      Does HPA still make their Haldex controllers? They used to be a great way to make a Haldex car way fricking better.

        Great car op. Make sure you change the diff fluid every 15k, and I’d hesitate to tune the engine. Audi isn’t expecting the RS5 to have much more power due to electrification which means that the new diff is built with its current power level in mind.

      What is Audi's most reliable engine in their current lineup

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        Hard to say because there's a big difference between trouble free and reliable. The current engines are gonna be the 2.5 in the RS3 1.4 in A3 e-tron, 2.0T, 3.0T, 2.9T, 4.0TT. they will all have their issues most common I see on older engines is the high pressure fuel pump leaking into the crankcase. This causes a list of issues mostly PCV breather failures. I'd say the most reliable is going to be the 2.0 but expect to replace water pump and thermostat housing twice to get to 140k miles. The 3.0 and 2.9 have huge issues with leaking water pumps and they commonly get their water pump solenoids clogged and end up with overheating issues. Older 3.0s with the supercharger love to chip the intake valve on the #5 cylinder for no apparent reason anywhere from 100k to 160k miles. If you want an older Audi and want some coverage warranty wise you're going to want an A3 with the 1.8 engine as they have a PZEV warranty that is something like 10 year 100k mile and will cover check engine light shit. The A3 E-trons also get that coverage along with hybrid SQ5s

        I’ve got an RS5 with a 4.2. It’s been issue free but should I be worried about anything going forward? Have to decide if I want a warranty or not.

        Also are the e-Trons a nightmare?

        Also would you get a Q7 with a 3.0T or 2.0T?

        >RS5 with 4.2V8
        Literally only seen one in my time there so far. RS7 It came in for cam crank correlation fault at 150k miles. Customer loved the car and had us install new pistons and redo the timing chains. Shit was nuts. Something like 18k.
        The fully electric E-trons are frickin bad dude. One of the senior techs was crying because he's replaced more electric drive motors than ICE motors in his 40 years as a tech
        And the Q7 is so dog shit slow with the 2.0 you can contemplate, plan and commit suicide before you reach the end of the on ramp. But then again the 3.0 will start pissing out the water pump at 60k miles so pick your poison

        I might be able to help bro I have one.
        Mind you, its the last of the B8 before the B8.5
        What mileage?
        I've had mine for three years, put 30,000 kilometers on it (59,000 - 81,0000)
        About 15,000 have been on the harder side of driving.
        Have a mechanical warranty due to end this year.

        Keep in mind, its a GT car, not a track car, don't treat it like one as it's not made for that.

        When I bought it, it had a gear position sensor die - Your car would show a gearbox fault, and be in limp mode. When it died, it died in rush hour traffic until i could cycle the startup a few times to get it off the road and drive it home.

        Things to look out for;
        Gear position sensor & mechatronics unit - (drop the trans and pricey job labour wise)

        Suspension bump stomps, and bushings perish quickly if you drive it hard/track it.

        I have ceramic front brake option but I've heard the steels die reasonably fast through track use.

        Other than that, I've semi-abused mine and it's been fine. Just had to have lower control arms and wheel bearings done as the roads are shit here.

        Search for a site called spareto - they are Estonian and use ChatGPT for their marketing but the parts are cheap and fast to ship. I've had no issues with them.

        Keep it serviced, and keep up with maintenance and you're fine.

        Spastic and forgot to add - Prior to the last 3 months of my 3 year ownership, I never had to use the warranty except for the lower control arms and wheel bearings.
        Luckily gear position sensor was still within the dealer warranty so that was free thank God.
        Mine's been relatively trouble free for a euro.
        Warranty's are murphy's law - Have one and never have issues or go without a warranty and have every issue under the sun.
        Mind you, my ownership has spanned the first major service points up until the cusp of the second major service point so I've been trouble free.
        Seen a couple for sale in my area up over 180,000 kms so that gives me hope.

        Timing chain replacement is an engine out job since it's at the firewall end of the motor.
        Don't ask, Audi was on crack then.
        If you ever need to do it, that's when you swap headers as well as those are engine out too.
        Get a warranty, you won't regret it.

          Thanks for the post appreciate it. My warranty is up in a few weeks after 1 year of no issues. I’ll plan on renewing. Frankly I have cash to repair make stuff but I don’t want to hear it from the wife if something big happens. I’ve never had an Audi issue in years except S6 turbos but Audi covered it.

          For me, it’s been issue free. Weirdly the TPMS and the trans are sharing a relay or something and when I got new tires the light when on and I had only one clutch until I reset TPMS and reset the car. Weird mystery but no issues again.

