My '01 S3 has 38k on the clock & smells like it's running rich. It's got a TORS hi-mount carbon wrapped race can that's got about 37k on in--never been repacked. K&N filter w/the appropriate map (a long time ago) from the dealer. Real black @ the exhaust & I can smell fuel at idle. Any suggestions?

I seem to have a similar situation with my 00 Daytona. Haven't found anyone that knows anything about it. How is your gas mileage?

3 things I can think of to check. First Clean your filter, then let it idle through a temp cycle. If its still running rich have your dealer reload your map. If its still not leaned out, make sure your O2 sensor is clean and working properly. Actually that too is probably best done by your mechanic.

Gas mileage is about the same--approx. 160 miles on a full tank. I cleaned the air filter not too long ago & it didn't seem excessively dirty @ the time. May just take it in to the shop. Thanks for the replies.
