Does look like it, but a large collection of feathers that was dug out of my mate's car grill, who was following, point towards a pheasant :)

Went to Santapod yesterday.... messed up 3 of the 4 launches and struggled getting into 3rd gear when over 5k revs.... grrrr
short shifting seemed to work fine! Great day out though but the times wernt great considering ive had a 12.8 before ;/



Hi Mate

Sorry to say but when I read that my first thought was that sounds like the Loba Clutch problem and then saw your sig so many people have had problems with gear changes it's unreal have a google mate

Yep it's dawned on me too! I have the shim in tho which they have suggested!
I'm hoping it's a slave cylinder or something??
If not its definately that clutch

Hi Mate

Yep only rears it's head on fast high rev gear changes a lot of people have been in contact with Loba but from what I can work out they are dismissing it.... I'm lucky to see all the problems and went Sach's and DMF instead and safe to say is flawless at any revs or speed!

Maybe take it up with who fitted it supplied etc but your not the first this weekend at Pod in a s3 with same clutch and same problem

Hope you get it sorted mate!

Today I...

Pulled out my air install, tidied it up a little, thought about redesigning it, put anti-vibration mounts on the compressor, emptied water out of the tank, then put it all back together again.

Fixed number plate light. Cleaned engine bay.

Think that was it for today. Took me a while.

Visited Crewe Audi to chop in the A3 BE for an A6 BE.

Def. sad to see it go, but the A6 is quite something and a tad more family friendly. Hoping my A3 will got on to someone who will look after it like I did and maybe see it pop up here again too! :racer:

Besides the starter motor,the car has had a few presents over the last 2 weeks.

A rear brake kit arrived first....

And then the VWR front kit gave up and got replaced with this....

With a car as fast as yours, how does dirt and rust even have a chance to stick? BTW, brake kit seriously approved!

I raised the coilovers around 12mm on the fromt and a little more on the rear. I felt very grown up riding a car that had been altered for comfort and handling over drop and stance.

got round to doing my car at the weekend , sat all the way down on all corners of the coilovers , still pretty high for my liking , still using standard drop links front and back and no scrubbing rubbing or nasty noises (all round win as i have a kid to drive about ).
2 hours after fitting the new shoes , i get cut up by a taxi on a small 2 lane roundabout and was faced with losing the front of my car or hitting and mounting the curb , so of course i chose the curb and its left the wheel with a horrible scuff. :sign unfair:

With a brief spell of sunshine, I got around to doing mine today. Had the grill already dipped off the car as it needed replacing due a small bump a while back. Took around two hours to swap over. I personally think I need a few more coats of plastic dip to finish it off but I can that on the car now its fitted. Pretty happy with it.




Offering up the new grill. Was an absolute bitch to get the old one off and this one was equally as awkward to line up. Went on in the end with some persuasion.
