    S3 advice

    Having recently had a bit of a moment in my 57 plate GTi Edition 30, which wrote it off, I'm in the market for a new motor. Having had an original S3 before, and really liking the Tfsi engine in the golf I'm thinking the new S3 may be the way to go.
    The Ed30 was played with a bit, APR fuel pump, map, milltek TBE, carbonio, forge DV, coilovers, anti-roll bars, 19" BBS CH's, and made 316bhp and 348 ft/lbs of torque, but traction was an issue so again the S3 maybe the solution.
    Lookin for a bit advice, what to look for and what extras are available
    cheers
    Gary

    The audi web site list all the options, favs seem to be the bucket seats and the now standard flat bottom sterring wheel . Plently of other options to choose from as well.

    Did you manage to remove the extras from your golf before it getts commited to the scrap yard - should be able to get some money for them that way - better than the scrappy selling them on !

    At least you're ok!
    S3 is a great car - it won't dissapoint.
    There's quite a few threads on favourite topns for the S3 if you enter a couple of searches using the search fundtion at the top of the page.

    If I was to order another one with money no object I would go for:
    Flat Bottom Wheel (now standard)
    Buckets
    Interior light pack
    Symphony CD
    Bose
    Folding Mirrors
    Sunband on windscreen
    Ipod - though this sucks in terms of functionality, but is handy to have
    Bluetooth handsfree

    Don't think I'd need anything else!!!

    Hope that helps!

    Oh not good - as long as your ok - bits of metal can be replaced - bones are a bit harder to replace !
    Jamiekips list is about right - personally would add sunroof to that as well !

    What a shame.

    I hope you had a GAP policy. You lost much on the mods? Any salvagable?

    I think you'll love the S3. Get a new one with the revised engine and be sure to order Bucket seats...you'll regret it if you don't.

    country lanes, late at night, came round blind corner to find a car waiting to turn right, hit him, my back end swung into the on-coming traffic and got hit by a citroen, knocking me back where i came from.
    just lucky no-one was hurt and i still feel a bit foolish

    Timing chain instead of a belt, more torque (at least true for the base 2.0t anyways), more efficient....

    Plenty more info around the web
