    No mate, i got the car and the receipt. The 3.2 was farting about again so i had to chop it fast . There comes a point where you have to cut your loses and i reached that point and i needed a warranty and piece of mind before i had to shell out another small fortune

    There is something about the current A3/S3 that is sort of iconic..Even the salesman said he didnt expect the new A3 to match up to this model. Bit like the old 3 series coupe, it was pretty well spot on where as the new one just isnt quite right.

    Hows the subjective performance compare for you, and what's the economy like with the DSG?

    Give me a week or two and i will let you know. On the face of it the economy seems to be over 30 mpg where as the 3.2 was 27-28 usually

    Stunning car paddy. Nice colour combination. Looking forward to an update on how it (out) performs the 3.2 . Only messing I'm sure you'll miss the howl of the V6 but a good replacement and as someone else has said I think the 8p range will be hard to match up to for any future A3s.

    OMG P!!! I'm not on for a few days and this happens!!! . Well well well, you have good taste, its a stunning looking car for sure . Shame for Smelly but she did cause too many problems and cost a bomb!!! Well I will carry the V6 banner for ya as I doubt over here I could change to an S3, not for a good while as the price you would have paid would be a lot less than over here!!!!! Get some mods going, dont let the side down but wow its a gorgeous car. Chuffed for you x

    Looks great - and a sound choice with the auto shifter.

    Your comments about the drive with DSG / S-Tronic are exactly what I thought in the first few weeks. If you're pootling around, it hunts for the highest gear possible and is really docile (goes into 4th in the 20mph zone where I live!).

    I've been "learning" the car a bit more recently and using the paddle shifters in certain situations, like when I want to hear the turbo spool-up on part throttle by holding 3rd from 20mph. I still haven't worked out how to use the launch control feature yet, but it doesn't matter much because the S3 is sooooo much quicker than anything I've rolled-up next to at the lights even without a clutch dumping start.

    I think it's also fair to say that while 6 cylinder N/A engines give a lovely warble, equally they can't give angry high pitch spool-up or wastegate chatter noises like a properly turbo'd 4-cylinder motor. Best get a B8 S4/S5 for the best of both.
