Picked it up today! Dead pleased with it. First plans are change the Engine oil/filter, Haldex oil/filter, and also the coolant.

I am going to try very hard to not modify it in any way Audi S3 730194

I'm still getting used to driving a slightly higher car, I keep going through soham and slowing down into second gear over speed humps when i could do them in 3rd Audi S3 Icon_lol

By the way anybody know much about the Haldex awd system? looking through the history the oil & filter on it has only been changed once in the past but VAG recommend every 20K.. im going to get it changed as soon as but just wondering if anyones heard of problems with the haldex caused through lack of servicing??

Ha yeah very nice cars to drive, alot different from my previous cars. Only had three so far though Audi S3 Icon_lol started off in a mk5 fiesta (still got it, just see the back of it in a pic) then went onto my mk2 golf and now this Audi S3 Icon_biggrin

Black could be a bad choice of colour im thinking Audi S3 Icon_eek , it gets un-believably dirty/dusty very quick. Currenty theres a CAT challenger ripping up a field next to my house and all the dust is sticking to my car like flys to fly paper Audi S3 Lol

No. 1 cylinder coil pack blew on this today Audi S3 Icon_cry drove it from soham to newmarket and back again took it steady (was running 3 cylinders Audi S3 Icon_lol ) when i got home i took it out and it must have been arcing like crazy as all the plastic had melted down onto the plug and it was piping hot! waaaayyy hotter than it normally gets Audi S3 298631

Wasn't far off causing an engine fire i'd say Audi S3 795435

Really should of had a look at it while at work but there wasn't time and i didnt think it was too serious Audi S3 Icon_rolleyes

bricks were shat. But guess im lucky it didnt happen coming home from cambridge or further away.
