Recently I've noticed that when driving every gear all the way up to 5 at least I get flutter at regular driving in D. It's actually quite noticeable, instead of on the blow off if I stay in the throttle and just let it slowly climb up the gears each gear you hear the tutu tutu tutu. Before I make any major assumptions I'm stage 2 unitronic and I have a DV spacer never noticed it until recently (never did it) and before it only did it during hard acceleration and then let off of the throttle after boost was built up now I hear fluttering as low as 2K RPM is it my dV possibly beginning to fail or Turbo or is it something minor?

          Hey guys. Need some help on a wind noise issue at 65mph

          Hey guys! Need some help on a wind noise issue at 65mph+

          I have an issue with either the drivers side window or sunroof when highway cruising. Start to get a lot of wind noise and it's not happening on passenger side of car. I have told the dealer twice about it and they haven't been able to find any leaks or issues with the window seals etc. They also aren't allowed to drive the car at those speeds so I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue?

          Thinking to take the service advisor or tech for a ride to prove it...

            I ve had my 2017 for about two weeks now. A couple of observations

            I've had my 2017 for about two weeks now. A couple of observations:

            1)Holy brake dust, Batman!! I forgot just how nasty those front wheels can get after just a couple of days when the wheels are a light color. My last few performance cars had matte black wheels, and now I remember why I chose matte wheels each time. I believe my wheels have just moved up on

            the priority list for modification or replacement.

            2)You know, I truly miss my fire breathing 500 rwhp stick-shift beast of a track car. But, living in and around Atlanta traffic, and now having some soak time in the S3, I've gotten over it. My left leg appreciates the Audi. As for lag? As far as automatics go - this one is barely noticeable. Far quicker than any previous auto trans I've owned. They curbed the turbo lag really well also. In other terms, it's quick enough to mitigate any attempts by jerks to cut me off(ATL drivers are notorious for it).

            3)The cops don't tailgate me now, but, at stoplights, I catch people peeking into the car and scoping it out. It's not flashy in a stand-out kind of way like my last several, but it has serious finesse and people can see out of the corner of their eyes that it's something different and aesthetically pleasing. In the early morning hours I catch them checking out the gigantic google maps display. I have yet to encounter another S3 in my daily commute of 50 miles, so I guess I did good on still possessing something that is uncommon.

            4)I love the seats! I can't explain it other than they are the best fitting seats for sitting in traffic, for me anyway. They just work.

            She's getting Window tint in two weeks, and the resonator delete kit. I've blacked out the center of the front grill and will probably wrap or recolor the wheels and the mirror covers. I plan to upgrade to slotted rotors and different pads when I wear the first set out. By then I should have enough soak time in the car to decide what to do as far as any "powertrain-voiding mods" go. For now I'm just enjoying the new ride!

                Any comments on the stock 19" Continental ContiSportContact 5P? Saw the rating on Tirerack saying that it has really good traction and steering response on dry surfaces. Are they good enough for a casual track day?

                PS: heard a lot about understeering which is understandable since it's a (front wheel based) AWD. They said the new Haldex on the 17' S3 distributes 50/50 in dynamic mode and is incorporated with brake based torque vectoring. How much would this improve its track performance according to you guys' opinion or experience

                  It's Apr stage 1 and has vwr intake

                  I am getting the map removed before taking to Audi of course.

                  But would they be funny about the intake?

                  Anyone with past experience?

                  Only cause I have told them to look into gearbox fault the car showed a few weeks ago.

                  Thanks for any help. As you will get I don't want to book it in if they going to void my warranty or anything like that lol

                  Some dealers can be like its modified so airbox has caused the gearbox fault

                      Alright group, I need some opinions. There's been a lot of talk regarding the RS3 and people going that route. I'm a little different, lol. I'd like opinions on switching over to the BMW line.

                      I currently have a pre face lift S3. No mods other than springs/spacers. I wanted to go the downpipe and Stage 2 route (which I still may). However, I've really been considering the F80 M3.

                      I don't want to really go up in payment, however I love the car and how it sounds, with a lot of potential for power with jb4 as well.. Then again, if I go Stage 2 I'd be just as quick (right?) to a stock M3/4.

                      I haven't been in a tuned S3 or Golf R, so maybe I need to find someone locally if there is anyone, to take a ride in their car. This is just some things that I've been battling in my head lol. What do you all think?! Thanks for your input too!

                        Got my TTE525R on with a UM tune. No fueling mods yet. The car actually scares me a little now. You run through 3rd gear almost as quick as 2nd, and if you're paying attention to the road, it gives you the impression that you just shifted to 3rd. Next thing you know, you're going into a moderately sharp turn at 90. Time to relearn the car...

                          So you can get the RS3 with 235/35 or 255/30 tires in the front and 235/35 in the rear (staggered). I know this is to mitigate understeer in theory. But what will this feel like in practice on a FWD bias car? Is it worth it? I'm thinking of beefing up the tires all the way around instead of going staggered.

