I just registered here hoping to get a general consencus from people who have an opinion or who have owned/own either of the above cars.
I am ready to go ahead and order an S3 on monday, this is the car i would really love to own, but there is a little part of me not sure as ive read the engine is a little horrid sounding and the turbo lags quite badly. Is this just rubbish reviewing or is there a lot of truth in it?
With my options the car is going to drop out at around Ł32k. My other thought, should i get a lot of negative comments is to look seriously at the R32 as i cant find many bad comments, also the DSG gets rave reviews. With the 32K ploughed into an R32 i think i could go for pretty much fully loaded.
The way i feel at the moment is that the S3 is a more exclusive "race bred" raw machine. The golf appears to me flash but rather flabby round the waist. Am i wrong?
Thanks in advance for any comments
P.S - My order for the S3 would comprise:
Black leather buckets
Rain/light sensing pack
other crap i cant remember
