    S3 vs R32

    So which one would you buy and why?
    Would especially like to hear from peeps who have upgraded (?) from an S3 to an R32...

    I know the S3 is so tempting as its tunable but the noise of the V6 wins every time [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks

    There's a really long discussion about this somewhere - probably in this forum (A3/S3) already........

    Hello mate, go for the S3, the build quality imo is far better than any of the 20 or so Golfs I have owned over the years.

    Its just got the whole package.

    ...apart from the engine note, throttle response, braking ability, turn in, damping and ultimate grip and adjustability...

    Ok, so the S3 is a better quality item, but the R32 has it licked for entertainment.

    Agree with you Dom
    Went out in a 51 plate S3 yesterday and build was superb.
    Felt more robust than the Dub.
    However didnt look anything special and certainly wasnt a head turner, like the R32.
