    Unless you're loaded, go for the S3 mate. I love my 3.2 but unless you've got thousands to turbocharge it you'll get more power for your money on the S3.

    Ooh, Thanks for the quick response. One more small question, and the difference between the 8P and 8L S3. Thanks

    8P is the new shape version with the 2.0T 16V engine and the 8L has the old 1.8 20V engine

    V6 is a serious money when it comes to tuning. S3 turbo lump is much better potential and best of all is lighter! V6 is a massive old heavy design therefore needs a lot of work to make it as good.
    Be patient. English is tough.

    Now:

    61 Audi S3 BE S-Tronic Ibis White: Build Thread.
    / Black Edition pack (SatNav, Bluetooth) / Parking Sensors / Tinted windows / piano inlays and finish / Cruise Control / Interior light pack /
    /Mods: REVO Stage 2+: Revo Intake / Milltek Resonated TBE / LOBA HPFP/ GFB DV+ / Crystal Clear H11 FOGS / Black roof + spoiler vinyl wrap / H&R Anti-roll bars / Superpro ALK /

    It's really all down to personal preference and cash. If I had 20 grand, it'd be turbo charge the v6 rather than a standard 8P S3, but with that money you could completely rebuild an 8L S3 to your own spec.
