    AMK and BAM engine codes came with facelift models. ESP standard on facelift models

    The 4WD system is an "on demand" system in which, the cars runs are FWD, when traction is lost at the front, power is sent to the back.

    AMK facelift earliest are X reg, not V reg. Check

    I'm surprised by quite a lot of people who didn't know the S3 is quattro/4WD, and they all come with 6 speed gearboxes, on the 1.8T quattro Sport in earlier models came with 5 speed boxes with the quattro drivechain.
