    I’m not overly amused by your attitude either. The guys are all friendly and helpful. @Daveyonthemove only pointed out that it would be better to start a new thread. Your reply was uncalled for. Please remember we have young people reading this forum.

    Maybe a stupid question but does the Cam Chain come on the FL 8P S3 or both?

    Has anyone replaced their coil ignition pack on a s3 8p with the 'r8' coil pack/ has anyone had any issues relating to stock coil packs.

    thanks in advance.

    I had issues with my stock coils causing misfiring under load 2007 BHZ. They were replaced by the red 'R8' coils as the garage didn't have the standard ones in. No doubt new standard coils would've fixed the issue.

    Apart from it being cheaper than stock as well as a better colour is there a performance benefit?

    Although not common knowledge, the main problem is coming from the ageing of porcelain insulator. Better use Oem NGK as they are cooper core and change them more often.

    How do I tell if I need to replace my DV? I had a RamAir intake installed recently and get flutter at high revs, is this an indication?

    Also what's the best place to purchase a GFB DV+?

    When it reaches the top end just before a shift change, I assumed it to be normal but just wanted to check. Lol yea true, think mine is ok though.

    Hello Guys
    I have a question whether the installation of an oil catch tank would not be a better option for the s3 engine or is it better to replace for new PCV valve?

    Currently trying to replace the dipstick and the funnel on my 59 plate S3, got the old stuff off but can’t get the new funnel on? Anyone know how to do it? Or do I need to take inlet manifold off?
    Tried searching on here, other forums and YouTube to no avail... please help

    Never mind, it’s on, wouldn’t come off easily again and dipstick has oil on the end, before I start the car is there anything to double check to make sure it’s on properly? Not a mechanic so slightly panicky about this stuff haha

    Does anyone know if 2010 facelift s3 has the issue with oil pick up and the cam follower or was that for older engine revisions?

    Thanks

    I can read in the 1st post that the Cam Chain & Tensioner should be replaced.

    I only bought my S3 2012 CDLA, just passed 60k miles.
    Service book signed by audi confirms the toothend belf has been replaced at 50k. No mention on water pump.

    Does it mean I should prioritise cam chain and tensioner? Are they failing?

    Is it a good idea to replace this or can you simply remove it, clean it up and replace it?

    Replace it mate its only 50 quid not worth the time you will spend on cleaning it as its very very fine mesh in my honest opinion
