I have Sept 2002 S3 (225bhp and 24K miles) and since December I have
had 4 breakdowns, two where the engine management went into
maintenance mode on the motorway, one where the coil packs failed and
one where the throttle body caused error codes and the car would not
run right. Audi are puzzled and seem unable to even find the root
cause of the problems and it has resulted in the car being off the
road for a month this year.
I am very disillusioned with the car and am cancelling my lease early.
Has anybody else had any problems with an S3 or the 225 engine in a
Would welcome any feedback
