    Just put my S3 8P 2+ back to standard and now picked up a 2016 RS3. The noise is unreal i love it.

    Would upload a pic but it says everything is too large.

    Few things already though, either the P zero tyres are poo or the haldex is doing its job.

    And im either revving to high in 1st as im used to my s3. When i change gear in manual 1st 2nd. It changes violently and the traction light flashes at me

    The p-zeros are terrible. I swapped over to Michelin and is a massive improvement. In manual mode on the PFL you have to change up quite early in 1st to avoid whacking up against the limiter.

    Find a tunnel or underground car park, get the windows right down and be prepared for a shock!

    Nearly 2 weeks with the car now and still loving it. Thought id add some of the spec the car came with. Pan roof, B+O, Sat Nav, Super Sport seats, Auto lights and wipers (love these as my S3 wasn't spec'd with them haha)

    My S3 is now sold so i solely have this car now. Done nearly 28k so i wouldn't mind looking into what may need changing. Tyre's will be my first point as dont like these P zero. The brakes are impressive compared to the S3 (even after new disc and pads+ brake fluid)

    I still think it needs that secondary decat, needs a bit more more low down grunt i think.
    Any cool options i can do on OBD11 feel free to tell me, I need go have a play.

    Ordered some black badges and secondary decats today. Also got some qoutes to put my wheels black and diamond cut if i end up going that way. My dad has a body shop so maybe put the wing mirrors black also to go with the rest of the black on the car. Not 100% yet

    Someone on here, possibly @Callum66 had his wheel refurbed to diamond cut. They look incredible and OEM like and he didn't pay much at all...similar cost to a normal wheel refurb.

    Secondary decat is a must. Makes the car sound utterly mental. Not a big fan of black badges but ETTO!

    They do look good. I was going to get them done on my S3 but i didnt want black on black in the end. Been qouted £400 so far. Black badges are marmite for people i think, same with rear wiper delete haha. I like both to be fair.

    Another plus is i finally got put my private reg on this evening also.

    Not really doing much to this car due to warranty on it. But ive just ordered 4 new michellin PS4s. The PS4 on my S3 were amazing.

    Last weekend i visited Awesome GTI and had my haldex serviced

    Put my private plate on finally

    Secondary decats are going on tuesday. Ive got this week off so im hoping to give it a good clay and polish.

    Ive been messing with obd11 all morning adding a few bits on to it.

    Ill add some pictures anyways from a little drive ha 20181118_113327-3628x2721.jpg 20181118_113559-3628x2721.jpg 20181118_114011-3225x2419.jpg 20181118_114042-3225x2419.jpg 20181124_121220-3628x2721.jpg 20181118_113327-3628x2721.jpg 20181118_113327-3628x2721.jpg 20181118_113559-3628x2721.jpg 20181118_114011-3225x2419.jpg 20181118_114042-3225x2419.jpg 20181124_121220-3628x2721.jpg

    Think I need to get some secondary decats. I have sports exhaust on my PFL will the decats still keep the exhaust relatively quiet in comfort mode ? Did you go for Audi decats or Milltek etc?

    I went for Audi decat pipes. They're just a pipe at the end of the day and are both a similar price.

    Still sounds quiet in comfort mode. But in sports mode it's insane.

    I can't remember the exact price but somewhere in the region of £150.

    I'd highly recommend it!

    The Milltek and Scorpion versions are stainless steel so at least they don’t rust.

    I went for audi pipes for sale on here. Cruising around theres very little difference. I expected a bit more rumble low down but hey ho.

    I find the RS muted compared to my misses 18 plate SQ5 when the revs are low down and both in dynamic. When the taps open up then the RS is a lot louder. The decat pipes have added to that for sure.
