    You weren't going fast at all, I was waiting at the car wash to blast some fresh bird s**t off my TT which I had just washed earlier!! And you went past, I did put the window down to hear you (sad I know but haven't heard one in the flesh yet) but didn't hear much.

    I realised it was you when I saw your pic you posted the other day and recognised the reg.

    I was in past Audi today actually and mine is in production now, hopefully get it 3rd week in Jan.

    I booked the demo S3 for a couple of hours on Monday just to keep me going.

    Looks like a few Aberdeen S3s on here then. I'm hoping mine is with the dealer very shortly, it was built in week 49 (2nd Dec).

    Aran, did you get updates as to where your car was in the run up to delivery?

    I Just had an email before the car was built, after that I had to make a few phone calls on the progress of my car, only took 2weeks to get to the dealer after build though!

    Cut and pasted from this months Evo magazine .....

    Apologies if this feels familiar – and it’s as frustrating for me to keep writing it as it is for you to keep reading it – but the thing that really lets the S3 Saloon down is its steering. The electrical assistance has a nasty synthesised weight to it. It can be adjusted via the different ‘Drive Select’ programs, none of which give more than a fleeting impression of what the front wheels are thinking. There’s a predictable abundance of grip and the chassis has a nice, neutral balance at higher speeds, but the S3 Saloon follows (most of) its forebears in having absolutely no enthusiasm for exploring the area where adhesion starts to fade. The front runs out of grip and basically that’s your lot.

    Can't disagree with any of that were it being spoken of the Sportback.
    Not the end of the world, but definitely flawed and why, as a drivers car, it falls a little behind its competition.

    BMW M135i and MB A45 are the only prestige competition...??

    First is excellent, but won't get me home in winter and specced up to the level of the Audi is more expensive.

    A45 is too expensive and a bit 'blingy' for my liking. Plus it's a Merc so in 3 years time will have missing trim and broken bits.... Do they offer a 5 year warranty?

    S3 is understated, practical and pretty nippy too.

    My S3 is speccd to the max, but it doesn't mean I can't criticise the base product nor am I a fanboy. I think some reality checks are needed here. If more people complain, perhaps audi may listen.....

    To me I think the RS3 will be the car that's aimed at the "drivers car" segment, for me the S cars were the quick family cars that bridged the gap.

    Thankfully I don't rate moto mag journalists as most have agendas. That said I'm sure they aren't wrong but they deal with limits that 99% of owners never will

    Kenny , I disagree. If the golf gti can get an elec diff to work on the GTi then audi must surely try harder. The understeer is disgraceful and the steering sh1te.

    Running 225 tyres is a little odd too, that's a big drop from the 245s on my current A4 quattro....

    Perhaps some of the understeer could be cured with wider profile?

    Was that not the reason the last RS3 ran wider tyres on the front?

    I might have to look for some 22" spinners.....

    Fatter tyres in greasy conditions with the same kerb weight would equal even worse handling and understeer.. All it needed was a proper mechanical differential.

    Wavetrac may be the solution if Graeme confirms availability !?

    it annoys me that ppl compare the a45 amg to the s3 theyre not on the same level

    the s3 is on the level of the m135 and the a250 amg

    the a45 is on the level of the rs3 and the 1m

    rly does irritate me that they compare them all the time theyre not even the same level on price

    Are we talking GTI performance pack here? I re king the s3 will be much quicker round dry or damp track! I still think the add IBS you are looking for point to the RS range rather than the S

    don't know if this is standard on a german car but this radio where the screen should be is HORRID! seems flat bottom steering wheel is optional. unless this is a pre-release photo.




    this is from S3 Sportback

    I guess you mean Renault. I wouldn't worry my brother had a year old renault 19 16v. He bought it from a Renault main dealer. Great when it worked. He had it 6 months and it spent more time in the garage. The last straw was when the electrics cut out whilst driving meaning no power, no braking servo assistance and it tried to throw him into a ditch. It was so bad he rejected it and got his money back.

    Also some poor guy on here had an astra vxr - quite nice looking car - bit silly with 280bhp through front wheels only, insane. think he has had 2-3 gearboxes in a few months and returned it then bought an s3 instead.

    I have had plenty of Peugeots and Fords. Sure, they are better value, will probably corner better and ride better, may come with more kit, but they aren't made as well.

    hahahaha that radio screen! Made me laugh. That is horrid.

    @lee not really. The M135i and S3, yes do compete but not the A250. The A250 is for 125i and GTI.
    Which actually means Merc, don't have a car in this exact competition. So the A45 would be closest. IMO

    Spot on. your point about the bmw is true as I specced one to a similar level to my s3 and it costs more, looks mega ugly and will end up in a ditch in winter which is the best thing for it. Some of these things are missed by reviewers and I am sceptical with reviews anyway as just bought an av amp and totally ignored what hifi.

    Having said that there was a stonking deal on a deal site the other day where someone got 20% off list (i still wouldn't buy it!) but the best deal was for contract hire at an incredible £250/mth for 27+6mths and 10000pa

    Anyone having any insurance issues? I was amazed to find my insurance is going up by just £100.

    Last month, James at Ascot said he could get me 8% off, but id already ordered in Reading at 6%, doh!!

    Might be worth checking with him if you are near. No guarantees but worth a try especially at this time of the year. £900 is pathetic.

    this is from S3 Sportback
    Perhaps it's from the 'standard' trim level that I've seen rumoured, to slot in below SE at some point

    Some of the very early A3's did come without a pop up screen. I remember seeing one, when they first came out!

    on an interior note, the boost gauge has replaced the engine temperature sensor. is there another way apart from sticking your head in the engine bay to see if its reached temperature?? like on the MMI?

    I tried speccing a 1 series online but the configurator online wouldn't work - got very frustrated - it's not difficult to get it right for an Apple product BMW.....

    One of the reasons I have bought yet another Audi.

    i had a Audi A4 Avant in 2008, then went to VW to a Golf GTI. You can't beat audi for quality. (without spending over £100K.) It is a Premium brand after all.
