    I have a type R and the S3, well actually the Type R is the wifes car. Great car the type R, S3 is better though. And so it should be for the extra it costs.

    I've enjoyed the Type R, wanted something new and always wanted an Audi so thought might as well!

    I wanted black, and the sales guy said there was one just shipped over for any dealer to get, had couple extras I wasnt after originally, but beats waiting couple months so said I'd have it!

    Phantom Black, Bucket Seats, Centre Arm Rest with Phone Prep, BOSE, Ipod, Acoustic Parking, Flat Bottom Steering Wheel...think that was everything.

    Yikes - but, if you can afford it, why not enjoy what you're earning, I know if i'd had the cash when I was 23 i'd have put it in to a motor. As it happens, I loved that Gold GTi, MK2, big bumpers, lowered.... was like super glue on the road!
