    Oil leak , PCV? top of engine, breather and oil cap

    I noticed the same oily film on my breather pipe too. I replaced it with a genuine replacement part about a year ago and it's still clean and dry.

    Anyone went from 19 to 18 inch wheels for comfort?

    I like the stock 19s so I'd either get same style in 18 inch (there are similar styles available on wheelbase) or else I'd go for something completely different. It's just the bigger sidewall that I would expect might make the ride a bit nicer. The roads round here are terrible

    Anyone went from 19 to 18 inch wheels for comfort?

    There's 18s on my S1 but they're also 35 sidewall. I don't think I have any other options for borrowing a set of 18s with a 40 wall on them. I'll ask around though

    Anyone went from 19 to 18 inch wheels for comfort?

    I'm on stock 19 inch wheels with stock mag ride suspension on my S3 8V Saloon. Running 235/35 R19 PS4S tyres. I was considering trying 18 inch wheels with more sidewall in an attempt to make the ride quality a bit better. Has anyone done this and did it work?

    Carista App Now Avaliable For the 8V A3/S3 - PFL & FL Covered

    The main difference between first gen and the rest is the support for iPhone. I use Android so first gen was fine for me. I haven't purchased any credits in obdeleven as everything can be done in long coding or adaptations you just have to do a bit of googling first.

    Carista App Now Avaliable For the 8V A3/S3 - PFL & FL Covered

    Found this online. I purchased "First Gen Device" then purchased a "Pro Plan Subscription" inside the app. You used to get free credits with any device purchased but that's not the case any more except with the Unlimited pack.

    DQ250 limiting my DTUK box gains?

    Hi. I managed to get hold of a cheap used DTUK tuning box for my S3 just out of curiosity more than anything. I fitted it no problems and as far as I can tell it is working. I say as far as I can tell because I don't have any engine lights or problems whatsoever and the box is powered up and...

    Carista App Now Avaliable For the 8V A3/S3 - PFL & FL Covered

    Just started using it recently myself. I found carista easiest to use for the one click adaptations but it doesn't do long coding so I also had to sign up for obd eleven to long code some retrofits

    Definitely missing. They're just stuck on so it's either been removed for some reason or else the boot was replaced with a standard saloon boot and badge replaced but not the spoiler

    Rear cup holder options for S3 Saloon?

    Hi. Is there an OEM style solution to fit cup holders in the rear of the saloon? Mine has no rear arm rest. I was hoping there might be something that can be fitted to the the back of the front arm rest where the rear vents and power socket are? Thanks
