    Has anyone traded their RS3 in for an R8?

    I would recommend selling your Rs3 privately and rolling that cash into a deposit on the R8 - you'll probably get a better deal. Also, if you can stretch, get a plus as the residuals on these will be stronger. In my experience my RS3 feels faster but I think it's because I'm use to the size of...

    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

    I suppose it sounds a lot for an RS3 - maybe not?

    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 -...

    S3 Door Trim/Blades

    It was Audi Aylesbury - to be clear it was £90.43 for each front blade, the smaller ones towards the rear arches were additional, as were the screws for fronts.

    S3 Door Trim/Blades

    Yep, this has been moved to the wrong section. I also (now) own an 8L S3.

    S3 Door Trim/Blades

    Hi All, I'm looking for a replacement door trim/blade for the left door of my S3. I tried bodging the trim I have back onto the car, failed and now I need a replacement. Audi have quoted me £90.43 but have said it could take months before the part arrives, figured I would try my luck here before...

    Sportback Michellin ps4s?

    I recently moved to a PS4 squared 235 setup and it's been around 1,000 miles since I took the plunge. As my car isn't standard, I rarely drive with ESC on so cannot comment on traction light issues but what I can say is they're a completely different tyre in the wet. The grip is far better in...

    Facelift Front Disc Replacement

    I opted for the vagbremtechnic 2-piece discs - and Ferodo DS2500 pads. So far so good! They look mega too!

    New owner security questions

    There have been a few car thefts over the last couple of weeks in my area. I also live in a really quiet area but it would seem they're targeting BMWs. With that said I did buy a faraday pouch and box from Amazon yesterday. I might also invest in a steering wheel lock (any recommendations?)

    Facelift You tube RS3 owner and things he doesn’t like....

    Well.. this is awkward :yes: Not sure how I haven't seen this thread sooner! With this particular video I was scrapping the barrel for things I hate about the car, being honest it was a trend at the time to make these 'hate' videos and I was jumping on the bandwagon. It started out as me making...

    MRC Stage 1 - Car Safety

    The title of this thread is a little ominous but it's late and I couldn't think how else to ask the following: I've recently had some work done on my car by MRC, I've had a Stage 1 remap, high flow filter, revised coil packs fitted, NRG race spark plugs, Forge inlet pipe, Forge turbo elbow and...

    Facelift Pirelli Tyre Defects - Response

    I think I've commented on this thread once already but I have now gone through 10 front tyres in 18 months. Each time I buy a new tyre I rage a little inside but I've just learned to expect it now. For extra context I have done 45,000 miles in my car.

    Sportback Intermittent Flashing Engine Management Light

    Hi All, The car went into MRC this week for a Stage 1 remap, high flow filter and some Forge intake parts. I'm really impressed by how much it's transformed the car however I have noticed something a bit weird.. As I pull through the gears, when I'm in 4th at 3,500/5000rpm the car makes a...

    Facelift Another month, another tyre.

    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...
