    Help please - S3 8V hunting on idle

    Excellent news Pop, they’re a simple cheap fix to what is a common problem on these engines. I suppose the magnets get weaker over time maybe, but that’s just a guess. The car will definitely feel smoother are the cam timing will be sharper now. All’s well that ends well.

    Anyone on here

    To many visits to Los Santos customs me thinks. Admittedly the whole package does work if you like TFATF. Not bashing, if that’s what you like that’s what you like. Not me though, give me a pristine original example any day.

    Help please - S3 8V hunting on idle

    Both are on the right hand side of the camshafts(left as you look at the engine). One for exhaust and one for inlet. A 30min job, just don’t drop the screws, and put a cloth under as they’ll leak a wee bit of oil. please do reply, as to many people let threads die without reporting back.

    Wow! £900. You’ll need to use that a few times to recoup the money.

    Yeah that’s them. But I ordered the OEM from autodoc, peirburg or febi bilstein. Link below.if you order Monday they’ll be with you by Friday at the latest, saves £50. https://m.autodoc.co.uk/febi-bilstein/7556412

    Camshaft Adjuster Magnets, they’re easy mate, 6 torx and a rag to catch the oil dribbles. They’re the 2 black magnets at the chain end of the head. Let us know how you get on, I’ll bet £100 it’s them.

    bye bye google satellite overlay

    Looks like it’s being changed over to maxar with HD imagery. PFL here so no interest to me. Although i do feel like there will be more of this coming on stream in the coming years since google sold off its imagery arm a few years back. No doubt the subscription price has gone up and maxar have...

    Facelift S3 Bevel box issues

    Low speed manoeuvring always gave a drone and what seemed like tyre scrub along with traction light flickering on. The oil leak was the real tell tale sign. They repaired it with a seal kit first time around. Then the symptoms came back a week or so later, it was then new box time. The car is...

    Facelift S3 Bevel box issues

    My RS3 has been to Audi twice now with problem related. They messed about and messed about. In the end they put a new box in. Problem solved.

    No there’s not, I was just giving my experience of at home tuning boxes. Either way, visiting a premises is a guarantee that you’re not stuck with a duff map. Just saying.

    TVS TCU flash with own tool

    I also looked at these devices, in the long term you’ll save money if you use it a few times over the lifetime of buying vw/Audi group cars. In the end I bought a unicorn developments one for the ECU tune and left the TCU. But even that didn’t work out and the map was garbage. So I would always...
