    Unhappy Bye Bye S3

    After seven years of ownership my pride and joy has gone to a better place.
    I will miss the wide arches and stance of my 8L and the pull of the Revoed 1.8t engine but the 2 tfsi has replaced it so hopefully some fun times ahead.




    And no I am not planning on leaving just yet,if I wasn't here you'd have nobody to moan about

    Well I have driven the mk 5 gti and I think it's a very capable hot hatch, handles well and has got a punchy engine . When I was going to buy one it was a toss up between the tornado red and the grey metallic I think you chose the right colour mate.

    Did you px your s3 or sell private?

    I have no use for a saloon as we have one already in the family so a hatch is always what fits my bill,I sold privately on auto trader and wasn't a million miles away from the asking price Sean.

    And there was me hoping you were joining us in RS3 land to defeat the replica set once and for all

    Joking aside, good choice, especially the colour apparently red ones add always best.

    I've been sorely tempted to make the same switch myself. I'm intrigued to know what the main differences are between the 8l S3 and a mkV golf, handling and power wise!

    a healthy revo stage one golf gti 2.0 t will regularly make 250-255 bhp and are aggressive in power delivery to say the least. Decent front tyres and few other mods FTW . A dsg stage one shark performance with dsg software will shave a few more tenths of your 0-60 time. Awesome gti sell LSD for them aswell which I imagine would make a massive difference.

    When I was gong to buy one I was just going to go stage one remap as it transforms the car from stock.

    One of the biggest pros of the mkV gti for me is how well it ages, or doesnt for that matter.
    You can see a tastefully modded and styled 05 and you would never ever think it was 8 years old.
    I think the mkVI will be much the same. VW just nailed it on the styling. Subtle and respectable, yet quite brutish.

    You dont hear many people say bad things about them, and the chassis is supposed to be quite a step in the right direction from the mk4.
    The new MkVII is getting the same comments, but my god that one is ugly!

    It's a more rewarding drive though, you can actually use the throttle mid corner, unlike the S3.

    Paul,I was still in denial just before I put the advert up,I scoured for a lock-up so I could keep both,I unashamedly admit I loved my S3 and in my ownership from December 16th 2005 until I sold her she never failed to start once,track days and quarter miles she took in her stride only once did I push her too hard upon entering Inters 2011 on a baking hot day when I broke her DV and had to limp home
