I haven’t posted in a very long time, and for those who do know me, knows I have a dislike for my s3!
I’ve said to my wife for years now that when I’m 30 I’m going to buy a new car, well today is my birthday!
I initially went to look for a used rs6! But once I saw this, it was love at first...
I’ve been saying to my wife for about two years now “when I turn 30, I’m buying a new car”
well today, I turned 30! And stayed good to my word!
I was actually looking for a used rs6, but the moment I saw the RSQ3, it was love at first sight!
I’m having it held back till March 1st...
(straight up, this is a plug for a go fund me page. Whilst I will appreciate any sort of donation I'm asking more of your time and share on social media if you could.)
My 7 year old English Bull Terrier has been diagnosed with Heart failure and requires a pacemaker to keep her...
So, I've sold my exhaust.
Scorpion decat and milltek catback. Non resonated and non valved which sounded absolutely incredible.
Now it's not a big job, I whipped it off yesterday and the oem setup back on this morning. Started it up and i swear its a prius sat on my drive way. Took it for a...
So, before I get a stg2 map I want to fit a Sach 4 paddle sintered clutch.
Now I've seen a 2nd hand one, claiming to have covered only 1k miles. But it's well priced.
My only concern is how it was used for the first few hundred miles whilst it was bedding in.
Would you take the risk?...
so, I've come across this downpipe install video (on youtube, no its not me)- yes ok its on a G...G....i don't want to say it. ...olf... 7R.
but we know the score here.
I'm sure it'll be of use to some of you guys who keep asking for DIY etc.
i am loving the design of the Two part Revo...
so picture this, Driving down the road listening to your favourite song on the radio, hell you might even be having a little sing along and boogie...then it decides to change to bluetooth - even though there are no active bluetooth devices in the car. (at first i thought it was my s7 edge trying...
Now, i've had circa 1,543 PMs about this. (ok, maybe 5 or 6)
when I've gone to forward the PM to the next person, the pictures don't work so i think its easier to make a thread.
now i didn't take pictures when i did it, maybe one or two on my phone, so I'm going to use some online images for...
Has anyone removed the front seats?
quick search of "removing seats" shows nothing.
I'm going to guess its 4 bolts on the frame and possible 2-3 connectors on a harness for Airbag / tensioners and another for heated pads.
im preparing myself for my interior detail.

This morning i received my DTUK FSR+ for MY15 S3.
Now i don't feel the need to post generic pictures, or even write a how to guide as @jungle650 has written a great one found here. It also contains pictures too. Go have a look. its great...
As the title says, Today i removed and painted my tail pipes Matte Black!
I used the thread on how to remove the tail pipes as a guide and it was spot on!
I removed the tail pipes, gave them a quick wash...with 40Grit sand paper! got them scored, but clean and shiny!
i used 3 cans of halford...
It would appear that some people are paying over, or under the odds for an APR remap.
we're talking stage1.
now their site is stating £599 + VAT so lets call it £720.
Now, I've just been Quoted £600 all in / INC VAT!
i've seen people this week, at other locations being quoted in...
Ive had my S3 6 almost 7 months now and i would be inclined to say i am bored of it, in a way i can't describe. ( i hope someone can understand how i mean)
Now, I've thought about getting rid of the S3, i have driven the S4, S5, M235i, A250 AMG, CLA250AMG and the 45amg! - also ridden...
So, I feel my s3 has a sloppy back end.
Shifting at higher speeds, lifting off / reducing throttle and going over to the brakes even at moderate speeds, around town in a spirited manner, it feels very close to say lift off over steer.
Today I popped into work and checked the tyre pressures.
I'm struggling to find anything specific about this and the 8V.
My S3 being my first Quattro car also, I want to seek the right advice from you guys who know a damn sight more than me.
I know on the older models and other Quattro models, you could pull a fuse or lift the handbrake 1 notch to...
Morning guys and girls.
So i got a call this morning to say I can't have 19s on my s3 unless I have mag ride at additional costs.
So I've opted to go back to standard wheels and I'll buy 19s at a later date.
The money I won't initially be spending on bigger wheels have gone towards.
Just ordered a Panther Black S3. Hopefully it'll be here in September! After a long winded ordeal with an S1 which has finally been returned due to endless issues.
No doubt in due course I'll be looking for stage 2 power!
Wanting to get as much info on vcds mods as I can for it's...
