    Any problems with the s3?

    If possible opt out of the LED headlights and MAG-ride. I have the LED headlights and if the bulb goes the whole light assembly has to be replaced at 1300 a pop and recently I believe my passenger from side electrical damper may have failed which is another 1200 part. Shock/strut mounts are...

    Battery replacement/Coding

    Battery coding is somewhat in question. Plenty of discussions whereby it’s a stalemate if it requires coding vs it does not. Lots of good information however there is no confirmation that it is indeed required. It’s in the owners manual and so is a bunch of other information. I had to...

    MMI freezing

    I’ve had something similar with the navigation, when setting a destination it would lock up on certain entries and to the day it’s still occurring (5 years). Thus far nothing resolved and no faults etc. Sorry this does not help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Super weird noise, can anyone help? (VIDEO)

    I don’t think it’s brake related as the sound seems to exist prior to rolling. You have warranty left on the vehicle? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    OBD Port disable by removing fuses

    A steering lock is your best defence, they are ugly and bulky but do the job. The concern with moving or modifying the OBD port, you run into an issue if you need to access the port in the middle of the night in some remote *** part of the country. You can purchase an OBD cap and put in a...

    Dead oil temp sensor

    Given my OCD I would most likely replace it as soon as possible however as long as you check your oil at every fill up then you should be ok. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    boring drive

    Before climbing aboard the S3 I had an Acura TSX 6sp and my wife a Subaru BRZ Aozora Edition. I was constantly trying to Scrape more power out of the TSX by revving the **** out of it and frankly got annoying after a few runs. The BRZ on the hand was loads of fun for such a smaller car. Plus...

    Brake Pad Choice

    Most importantly once done, pump the brakes a few times to build pressure before tightening your brake fluid reservoir cap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Brake pads for Audi S3 (67 plate)

    Stay away from Brembo pads. I had ordered a set and they rattled like crazy and it was loud when going over bumps etc. There was no shim or jacket built in. Took the hit and ordered a set of TRW pads and have not looked back. I’ll always recommend OE where possible, the photo shows what the...

    I love my S3

    I tend to agree. I’ve driven a few cars with start/stop and I can say that I hate it. I turn it off all the time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    MMI screen flickering

    Got a 15 S3 and every now and then it does this which is somewhat bizarre. I also noticed that every now and then the audio would decrease in its own for example listening to some Linkin Park at level 25 and then the volume would drop as if a call was coming in. Got to love technology!! Sent...

    Facelift S3 limp mode??

    Dealer confirmed bad coil which followed to cylinder 1 believe so they replaced it. They also checked the ignition module. As for your drivers mirror this is new to me. How do you know it’s not heating? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Facelift S3 limp mode??

    Yup exact thing happened to me, it was fine under mild throttle input however once I mashed the pedal the rpms would simply hang at about 4 to 5k and sputter. In my case there was no MIL or EPC or anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
