I changed my '03 8L Avus S3 in December '06 and went for a M3 CSL, I also bought a B5 A4 TDI to use as a work horse but I obviously don't get much enjoyment out of it......I'm doing quite a few miles with work now and I want a car that I can use every day and get reasonable MPG from i.e. 20-25 ideally.
The only car that fits this bill for me is the S3, I have missed Quattro lots, especially with the crap winter weather we're having....so, basically I'm after a bit of guidance from some 8P S3 owners, I know plenty about the 8L model having owned 2, but I know very little about the new one.
I would be remapping it straight away, what are the average gains with a Bluefin? Any other tuners recommended? I would like Phantom with optics, Recaros, SN and blutooth. Also, if anyone in Northern Ireland has a remapped S3 I would be very grateful for a passenger run in it!
