    S1 "offroad" mode?

    It’s the sat Nav and it literally means it’s not on a marked road, hence the nav doesn’t know where it is - or ‘off-road’ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S1 Clutch Master Cylinder Replacement - Advice?

    I changed mine. Doesn’t need any dash removing. Just needs the metal bracket around the pedals removing and then you can unscrew it from the bulkhead. Very very fiddly on the engine bay side but took me about half a day to change it all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Audi S1 - High Pitch rotational noise under acceleration

    Good Evening! I have a 2015 Audi S1 and under heavy/full acceleration I get a rotational sounding high pitch 'ch-ch-ch' noise that increases with road speed. The noise is ONLY present under acceleration with Quattro enabled. As soon as I pull the fuse on the Haldex, the sound disappears. -...

    I did 70K miles on my OEM clutch. No slipping, I changed it due to going stage 1, but up until the change it was still going strong Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anyone used an accident management company?

    I was forced into using an accident management company when I had my non fault crash. I would stay well away. We had nothing but trouble with them. Excessive car hire charges, and forcing our hand to sign a contract which left me liable to ALL charges no matter the outcome of the case. They...

    Clutch replacement poll and questions (from new owner)

    55K on the clock, stock clutch. Touch wood no issues yet, except it being quite notchy. Pretty convinced it will start to slip soon though just because of mileage Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Have you coded it or was it already active/from factory? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hill Hold Assist

    So I'm under the consensual opinion that Hill Hold cannot be activated on facelift A1's/S1's - however, i've just treated myself to ODBEleven for Christmas. Their app/forum seems to suggest Hill Hold is possible using the following coding; Hill Hold Assist Activation Select Control unit 03...

    What year is your S1? About to purchase one, but the advert says 2016 onwards models only. i don't think there is any difference between my 14' plate and a 16' plate model?

    Hill Hold Assist - VCDS?

    Agreed. It's strange that my older 2011 A1 had it from factory and could easily have been coded using VCDS, but my much newer 2015 S1 doesn't have it, nor can be coded...

    Hill Hold Assist - VCDS?

    Yeah I'm pretty specced out and i've counted around 5-6 mods I can do... Will have to do some serious thinking before I splash £250 big ones! Cheers for the quick replies!

    Hill Hold Assist - VCDS?

    Hmm, doesn't look too promising then.. I'm on the cusp of buying VCDS, but for the price am wondering if it is worth it for the amount of mods available on the S1 platform Vs just paying circa £20 for someone already with VCDS to do it

    Damn, I had it on my old A1 and I miss it! Hopefully Ross Tech will figure it out soon!
