      If you don't replace the oil drain plug with a permanant solution, Audi oil change kits from some aftermarket vendors come with a new plug.

      The Audi USA A3/S3 brochure, available in the Audi Library iPad app, states that the AWD system is 90/10 in "normal driving" and up to 100% power can be sent to the front or to the rear.
    3. A3 Launch Events Nationwide in USA Planned for Tomorrow April 3

      Completely agree! It would have really set the A3 apart from the competition.

      Wow. My dealer here in Central NJ went from around 48 over the weekend to 65 as of today. :eek:
      They have a whopping 2 P+ and 1 Prestige model! Their launch event is Thursday night.

      I occasionally run 300V in my Forester turbo, but not sure I would consider any race oil as being "better" than an oil that meets ACEA A3/B3, VW502/505, Porsche A40, MB229.3/5, and BMW LL01. Yes,...

      Not sure when production changed, and new bottles are just starting to pop up, but I wouldn't worry about stocking up since the oils meet the same specs. There are still a few crazy out folks out...

      That GC UOA is great and it's hard to argue with the results, IMO. :thumbup: If you had an oil pressure gauge, and saw a problem with op, then one could say that you need a thicker oil.

      Of course, if you monkey around with anything like that you have a good chance of interfering with the Powertrain warranty. A 3.2 Q5 owner at audiworld was not able to get carbon build-up covered...

      There is no truth in what you've heard about Mobil1 0W-40. Check the Euro and UOA's forums at bobistheoilguy.com and you'll find a few uoa's there. As far as finding out if there are any...

      :D

      Yes, those are both good oils, except don't lump Mobil1 0W-30 in with Castrol 0W-30 since M1 0W-30 doesn't meet Euro specs. And just to throw another choice out there, Pennzoil Ultra 5W-40...

      How is Audi able to get an electric motor to power the rear wheels in the Shooting Brake Concept, but not in an A3? :confused: Is it a space issue or a weight issue?

      Audi Junkie's VOA that you posted is out of date. Mobil1 10W-30 HM no longer has those levels of Boron and the detergent/dispersant package has been changed to one that now favors much more magnesium...

      Just throwing in another vote for a gas/diesel Sportback A3/S3. I actually like the look of the sedans, but I'm really not a sedan fan.

      You're saying A3 alone on Mobil1 10W-30 "High Miles" beats the A3 + VW, MB, BMW approvals of GC, BC and Mobil1 (and Porsche A40 for BC and M1). Hardly.

      Go for a test drive! I test drove the A5/S5, and love the way that it looks, but I like small cars and it just felt too big to me.

      The new Mobil1 is not good at sea level? This may be one of the funniest oil posts that I've seen in a long time.

      I use French oil in my Japanese car. Hope it doesn't blow up. :)
