    Where are all the S3's?

    I drove up the M1 from Milton Keynes, came off at Derby, A and B roads up through the Peak District, up to Sheffield to take my lad out for a birthday lunch, poodled around Sheffield, then back down the M1 to MK....didn't see one other S3. Saw shed loads of M3's, specially in Sheffield! In fact, only other interesting Audi was an S6.

    Where are all the S3's?

    I guess it's because most are usually travelling at warp factor 9, or almost sideways down a back road...

    Whenever i see one around my area i always go to put my hand up, or nod...but something always stops me.

    Probably the fact the driver always look as miserable as sin...

    I know what you mean and whenever I see an S3 in Suffolk, it's always going the other way (usually on the A14)!!!

    I did this when I worked in Banbury as I thought it was a one off.....two and a half months later after waving at a complete stranger five days a week I was glad to get a job elsewhere!

    It because Clarkson thinks hes king of the world and says audi drivers are cocks....and M3 drivers are not....and it happens to be that cocks dont want to be cocks anymore so they all went back to M3s which in actual fact makes them cocks (again).....My theory?
    2006 - A4 - 1997 1.8T 20VS, Full Black Recaro Leathers, Concert, Climate Control, Facelifted, Remus, Front armrest! - Sold
    2007 - A3 20vs -bridge gap motor....
    2008 - Think its time for the Civic Type R.
    2009 - Screw a Type R. Got a VR6 instead (missed even now)
    2011 - Focus St170. < what was i thinking...
    2012 - Lateee 8L S3 with EVERY extra....Broken...other asn members enjoying my parts!

    Did the same journey this weekend...MK, up to Peak District, overnight Sheffield, back from Sheffield to MK. Saw one other S3. Blue one sitting in a queue for a hand car wash (ffs!) near Chapeltown.

    Rare cars which is what made me buy my third. Love them.....the only things i like about the new ones are the seats and front end. Other than that is it an A3 with Quattro? lol answers on a postcard to Audi GMBH. PO BOX - Flat arches.
