Car went into Audi stansted for abs software update yesterday, they gave me an A4 courtesy car for the morning

Then told me the update hadn't worked and would need a new abs module and would be done by Tuesday

I had to return the A4 and they gave me an A6 3.0 Quattro

Yeah Lea, are they happy to do the ABS one and not the emissions recall - as this is my worry?

Yes they had no issues with only doing abs update, I told them car was remapped and I didn't want emissions update done , even left a postage note in red felt pen stuck to steering wheel saying so , in all I can't fault them , didn't get any free gift though like someone on here did

Thought I'd do some maintiance on my S3,

Changed the PCV to the new revised one. Didn't need doing. Also did cam follower and Spark plugs. All were in good condition. Cam follower was like new so I put it away. Also changed the rear brakes and discs with genuine OEM from Audi. Got all my parks from Mike. Top guy.

Nice mod, has it made much difference? Where did you source the product?

AP coilovers, Whitline rear ARB and a short shift.
Week before I put my winter wheels on, getting mine refurbished.
Had my windows tinted few weeks ago and added the wind deflector.
Need some time to get my bank balance back up before I do anything else!!

My propshaft decided to poo itself on a trackday so just had that swapped out for a new oe item. Same time fitted the scorpion downpipe and sports cat.
Cat-back arrived yesterday so getting that on this weekend and also ordered myself a TTS engine cover to fit, since I've now got an aftermarket intake.

Had FrankenAudi serviced yesterday, DSG flush then new oil &filter, Engine flush then new oil & filter, new plugs and general check over. They couldn't replace the drivers side O2 sensor as its properly seized to the manifold , only way now looks like a replacement manifold and a major ball ache to fit it - Balls! Guess I will just live with it (or until MOT failure for emissions no doubt), car still returns 300 miles to the tank, starts and runs fine.

My first post on this forum, got my Audi A3 a month ago. Got the brake discs and pads changed last week and famous cam follower this week. Today DSG oil and rear break discs, only if I will manage to twist in a seized rear right caliper....

Where did you source the wind deflectors from please? Any noticeable difference?

Wind deflector came from here:-
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331605542894
Don't notice any difference until I get to/go past about 60. Slight wind noise.
I have a set on the wife's A3 and they seem a lot louder on her's than mine!?
The main difference is I can crack the window open after it's been raining and not get ****** soaked!! Lol!!

Ah and here I thought that it would reduce wind noise after 60! There's something about my A3 - anything above 60 and the driver side gets noisy and hissy!

Decided to do the cam belt and water pump on my facelift 2008 s line tdi yesterday, I found it a bit less fiddly on the common rail engine than my older 2005 A3 View attachment 131974
View attachment 131975

When I lowered the under tray I found this spring View attachment 131976
But couldn't find where it had come from , it was located at the back of the tray gearbox side . Any ideas ?

Thats the spring under the intake manifold motor.
