I hope I am not covering old ground with this thread, but I am sure I will be told if I am. Ok here we go......
I am going to be ordering an S3 BE Sportback in Ibis White, with Open Sky System and pretty much all the bells and whistles, fairly soon and just wonder what the best gearbox option would be to choose ? The reason I ask this is with regard to future potential tuning options for the car. Although I haven't test driven an S-tronic gearbox yet, it does appeal to me. However, if I did go with this option would I still be able to re-map by installing a Bluefin unit at a later date ? Would the S-tronic box be able to handle the additional power ? Would I be asking for trouble with this option and so be better going with a manual transmission ?
Also with regard to the future power hike at a later date, would i be better sticking with the standard suspension rather than going for the magnetic ride option ?
I am going to be investing a lot of money in the purchase so I want to make sure I tick all the right boxes on the options list , so that I do not become bored with the car in a couple of years when i find there is no scope for upgrades.
Thanks in advance for your help and hope you are all having a great festive season
