Oh well, looks like I will be saving a few dollars then. Maybe i'll just paint flames on the side to make it go faster instead.

intakes and exhaust would be the first port of call i'd imagine, but may not yield much for the $.

Yeah an exhaust and intake would be your best bet. However the Standard Audi systems are quite good.

yeah, pay to check if it shares the same systems as the 2.0 tfsi or s3.
if not, could be worth getting a custom.


failing that, you could probably do a straight trade for a 2001 S3 if you get bored.. a lot more ponies and potential ponies in one of those.

Hi everyone, I've just become the recent and proud owner of an Imola yellow S3.  Currently attempting to bait cops and terrorise old ladies around the Dunedin area.  I'm not very good at it though. :(



There are a few minor issues that have come up with it that I need some help with because I'm still not too familiar with what is 'normal' for this car.  I'm looking forward to finding some answers and avoid being ripped off by garages when I need to take it in.

2001/S3/1.8T/silver/face lift body and interior (154kw motor)

I would like to upgrade the chip but can't justify it as it goes pretty well as it is.

I would rather have a yellow or red one!

So, remapped my 2000 S3 and the turbo blew 3 days later. Replaced the turbo and decided to move on. After considering a Golf GTi or R32 I have gone with a 2007 S3. I was pretty set on a manual and wanted the extra horses stock.
Interesting how consistent Audi are with their interiors, very easy to go from the old to the new, everything in the same place.
Enjoying it and considering remap/suspension upgrade but more than a little gun shy after my last experience.
How many 8P S3 owners are there on the forum?
