    Get a manual and fit an uprated clutch, even if you aren't modding ! I got a Sachs paddle clutch and flywheel and it handles a stage 2 map without any issues. If you're into diy the clutch change is a doddle and you can do it on axle stands no need to drop the subframe. I love the mag ride on...

    What do I need to know before getting a downpipe fitted?

    I've just fitted a scorpion decat on my pfl and I'm getting no warning lights. If you're doing it yourself you'll need a second pair of hands as getting the standard cat out is a little tricky. Oh and a ramp ! Gets a bit loud if you've got no resonator fitted.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    I understand that...... it's leaving the damaged parts on that's annoying, they must have repaired the bumper so why not replace the crash bar ‍♂️ Anyway, everything lines up ok and looks right so I can live with it. On the plus side I've got my new map on and the scorpion downpipe. The...

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    So I got round to fitting the intercooler, not too bad a job, little fiddly ! Turns out my Audi used approved has previously been in an accident ! Nothing on history, audi never notice it apparently. They changed the waterpump before I collected the car so I'm not sure how they missed it ? It's...

    S3 8v manual clutch chirp/squeak

    I sometimes get a little kind of rattle from mine sometimes when pulling away ? I thought it may have been because of the restrictor. Did you use the full Sachs kit or just the clutch ?

    I will try my best to be gentle on it, though I've just loaded a high torque map onto it so it may be difficult not to press on a bit :icon thumright: Thanks

    Manual clutch issue

    Ah ok, well I've put it all back together after a good clean and regressed of the spline and it feels better now and is slightly quieter so hopefully that'll do the job ! Thanks

    Manual clutch issue

    Ah that's a bitch, I've just put it all back together again for the second time after cleaning and checking I didn't put the clutch the wrong way round . The slave feels no different to the original and moves freely, was yours moving ok after it was taken out ? Sounds exactly like my issue, i...

    Manual clutch issue

    Any idea on this ? The new slave is approx 3mm smaller than the original ? There's a plastic bit on it which isn't on the new Sachs part.

    Manual clutch issue

    Greased the spline and the slave is a new Sachs unit, all bought as a kit so hopefully it's all compatible. Thank you for your input
