    Audi A3 2.0 Tdi Sport. Classic mini.
  1. Throttle response

    I did find there was oil on the air filter. I was aware the crank case vent went back into the aire filter but didn't realise it would gunk the tb that bad. Anyway, I've decided to fit a catch tank (hopefully stop the oil) and an upgraded panel filter, probably a k&n. Clean up the tb and get the throttle position checked. Hopefully it'll improve.
  2. Throttle response

    Im probably going to clean out the throttle body anyway because it looks oily. What kind of gasket is between the tb and engine ie paper or rubber. Will I need to reprogram the tb once unplugged?
  3. Throttle response

    I've recently bought the gti but only just noticed it. It's the same whether it's hot or cold. Just seems slow at retuning to idle. Much slower than any other car I've owned, and especially as the gti is supposedly responsive I imagine something is wrong. I've changed the coil and leads recently but doubt that's caused anything
  4. Throttle response

    Hey guys. On my gti I'm having what seems to be poor throttle response. Whilst revving in neutral, the revs (once off the accelerater) drop very slowly back to idle. Any ideas what may cause this? Was thinking I'd clean out the throttle body as it looks a little grubby. Maybe fit an updated panel filter? Any suggestions? If I remove the throttle body, will I need to reprogram it? What type of gasket sat between the engine and throttle body (paper/rubber)? Thanks

  7. Hi. As title really, how do you split the front lower gti bumper from the top? My gti is lowered and I caught the front driver corner on those b*****d square speed bumps. It has caused a noticeable gap to appear between the upper and lower bumper on the driver side. I basically want to reduce the gap but wanted to know if it's attached by a clip or screw, and whether it can simply be tightened to reduce the gap. Thanks