                            A few articles on the A3, S3, RS3, TTRS from recent magazines attached here. Probably not readable on a computer. Use your mobile device instead so you can expand. Check "replies" for more articles/pages... Interesting the head of Audi RS division says to skip mag ride in the TTRS and get the "fixed suspension". Other notables: next platform will debut in 2020 in the USA. Alum block is 57 < the former iron block. The RS3 article sucks, it's just propaganda, no test drive yet. It'll be another month or two before we start getting the nitty gritty on the RS3 saloon. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy the reads and the rest of your Sunday.

                              Got an infraction ticket for modified exhaust and no front plate. Apparently CA does not accept the plate on the front dash or zip tied any more. The officer asks what I did to fix my exhaust and I told him I added a catalytic converter even though I am still catless hehe. With the bullx valve remote in hand, I turn my car on with the off button pressed down. He brings out his superior to verify if it is ok. He says of course it's ok... this guy

                                  I haven't had a chance to crawl under mine yet, but did the exhaust change in any way for the 2017s vs. prior? I'm asking because I was about to pick up the resonator delete kit, which as I understood it - consists of basically bolts on one end, and you'd cut the other end and then clamp it up. However, I had a sidebar with my sales rep yesterday when I stopped by the dealership to pick up my spare key, and he stated on the 2017s it was just bolts on both ends, no cutting. Is that accurate? Because I don't want to order the wrong kit (if there even is a "wrong kit" in this scenario.)

                                        Im looking at 19x9.5et40 245/35/19 setup. Checked specs w/ online calculators and it shows a 14mm increase poke over 18x8et45 225/40/18 +10mm/12.5mm spacers setup and I don't think that will jive with my fenders :'(

                                        EDIT: I'm somewhat set on the wheel specs but will consider different size tires.

                                        Some of you here run that setup Kamil Pawlak :P Who else runs something similar and how do they fit? How low are you and any rubbing or fender issues?

                                            Some bar talk regarding a reinvestment. Going from S3 to RS3.

                                            Happy owner of a Stage 2 Audi S3-8V, 15,000 miles, warranty good until January 2019. The RS3 was on my radar last year and earlier in this year. Then I started reading the reviews. They were not good. Are there any reviews of the facelift RS3-8V yet?

                                            For someone with a higher mileage S3, perhaps it's time for a new car later this year or early next year, due to you not wanting to drive an Audi sans warranty. You will have a trade in/resale value somewhere in the $26k to $30k range (when the RS3 is arriving here). I think the RS3 is going to be $57k to $62k, so around twice the value of the used S3.

                                            IMO Audi A3/S3 8P to 8V was a huge improvement on many levels. Completely different interior "look", very modern. Lighter, more power, more efficient. We never actually had the S3 (in the USA) until the 8V came out. But when we compare the Mark6 Golf R with the S3-8V or Mark7 Golf R... obviously, the same argument can be made... lighter, more power, etc.

                                            Audi will typically send the RS version of a model to the USA after it's been in EU for a few years, right? How long with the 8V last? Is it wise for someone to lose a bunch of money, upgrading from S3-8V to RS3-8V? Most of the car is the same. Obviously more power/sound, more unique, etc. But the technology and the look is almost the same. If I could hand someone $10k to make the upgrade, I probably would. But to reinvest an additional $30k to get into the RS3, then get it ready for the road, it's a lot of money to switch badges. Especially when you remind yourself that you've also spent money on a tune, suspension, more (on your current S3) which makes it handle better than an RS3 would (even with aftermarket suspension) due to weight/handling dynamics.

                                            The springs struts on the S3-8V, both standard and mag ride, are terrible. I assume they will not be any better in the RS. The front tire/wheel package on the RS3 is wider than the rear to help mask the ridiculous understeer b/c of the additional weight and the horrible suspension. Will Audi perhaps "get it right" in the next generation? Will they figure out how to move away from haldex, at least in the S/RS line? Is it conceivable that Audi could figure out a way to get proper quattro into the smaller wheelbase cars, the transverse-engine cars. "Well, no, it's always been that way." Who cares what it's always been like. I'm not into history today, I am into the future. CAN it be done? An RS3 or TTRS with proper quattro? For that, I would upgrade mid generation. That is a huge difference maker!

                                              Hey Gang,

                                              Vehicle is in for service and they've found that my gauge cluster is rattling. turns out, the RPM needle is the culprit. In order to replace it, the car will need to undergo the dreaded Audi "Spec Actual" scan - partly in that they'll need the data from the current cluster to copy-paste over to the new one. So here's my question:

                                              I have Eurodyne Stage 1 - and I have the ability to use the "flash back to stock file" feature with the flash tool. I do know that this is a generic file Eurodyne has used, similar to APR and GIAC. So, does anyone know for a fact if the "Spec Actual" scan will pick up/flag a vehicle that has flashed back to stock on one of these generic files?

                                              Also, I had the dealer change a few features in the VAGCOM - Added oil temperature and needle sweep during start up. The tech is also concerned that these changes may be picked up in the scan and cause an issue.

