Currently an 8L S3 owner, but I think the time has come to change it for something I can get the old folks in, and looking at a B7 or possibly a B8 A4 Diesel Quattro Saloon.
There seem to be plenty of 3.0tdis around at the monent for reasonable money, and was looking for opinions on...
Just noticed a repeatable stutter for the first time today, which only happens above 5k when accelerating hard. The engine seems to misfire and stutter until I change gear, then we are off towards the horizon again, smoothly until we hit around 5k again. Checked it again several times...
Looking for advice on a curious one with my S3 the last few weeks.
I've noticed that the biting point has shifted very high on my clutch the last week or so. It used to be quite low before. It does not seem to be slipping, but I'm concerned it might be on it's way out. Had a new clutch...
Is it me, or has there been a huge increase in the spam and other bo\\ox posts since Christmas? :ermm:

Was that you coming down the hill from Boars Hill towards the Hinksey Interchange yesterday around 3pm?
I'm guessing you from the number plate...
I was in the silver one coming up the hill.
B**ger. Just happened to be in a pub where some cr*p video by the Blackout Crew (apparently called 'Ravers Binge') was on, and the centrepiece car was a seriously chavved up A3 8L
Not good for all of our street cred methinks...:banghead: :keule:
A curious problem the last week or so :
When I start up from cold, the clutch pedal does not rise back fully until the engine is warmed up. The biting point is fine and the clutch still works as I would expect, except that the pedal rises to about half way, then stops. If I then take...
Hopefully changing my shocks next week, as she is bouncing around all over the place, and lifting the inner front wheel when accelerating through uphill corners, and the forums suggest replacing the top mounts at the same time.
Which of these bits do I need to get? Both the top two...
