Oh yes it's been ages since we've had one of these bad boys!!!
Bear in mind ive always known that a mapped 8L S3 is about the same as an unmapped 8P S3 - and so on my way back home from Audi driver.....driving quite calmly i might add
Firstly an A8 followed me from the track, no idea what engine it was just that it was one of the newer buses, regardless he did a good job of trying to keep up...not quite managing it though on several stretches, although he was braver than me in the corners as i didn't know the area that well
Secondly just before hitting the M4 a new Leon Cupra (2.0T?) cut across me on the lights, feeling the love i promptly followed the lead he was so obviously going to take upon a green light - all the way from standing start to the bottom of the slip road i stuck to him, not sure if i had anything left tbh cos there wasnt anywhere i could overtake, he then gave up, i pulled along side to witness a grump grumpy mister
Then thirdly and ignoring all the suited up lane hogging tail ends further up the road.... i witnessed another S3 in front of me (imagine that), undertook a big S class who was hogging the lane when there was nothing in front at all for a good stretch of mway, the chap in the S class(58 plate) was extremely annoyed making extreme hand gestures to the chap in the S3 sitting on his boot, he really was quite rude, then eventually waved him off as if to say try and get away if you can..... what can i say, they disappeared, the S3 pulled a lead of about 10-15 car lengths then the distance remained constant - they must have been doing at least 140 mph before the Merc gave up.....i wouldnt have imagined an S3 could do that speed though!!
