Name is Ronnie, happy to be here. In April I bought a 2015 S3 with the prestige package. So far my mods include a bunch of OBDeleven stuff, an APR intake, a stage 1+ Unitronic ECU tune and a stage 1 TCU tune. I do all my own maintenance and just hit 40k miles. I intend to do the Haldex service soon as well as replace my plugs with new RS7 plugs and new coils. This is my daily and I commute about 160 miles 2 days a week to DC. Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Hey Ronnie welcome. I just did the Haldex service on mine a couple weeks ago at 18k. Just wanted to see the state of the fluid and screen. It was so clean I think the previous owner had done it some time before the 13k miles I picked the car up with. It was an easy service. I have the Neuspeed intake on mine. I really don't plan on modding the car right now it's perfect the way it is. By the way there's plenty of slack on the Haldex pump cable if you choose not to unplug it. It was no problem to get to the screen to clean it.
Someday I'd like to figure out a good way to unplug it but I just can't feel where it is.

Thanks for all the responses. Nope, no misfires yet... sounds like fowled plugs or maybe a coil pack going out? The only thing I have noticed is that the car resets to drive mode after every engine shut down. The car will say its in dynamic but it shows D mode instead of S. Occasional mis-shifts, but apparently thats common on a cold car.
