    yeah lot of people said that but i really wasn't aware at the time. i had just returned from an all night flight and couldn't sleep (excited!) so was a bit slow that morning

    i previously owned an 8L S3 so used to hang around that forum.

    uhhmmm.. 270hp to 125...a bit slow? well, after the micra (1.2 auto) anything is fast
    the 8P is soooo much more refined and has better quality. the seats are just as comfy (old one had recaros ) , the suspension is great, engine is super economical and also very easy to live with in traffic, lots of torque low down. the car is also very quiet compared to my S3 (it had a custom exhaust so was quite noisy).

    all told i love this car. only thing is i wish it had the bose system as the bass is a bit weak. other than that i'm totally thrilled, best shape, best color and the best engine (for turkey at least, as the fuel is the moset expensive in the world and the taxation is according to displacement).

    good stuff then on the 'improvements'

    Didnt know Turkey was the most expensive fuel! Damn! Bose 'love' seems to be a hot topic too.

    currently it's 1.47pounds to the liter of 97 octane. it seems i won't be able to do the bose upgrade as it has a million bits which would cost a million quid. oh well.
    lovin' the white S3 btw...

    cheers

    Probably cheaper (and some would say, better) to do an aftermarket upgrade that isnt Bose?
