    Roof bars for S3 8L

    No they sit against the section between the gutter and your rear side windows or front doors, dont seem to damage the seals either, I've left mine on for a couple of weeks at a time with no issues, I just make sure the rubber feet are clean before mounting them so it doesn't scratch the paintwork.

    Roof bars for S3 8L

    haha wont be selling mine as I need them for my bike carrier, sod getting the leather seats dirty! I only paid about £60 for mine on ebay though but finding a set is usually the issue. Seems to be a few sets on german ebay but they never seem to want to post over here.

    Roof bars for S3 8L

    I bought a set of genuine roof bars second hand off ebay, the rears fit the same as the fronts but you have to open the rear windows to get the clamps to fit to the roof. 3dr and 5dr roof bars are all the same and literally take minutes to fit or remove.

    A3 1.8T Power loss at 5500 RPM?

    Thats crossed my mind, Its got a new genuine Audi DV fitted so could be what controls the valve I guess? Unless Audi are in the habit of selling faulty DV's along with all those faulty MAFS?

    A3 1.8T Power loss at 5500 RPM?

    Quick update, just unplugged the MAF and been for a run down the A59 as its a good 2 mile open stretch of road, and the car is exactly the same, struggled just past 5500 in third but wouldn't go over 5200 in 4th gear. Looks like that wild goose is gonna take some catching I think.

    A3 1.8T Power loss at 5500 RPM?

    I'm not disputing the fact it could be the MAF just trying to understand why its doing exactly the same as the non genuine MAF was before it and why it only happens in 3rd and 4th gear?

    A3 1.8T Power loss at 5500 RPM?

    How is the maf faulty? It's about 3 weeks old and a genuine Audi part. I was thinking something along the lines of fuel pressure problems. I'll change the filter first and give it a whirl again. Just need to find some time to spend looking into it a bit more. Hopefully have a go this weekend.

    I've got range rover alloys on my 8L A3, 5x100 to 5x120 adapters used, speak to David and R&R alloys, he'll make any size adapters you want to suit your needs and is very reasonable priced. His work is spot on too!

    Ricks A3 1.8T Sport thread
