    Hi, I Just wondering if anybody has had theare S3 engine carbon cleaned and whether it’s made any difference? Or does any one know if the 1.8t suffers from carbon buildup?

    the 1.8t has port injection, so no carbon build-up as the fuel is injected in the intake ports, cleaning the valves properly

    Carbon cleaning usually gives good results on diesels, petrol cars are usually quite clean internally, unless you got something like a 335i and you poodle around town at 30mph. I had a Hyundai 1.6 CRDI carbon cleaned and the acceleration had improved but barely noticable if I am honest, the lad who done it said he does loads of VAG diesels and them boys notice big gains in lost power.
