    Today I took my 2016 Audi S1 with 13,000 miles to a service and was advised that the Water Pump/Thermostat Housing was leaking and needs replacement with some urgency. The repair cost was a whopping £900!

    The car is only 3 months out of warranty.

    I have noticed a small amount of coolant use whilst I have owned the car but thought this was just normal usage.

    Further update to my Water Pump/Thermostat Housing failure. I was contacted by my local Audi dealer who offered me a “good will” gesture due to the low mileage, service history, and recent end of warranty. The replaced the faulty Water Pump/Thermostat Housing for under £300. I was very pleased with this outcome.

    That said if any of you have an S1 under warranty and experience any loss of coolant suspect a failing Water Pump Housing and get it checked out.

    Cheers for the heads up. Were there any visible external signs of the leak?

    I am guessing steam from the radiator grill

    The Only visible sign was a slight lowering of the coolant level, the leak could only be seen from under the car when on a ramp!
