I managed to put 6 liters of lead replacement petrol in my 2009 s3 and ran the bike afterwards (don't ask why). The bike seems to run fine, but the right (as you sit on it) exhaust (Arrow street legal) is much hotter and has a funny smell coming out of it. Did I bugger up the cat, is still safe to run the bike or do I need to take it to the shop asap. I have a 4 day biking holiday starting this Monday...

Oh man, your screwed. Time to rebuild the motor. If you lucky, the heads are just in need of some new hardened valve seats. Leaded isn't as big of a problem. Your very fortunate you didn't run gas mixed with Ethenol through it or I would have to buy your bike for a dollar from you just to take it off your hands........ Don't sweat it. Your bike will be fine.
