cracking. It so happens that i took my old engine out 'engine failure' so i could simply fit the down pipe and...
