    Review of S3 ownership...

    Well well lads, its been a month since i bought my S3 and thought i would share my thoughts with everyone on the forum.My driving experience started with a vauxhall calibra moving onto a golf v6 4motion and after this i bought a very highly modded golf vr6 highline (M19D VR) this was all by the age of 18.I had my VR6 for two years and thought it was a time for a change so at the age of 20 i have bought my S3 and I have to say its one of the best cars i have drove.The build quality and enjoyement of driving is amazing.I have driven various cars i usually have my mates civic type r everyweekend which in its own respect is a remarakable car.Well back onto the subject of the S3, in standard form they are not mindblowingly fast but I do think that they give alot of cars a good run for their money.I think buying my S3 was the best decision i possibly could have made.I would like to take this chance to thank everybody who has offered advice to me and I have to state this is a very good forum!SO RESPECT TO ALL YOU S3 OWNERS OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!

    I think the fact your S3 has 345bhp probably has something to do with the enjoyment factor :-)

    I'm not sure what to think of the S3, I spent months searching for one and ended up flying to Bournemouth to pick this up..




    It's standard apart from a map to around 265 I think and has only done 48k but I'm just not sure about it! The interior is quality and the inside is a nice place to be.. I just think that it's a bit souless and very easy to get used to! I've only had it since the beginning of March and I'm already thinking of selling up.. I've been into VW's for a long time and feel like I want another! So a mint S3 might be up for sale soon! I did the same as you, I bought this as standard and spent a fair few quid on it and then decided to sell for the S3.. I'm not sure taht I did the right thing!!





    Then again.. You do have 345bhp!

    I was mate, didn't go on much though! I spent most of my time on edition38. Cheers, it's a nice car. I sold it for 5500 which is good money in todays market, it had only done 60k and was mint. I spent about 7000 on that car. It only had the Ram Air Induction but the engine was really strong and full of torque, I tested it against a few VR's and it seemed to pull away from them. The noise is phenominal theres nothing like it is there! I was going to charge it but decided to sell up as I went in a charged one and wasnt that impressed.. So decided to buy a car with a turbo!
