  1. custom remaps

    Thanks for the replies Mook and silentandy. I am definitely going to do this What sort of BHP and Torque gains have you seen? I would imagine 270ish BHP and 300ish torques?
  2. custom remaps

    Hi silentandy, Could you give some more information about the work you have had done on your car? I have an A3 2.0 tfsi and am considering taking it to aps tage 3 as you have done with your gti. I'm interested in exactly what work you had done, the performance gains you have - is the power delivery like stock so it is still very linear? I'd also like to know how much it all cost if you don't mind. Ta.
  3. Hi, My A3 went in for a service this week at the dealers. I was expecting the brake fluid to be changed as the car is now two years old and the service manual states that the brake fluid should be changed every two years. However it was not changed and when I questioned this the response I was given is that on my particular year and model of car (56 plate MY07 A3 Sportback) the first brake fluid change is not due until 3 years and then it will be every 2 years from then on. Is there anybody on here who could confirm whether this is true as it sounds a little strange to me?

    I will be there I will be sitting down in one of the stands along the pit straight. What time would you folks recommend to get there? I will be driving but I have some allocated seating so did not think it would be too much of a rush?
  6. £12k to spend.

    Have you considered a Focus ST? You can pick up higher mileage examples now for around 12k. For example I'm sure this one could be haggled down a little: http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/sales/279425.htm
  7. MKVGTi `v` A3 20T ???

    I had it narrowed down to these two cars as well when deciding what to get next. I opted for the A3 and have not regretted it one bit. I think the A3 is a class above the golf in terms of quality, this is especially evident in the interior. Ultimately, yes the GTI is probably the more fun car. To me the difference in fun was too small for it to matter. Test drives are the only best way to decide so let us know how you get on. If I was chosing again now, I would go for the ED30. That engine with the potential of an easy 300 bhp would just edge it above all the other factors for me!

  13. Opinions on badgeless cars

    [ QUOTE ] Debadging only works when you're making a fast car (eg M3/S4/55 AMG/RS4/6 etc) look discreet. Debadging a 1.9TDI etc just makes you look like a wannabe! [/ QUOTE ] I agree. Problem is most debadged cars I see tend to be of the 1.9 TDI variance.
  14. 2.0TDi cut out on start up

    Not experienced this myself. My first thoughts for somewhere to look would be to check if the glow plugs are warming up properly before you start up.
  15. Audi S3

    CarMad - As an overall package which car did you prefer? The S3 or the Sportback?
