    Audi S3 8p DSG - not selecting gear - help

    Yeah only bought it January. Thankfully warrantywise covered nearly the full full except for £400 which I had cover as Audi wanted to replace the oil cooler and a wiring loom within the gearbox which were broken but as a preventative measure in the future. I plan on keeping the car a lot of...

    Audi S3 8p DSG - not selecting gear - help

    Good luck with cost. Similar fault on my RS5 cost £2700 at Audi to fix. Could have saved £1k going to a specialist but Audi squeezed car in the next day and had gearbox out, stripped, repaired and back on road in less than 48 hrs including extended test drive with 2 yr warranty on it.

    Should have listned to the pros

    I've fit a load of shocks and springs standard and lowered etc and looking at your pictures it looks to me as if you either have the wrong shock or wrong sized spring for the car. Never have i needed to fanny around shortening shock absorbers. Them front springs look like Linear as well...

    Looking for decent not expensive front brake discs please give me advice

    I just put brembo 330 mm front discs and bremo pads on my A3 170. Cost £115 delivered from ebay. Juat made sure you get the right sized disc. 170 comes with different sized discs and pads. Look at the label in your book for the part code and match against the brakes your odering.

    New brake discs and pads

    I've just had delivered some some brembo front discs and pads for my A3 170. Current set have clocked up 33k and pads still only half worn but brakes have started vibrating badly when heated up. Inner disc looks unevenly worn and most likely warped so I'm gonna swap them on Wednesday when I'm...

    Mintex disc + pads on a A3 170 Quattro anyone?

    I bought my A3 170 quattro with 22k on the clock and they fit new discs and pads all round. Found out today they were Eicher branded so just brand but they have been spot on. Clocked up 55k now so they have done 33k. Rears are fine but the fronts have started vibrating badly when braking so I...

    Audi S3 8P random ESP dash light - haldex gen 2 fault

    I'm Newcastle area and have carista and vcds if your up this way. Cheapest way is carista but they now charge a yearly or weekly fee. I bought the app years ago and got lifetime fee for about £16. VCDS is definitely the better long term option. Saved me a load of money on my A3 and picking up...

    Audi S3 8P random ESP dash light - haldex gen 2 fault

    You need to get error codes checked before clutching st straws. Most haldex errors don't even produce any kind of warning or errors on the dash. The car simply reverts to FWD only and you only realise their is an error when you start seeing the traction light flash and front tyres spinning in...

    Audi S3 8P random ESP dash light - haldex gen 2 fault

    Don't want to worry you but them fault codes point to a faulty Haldex controller rather than the haldex pump. The controller is underneath the car near the haldex pump. First i would check it's not just a damaged cable so unplug the cable and check and clean all the contacts. Their is an earth...

    haldex clutch pump failure help

    Looking at the number of times the error has been reset your looking at needing a new pump. Its a 10 min job to fit but needs the oil out. Bit of a fart on chancing an oil/filter change as you will need to buy more oil later when you replace the pump. My guess is the filter hasnt been changed...

    A3 2.0tdi 170 clutch problems after remap

    Everything wears depending on how it's used and abused. Think of tyres as an easy example to physically see. Drive sensible and will last well. Grand prix starts, tearing around corners etc will wear much quicker. I've always mapped cars. Subaru Sti. Bought at 17k miles mapped etc and sold at...

    Audi 55reg quattro load vibrating at 2 thousands revs

    I think the choice of colour also depends in what options the original buyer ticked as some cars come with the grey/silver lower from splitter which looks good against some colours. Some cars without the lip look kind of plain. Sepang blue does appear to be the most common colour but still my...

    Audi 55reg quattro load vibrating at 2 thousands revs

    My vibration and the noise that came with it usually started at around 2000k and could be heard and felt up to around 3000k and then would completely go above 3k. Was much more noticeable in 4th 5th and 6th. I do like this A3 and engine though. Plenty of power and fuel economy is spot on...

    Buying advice

    Lol no worries. I was just saying I wouldn't be put off because of a little more weight. All cars weigh far more these days that when i bought my first car over 20 odd years ago when they were tin cans :)

    Audi 55reg quattro load vibrating at 2 thousands revs

    It wasn't as bad as the rear but initially i started thinking it was the DMF Due to the location. Also noticed when pulling away I could feel a slight clunk and felt like a little slack/give in the drive of the car on the transmission...hard to explain. That's all gone so definitely must have...
