Hello fellow Audi ites couple of questions for you I own an A3 FSI 8P... — Audi A3 S3

Hello fellow Audi-ites, couple of questions for you. I own an A3 FSI 8P Sportback Attraction 2004 model, it has approx.105,000 kilometres / 65,200 miles on the clock.

First query: can anyone tell me why the P.R.N.D.S indicators on the display keep lighting up with a solid red light?

Second query: After my car kept 'stalling out & losing revs / power & the battery light came on, it turned out my secondary fuel pump which feeds the primary had died. I had that replaced on Tues. All was well until this morning when it 'stalled out' twice...once at high speed, once at low speed. And when I got home & turned off the ignition, the fan kept going for about a minute...b.t.w, apart from the battery light, there were no other warnings on the dash.

So, what's the prob...any ideas?

Thanx very much.

        It's with a heavy heart I post this. I absolutely love the looks and performance of this car but getting a baby in and out of the back is beginning to get too much. This is my first Auto/DSG and I will not be going back to manual, DSG is incredibly smooth and an absolute pleasure to drive.

        Any inspection welcome.

                  Up for sale/swap is my 2007 Audi A3 2.0TFSI Quattro S Line. As you can see from the pictures, it's had a few tasteful exterior mods carried out and a few engine mods done, with a conservative remap to 280bhp.

                  Price drop of £400 to allow new owner to get the bumper redone

                  Below is the current spec list:

                  LOBA Motorsports HPFP (bought in August, £500)

                  New HPFP can follower

                  New dual mass LUK flywheel with SACHS updated clutch

                  RS4 fuel pressure valve

                  125k miles

                  MOT to 14 June 2017

                  Oil/filter change in August at 120k, Quantum Supreme oil

                  This is an absolute gem of an A3, with enough mods and tweaks to keep it miles ahead of an 8P S3, but with a far lower insurance group and tax band and half the price! Remapped in May 2016 by PSI Tuning, VAG specialists, it's a very conservative remap to increase the life of the components fitted due to very little stress being put on them. The engine is now beyond a Revo Stage 3 spec and can easily be remapped to 350+ bhp should you be brave enough!

                  As with all cars, there are a few bits and bobs that aren't quite perfect. The alloys could ideally be doing with a repaint or touch up, no kerb marks just paint chips. There is a slight bit of laquer peel on the front bumper (VAG cars are notorious for this!), and I would personally get the bumper resprayed or relaquered ag the very least. I would get this done before sale/swap but I use the A3 as my daily driver so I just haven't got the time. Price dropped £400 to allow for a bumper respray.

                    Right ok... Due to the company of insurance. The 8l may have to go. They're being bell ends and only just changed my policy for something that happened nearly a year ago and my policy isn't even due for renewal. If anyone wants more pics I can supply them. It's done 133k it's fairly clean on the outside, mot til June I think.

                    Just a couple of problems

                    Slight water leak from heater matrix hose outlet. I bought 2 new plastic couplings for it from Audi, just haven't got round to doing them yet.

                    Also misfires Indy heavy load. It's fine if you slowly press down on the throttle but plant your foot and it starts playing silly plums. May just need new plugs

                    And finally the hazards come on every time the passenger door opens. Don't know why it's never bothered me as I always get in the drivers side lol. Nobody else hardly ever gets in it.

                    ALSO HAS FULL SERVICE HISTORY!!!

                    I'm looking for £2500 ovno

                    Number plate will be staying with me so the sale will have to wait until the plates get changed.

                      Can anyone help me please? I got rid of my a3 8l and picked up my a3 8p last night and as soon as I drove home I knew something wasn't right :/ it's a 2.0 tdi 140 s.line quattro. Ok so the gear box feels ok but as soon as I put it into 6th gear it makes this loud humming/vibration noise kind of hum..hum..hum..hum.. it's loud, almost sounds like base from the stereo (its not that BTW) and I tried it a couple of times and then didn't use it for the rest of the journey! It sounds really unhealthy I'm so hoping I haven't bought a lemon. Also, everytime I accelerate I can hear what sounds like air pissing out from somewhere. Has anyone had anything similar to this please?? Thank you in advance!

                            Hello :) Thanks for letting me into the group. I just bought my first A3 S-Line which I absolutely love. Its got a few bits I need to get sorted and one of the most annoying is this hideous (apparently factory fitted) Phone cradle, However on popping it off its mount I was dismayed to find not just a couple of screw holes in the dash, but something I could send a small child potholing down....

                            Does anybody have any idea how I can hide this?

                                  Hi all, I am looking to buy a 2005-2008 A3 2.0 TDI and I have been looking at the S Line models, Am I correct in saying that the sportback model is the only one that has the bigger rear lights (Car on the right)? I have been struggling to find a page that can tell me the difference between all of the models... So if I am looking at a 2.0L TDI Sline what are my options and what are the differences between them all? Thanks!

                                      As I am breaking my A3 now, I have spotted another one local to me. Another 04 plate TDI - This time manual (my preference) but with no RNSE but does have BOSE and cruise. Apparently running fine, but is currently SORN with no MOT.... Also, its on 265k miles :D What would you pay? Up for £700. It's also black which is my favourite colour.

