    It's a pity you're not near me as I'd lend you a pair for you to try. They're not cheap but they do work well.

    Have a google for EXO

    When I started looking for a car I had a budget. I have added a couple of things, but nothing too much.

    there is some people with very deep pockets on here! I totally want to add Tech pack, B&O, Pano but each of these are a lot of money to me, and no matter how much I read about how good they are I just can't find any more money on my money tree!

    darn I tried the stronic and liked it but do I like it more than the manual hmm. I was impressed so may add as I can see what the fuss is about now. had an approx. 120 mile roundtrip to test one though

    "Don't think, do"!

    if you like it just add it and have a go for a few years. I presume you found some back roads to try to lovely paddle downshifting coming up to bends and full on attack up shifts with "boompf" in between gears then?

    no but I made my mind up pretty quick - doesn't feel like an auto at all and its quite nice to have both hands on the sterring wheel at warp speed - the big difference is not 1st gear pull away but the incredible 2nd gear onward and no let up in power delivery

    - the only thing I still find odd when engaging park and it moves a small amount - I find that a little unnerving - you may find it crazy but I didn't use the paddles but ill be find I play lots of games on consoles hahaha - ive just got retrain my brain from 26 years of doing something that I do on "auto pilot"

    Have driven many miles with Audi S Tronic and Tip tronic and when 'driving' for real nothing beats a Manual in my opinion.

    I presume you've had a good test drive of the new S3, my test drive was in the 184 Quattro s tronic but it was so long ago I've forgotten a few things.

    With regards to the paddles shape and size can you remember being able to flick them whilst turning (at a light angle of course), making it easy to change gear whilst powering out of a corner?

    Mr Pillow..

    FYI The paddles are actually attached to the wheel and it is a simple case of 'they stay put' and the wheel moves..

    Still prefer manual!

    Ah okay, are they reasonably long 'paddles' then or are they like smallish buttons?!

    I originally removed the Sports Suspension option from the S-Line due to 'being sensible'. After thinking about that for a few weeks I put it back on and then a week later went all out and selected the S-Line suspension set up...
