This throttle controller is suited for Audi A3 8L, 8L1 (1997 - 2004)
Rather than a traditional accelerator cable, many modern vehicles use 'fly by wire' throttle technology. This system relies on a sensor that measures the pedal pressure and position and sends a signal to the vehicle's engine computer which converts to acceleration. Many of these fly by wire systems have a noticeable delay. iDRIVE allows you to tune the signal from the accelerator pedal with multiple inbuilt settings to ensure you find a setting that suits your driving style, although there are other products on the market that can offer this performance.
So what makes iDRIVE different?
iDRIVE includes an automatic control function that changes the level of throttle performance based on pedal pressure. So if you are in traffic and accelerating gently the iDRIVE will select setting 1. If you are accelerating hard to overtake, towing a heavy trailer, or just having fun the iDRIVE will select 9. The result is the smoothest aftermarket control module on the market. We are so confident you will love your iDRIVE if you don't we will give you your money back.

Performance exhausts are designed to increase power and noise adding to the overall experience of your vehicle. This is achieved through easier “flow” of exhaust gasses and pressures exiting the engine. As a result of easier exhaust flow, the engine of your vehicle has the capacity for increased pressure resulting in an increase of power. Exhaust gases leaving your engine, provide much more capacity to produce power. To gain the most power from your engine, the best option is to complete a full exhaust upgrade (engine back or turbo back).
What Size Catback Should I Buy?
One of the most common questions we get. What size catback exhaust should I get. If you’re after the loudest sound then a 3”catback exhaust sytem is the best option. Not only will you benefit with the best sound, if you plan to work on your engine you will gain further performance gains compared to a 2.5”.
The benefits of a 2.5” system is that they’re more suited for the street and casual cruising. Not too quite and not too loud.
What Size Headers Should I Buy?
Bigger, isn’t always better in this case.
1 3/4" headers are suited for highly worked on engines and provide high flow. You will also see high performance gains and a slightly better and louder note. With both 1 ¾” and 1 7/8” headers you should hear more cracks and pops.
With 1 7/8” headers these are more suited to motors utilising force induction, for example a supercharger. There shouldn’t be much difference with sound and performance compared to 1 ¾” it mostly depends on the engines upgrades.
What Material Exhaust Should I Buy?
This is all depends on how long you’re going to keep the car. If you plan on keeping your car for five years, then Stainless Steel is the best option in comparison to other materials.
Warranty periods on Stainless Steel exhaust last for five years, were as other materials warranties are two years.
What Systems Are Direct Fit?
Majority of systems from XFORCE, Di Filippo, Manta, Msa, Ballistic are direct bolt. Below are some noted fitment issues with products:
Headers – some components of the engine may need to removed. Please see some examples below
Headers - VE/VF steering shaft needs to be removed to install headers
Headers - HSV GTS GEN-F is a tight squeeze and 1 3/4” headers are recommended over 1 7/8”
XFORCE Chrysler 300C catback – custom cat section needs to be fabricated
XFORCE Nissan 350z/370z – may require more labour than usual
XFORCE Statesman – may require more labour than usual
XFORCE exhaust tips, require more time to be aligned properly
What's the Difference Between Exhaust Systems?
The most comprehensive performance upgrade for your exhaust
Generally replaces the headers, turbo manifold, cat converters, mufflers and piping all in one go
Streamlines the entire exhaust system for optimal flow
The most common and price-conscious exhaust upgrade
Connects to your vehicle using the stock catalytic converter, replacing the mufflers and piping that follow
Gives a modest performance boost by streamlining the air flow as opposed to more restrictive stock tubes and mufflers
