    The letter 'S' and the number '3'

    There's a smugness when you tell someone you have an S3, sounds 100x better than A3!

    Yeh I get that, "Still got the A3?" Hmmmm.... * Quieter voice* "It's an S3...".

    I like how I can do 150 miles without stopping and get out and feel like I've just gone round the corner, comfortable and quiet - prehaps due to my standard suspension and exhaust!

    Reasons to love your S3

    What the hell is going on here?! There shouldn't be a lock on the drivers side, passenger side only. Plus Dave, have you wrapped your rear lights?

    I was looking at my car yesterday thinking I could do with getting another set of spacers to fill my arches.

    Oh and I'm too sure if I love my S3 at the moment........ once it's had a proper clean for a car show I'll fall back in love with her.

    Why the snobbery over being confused with an A3?

    From my point of view I wouldn't say it's snobbery. At the end of the day I own an 11 year old £3k Audi so it's nothing to be that snobby about at all. I just get annoyed with uneducated people saying "you have an A3" when I actually have an S3 and there were quite a few differences between the two from the factory.

    Guess so, I see my car (and S3's) as a total bargain, performance for price they are very good at the moment. Nothing to be ashamed of about it being an 11 year old Audi, if you get what I mean.

    "Normal" people always confuse my car with an S3, I just go along with it safe in the knowledge that I could tell them anything and they'd not know any different haha

    I love my s3 as i only started to drive it on wednesday and it feels so much smoother than the a3 most probably because it has a standard exhaust and standard suspension?????

    Agree with the pleasure of being able to say an S3.

    What I disslike it when I ask for part prices over the phone or book in for something where I've not been before and they ask the make of car etc and after I call it an S3 they go on to refer to it as just an A3.

    I'm not snobby by the way lol :D but I own an S3 and like to call it an S3. Pretty sure people don't refer to an RS4 and a sporty A4 avant!!!
