Hi, new here (can't lie, safari made it impossible to register due to these google safesite warnings, but got onto chrome)

I have a 2005 Audi A3 3.2 Quattro (DSG) S-tronic in black, it's the "s-line"

I get the same warnings in Chrome.

Another new person, recently bought a 2005 A3 2.0T DSG sportback for the wife's new car. Just done the servicing stuff so far (DSG Service, cam follower) and upgrading the diverter valve to the later model piston type so far.

Have a few more mods planned (intake, exhaust, tune) to improve the top end power a bit and learning about these cars. I've come from a Subaru/Nissan background and getting a bit of a shock at some of the prices for Audi bits in NZ. So far buying stuff from ECS tuning in the states which has worked out well.

Will be keen to hear what reflashes people are running on here (but not going to pay APR NZ's prices, yikes!).

Finally got around to cleaning, taking pictures & posting.

My 2005/6 a3 3.2 Quattro DSG. goes like stink now that half the parts are new.





Changes i've made in the last three months:
Full DSG Box rebuild, mechatronics, new clutch pack, new rods, premium oil, (yes, cost about what the car was worth, but the box just failed on me, oh well at least it's under warranty.)
All new discs & pads all around
all new tyres
new air filter (k&n, panel)
new engine mount, spark plugs, service, aircon service /etc.
engine flush, run on 98 since.

It's a great car, they're starting to get really hard to find in good condition.


$$$ ouch!, could've bought a late S3

The above could be for sale if anyone's interested,

I can't deny the urge to get a RS4 sensible "family / dog" car for much longer.

Spoke with HaNs today on the phone, top guy!

I've been on the fence about keeping / selling this car for a little while, In some respects it's been the bain of my existance, but on other occasions it's been some of the most fun i've had. HaNs pretty much swayed me towards keeping it, I was misinformed about the upgrade path of this car (that it didn't exist)

I'm going to see what HaNs can do with an ECU remap to start with.

HaNs quoted me a surprisingly low price for a 350hp turbo install/upgrade.
I'll track down a set of nice wheels, probably S3 wheels (in black)
and seeing as i'm already committed, I'll track down a decent shop who can do an outside only respray (and minor repair [one dent, one scuff] )

If anyone can recommend anyone who deals in wheels, or paint.. I'd appreciate it.


Thanks,
2005 Audi A3 3.2 Quattro S

This has gone one step further since yesterday.

it's going to be very exciting, stupidly costly. the result is going to be some deranged RS3.. will create a thread seperately i think.

Nice car. Do you have any more pics? Have you considered doing an S3 front on it?

Looking good! Bilstein B12 is a package with lowering springs and matched dampers. It's highly rated. Barry had this setup on his B5 RS4.

Sold the wheels actually, wasn't happy running spacers. Back to the good ol' Ronal 5 spoke 18s.

I bought the suspension as a package from a seller on eBay.de. It's 40mm lower than standard, which translates to about a 15-20mm drop over the sport suspension which comes on the 3.2s.

I've looked into front end options but as mine is pre-facelift I would need a new bonnet, bumper, grille, the works. Too much work. :)
