    Miltek System?

    Hi All, Has anyone fitted the Miltek full system to their S3? What's the sound like and does it drone at all? I've tried searching for videos on this but I'm not having much luck. DK

    Facelift Car Cutting Out at Lower Revs

    Twice this week my car has cut out at lower revs, by this I mean blipping the throttle below 3K revs. It happened both times as my car was warming up. Also, the car is chugging a bit more at idle. The last Oil change was around 3K ago, I had a new PCV around the same time. NGK spark plugs -...

    Another tyre blew on me yesterday. Same issues as the others before it, the inside wall had worn down to the beading. My 6th, yes, 6th front tyre in 13 months. For added context my car has done 29K miles but this tyre issue is getting a little out of control now! I'm off to Geneva on Friday...

    Facelift RS3 Smoke Issue?

    Hi All, Over the past 2/3 weeks I've noticed white smoke is coming from the left side (if you were looking at the car head on) of my grill.

    Facelift Weird Tyre Wear on RS3 (FL)

    I've had my RS3 for 6 months from brand new. It's had a couple of ongoing issues during this time such as the oil consumption and squeaky brakes. After going back and forth with Audi (as they could never replicate the brakes) they finally discovered an issue with 2 of my pads. Whilst replacing...

    RS3 Delivery Time?

    Hi, I ordered an RS3 in mid August and I am being told by Audi they cannot confirm a build week for the car and I should expect January/February for delivery. I wouldn't be as bothered if I didn't keep seeing new RS3's being delivered in the UK! My guess is some people are buying showroom...

    S3 Damaged! Hit and Run

    No, I didn't drive hit somebody and drive off! Instead someone hit my car with theirs and drove off. Fortunately the damage isn't too bad - I can't make it to an Audi garage this week but would anybody have a rough idea of how much this would cost to have repaired?

    Weird noise coming from wheels (S3)

    Hi, On Friday my brand new S3 was delivered. Since then whenever I drive it slowly there is a strange sound coming from the front drivers side wheel (best guess) - the best way I can describe is a chain being dragged along the floor. I live in a pretty big residential area packed with speed...

    A3 - Timing belt question

    Hi All, I have a 2008 1.9 TDi 105 A3 that has done 75,500 miles. I am unsure whether or not the timing belt needs changing. The service history isn't very clear and I have contacted the Audi garage that last serviced it but they have no record of whether the timing belt was changed or not. A...
