Much as I love the 184 diesel I have, I've generally always had 'hotter cars'. I miss the excitement of a bit more power. A quick think about past cars made me realise that the quicker cars I've had I have kept the longest. I had a test drive a while ago in an S tronic S3, but I just don't like clutchless cars, I know they suit many but they are not for me. But I did like the car, didn't feel like 300bhp though. I've had the A3 for just over five months so persuading the other half that its a good idea to change has been difficult, perhaps I ought to be a politician! Any way I've agreed a deal with a local Audi dealer to buy an S3 they have on order which he claims is still configurable. Needing to keep the cost down, as I'm retired and buy my own cars I've settled on the spec below, I'm quite happy with it. The choice of colour was difficult, I originally chose Misano which I love, but red cars have always been a tad unlucky for me. So I've decided on Sepang Blue, which is also a lovely colour. Manual S3 Sports Back in Sepang Blue with SD card Sat Nav, comfort pack and folding mirrors. Hopefully for late June or July delivery. My current A3 has the tech pack but I dont either use it much or understand it so It doesn't bother me.
