    AP Racing brake kit turning black?

    Hello, Not sure if there are still any familiar faces around, havent been browsing AS alot. Mainly due to the new workload, new beloved (or not), and possibly the new website theme which i find quite hard to get used to. Anyways, my AP BBK on the S3 is turning black on some parts, a sort of...

    Volks RE30 and AP BBK on!!

    Hi guys, I'm getting some new wheels (volk RE30 :yum:), and it seems that I cannot re-use the stock bolts. Can someone tell me what sort of lug bolt do I need? Conical? What length? what sort of socket head? I've read this thread, but it's all so mind boggling!! I just want to install the...

    Hairline cracks on brake pad?!?!?

    Someone please tell me this is not normal. Brakes were squeaking today, so I thought why not just drop by the garage to have a look at the pads. I'm currently at 26000kms, lots of motorway driving, but the occasional blast on the mountain roads and some track events. Got the typical audi...

    bike stickers.

    Quick rant & rave. Some of you might recall that I'm getting a bike, so it's arrived, and I'm painfully breaking it in slowly. It was supposed to look like this Which imho...would be banging if I were 17 years old again, but the lion thing they have going on reminds me too much of Proton's...

    Stock S3 + wet/damp track = fishtail?

    Had a few incidents today's track event. It started off as a very wet track, and gradually dried out, but still damp towards the end. Apparently the stock S3 can get its tail out rather easily, but the driver really has to be careful when wanting to correct it, or god forbid, attempt to change...

    Pardon the off-topic post, but I'm so excited!!

    http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y173/boggysv/RS125/ Nope, no baby or any pregnancy news here, but I finally got my first bike, my very own precious! :wub: Just got her back to accompany the S3, I'd say they will make a fine pair of garage mates. Will get some good pics soon, the salesguy...

    Lotus Exige

    Drove one today, albeit for a short while, and got a demo ride with a pro driver on the wheel, wow oh wow.... In the showroom, it's plasticky looking, looks hopelessly impractical, and has "only" 200 odd horse power, but boy oh boy did I get excited even driving out of the parking lot. It...

    I've got to be the crappiest S3 driver the audi brand has ever known.

    :crying: Signed up for a trackday but it got canceled due to the lack of confirmed participants. Organizers arranged to move those who paid (including myself) to a Honda event which is happening earlier. Thinking I'd be battling with normally aspirated yet torqueless FWD machines that needs to...

    8P reverse camera...looks nifty.

    Apparently some smart guy have figured out how to have the R8 reverse camera with trajectory guides work with the A3's RNSe. Perfect OEM solution for the weekend DIYer it seems. Personally, I dont have an RNSe, nor am I affiliated with the proprietor, just thought someone here who would be...

    Wheel humming noise while on the motorway.

    Going to send my car to audi to have it looked at tomorrow. The front left side wheel is making some loud humming noise. The noise is only audible while at high-ish speeds on the motorway going straight, and it's only from the front left side. It will only happen after driving for a while, so...

    I feel so slow in the S3 :(

    Maybe it's just me being a ****** driver, but last weekend, I did a run along some back twisty roads with some friends, and couldnt keep up. There was a cayman S and a mini cooper s, although both have some suspension work done, I didnt expect them to pull away so quickly that I cant see the...

    S3 with 17" wheels?

    I've got some trackdays planned for the end of this year, and wondering if it'd be worth it to get a set of 17wheels for it? Other than the lower rotating mass and cost, what other benefits or downsides should I expect? Think I can get a set of golf gti wheels for cheap and it wouldnt cost too...

    Car people who knows too much.

    So I have this female friend who's into cars, well, both she and her bf. The guy is having some limited success in some carpark events (autocross) with his daily use car (a Proton of some sort). 1) The guy knows EVERYTHING there is to know about cars...i kid you not, there is not a single topic...

    My brakes are vibrating, and it's not the good kind :(

    Think it's caused by my last trackday (10th aug). The vibration is not really noticeable when braking lightly. When at speed (typically > 50mph) and braking harder than normal, I can feel the brake pedal vibrate/pulse. My passenger can also feel the vibration coming from her side of the car...

    Very noob-ish question, but how do you brake for repeated hard stops?

    Understand that they teach you to never coast while in driving school, but lets say you are at a track for example, what should you do? drove the S3 to track today, and I just cant figure out how to properly brake:confused: Say you stomp on the brake pedal with the clutch engaged, IF the ABS...

    Xenon coding for S3

    Hi all, need some quick help after fiddling with my vag-com. My car is a 8P S3, with adaptive lights. I believe all S3s come with bi-xenon? Why is it then that my vag-com screen says that I do not have "xenon headlights with shutter"? Should I tick and save? Or is that indeed the correct...

    Kerbed my wheels AGAIN!!!

    Engine Oil Temperature reading on DIS

    Hi all, My car is a 8P S3, totally stock, and while hooning around, I can easily get the oil temps to reach 100'c. This figure is read after turning into rest areas, so I'm guessing actual peak temperature is higher. While driving normally, it stays at 90'c, but a few short sprints and it'd...