          The low pressure fuel pump is failing slowly so I know it’s going to need done at some point. If it’s not and the fuel tank is low it has trouble starting.
          Those are actually the only issues I know of for the car that are frequent below 120k miles. The timing chain tensioners are not an issue on this car line the 4.2 S5s.
          A few other things I’ve noticed.
          The spoiler and doesn’t like low battery.
          The rear bumper squeaks if one of the nuts gets loose.

          My rear right suspension is starting to creak so you have a point there.

          Also, I disagree about it being a track car for a few reasons.
          1. It shares an oil dump system with the GT3 R8.
          2. Stephen Reil himself did the promos for the car back when it launched on the track and said as much
          3. It was tuned over 10k Nurburgring miles
          4. The brakes are straight off the R8
          Also the rotors suck. They weigh 10 lbs less or something than normal ones but they aren’t mirrored so one always gets hot and warps. I replaced with gyrodisc which weighs less and costs less. I’m waiting for PAGID racing street + pads to come out for our car, but it may be later this year when I talked to the rep. In May just use yellows but they are loud when cold. Make my wife mad.
          Truly one of the best Audis of all time imo. I’ve owned and tracked a few Audis and many BMWs and few Porsches and a C8.

            [...]
            Also, the tech at my dealer told me tbe RS5 DCT doesn’t have the mechatronic issue nearly as often as the S5s, and also I forgot the mention it has additional cooling on the DCT vs the S5.
            It’s really really over engineered which makes it very track friendly imo.

            I’ll still renew the warranty bc shit happens but I have a feeling it won’t be a problematic car.
            I change the oil every 5k and do the trans and diff every 30k.
            Also, any thoughts on carbon cleaning?

            Ah sounds like mine might be lower mileage as I haven't encountered those issues, and the battery is always in good health.
            Ah, I was mainly referring to it being an 1800kg car (mine has the sunroof so maybe more although I have the recarro bucket seat option so maybe balances out the weight) and some of the suspension components perishing quickly after using it on track.
            Like I said though, abysmal road quality where I'm at so maybe that's the cause.
            I have the R8/Gallardo ceramic front option so I can't comment with first hand experience on the rotors but everyone I've spoken to - Rs4/7/6s etc have issues with the steels.
            Maybe I'm just shit on a track hence why I don't perceive it to be a track car - I'll stick my hand up and be accountable to that.
            It's my first AWD so maybe I'm trying to treat it like a RWD.
            Regarding carbon cleaning, apparently if you actually use the car up to redline somewhat frequently it can mitigate the need for carbon cleaning as often.
            It's apparently when you daily it like a grandma never reaching that 4.5/5k space that it really starts to foul up.

            Oh bro 100% agree, I love it. Great trunk space, great motor, great looks, practical - two people can fit in the back... they'll hate getting in and out but they do fit.. and sounds amazing!
            Worst case scenario, Red Mist Racing do a bolt on trans cooler depending on the climate you're in. I'm in a cooler environment so don't see the heat burgers in the south get

      What are the most common problems you've seen with the 8Y RS3's? Do you recommend following dealer service intervals?

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        A bit too early to tell, the only thing I'd say is the oil change intervals are too long on all the Audi engines. 10k miles is a bit ridiculous for how much stress the oil is under. I'd do 5k if I owned one but 7k is perfectly reasonable

        https://i.imgur.com/849ezRH.jpeg

        Gonna get one of these for maximum crooozing. 3.0 TDI, 4.2 TDI, 3.0 supercharged and 4.0TT are available. I think the 3.0 supercharged is the most reliable?

        I think the only problems with those is usual direct injection issues and maybe the chains.

        The TDI motors are unkillable and they have a long warranty extension on emissions equipment due to the dieselgate scandal so those are a solid choice for reliability. The 3.0 supercharged is a great choice but keep up on oil changes as oil consumption will cause carbon buildup and burn a valve

        The 4.0T’s issues are covered by Audi. Turbo screen/Turbos to 120k, PCV valve to $100k?

        Like the other guy said, it needs 5k oil changes, and make sure the trans fluid is changed on schedule. Great car considering Audi is owning the problems it has.

        Can't say for certain. I don't think I've ever had a TDI A4 in my bay. I've had a TDI A3 in my bay, the thing was pretty clapped out at 140k miles and it needed an intake manifold. The customer refused to replace it and ended up clogging the DPF and at that point it was given to a diesel specialist tech. Drove fine otherwise
