    After 63months and 37.5k miles the S3 is going.......

    I have agreed to trade my 2014 3dr manual S3 for a 2017 R8 V10. Car has been great in a very unexciting efficient kind of way, only issues were faulty haldex just after 3yrs old but bought a 5year extension when I bought the car so nil cost. Car was bought new LHD from the UK for £29.5k and...

    Possible air con problem

    Folks, need some help please. 2014 S3 with the standard climate control, with the car warmed up the aircon appears to be very cool until I turn the temps to 20deg. Below 20deg setting the temp to 16-19 seems to make very little difference to the heat being output but once it gets to 20deg it...

    End of fast manual A3s?

    Just been looking at the French configurator to keep an eye out when the RS3 reappears................a manual S3 is no longer an option and you have to take the DSG. I wonder if that is a Euro wide policy in which case all VW group cars will follow suit. Out of the box S3 is now coming in at...

    JB1/DTUK/TMC etc again.....................

    OK folks I am fed up with reading how well some S3s go with a tuning box and might actually get round to trying one (just out of curiosity). Looking on various forums the DTUK seems the most common in the UK whereas the JB1 seems most common in US (particularly on VWs). My original plan was/is...

    I have had my 2014 S3 just over 3 months and done 3k miles, 800 miles of that was a non-stop journey to the south of France whilst still being run in.

    Spare rims 2014 S3

    Hello all, I am picking up a new S3 later this year and have started thinking about other things I need to sort out. One of those things is a spare set of wheels to put winter tyres on, I think I would prefer a set of 17s or maybe even 16s and they don't have to be Audi wheels but preferably so...