                                                ATTN: 2017 S3 Owners w/ Unitronic Tune or any tune for that matter.. I got the 1+ ECU and TCU Tune at about 2k miles. I'm currently at the 5k Mile mark and am thinking if I need to change my oil before the scheduled 1st oil change at 10k.

                                                The maintenance schedule for the car says 10k for the first oil change. I have trouble believing that it can goto 10k without an oil change since I've driven a bunch of older turbo cars.

                                                Let me know your thoughts. Pic of my Navarro Blue S3 on the day of delivery for attention :)

                                                    Had to replace the battery in my 2015 S3. Its only 2 yrs 3 months old. Hmmm never had to replace any batteries in any of my previous Audis. Tech said it could depend how long better sits before sold. I said my car was a custom build so that wasn't the issue. I also have had to replace the battery on my key. Never had to do that either til now. Looks like the brand of batteries they used were sub-standard in my opinion. Anyone have these battery issues?

                                                      Have any of you guys come across DSC Sport? They create controllers and essentially re-write the programming for the suspension settings. By reading in additional data from the ECU they are able to reprogram the car so that it dynamically self adjusts based on inputs from the road and you the driver. It ends up creating a smoother ride and at the same time a better handling vehicle. Since the MR shocks essentially don't have valving, the compression and rebound are basically controlled through programming. There's a ton of reviews on the Porsche forums that go on and on about how much better the car rides and how much the handling improved.

                                                      Revised suspension settings are tied into the Driver Mode button on the dash, but they also grant us, the user, full adjustability. So you're buying revised shock tunes for a more comfortable ride and a tune to make the car corner better, and then you have the ability to tweak the settings yourself. Digging deeper I found that they take advantage of the accelerometer in the car so that you can adjust the shocks for braking, acceleration and even cornering. If I'm stabbing the brakes I can tune the shocks to stiffen up. Under acceleration I can let the car squat and grip. In a corner where side loading is high, we could stiffen the outer rear shock to get the rear end to come around more naturally through the turn. As someone who has Ohlins, Motons and Advance Design shocks on my toy cars, having this kind of adjustability that works dynamically without the driver needing to make physical adjustments at the shock is a dream come true.

                                                      I reached out to the company and they stated that if we showed enough interest in the controller they would be able to get it on to the development table sooner. Pair this controller with some sleeve overs and some camber plates and you could have a really great suspension setup that really works well.

                                                      If you're at all interested in any of this fill out the form at the link: http://eepurl.com/cCaF5T.

                                                      The attached video is of their complete kit, suspension controller and upgraded shocks. Its pretty amazing how stable the coffee is going over all the bumps, pot holes, expansion joints and so on. Its possible to get our MR shocks working right with the right tuning!

                                                        Tried too many suggestions regarding the left hand mirror to prevent the blind spot, but i noticed that mqb platform is fixing the mirror too close to the driver for some engineering issue and it is closer by 10 cm to the driver from ALL other cars.

                                                        What options do i have out there? I had TOO many close calls on the highway to ignore the fact that i am not going to get used to toggle my sight between mid and left hand mirrors.

                                                          I am experiencing a DSG anomaly and I'm curious if anyone else has ever experienced anything similar. So I started noticing this in the past week or so. I'll be driving in manual mode at a constant speed, and I feel the car kinda lurch forward. Not a huge jerk but enough for me to feel it. It happens randomly and at no specific speed. The rpms do not jump, engine runs smooth. It also appears to happen even when the car is not at full temperature. So say in a ten minute drive, it will happen two maybe three times. Shifting is normal. Searching forums the issue seems to be caused by a faulty mechatronics unit, but I'm hoping that's not the case. Thoughts? PFA

                                                            Key fob question. How long should battery last in our keys?

                                                            edit: answer by Jason Treadaway I left the key in the car overnight for two nights, which drained the battery in the key.

                                                            original story: I left my key in the car all weekend (garage/55-60 degrees). I normally don't leave it in there though. Got in the car today, "key not in car". Had to get my backup key. Tried the old key again a few hours later, no dice. I have owned my car a little over two years. 15,000 miles. Never had any issue with the key before. No warning that the battery is getting low (as I've seen on other vehicles recently). Does the dealer replace the battery as a free service? I wonder if it's something else. Is our key married to things like Drive Select and radio station presets?

                                                                  I'm having a little issue that I can't seem to figure out, maybe one of you had this problem.

                                                                  I like to use the dictation feature on my iphone (speak to text) when driving and connected to Bluetooth. Only problem when is when I go to use this feature on my iPhone in my car it won't allow me to speak into the phone, it brings up the Siri thing waiting for you to speak but never captures my voice, as show in the picture just a blank line that never captures voice.

                                                                  In my girlfriends A3 it's no problem, works like a charm. Not sure if there is a setting that needs to be changed? I've looked everywhere in the car Bluetooth settings, can't find anything.