                                        Hi all.

                                        Had the below for month or two. Absolutely love it, but a ton of problems unfortunately.

                                        One I thought I'd ask about, before I try and get fixed at a Garage or somewhere is the issue in the videos with the main dash screen.

                                        Both are either fully off, flash at me, faintly show the 'OK' and other text or just go rogue flashing and alsorts.

                                        Can anyone advise what the issue is, a possible fix and if it's in pretty bad shit state, or not really an issue :)

                                        Warning in advance, I apologise for my motoring ignorance, I have no clue about cars and parts, etc etc.

                                              This post is for informational purposes, perhaps it will help someone else some day.

                                              My A3 is a 2.0 TDI 140 BKD remapped to 178 bhp.

                                              I started to lose water around October of last year, it would drop from max to min in around 400 miles initially. As time went by the amount of miles it took became less for the same amount of water loss.

                                              It gradually got worse and due to it being very gradual I didn't notice other symptoms. The main one was that idle became slightly lumpy to the point I could feel the engine shake slightly once it reached operating tempetature. It didn't seem to do it when it was cold, only at operating temperature.

                                              Eventually the leak was so bad it would kick out a fair bit of white smoke when I'd just fired it up.

                                              Also from February 2016, when I had an oil change to February 2017 the oil light came on and I had to top it up with about 1.5 litres of oil.

                                              I thought it was related and feared the worst, I thought the head gasket had gone or I had a cracked or porous head.

                                              I took it to a garage and they did a pressure test on the water system and found no visible signs of leakage, they recommended I took it away and waited for it to get worse but I wasn't happy with that so they continued to diagnose the problem. Next they did a compression test and found no problems, then they did a sniff test to check for exhaust gases in the expansion tank and found nothing. They were almost 100% sure the cylinder head hadn't gone so they bypassed the water loop from the EGR cooler and I've drove it over 500 miles since without any sign of water loss. I'm told it's a temporary measure that won't be good for the engine long term, so I'm going to get a replacement. I know they can be deleted and mapped out, but I'm just going to have mine replaced. The oil loss must have been coincidence, I've done about 10k in it and lost about 1.5 litres but I'm told that these engines do drink a bit of oil. My golf tdi 130 never lost a drop, but I guess this is just a different engine.

                                              The lumpy idle makes sense because when the egr valve opened it was letting water or steam into the engine. I can't imagine if I'd have let the problem get worse that it would have been too good for the engine. I've noticed that it doesn't smoke now apart from a bit of black when I cane it.

                                                Cam cover gasket and P.c.v valve replaced.

                                                Lots of recent work carried out with receipts to prove within the last 6 months.

                                                Cambelt and water pump inc idlers and tensioners.

                                                Rear wiper delete.

                                                Most recently had a full front end respray as there were a few dings, scratches and chips. (I Have before, during and after pictures to prove this) and had full front grill painted gloss black. Looks really good and wasn't cheap.

                                                Tinted front fog lights yellow, the colours works well.

                                                most of the work carried out are common faults that no longer need addressing.

                                                Had new c.v boots a few years ago.

                                                Prob lots more that I have missed.

                                                Now there are bad points. The first one isn't really a bad point but annoying for me really. The car had an instrument cluster fault a few years ago and had to be replaced so the mileage shown is not genuine. (Mot history check will show this and I will also provide all the mot history printed out from govuk website to prove) I just want to be clear I'm not hiding this and can provide evidence for new owner. The genuine mileage is about 120k. We have done between 4-6k a year. More than welcome to check for yourself.

                                                Usual wear and tear on the interior, marks around buttons and switches, wear on seat bolster ect. General wear and tear for an 11 year old car.

Apparently an Audi cam belt should be changed every 5 years or 140k miles (my a3 is a 60 plate and has done 61k) but Ford recommends a cam belt change every 150k or 10 years whichever comes first. I don't know what to do cause can't help feeling I'm being had over.

At first I thought it's gonna disappear but it didn't. Does anyone know what could cause almost all the xmas tree to show up when I pull the handbrake? It's kinda annoying.... Also, sometimes the computer pops up 'low battery' even though I just bought a new a battery two months ago....Those two errors poped up the same time, are they related?? I cheked the battery and it's almost full and the car charges the battery while accelerating as I checked that with my friend. We give up, any help?

Been and bought a 2.0t s line today for my partner, she's wanted 1 for sometime and this came up in our budget, 2006 118k but a load of paper work for stuff done through its life. Drove perfect, and was pleasure to drive on way home for first 40 miles, getting 32 mpg as well. First noticed engine temp kept going down but would come back up to 90, thought temp sensor like the golf gti seem to have that prob. Put foot down to get through round about n engine light started flashing, then it dropped to 3 cylinders (thought bollocking, coil pack, again like her golf did), so limped last few miles home. Parked it on drive n oil pressure warning came on, checked oil, recently serviced, to its level n clean. So plugged in a fault reader and got the following.
