    S3 wheelspin

    So got the car back, new haldex pump all installed and it feels like new again. Good service from Northampton Audi. Driving the TdI for a weekend really makes you appreciate the S3.

    S3 wheelspin

    Just an update call from the dealer that they are sure it's the heldex pump, interestingly Audi do a kit now for the dealers to replace this. Kinda proves it's common. Oh well going to see how many miles I can put on the tdi over the weekend. ETA of my car looks like Tuesday.

    8V S3 Tuning Thread

    I'm tempted to start getting a little more power out of my car now it's coming unto a year old, but no one seems to mention the Superchip route? Am I missing something here that it's pants? Seems cheaper so that's my assumption. Value your thoughts.

    Coilovers for the 8V

    For the love of god I am looking at getting some of these now, felt like I hit a bouncy castle today and nearly went off the road, not even exaggerating! How much did you get charged to fit them? Seems DPM have the best price as always ;-)

    Rear wiper removal and blanking.

    Looks clean, not my bag really but some people shave there eye brows off so guess it takes all sorts. Boring world if we were all the same. Good effort.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Yes that was mine for 3 weeks, if it wasn't so poverty specked I'd of had more fun but I was starting to like the colour, pops really well in the sun. So today I woke up feeling poorly and cannot do any work, oh maybe I'll go for a long drive shhhhhhhh!

    Parps and pops?

    Late to this convo but the loaner manual I have pops, not the parp from the auto it does the normal pop at high rev changes, it's not too loud in the car but it is outside. I did have a run on couple of pops to at one point while decelerating under load.

    Basic sound system?

    Ok I need to correct myself! Been playing with the standard system and got it sounding pretty ok now, as bob says above if you bias to the rear one or two notches, put the base on +2 and mid range on 0 with about 3 gala it sounds good. I will say that's at around 2 thirds volume and goes a...
