    I really would like a nice pre facelift S3 though, I'm not interested in facelift cars. My current one really pains me with how glitzy and **** everything is.

    Pressing any switch in a pre facelift is like pressing a plunger to blow up a bridge. And I just prefer the look.

    I dunno. :/

    PFL and FL S3s/A3s and B5s use different switches.

    Like Jardo said, the PFL ones are more bulky and plunger like.

    Dashes are totally different, in fact I don't think there is a single item which is interchangable between the two.

    Pre facelift for me is just more 'Audi' in design, I don't know how to explain it. It just looks and feels chunkier and more mechanical.

    It's okay I understand, its because I have a pre facelift...

    I don't knooow.

    I always said that with less than 300bhp S3's were **** and I would rather an A3; and I still stick to that.

    But seeing Westys car go so well and hearing Niki talk about it I am interested again, I have never disputed that S3's aren't nice cars; just that the stock turbo lacked the balls to do them justice.

    I will stick with the A3, I think that's my calling in life. But ploughing money into the A3 that I will never get back doesn't really interest me. Buying an S3 whichbwill always be worth a couple of grand doesn't seem like a bad idea.

    Let's do a deal!

    I think they might be reecesnutrageous, but the illumination is different. I think facelifts have an illuminated dial brightness and pre facelifts don't.
