    saw a 3 door black S3 last night - no idea what hue it was but it looked fantastic. i actually got excited when i saw it.

    seen 3 red ones so far [2x 3 dr and 1x 5dr] and a glacier 5dr and the black just looks superb.

    the red is obviously a popular choice due to the audi adverrtising campaign.

    I've not seen any in the south west either. Which is great as they're rare but also not good as I'm hungry to see it!! All this waiting is a good test in patience!

    In a word, no. Simply, early cars (ie the non-4g ones) supported RSAP which means you would need an RSAP compatible phone for that to workCars with 4g (ie all new ones) don't have RSAP and only support having their own SIM card in the slot in the glovebox.

    It's much better with the sim anyway, check out the Audi Connect Sim thread:Audi Connect SIM card choices.

    The answer is 280bhp at the flywheel and 396Nm of torque. That was with a full tank of Tesco Momentum 99.
    So power is down, but torque is up on what's quoted.

    torque is the most important figure, so that's good it's up from supposedly 380Nm standard

    Im not fluent english speaker but doesnt 280bhp measured from wheels mean about 320-330bhp from motor? Drivetrain loss in all wheel drive cars in dyno is about 15%. So 280bhp from wheels sounds excellent result to me.

    280bhp was measured at the flywheel, not the wheels. So power at the wheels will be a lot less, circa 250bhp.

    I don't think so. It's still quicker than my 8P S3 was and that was at Stage 1 with 310BHP.

    Just spoke to Ben and he's nearly done with it and says he's got a surprise for me so maybe! Unless the engine has spectacularly exploded all over his workshop and that's the surprise...

    i'm a bit concerned there's less than the 300hp at the flywheel on good fuel.
    i'd consider an explanation from Audi if I had my lower figures.
    not good, and torque isn't the most important figure, its just one half of the equation, although turbo engines rely on torque, not ultimate power of course.
    disappointing news imo.

    Is it not true that all cars come out of the factory with slightly different figures? Some S3's might be 310bhp, others 280bhp etc...

    I guess the torque is the saving grace here...

    325hp sounds adequate IMHO.

    That's great. How did your insurance company react when you told them?
