    If this is the new model....the answer is that the S3 is faster.

    As Lee said wrong section mate...Try http://audi-sport.net/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=17
    Thats for 8L A3/S3 1996-2003. But if your just wondering if a 1.8 is faster then a S3 (if im thinking right the current model 8P 2006- against a older 8L 1.8) The answer would be no.
    Standard 8P are 261bhp -265bhp and Standard 8L are 210bhp-225bhp (not quite sure on the 8L sorry)

    For some reason it seems to be a very uncommon choice of engine.
