    JB4 info and discussion thread

    Hi all - interested in what Firmware you are running. I'm a bit nervous about updating but realise my firmware is 60/4/4 which is about 2 years old. This is on a 2016 S3 8V. I see F/W is up to version 60/83/5 now - but read that some people are having issues. Have you updated to the latest...

    2013 S3 Fuel Pump

    I had issues on my 63 plate S3 - car was running rough and there was residue around the pump - also a smell of petrol occasionally. When I took it into Audi they said there was a problem with a O2 sensor. After me pushing the issue about residue around the fuel pump they put a new pump on -...

    Facelift Audi Connect free trial about to expire

    Recently went through this, spoke to Audi via the chat feature and they raised a ticket with Audi (Germany ?).. took about a week and everything became available. I was a little annoyed by this as the previous car (8V S3 again) I had all of this with a Three Sim card and never had to buy any...

    Facelift Standard Dyno Readout

    The FL S3 feels much quicker than the previous 8V, although the new one is S-Tronic which of course will make it quicker but it just feels stronger.

    Gear box slotting into reverse rather then 1st!

    Assuming your car is manual.... this has happened to me on a few occasions - I assumed it was me, after a few scares I stopped using the Stop/Start feature (just keep clutch in now) as I felt maybe I was rushing too much to go into first when the lights change. I'd be interested if you get it...

    DTUK Box - low battery charge

    Thanks H17YD L- that confirms my suspicion that the box was probably causing the problems - and probably draining the battery to the extent that it was malfunctioning, I think I may also look for an alternative

    DTUK Box - low battery charge

    Hi Jungle - thanks.... I am actually using the car regularly again now, and on fairly long runs too, so the battery should be keeping charged. Actually, I had noticed the Start/Stop function had stopped working just before all this started so I think the battery was suffering, The new battery...

    DTUK Box - low battery charge

    Hi - has anyone else experienced any issues with the DTUK box (1st gen) when the car battery charge is low ? I spent some time working at home and wasnt using the car much - I was getting battery charge warnings shortly after, even after charging the battery it seemed that maybe the battery...

    DTUK map differences?

    There are a few threads on the forum that go into lots of detail, however, it depends what version of the maps you have - I believe there has been a recent update so discussion about map 1, 2 or 3 may be different depending on your firmware version. My understanding is that the 2 jumpers...

    Fuel pump leak

    Hi - I'm noticing a smell of fuel too.... anyone know whether this would cause any issues with performance too ? Is it a fault with the hoses or the pump itself - any ideas ?

    S3 Tyres...

    Never had any problems with Continentals on my last 4 S3's.... although, I was going to go for the Goodyear Eagle 1's or Michelins this time but when I came to order, the Continentals came out at around £105 each - no brainer. Always found them to wear well and are good in the wet (although, I...

    Yes - I can also confirm that moving the fuse to the always on position gives live 12v in the boot

    How to install tuning box on an S3

    Ahhh, I see, I'm going to have a play with it then - I assumed (wrongly) that 1 & 2 would have been less aggressive generally, personally I like the power to come in low or mid range so I'll try 1 & 2 out - many thanks

    How to install tuning box on an S3

    Hi - I've only ever had mine set to 3+3 - my S3 is a manual. I'd expected 3/3 to be the best for performance but is the +3 2 tune just as good or just different power delivery ?

    How to install tuning box on an S3

    Hi - I bought one of these after reading people saying it could take 20-30 minutes, maybe an hour to fit... However, I found I had to go an buy a set of ramps to be able to get to the lower sensor. The time to fit is probably about right if you've done it a few times and are able to ramp the...
